The story of Kirtiraj starts well before that time. Mr. Patel’s mother started the business, selling papad from home. Seeing her struggle, he decided to create an innovative solution to expand the business. He designed and produced India’s first successful automatic papad making machine. Fast forwarding to 2019, he has now grown the company to international levels with over by exporting his inventions and innovations to countries like U.S.A, U.K, Canada, Australia, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Tanzania and Nepal. With his guidance and leadership, the company has not only dominated the papad industry but is starting to become a leader in the automized roti machine, pain puri machines and khakra machines.
Mr. Patel lives authentically and transparently, setting achievable and measurable goals for his team, and championing his people and brand. Taking the hardest tasks for himself, coming in early, staying late, and leading by example - these aren't just catch phrases at Kirtiraj, this is how he makes it happen.
