Director - M K Agrotech Pvt. Ltd.
Founded by first-generation entrepreneur and industry veteran, Subhan Khan; MK Agrotech had a humble beginning from Srirangapatna in the Mandya district of Karnataka, way back in 1976. Guided by the principles of purity & transparency, MK Agrotech is India’s finest food company that prides itself on ensuring the health & wellness of its consumers. Its flagship brand, Sunpure, launched in 1996, is a household name in the edible oil segment and continues to expand its presence across key markets in the Southern region.
The company is now a 1000-plus strong team with an annual turnover of close to INR 3,600 crore. From edible oil and wheat flour, sugar, Chilly Powder, Turmeric Powder & Coriander Powder, MK Agrotech has emerged as a leading food company that touches an average of 2.5 lakh families on a daily basis and is closely engaged with more than 800 distributors, which is growing with each passing day.
Sunpure has the distinction of being India’s first chemical-free, processed and physically refined oil, with government patented technology. Sunpure has made a conscious decision to prioritise the health and well-being of consumers. Sunpure Oil is free from harmful chemicals and is also enriched with Vitamins A, D and E. The biggest USP is its purity, powered by the best of technology and tradition.
Recently, Sunpure also acquired Riso, a leading edible oil brand from Maharashtra, in a bid to further strengthen its presence in key markets. In FY 2022-‘23, Sunpure registered 15% growth, while expanding its footprints across Karnataka, Maharashtra, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Goa and Tamil Nadu.
Currently, Sunpure range of products include Sunpure Sunflower oil, Sunpure Filtered Groundnut Oil, Sunpure Refined Groundnut Oil, Sunpure Rice Bran Health, Sunpure Palmpure (imported refined Palmolein oil), Sunpure Sugar (refined via a sulphur-free process), Sunpure Vanaspati, Sunpure swaad (whole wheat Atta produced using Swiss technology), Sunpure Red Chilli Powder, Sunpure Turmeric Powder and Sunpure Coriander Powder. The recent addition is Sunpure Mustard Oil.
In an intensely competitive FMCG landscape of India that has the most established global players and domestic biggies vying for market share, MK Agrotech has many unique differentiators. Sunpure is India’s first sunflower oil brand that is processed without the use of caustic and phosphoric acid along with being produced from the highest quality seeds using wind energy for offsetting the carbon footprint. MK Agrotech’s refining technology, therefore, has received a patent from the Indian government. As an environmental-friendly brand, it generates renewable energy for its plants while keeping its packaging material recyclable.
