Founder & Director

Kirti Patel started Kirtiraj in 1983 to expand his family business of selling papads. The story of Kirtiraj starts well before that time. His mother started the business, selling papad from their factory. Seeing her struggle, Mr. Patel decided to create an innovative solution to expand the business. He designed and produced India’s first successful automatic papad making machine. Fast forwarding to 2018, he has now grown the company to international levels with over 50 different product varieties. He operates 2 corporate franchises and supports 6 other franchise owners. 
Mr. Patel lives authentically and transparently, setting achievable and measurable goals for his team, and championing his people and brand. Taking the hardest tasks for himself, coming in early, staying late, and leading by example - these aren't just catch phrases at Kirtiraj, this is how he makes it happen.
