Jamnagar Chicory Industries (JCI) is proud to be a valued supplier of India’s leading FMCG companies since 1985. What began as a small initiative, around 45 years ago, is today an upcoming industry and a leading importer and exporter of chicory in India!


The history of JCI dates back to 1964 when the only player of chicory in Jamnagar, Gujarat was brooke Bond. We made a humble beginning by cultivating our first crop of chicory and trading it. Soon, we entered into a 3 years contract with Polson Ltd (“DEER" brand fame) for roasted chicory powder in 1966. The contract served to be a milestone in the history of our company. From 1966 till 1971, we made sincere and continuous efforts to keep our market share on an upward trend by joining hands with coffee blenders of South India. Our efforts got noticed with Nestle becoming our first prestigious customer in 1971. Later we also bagged orders for Brooke Bond of Hindustan Lever, now Unilever.


We are the pioneers to have adopted the technology of manufacturing roasted chicory cubes for Nestle India from 1985. Since then, there was no looking back. Gradually, we became the top notch supplier and exporter of Roasted Chicory Cubes, Dried Chicory Cubes and Liquid Chicory in India and abroad. We manufacture finest quality of chicory by guiding and imparting knowledge to farmers on better sowing and harvesting techniques which results in better quality and yield year-on-year basis. Our products are used by several companies in producing various food products and dietary supplements.

We also buy and import finest quality of chicory seeds from India and other parts of the world. Companies/groups eager to sell good quality chicory seeds can contact us at our plant located in Jamnagar, the farthest western end of India. Our knowledge of sound harvesting techniques, constant commitment towards quality and sheer dedication has together made JCI a reputed chicory supplier in India and rest of the world.
