About Punjabi Ghasitaram Halwai, Mumbai
Spreading sweetness since 1916
Founded in 1916 by Ghasitaram Bajaj in Karachi, Pakistan, Punjabi Ghasitaram Halwai began with the motive of offering total customer satisfaction with superior-quality sweets and namkeen made with the purest ingredients. High standards and services helped it survive and flourish in pre-Independence era. In the 1947 Partition, Bajaj’s son, Goverdhandas, left the sprawling store behind and relocated to the upcoming city of Bombay. He breathed new life into the business as it started afresh with a store in Kalbadevi that very year.
The family business, with over 12 retail outlets across the city and a flourishing export trade with various countries, was taken over by Vippan G Bajaj in 1978. Today it boasts a state-of-the-art micro-laboratory at its massive factory, where stringent checks on raw materials and finished goods are conducted to maintain outstanding quality. In-house food technologists and microbiologists assist in constant innovation and quality enhancement. As an ISO 2200:2005-certified company, it also ensures that employees receive training on Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points to take timely and appropriate action when needed.
The brand today specialises in a number of dry-fruit sweets such as pure kaju katli, dry-fruit anarkali, anjeer barfi, dry-fruit nutkhut, and mix kaju moons. It also offers special tinned sweets such as gulab jamun and rasgulla in addition to regional delicacies such as Mysore pak and mohanthal. While emphasising on premium, unique, and popular products along with constant upgrade and customer satisfaction, 100-year-old Ghasitaram continues to earn the trust of people.
