Our history begins in 1940, when late Mr. Gopal Karandikar established the company Pearl Products Company Private Limited in Mumbai. The company was a pioneer (first company in India) in manufacturing Tapioca Starch, Glucose and Modified Starches. During that era the company had the privelege to serve prestigious clientele like Sandoz, Corn Products Mahindra and Mahindra , Shivaji Works etc. However, in 1992 due to internal crisis the company had to shutdown its business.
The rich heritage of manufacturing modified starch was later taken forward by Mr. Anand Karandikar (Director, Pearl Products). Along with the starch business he also ventured into manufacturing Cashew Nut Shell liquid and then established Karandikars Cashell Private Limited in Navi Mumbai.
In 2010, Dr.Satyajit Karandikar joined the business after completing his Msc. from UK and Marie Curie funded European PhD program in Organic Chemistry. Under his guidance the company set its vision to deliver breakthrough products and services using organic chemistry. To reflect our vision and present ourselves appropriately, the company's name was changed to Karandikars Orgochem Private Limited in May,2019.
Today , we manufacture and supply starch to diverse industries like Textiles, Paper packaging, Concrete admixture (Construction), Ceramics, Adhesives and Foundry. We have a dedicated Research and Development team to continuously innovate new products to meet the customer requirements.
