our story

Global Consumer Products Private Limited (“Global CP”) is set up as a FMCG platform to create brands that captures favorable macroeconomic factor’s manifested through higher urban consumption.

Global CP was born out of an idea to be one-of-a-kind start-up where entrepreneurial ambitions of the various stakeholders could be nurtured and given a platform to shine. It was with this deep rooted desire that in early 2014, A. Mahendran our CMD & Co-Founder roped in two visionary PE funds (Goldman Sachs & Mitsui Ventures) to partner with him on making dream a reality, He sees GS & MV not as financial investors but as mentors to the management team and catalysts for growth using their vast networks to bring in the right partnership opportunities for Global CP.

We see ourselves as an eclectic mix of the three E’s - Experience, Exuberance & Entrepreneurialism. Throw in a dash of the right amount of capital and what we have is the perfect recipe for success. We firmly believe in our company moniker of being a ‘Synthetic start-up’ given by our Chairman which brings together the entrepreneurial zeal of our stakeholders (we believe that every employee is a stakeholder in our company) along with the global strategic, financial & technological expertise which are brought in by our investors. Global CP is launching innovative and high quality products to start with in high-growth categories such as Confectioneries, Beverages, Household Insecticides and Ayurvedic Personal Care.
