The brand “Adukale” started in a room and now has become a 7000 sq feet factory. The brand was started by Ravindra, Nagaratna Ravindra and Malathi Sharma who are all co-founders of Adukale. The brand offers blended spices, ready to eat namkeens, and instant foods of Sankethi cuisine.
The Sankethi cuisine is very different from the general south indian fare we eat. They are a unique blend of people from Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala so naturally that reflects in their unique cuisine as well.
They offer a wide range of products from pohas and upmas to namkeens and chutney powders. The products are available in more than 100 outlets in bangalore and are absolutely preservative free.
And that’s not all,” says Malathi Sharma, Co-founder of Adukale. She adds, “The blend of different cultures makes our food unique. When we talk of sambar powder or rasam powder, we are not just talking of the spices that go in to make them, but also the temperature at which they are roasted and the consistency in which they are blended.”
The founders also maintain that Adukale has been profitable for them since the start and the company hopes to make 7-8 crores by the end of the FY 20. They are planning to launch in US and UK soon too.
