Nilgai Foods Success Story
Extracting flavors of India
NILGAI’s most popular product is PICO Bhut Jolokia – India’s Spiciest chilli sauce.
Main focus of Nilgai foods is jams and chilli sauce. India grows a variety of chilies which was one of the reasons they chose to use local produce as people in India love experimenting with their tastes.
“Equinox’s professional standard has been an exclusive technical support for Nilgai Food products like its Shelf-life testing, nutritional break-ups.”
Excellence in store
The products at Nilgai absolutely do not have added flavors or colors. Some of their products don’t have any preservatives in it; the jams contain more fruits, less sugar. PICO has two unique vegetable jams including the Red Pepper Jam & a sweet chili base including tomatoes, ginger and garlic in it. They use natural ingredients like Vinegar, Sugar or just heat-filling and capping. They use 100% natural tomatoes for a sauce by pulping them raw which gives improved unique taste, color and experience.
“As a brand we are all about innovation.” quoted Arjun Gadkari (President), Nilgai Foods.
