Nostalgia and Heritage: Exploring Pre-Independence Indian Brands That Shaped History

The Pre Independence Indian Brand saw the rise of several iconic brands that not only survived the changing tides of history but also played a pivotal role in the socio-economic landscape of the country. These brands offer a fascinating glimpse into India’s past and continue to be cherished today. Let’s delve into the stories of these historic brands that have their roots in pre-independence India.
1. Godrej
Founded in 1897 by Ardeshir Godrej, the Godrej Group started with the manufacture of locks and then diversified into other sectors over the decades. It was a significant move considering the socio-political context of the time, emphasizing self-reliance and supporting the Swadeshi movement, which advocated for the use of Indian-made products during the British rule.
2. Tata Group
Established by Jamsetji Tata in the late 19th century, the Tata Group has been a symbol of Indian entrepreneurship and innovation for more than a century. The launch of Tata Steel in 1907 was particularly notable, as it made India one of the few countries in Asia to have its own steel plant, fostering industrialization in the country.
3. Rooh Afza
This refreshing rose-scented syrup, created by Hakim Hafiz Abdul Majeed in 1907, and manufactured by Hamdard Laboratories, became a popular drink in India long before the country gained independence. Rooh Afza continues to be a summer staple in many Indian households, celebrated for its unique taste and cooling properties.
