About us

Our story

Janta Wafers was founded in 1954 by late Dhirubhai Khakhar with a single intent, “To make the best potato chips possible.”

Based out of Malad in Mumbai, we still stand strongly by this commitment 60 years later – striving to charm the taste buds of millions in India and abroad.

Currently, under the capable hands of Mr. Jitendra Khakhar, Janta Wafers has expanded to not only make potato wafers but also banana chips, farali chevdo, sev, chana dal, moong dal, singh bhujiya, nadiyadi mix and various other namkeen products under the brand name “Nutkhat Namkeen”.

Janta Wafers is not just another potato wafers manufacturer; it is a business with strong, deep rooted traditional and ethical values. We have 60 years of industry experience and customer satisfaction backing the name, the recent revamping of our infrastructure and machinery only serves to bolster our already monumental growth.

A multitude of virtues, Janta Wafers will cater to you both your stomach and heart.
