Avin Agarwal

The Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector has loads of cutthroat competition in India, and Haldiram’s is one of the most popular names. Today, Haldiram’s has grown into a brand that specialises in snacks and sweets. Avin Agarwal, the Director of Haldiram’s, is the current generation spearheading this brand transformation.

A Legacy of Excellence
Haldiram’s is an Indian company that was established in 1937 by an individual named Ganga Bishan Agarwal, who is popularly known as Haldiram Ji. Over the years, the brand has evolved from a single-store business in Bikaner, Rajasthan, to an FMCG giant of global repute. This incredible journey is characterised by a desire to deliver the best, original, and customer-centric products and services.

Avin Agarwal of Haldiram’s is the great-grandson of Haldiram Ji, and when he joined this business. Having learned from his grandfather, Avin had to ensure that he was able to pay tribute to the heritage of the brand and, at the same time, bring it to the next level.

A Path of Lifelong Learning
Since the beginning of his professional path, Avin Agarwal has always been keen on the ongoing process of learning. He began learning the nuts and bolts of Haldiram’s, getting on-the-job training of sorts in almost all spheres of the company. Whether it was understanding production processes, effectively managing supplies, or making top-level business decisions, Avin was integrated into everything he did.

The deep level of engagement fostered a culture of improvement and allowed Avin to gain insights into the business of the company. He realised the importance of change, innovation, and the management of change right from the beginning as a way of achieving sustained success. This became the philosophy that he brought into the leadership of the Haldiram’s and charted it towards newer heights.

Uplifting the Team
Core to Avin Agarwal’s ambition for Haldiram’s is the concept that leadership is about the elevation of the people one leads. He believes that the power of the organisation lies with the people working for it. This principle of collective growth has not only made Haldiram’s operation efficient but has also helped in building a culture of dedication and hard work among them.

Corporate Social Responsibility
Avin Agarwal is passionate about CSR and business sustainability and believes it is a vital approach to boosting business performance. He also feels that, as one of the foremost FMCG brands in India, Haldiram has to create a positive social and environmental impact. The company has embarked on various measures to promote environmental conservation and enhance community welfare.

The Future of Haldiram’s
As Avin Agarwal continues to lead Haldiram’s into the future, his vision is clear, to continue the development of a brand heritage while at the same time becoming more innovative. He has a vision of Haldiram’s as one of the leading FMCG companies with an international reputation for its products and management standards.

Avin has identified the key areas for Haldiram, such as product portfolio diversification to meet consumers’ demands, the integration of technology to improve consumers’ experiences, and the broadening of its geographical presence.

Starting from his humble beginnings, where Avin learned the basics from his grandfather, to the time that he led the brand towards new heights, one can truly say that leadership is not only about learning every day but also inspiring the people around you and envisioning a brighter tomorrow.

It is due to his foresight that Haldiram’s continues to maintain its brand name and grow into a progressive company. Haldiram’s, with Avin Agarwal at the helm of affairs, is not just a brand name but signifies tradition, creativity, and a dynamic future.
