Late Shri Shantilal Amrutlal Thakkar started an edible oil business by the name "Shantilal Chunilal". At that time oil was sold in barrels without any brand.


Converted to partnership firm “Shantilal Chunnilal Manufacturing Division” & launched first-of-its-kind edible oil brand "SWAD Filtered Groundnut Oil" in Nagpur region.


This bold move faced severe criticism in the market and no-one believed that branded oil could actually be sold to the consumer. It took us fairly long time to establish ”Swad” in the market and change the minds of the consumer to buy packed oil.


Launched Premium quality Soyabean in the brand name of Ankur as well as Swad


“Shantilal Chunnilal Manufacturing Division” converted to "Shantilal Oils Private Limited and took over the brand “Swad”.


Launched "Swad Refined Sunflower Oil"


Launched premium quality "Swad Refined Soybean Oil"


Launched "Swad Refined Ricebran Oil"


Yet another bold move by moving into uncharted lands and expanding our geographical consumer base.
