Christy Group is a diversified group of companies with interests in a wide spectrum of fields ranging from food, water, textiles, paper, packaging solutions, consumer products, and contract manufacturing activities.
Christy Friedgram Industry [CFI], the flagship company of the group was founded in 1989 by Mr T.S.Kumarasamy with a small capital but a big dream of becoming a successful first generation entrepreneur.
On successfully being considered for funding from a nationalized bank, Mr.T.S.Kumarasamy first set out to define his Mission and Vision. The next crucial step was to align his goals with that of the nation in ‘Eradicating malnutrition’ among the nation’s poor. Apart from partnering with the states towards a social cause, this business of manufacturing ready-to-eat cereals and pulses-based supplementary foods would also help him generate employment in the small town called Tiruchengode he grew up in, thus fulfilling a dual objective. So began the journey of a company which started with a small seed capital and has since grown to the size of a company with a consolidated group turnover of Rs. 500 crore as of last fiscal, in a span of two decades. With a team of dedicated and ambitious professionals providing unstinted support, diversification was a natural transition… and what better way to expand than to explore opportunities in retail, textiles, paper, packaging solutions etc. Our conviction grew significantly and so did our infrastructure. We soon believed we could move into private partnership too with our skilled workforce and committed staff. We have demonstrated our capacity to take up contract manufacturing assignments for major FMCG clients and also partner with them in their product development.
