About us

"Best Chiwda" is "Sitashree Laxminarayan Chiwda"

“Best Chiwda” is “Sitashree Laxminarayan Chiwda”!! That’s the love & popularity we have earned in last 76 years. With the changing & ever expanding business structure, our name is changed a bit; earlier we were “Laxminarayan Chiwda” and are now “LaxmiNarayan Best Chiwda”; however, this change is only limited to our name. Neither we have changed, nor our taste!! ना हम बदले, ना स्वाद बदला. We still deliver the same authentic , delightful BEST Chiwda!!


When asked, “what makes a great brand?”, everyone tends to describe the output of the brand i.e. the experience that a consumer has when it comes to product, price, promotion and place. Everyone talks about the end result, and not what it takes to “make a brand great”.

In case of (erstwhile) Laxminaryan Chiwda (Now, Sitashree Laxminaryan Chiwda), it was sheer penchant of chiwda-making that laid the foundation of the brand in Pune, when Mr. Laxminarayan Data, founder of the massive enterprise, had begun the journey by selling the taste of Maharashtra on the streets with a handcart. When this started in 1935, little did anyone imagined that the humble mixture of flattened rice flakes, peanuts and spices would be identified as the taste of Pune. Being a man of principles, among the first things Mr. Laxminarayan Data did was to get a license for the hawker’s business and subsequently to register the LaxmiNarayan Chiwda trademark. Today, four generations later, great passion for making chiwda, exhibiting a wide range of flavors and providing best quality to customers, thus, Laxminarayan chiwda is now known as ‘the taste of Pune.’ Recently, we have been diversified into range of Savouries, Sweets & Chaat items and have rebranded ourselves as Sitashree Laxminaryan Chiwda.
After the sad demise of Laxminarayan Ji Data, Mr. Babulal Ji Data took over the company, catalyzing our growth and building an empire out of it. The same mixture of flattened rice, exotic dry fruits, the generous pinch of asafetida and aromatic spices, is now produced in 5 different varieties. A wide range of exotic dry fruits is also now an integral part of the overall output. We are also slowly expanding our product portfolio to stay relevant to a younger generation. Recently newer varieties such as Badam Chiwda, Lite Chiwda, Farsan & Patal Poha Chiwda have been introduced.
Now we are not only limited to Pune City or the state of Maharashtra, but you can get our products anywhere in India and in 18 countries in the world. Also, 90% of the retail stores and the big supermarket chains in the city like D-mart, Big Bazar, Reliance Fresh, Dorabjee’s, Star Bazaar etc host our wide range of products proudly.
