Established in 1971, by our founder Sri. S. R. Kannapiran Nadar, our company has been successful in delighting the customers through timely delivery and impeccable quality. We started our journey with the focus on fulfilling the dry red chillies (red pepper) market demand in the Indian domestic market. Growing with the good relationship with all our business peers, we expanded our business into other foodstuffs markets and diversified into various businesses such as safety matches, paper products, textile fabrics, and chemicals. The continuous improvements we created in all the departments enabled us to reach the international arena, and we are now successfully creating partners in the worldwide markets such as Malaysia, France, UAE, and USA. Apart from these international markets, we are well-known for our quality and commitments in all parts of the nation with all the leading food-processing industries.

With the roaring success, the Company has diversified into various other sectors, and some of the milestones in our journey..

With our head office located at Virudhunagar in TamilNadu, we have recently opened up branches at Guntur in Andra Pradesh (since 2004), and Kollam (formerly Quilon) in Kerala (estd. 2006), extensively for back-end operations such as sourcing, processing, and warehousing of spices.


We are headquartered at Virudhunagar, a developed town in the state of TamilNadu in India. Virudhunagar is just an hour drive from the international airport at Madurai, and a couple of hours drive from the harbor at Tuticorin, making it a well-connected place.
