He used to tell me that the bakery should be known for at least one thing, and that idea stuck with me. In the late 1990s, I began experimenting and developed a novel method of making Osmania biscuits. We got a favorable response from the market. "
Mr. Irfan says that the bakery has been able to carve a niche for itself in a cluttered market like Hyderabad. According to him, that*s because the family had a passion for the art of baking and is always ready to introduce new varieties or improvise on existing ones.
