top bakery companies in india


Britannia Industries Ltd., Parle Products Pvt. Ltd., Surya Food & Agro Ltd., and ITC Limited, among others, are the major players in the Indian bakery market.


The Indian bakery market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% between 2022 and 2027. As per the analysis of Expert Market Research, the market is driven by the growing manufacturing and sales of biscuits.


The growth of the Indian bakery market can be associated with the extensive manufacturing of popular bakery products such as biscuits in the country. The surging penetration of cafes and bakery chains in tier-II and tier-III cities in India is also driving sales of bakery products. Furthermore, various artisanal bakers are increasingly marketing their products through social media. The growing attempt to support small businesses, especially by the young population, is further fuelling the demand for bakery products from artisanal bakeries.


The shift to healthy lifestyles among consumers, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic, is expected to propel the demand for guilt-free bakery products containing functional ingredients and low amounts of fats and sugar. With consumers increasingly focusing on comfort, the demand for bakery products such as cakes is likely to significantly grow. Furthermore, flavour and texture innovations in the market are anticipated to boost the development of new and innovative bakery products in India.


In November 2020, ITC’s Sunfeast announced the launch of Sunfeast Caker, its new sub-brand. The brand features three formats, a triple-layered cake with a chocolate bottom, the Trinity; a layer cake in two flavours, namely, butterscotch and chocolate; and a reimagined chocolate Swiss roll. Through the brand, the company aimed to offer innovative products and premium experiences to consumers cost-effectively.
