Over a Century old a tiny Sweetmeat Shop existed on a land owned by Raja Kamala Prasad Mukherjee. Late Ganguram Chaurasia came from a remote village in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh to Kolkata in the 1880's. He was a skilled Halwai and could make mouth watering Sweets. He took up a job in the shop owned by the Raja and used to supply Sweets to the Rajbari. However, when the Government decided to evict the shop in order to construct a road, the Raja, pleased with his service, allotted him a small plot of land near Maniktola north Kolkata, where he set up a small sweetmeat shop in 1885.
Thus started Ganguram, a legend in the past and present sweetmeat industry of Kolkata. From the setting up of the shop gradually he expanded innumerable branches in and around Kolkata. His Sweets became synonymous with Bengali Culture and most celebrations were not complete without the Sweets being supplied by Ganguram. He had the distinction of serving his range to International celebrities such as Queen Elizabeth of England, President of Bulgaria & Knischer of Russia and Honorable Chou En Lai of China and many more down the years. Ganguram's dream of building a brand consciousness in Sweets became a reality and today his later generations are proud of providing the traditional quality, trust, and never ending varieties of Sweets and Snacks to the people of Kolkata.
Today, they have over twenty outlets providing over 200 delicacies prepared daily in out mechanised factory in Kolkata which has qualified chemists to ensure the best food materials and ingredients go in to making our products. This is coupled with efficient production facilities managed by skilled labour, who are constantly developing newer and newer varieties of Sweets which were never made before with Chhena (Cottage Cheese), Kheer, Khowa or fried varieties. This process is being actively monitored and implemented by the Research and Development team.
Ganguram's products today are regularly being catered to reputed Corporate Houses, prestigious Government Organisations, 5-Star Hotels, Multi Cuisine Restaurants etc. They have the rare honour of being official suppliers to the Hon'ble Govt. of West Bengal's Residence & Secretariat.
