What is MOPP Foods?

But what if you want to have some delicious Paratha and Pakoda on your doorstep? That’s where Mopp Foods comes in place.

Who is the Founder of MOPP Foods?

Gaurav Gupta & Geetika Anand Gupta are the founders of MOPP Foods. It’s basically a Paratha & Pakoda brand. You’ve seen popular brands growing based on burgers, pizza, and lasagna.

But Paratha & Pakoda-based brand? That’s got to be the first of something like this.

MOPP Foods Before Shark Tank India?

They’ve spent 14 years in Dubai. After coming to India they wanted to try authentic desi paratha. But Geetika couldn’t find any trusted brands that are mainly dealing with paratha. That’s when the idea clicked in her mind and she wanted to make her very own company to serve authentic paratha.

The sharks thought the MOPP brand could sound conflicting with the word Mop. Mop sounds like the cleaning process and it doesn’t sound good while associated with a food brand. However, the founders were flexible with this name. If required, they can change the name in the future.
