Our Chairman’s Message

We are ever in pursuit of becoming a Customer’s Companion in his Growth Journey by offering Uncompromising Quality, Reliability and Sustainability in products and services.

On behalf of the Acid India Group, I deem it to be a matter of immense pleasure and privilege to talk to you through this portal of Acid India Family. No wonder, I feel so glad and fulfilling to realize the fact that our company is able to be a part of millions of lives in India through our food related products in their everyday use.

We are proud of our heritage and remember with fondness all our predecessors since the 1970s, who had taken sincere efforts and made substantial contribution to the growth of this Company that has brought it to the stage and status where it is now. In sustaining this meritorious patrimony, our present teams of vibrant and trained professionals in various departments have been working strenuously towards that one firm objective of proposing and delivering the right kind of tailor made solutions to customers by understanding their needs and requirements.

One of my favorite quotations, that very often keeps ringing in my head and that fuels my own self to enthusiasm and motivation is that:

“When I Lost My Excuses, I Found My Results”

We as a pioneering trading house of a comprehensive array of food ingredients and industrial chemicals, have confronted ups and downs in the ever changing and ever evolving global circumstances. Though 2020-2021 was marked not only by its challenges due to COVID-19, but also clearly moulded us as individuals and as an enduring organization to stay robust and immune in the new normal economic scenario. The aftermath of COVID-19 in the form of safety protocols, financial fluctuations, manpower uncertainties, dull markets, lower conversion rates, higher attrition rates or stringent material demands, nothing stood as an excuse to our people from dispatching professional services to our stakeholders. We positioned ourselves to taking greater interests in the interests of our consumers and doing our best to deliver customer satisfaction on a consistent basis.

Moreover, the emergence of new product trends in the market characterized by digitalization and the revolution in customer preferences for good, truly has been the integral part of our company’s growth and transformation. Bearing in mind the aspiring goals of our customers, We analyzed our product portfolio and partnered with key MNCs across the globe to provide world class products to Indian customers both in terms of quality and deliverance. Now that we are catering to 20+ industrial segments with a basket of 20+ product categories, 300+ individual products with 10 operational hubs across India, certainly there is no turning back from our vision “To become the preferred Global Conglomerate offering unique and value added solutions to all industries and mankind to their delight”

Having said this, Days are not far when our Company will continue to learn more and explore ways to make footprints in the manufacturing industry as well, while continuing to find newer and better insights to address customer needs through our trading expertise. We are ever in pursuit of becoming a Customer’s Companion in his Growth Journey by offering Uncompromising Quality, Reliability and Sustainability in products and services.

Once again thank you for visiting our website and taking your valuable time to read my thought.

Looking forward for a longer & stronger business relationship.

Have a nice day.

Mr. Nitin J Asher
