Keventers is India’s first very own Made in India brand. Established in 1925 by Edward Keventers, Keventers then became famed for its milkshakes. Acquired by Ram Krishna Dalmia in 1940, the brand was then revived in 2014 by Aman Arora, Agastya Dalmia and Sohrab Sitaram. Keeping the vintage tone alive with the milkman’s bottles, the trio have revamped the brand in a way that strikes a chord with the modern day consumers. Presently Keventers has over 90 outlets all across the country, and is well on its way to opening more in India as well as abroad.
In 1925, Edward Keventers, a Swedish dairy technologist, established his private limited Dairy Company in India. Following this, Keventers slowly started emerging as a prominent Dairy Industry in India. Rapid expansion of the business followed by the establishment of branches in Aligarh, Darjeeling, Calcutta, Shimla and later in Delhi.
In addition, numerous outlets were set up in Bombay, Karachi, Lahore, Nainital, Mussorie, Dehradun, Ranchi and Rangoon. Model piggeries in Aligarh, Ghum and Taradevi were developed in conjunction with the dairy business. Apart from this, dairy appliances were imported and sold, including the well known Alfa-Laval cream separator, a boon to the thousands of dairymen who had previously no mechanical means of separating cream from their milk.
By the 1940’s, Ram Krishna Dalmia acquired the Keventers dairy project and a company was created by the name ‘Edward Keventers Successors’. After this point, things began to escalate quickly. As the city of New Delhi grew and changed, so did the area of Chanakyapuri, in which the factory was located. It became a prime diplomatic area. Keventers therefore was no longer allowed to run its dairy factory there.
