Company Profile

Lotus Chocolate Company Limited is a public limited company, incorporated on October 3, 1988. The company was promoted by the popular Telugu film actress, Smt. T. Sarada. She teamed up with a well-known technocrat, Vijayaragavan Nambiar and established a state-of-the-art facility at Nasthipur village, about 60 km away from Hyderabad.

Lotus Chocolate Company was soon listed on the Bombay and Hyderabad Stock exchanges and witnessed tremendous support from the investing public. The Company saw an opportunity in specialty fat chocolates and tied up with Sunshine Allied Investments Limited, Singapore, which has an expertise in specialty fat chocolates. Subsequently, the company launched the Chocotreat product range in the Indian market under the brand name of Kandos.

The company is engaged in the business of manufacturing, buying, selling, import and export of all kinds of chocolate products, chocolate confectionary, derivatives of cocoa and beverages etc.

In 1995 Sunshine Allied Investments Limited merged with Network Foods International Ltd., which is part of the prestigious Malaysian United Industries (MUI) Group that subsequently became the majority equity partner in Lotus Chocolate Ltd.

Over the years, various moulded and panned products under the brand names of 'Kandos' and 'Tango' became popular with consumers in South and Central India. At the same time, the company's range of pure cocoa butter chocolates, and derivatives like cocoa butter and cocoa powder penetrated into the industrial markets as well as bakeries and the top 5 Star hotel kitchens in India.

In 2008, two Hyderabad based entrepreneurs, Mr. Prakash Pai and Mr. Anantha Pai , bought over the total equity share from NFIL, thus making Lotus Chocolate Company Limited, an Indian owned entity.

The Company's manufacturing facility is located at Doulatabad, about 60 kms from Hyderabad in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The best of imported machinery from Germany, UK, Denmark & Italy is used to generate 3500 MT per annum of Cocoa beans and derivatives like Cocoa Butter & Cocoa Powder and around 3000 MT per annum of moulded, panned and industrial chocolate products.
