Jayanti(Est. 1940), headquartered in Bangalore is a family-owned, professionally managed, agro-commodities and food-business group. Today, Jayanti is a leading manufacturerexporter of Value-Added Spice, Decaffeinated Tea and Natural Caffeine having operational base in India and Turkey with a 1,000+ workforce.
Jayanti strives to make a difference in people’s lives through farm-to-fork quality management for delivering food-safe products in the least possible steps.
Over the last decade, Jayanti has firmly established its credentials as Herbs and Spice Specialist Group with full supply chain traceability. We can now seamlessly manage the supply chain with backward linkages into farming and forward integration into retailing.
We believe farm-to-fork quality management is the way forward for food industry. All sensitive items are farmed under close supervision of inhouse agronomists to detect and mitigate problems right at the beginning of the supply chain.
Jayanti’s sustainable farming initiatives in India and Turkey are focussed on fomenting a change at the grass-roots level. We are members of IDH, Netherlands and Sustainable Spice Initiative (SSI), Europe. As technical team members at ESA (European Spice Association) and ASTA (American Spice Trade Association) we stay ahead of competition by keeping abreast of latest developments and ever-evolving food-safety regulations.
