Prima Group of Companies, a Cochin based Industrial Group, established in 1965, comprising units engaged in different agro based industrial activities. The business entities in the Prima group were promoted by the family of Mr. Sajjan Kumar Gupta, who migrated to Cochin around 60 years back from Rajasthan. A born entrepreneur, Mr. S.K. Gupta, whose family was in the business of Flour Mills, developed his business skills over a period of time. In 60s and 70s, S.K. Gupta family members had flour mills, practically, all over India. They were also actively engaged in trading of commodities and downstream products. Mutually agreed family partitions helped the individual brothers to develop their own family groups.
Mr. S.K. Gupta, after settling down in Kerala, decided to move away from the flour mills and set up other manufacturing facilities using agro based products, as starting materials. The diversified agro based raw materials available in Kerala and neighbouring states helped him in this venture. Mr. S.K. Gupta was able to establish his business in Kerala with the help of expert professionals and dedicated staff and work force.
