Once upon a time, an old Englishman had earned a name for himself for the luscious butter he made in Vanarpet area of Coonoor,
nestled amidst the hills of Nilgiris.
Muthusamy Mudaliar, a young and enterprising man from Coimbatore had heard a lot about him. As a mail runner for the British in colonial India, he would carry letters and cheques from Coimbatore to the hill stations of Ooty and Coonoor. But he would be flooded with requests to carry Dairy products back. One day he decided to buy out the business of the Englishman. Thus in 1905 was born ‘The Nilgiris Dairy Farm Limited.’
In 1936, he moved his shop to its iconic location at Brigade Road, Bangalore. The fresh Dairy products, breads and cakes became the talk of the town. Soon, Mudarliar opened many more in Erode, Coimbatore and Chennai. And the rest as they say is history.
Today there are over 150 stores in cities and towns to the east of the Nilgiris Hills. Perfected for over 100 years, the exclusive range of over 400 Dairy, bakery and food products is crafted with much love and care to delight every home – just as it was 100 years ago.
