THE SPICY STORY
India is known across the world for its variety of spices. For centuries, India has remained the centre of attraction due to its exotic spices and food. At Katdare Masale, we are the proud creators of this authentic taste through a host of our products. Our spice blends have delighted customers across Maharashtra with their amazing quality, extraordinary taste, rich aroma and memorable flavours. Katdare Masale was started in 1958 in Satara, by late Shri. Balkrishna Katdare and his wife late Smt. Pramilabai Katdare as a home activity with the purpose of introducing a few products for daily consumption. Soon, the small initiative took up speed as the customers’ mouth publicity scaled up the demand. Katdare Masale came to become a high scale manufacturing facility, though still at home.
The next generation – Mr. Anil Katdare (current Chairman) and his wife Mrs. Shailaja Katdare, came in with a dream of reaching every Maharashtrian household with their products. They took it forward as a cottage industry by employing needy women & manufacturing in the house premises since 1972.
Katdare Masale was founded on the principles of morality and authenticity, more so because it is part of the food industry. The purity and quality of our products are vital to us as we believe that customers depend on us to recreate the authentic taste of various traditional dishes. To win over more and more people, we are not only committed to quality and consistency but also provide diversified products like Spices, Spice Blends, Pickles, Chutneys & Flours.
Striving to achieve our goal, we are 100% committed to serving our customers with pure, authentic and quality products, consistently. Katdare Masale, today has flourished to serve across the state of Maharashtra, through advanced manufacturing and lean management technology.
Katdare is not just about ‘spices’ because to spice up anything in life requires passion and that is what makes brand Katdare the ultimate tastemaker in Maharashtra today.
