Legacy of Laljee Godhoo & Co.
The company was established way back in the year 1894 by Shri Laljee Godhoo. During the initial days, we deals only in Asafoetida Lumps that was manually prepared by our hundreds of workers who do churning by hands. Initially, the product is sold only in Mumbai after which it is started selling in South India. All this happened because of Shri Khimji Laljee, belongs from a Gujarati family settled in Chennai.
By establishing our first branch at Nagapattnam (currently non-operational), followed by Kumbakonam and then Chennai, the organization opened its doors to the South Indian markets. In order to meet the rising demands in South India, Shri Kumud Chandra Harikrishna Bhatt and Shri Umakant Vahalia came forward to help us.
The years 1976-1978 brought a turning point for Laljee Godhoo & Co. as we have wished to provide our customers with Asafoetida in powder form. In the year 1978, with the help of Shri Ajit Khimji Merchant we are able to bring forth 50gm bottle of Compounded Asafoetida for households.
In this world of commercialization and expansion, we strictly believe in maintaining purity through raw ingredient which separates LG from other brands.
