Snacks with a difference – Thank U Foods
Thank U Foods is a livelihood initiative by the differently-abled people to provide delicious packed Snacks – Cookies, Chocolates, Cakes, Sweets & Savouries.
Snacks are a part of our lives, more than we perceive them to be – we snack when we are hungry, when we are bored, when we watch a movie or when we meet friends/family. Most of the fond memories are related to food. This pandemic, the one thing we hoarded on are also snacks – chips, peanut bars, sweets for the sweet tooth, Indian muruku/snacks and so on. What if all the joy of eating comes with an added responsibility towards the society we live in! What if we can contribute towards a differently-abled person every time we purchase a snack!
Food in Chennai is an emotion. While there are multiple outlets serving snacks and retail outlets selling packaged snacks, one outlet stood out and that is Thank U foods. Thank U foods was started by the Indian Association for the Blind and has so far changed the lives of more than 30000 blind people across India.
With a goal to help the visually challenged people become delf-reliant, S.M.A. Jinnah, the founder of the Indian Association for the Blind, started this venture 35 years ago. Quality being their USP, they source their ingredients from local suppliers for the freshness. Each snack is handmade from scratch using the best ingredients and following the cleanliness protocol. Each staff member washes and sanitizes their hands as they enter the kitchen and ensure your product is 100% safe to be consumed. Cookies, chocolates, sweets, muruku, ribbon muruku, cakes – all of these are made on a daily basis, checked, and packaged to be sent out.
Starting as a small single kiosk, selling cookies, Thank U foods is now a 500+ kiosk company spread all over India and providing employment opportunities to thousands of differently abled people. Their clients include corporates and they have a customer base of more than a lakh all across the world. As common people, we can also contribute to this cause by purchasing for our personal needs, gifting, donating their products to orphanages or even by contributing to the right organization. Thank U foods also take up gift orders for festivals, weddings or a party and offer personalized options, making them the right choice for your gifting purposes.
Growth over time:
What started as a small single street-side kiosk and the simple idea of making and selling cookies by Blind youth has grown into a pan India Brand delivering high-quality healthier and tasty snacks. Today their products are tasted and shared by more than 100000+ delighted customers across the world. Thier differently-abled youths manage kiosks at 500+ top corporates across the country.
