During their in reign India, the Dutch established in Surat a warehouse on Dutch Road, in which five Parsee gentlemen were employed to make loaves of bread.
When the Dutch left India at the end of their rule they handed over their ovens to one of our ancestors Mr Faramji Pestonji Dotivala. Faramji continued to supply pieces of bread to the remaining colonials.
They are the pioneers of this industry and have survived over two centuries and six generations due to emphasis on high production standards and excellent quality and long term straightforward dealings.
