(i) Bagrrys India Limited (known as Bagrry’s) is an Indian multinational FMCG food-manufacturing company which manufactures the high-fiber breakfast cereals and health foods, headquartered in New Delhi, India. The company has two food brands in its portfolio ‘Bagrry’s‘ and ‘Lawrence Mills’.
They are one of the leading brands of health foods and breakfast cereals in the Indian subcontinent. With a tagline of ‘Let’s put health first,’ they make products that are healthy, honest, innovative and of exceptional quality. Bagrry’s has been a pioneer in India for products such as muesli, oats, bran and the range now includes many more healthy foods. For over 20 years they’ve aimed at setting new standards in innovation, responsible nutrition, and quality manufacturing. Over the years, they have created products that have helped the consumers live a fit and healthy lifestyle.
(ii) The inspiration behind Bagrry’s came from the writings of none other than Mahatma Gandhi. The founder, Mr. Shyam Bagri, in his early days, came across a passage from Gandhi Ji’s book ‘India of My Dreams’ that elucidated the nutritive value of ‘choker’ or wheat bran which gets lost in processed foods. From there on he embarked on his journey to create the Bagrry’s range of products that are innovative, natural and honestly healthy.
(iii) USP of the Company
It all starts from sourcing only the finest ingredients from across the world. At Bagrry’s, quality is an obsession and they buy only the best ingredients to make it into packs. For example, they carefully select oats from the British countryside and all almonds come from the sun-kissed fields of California.
They use all-natural ingredients and ensure that the nutrition in the products is derived from a natural source, be it whole grains such as oats, natural honey, real freeze-dried fruit pieces or fiber-packed bran. Even the chocolate they use in the products, is free from any artificial flavors and the antioxidants that carefully preserve our products are all-natural as well.
