Legacy is not leaving something for people. It’s leaving something in people – A popular quote by Peter Strople, definitely stands true when it comes to Vinod Cookware, a brand that hasrevolutionized the traditional Indian Kitchens, with a modern avatar.
It all started in the year 1962, when Mr. Rajeram Agarwal laid the foundation of Vinod Cookware. While working as an employee at a stainless-steel cookware firm, Mr. Agarwal saw a huge scope in the untapped market of the cookware industry. He discovered that the cookware segment was unorganized and fragmented due to which the existing brands had limited scope and the quality that they provided was merely satisfactory. Where other Brands the market were not able to mark a foothold and create a permanent place for themselves Mr. Rajeram envisioned setting up an empire and bridge the vacuum in the Cookware Industry. He started off with asmall stainless-steel utensil manufacturing unit at Bhandup in Mumbai, with Pressure Cookers. While Mr. Sunil Agarwal, the second-generation key business holder was actively an integral part of the company, He along with brother Mr. Anil Agarwal took up the baton of the brand after his father’s – Mr. Rajeram’s Agrawal’s demise in 2010 making the brand a household name not just in India but also internationally.
