While his family had an electronic business, Manish knew he wanted to take Indian taste to the world with his brand. Through ecommerce exports, he could achieve this in a seamless manner. “Starting from a 200 sq. ft office space to a 200% profitable spices export business in the UK and Japan, Amazon Global Selling has helped me achieve my dreams,” he adds.
