Global Green Company was originally set up in 1992 as a joint venture between India’s Thapar group and a European partner. In 1996, the Thapar Group – in a demonstration of its vision and commitment to the potential of Indian agriculture – acquired 100% stake in the entity.
Since its inception, Global Green Company has been a pioneer and leader of the pickled cucumber business out of India. While a growing customer base and superior manufacturing facilities have contributed to the company’s steady and consistent growth, strategic acquisitions have also played an important role in this process. Key milestones in our journey are as follows.
Acquisition of VST Natural Products Ltd. – the foods division of Hyderabad based British American Tobacco associate – VST Industries. This established Global Green Company as the undisputed leader of the pickled cucumber business from India.
Acquisition of Belgium based Intergarden N.V. and the complete Intergarden Group of Companies – including operations in Hungary, India and Intergarden’s stake in Floragarden, a Turkish based joint venture for caper production. With the combined strengths, Global Green Company has become a truly global organization, and a world leader in the condiments category.
Acquisition of Puszta Konzerv Kft, based in Balmazujvaros, near Debrecen in Eastern Hungary. Puszta Konzerv manufactures sweet corn, peas, gherkins, mixed pickles, lecsó and tomatoes. Puszta’s products are a strategic fit with Global Green Company’s portfolio and strong customer base, especially in Central and Eastern Europe as well as the Baltics. This acquisition opened up new and significant opportunities for our business.
