About Moddy's Confectionery, Ooty
The Art Of Making Perfect Chocolate
There is an interesting story of how a confectionery called Modern Store based in Ootacamund, or Ooty as it is popularly known in Tamil Nadu, became the Moddy’s that we love today. This hypermarket selling exclusive condiments and food items was first conceptualised by Janardhan Rao on 15th December 1951. It was a popular haunt for those who wanted nothing but the best. This area had many British settlers and during the course of his interaction with them, Rao met a few chocolatiers who shared their secret of making perfect European chocolates. Soon he was making and selling his own varieties. What started as a small shop, it now caters to multinational companies, banks, and retailers in major Indian cities. It even specialises in customisation and supplies to places such as Sydney and Singapore.
This family-owned enterprise continues to be one of India’s best chocolate manufacturers, with people from India and abroad thronging their 5,000-sqft shop at all times. Their chocolates are famous owing to the use of finest ingredients, dedicated and skilled employees, best hygiene practices, and the most modern machineries. This FSSAI-registered brand produces 500 kg of 100% pure vegetarian chocolates on a daily basis. The enterprise also markets choicest spices, herbs, special teas, honey, and essential oils.
The brand under the management of M Muralidhar Rao, Janardhan’s son, is today the pride of Ooty with over 100 exotic chocolates including bonbons, pralines, fudges, truffles, and sugarfree offerings. Besides chocolates - which have gone places because of authentic recipes and reasonable rates - the store is also a household name when it comes to herbs, spices, special teas, honey, and essential oils.
