Our company name; Farsan has been derived from the Gujarati language, no gourmet meal in Gujarat is complete without a few savoury accompaniments- known as Farsan. They play an important role in complementing the taste, texture, colour, and presentation of a meal. A great deal of time and effort is taken to prepare the Farsan and only the best spices are used- a philosophy which we employ in our company so that you can be assured a Superior Quality product every time.
During 1998, Farsan Ltd was established and started a Pilot operation from home, manufacturing Indian Savouries like Samosas and Spring rolls. The past premises at 42 Hastings Road was acquired in January 1999 and after fitting it to high standard for food manufacturing it came into production during April 1999, initially with only 2 employees.
It has been company’s policy to introduce at least two products every year, after conducting proper market research and production criteria. Therefore further products like Paneer Samosa, Paneer Spring roll, Coconut Pattis, Aloo Tikki and Harabhara Kebab have been introduced. Our company believes in providing and catering food for all faiths and communities hence our fast selling products like Farari Pattis and Jain Samosa.
