When a management student Hari Nagendiran wanted to satisfy his craving for chocolate, he stopped by a retail store to pick some up. He liked the chocolates. But Hari did not love it. This was enough to make him start a chocolate manufacturing unit to deliver only quality chocolates. And, thus was born ‘Chocolate Teddies’ in 2012.
Having researched about the nuances of manufacturing chocolates, Hari purchased the necessary machinery and equipment and set up his chocolate manufacturing factory in Pachapalayam in Coimbatore. With Chocolate Teddies Hari turned entrepreneur and from then on there has been no looking back.
He has stuck to his promise of delivering quality chocolates. But his innovation is also a good attraction. His edible chocolate logos are in huge demand in the corporate circles.
“Using special machinery we print the logo of the respective companies on the white milk chocolate base,” he says.
Another innovative product is his unique and edible chocolate photo frame that is also made from milk chocolate. This he says is a preferred gifting option. Come the wedding season and the demand for gifts given to guests at the wedding soars. He shares with us that for a client based in Mumbai, he received an order to create milk chocolates with customized wrappers in a week’s time. “The number of chocolates that we were required to make ran into thousands. We had to also pack them in individual boxes and the consignment had to be shipped to Mumbai. My team and I delivered the order on time and we are happy with the feedback about the chocolates from guests,” he says.
His entire product range can be viewed on http://www.chocolateteddies.com/. Through his website Hari takes orders for his range of innovative chocolates that can be delivered across India. The website also offers users a secure payment gateway option.
