Balaram Mullick & Radharaman Mullick, the legendary sweet makers from Kolkata have been practising their craft since 1885, mastering the art of both traditional and contemporary treats. The rich heritage and authentic flavours have made the brand a household name. After 137 years, the fourth-generation entrepreneur Sudip Mullick is aiming to take the brand international and make it synonymous with the City of Joy.

The history of this brand dates back to the time when Ganesh Chandra Mullick arrived in Kolkata from Konnagar, West Bengal in 1880. He came to the city in search of work, and spent several years working in a small sweet shop, learning the intricacies of making sweets. Ganesh spent months researching the idea of opening his own shop. In 1885, they finally opened their first store in Bhowanipore, one of the busiest locations of that time.

“The opening of every new outlet has marked a significant milestone for us, but the Lake Garden store holds a special significance. Moreover, the transformation of our entire Bhawanipore outlet into a Balaram House, accomplished over the past two years, stands as a major achievement for us,” says Sudip Mullick, Director, Balaram Mullick & Radharaman Mullick
