Remembering Our Founder, Mr. Bharat Narayan
On Oct. 3, 2019, we remember Mr. Bharat Narayan, Founder of Hunter Foods, who established the first snacks factory and manufacturing unit in Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai, in 1985.
He truly had a remarkable life: he was named by Mahatma Gandhi and spent lots of time in his early years with Gandhiji; he became an avid mountaineer and sportsman and held an all-Indian record in thermo-gliding; he moved to Dubai to work closely with Shaikh Rashid to build over 8,000 houses from mid 70s to early 80s; he then found Hunter Foods and established the brands Safari, Aladin and Alibaba with all their quality and tasty chips, which have been the beloved household snacks until today.
He sadly passed away in June 2019. He will always be fondly regarded as a great mentor to many people who started in F&B industry in Dubai; an innovator, a firm believer in quality and a trusted, helping friend to the industry peers; and a respected leader who was full of integrity and strong principles.
We, at Hunter Foods, will always be guided by his vision and values, while taking the company to greater heights by manufacturing the widest range of innovative, alternative, Better For You snacks in the Middle East and Asia.
