When independence knocked on the door of this nation, economic consolidation became its need of the hour. This was all the more necessary to tackle the responsibility of the new-found independence. Old British owned businesses were changing hands. Indigenous companies were well on their way to become pillars of an emerging economic stalwart called India. A budding name in that group of indigenous growing companies that was soon to be legend was Pataka Group.
Sowing the business philosophy is credited to Mr. Giasuddin Biswas who laid the foundation stones of Pataka Group in 1949. He was born and brought up in a remote village called Chandra in the backward district of Murshidabad. He witnessed the poverty stricken people at his village and experienced the pains of his fellow men as his very own. No wonder, when he entered the business-world, alleviating pangs of social anguish and taking its members on a development curve with his own company topped his agenda.
The journey still continues. His son and current Chairman of Pataka, Mr. Mustak Hossain made the business grow exponentially. Bringing phenomenal changes to the business, under his leadership the order of business and society was redefined. Till date he remains chastely true to what the patriarch of their family had to impart to them, and his acumen is inspirational to countless endeavors. This vision and philosophy of the group has endeared its journey across the decades. It is the strength, support, backing and friendship of the associated people that drive them forward to do better in their ever-so-successful journey.

Setting alight, a new success story
Standing in 2012, Biri manufacturing counts as the second largest industry in India. Biri making is an agro-forest based cottage industry solely dependent on tendu Leaves and tobacco. Plucking of tendu leaves, their collection and storage engage a large number of families. Numerous others are associated with the cultivation of tobacco. In this manner the industry serves to provide livelihood to millions of people mostly from the lower socioeconomic strata.
With a production capacity of 110 million sticks of biri per day, Pataka is the largest biri manufacturing company in India. It is equipped with 502 biri brands that are among the highest selling brands in the country. It pledges to engage more and more workforce in this growing venture of theirs, so that they can carry forward the ambitions of more than 267,000 families across India.
India is the land of tea gardens, famous world-over for being the producers of the finest quality of this beverage. Pataka has stepped into this industry too with two sole objectives- to raise India’s stature as tea producers to an all new level; and to alleviate the conditions of India’s tea garden workers.
Pataka Tea, a flagship unit of brand Pataka has taken the Indian tea industry by storm since its birth in 2000. A perfect combination of experienced tea-leaf pickers and best processing machinery in its factory make Pataka Tea India’s household favourite. As Pataka Tea makes its footprints felt across the globe the benefits are trickled down towards the betterment and welfare of workers and their families. In this way Pataka strives to do away with the deplorable conditions of tea workers in India today
The endeavours to tread into new avenues have made Pataka Group step into the food and agro-based industry too, starting with Pataka Biscuits. The journey has not been an easy one though. Maintaining a “no-compromise” attitude for hygiene while keeping the quality intact is not a simple task. But being driven by its philosophy of keeping its consumers first, Pataka always makes it a point to responsibly deliver the best possible quality in the pursuit of success. These are the starting steps of a phenomenal business vision. Success is delicious to savour, with the taste of Pataka.
