A Humble Beginning

The company's mercurial growth can be attributed to its founder Mr. K.A.Velayudan and his wife who have got years of rich experience and depth of knowledge in the fields of Papads. They made it possible to penetrate the nook and corner of all parts of India labeling Ambika, a household name.

It all started way back in 1910. An agricultural family in Parpukara, Kerala started a small time agri business of their produce. Subsequently they migrated to South Indian Cultural City, Madras (now Chennai) and started making and selling the South Indian's favorite petite food - Papad. Later they achieved a brand name "AMBIKA" in 1940 and started marketing it in a systematic way. The quality standard set by the founder Mr. K.A. VELAYUDAN made the brand ascend in stature to an international level brand and today is the benchmark for many others entering this field.

Under the able stewardship of K.A. VELAYUDAN the company grew in leaps and bounds and the brand's popularity spread to various parts of the country. Today, his two sons Mr. K.V. Sukumar, & Mr.K.V.Vijaya Ragavan ably and professionally govern the company. The success story continues with the clientele spreading from kanyakumari to Kashmir and also Abu Dhabi to New York.
