Company roots began with a small shop in the holy city of Nasik dealing in special variety of spices. This was when the journey of adding flavours to everyday food began. Emphasis was on developing innovative products which were not readily available in the market. Soon the popularity of the products increased so much that the company felt the need to start its own manufacturing unit. These special spices required for market niche were distributed under its newly created brand RAM BANDHU MASALE.
Taking more professional approach the promoters incorporated a public limited company, Empire Spices & Foods Ltd (ESFL) in 1994. The company started with two manufacturing units around Nasik for manufacturing and distribution of superior quality spices, condiments and specialized food items with products being marketed under the brand names RAM BANDHU & RBM. New state of art manufacturing units were added thereafter. A full-fledged professional team takes care of all departments at the Nasik Corporate & Mumbai registered office.
Today, Ram Bandhu is widely preferred and acceptable brand having a diverse product range available in various sizes. It has a well recognized and established marketing network across 10 states in central and western India covering almost half million retail outlets with a support of 300 plus field staff. Company is also engaged in exports to USA, with additional interest from other countries for Ram Bandhu products.
