Himalaya Bakery was founded by our great grandfather C.Madhavan and his son C.M.Kunjhupilla .Both of them had been in the coir industry at Anchalumoodu in Kollam district. They usually came to Alleppey on business by boat. During one of these overnight journeys, the idea of a new business occurred to them.
They made up their minds to turn to the baking industry. What drove them to leave their traditional coir industry to choose the new one might have been the scarcity of food during the post second world war period. Besides they had the ability, resources and determination required for success in the line of business they chose now. Anyway it was a good decision that led to the founding of the Himalaya Bakery in Alleppey in 1948.
