Leadership

RRahul Topiwala
Founder, Director & CEO

Rrahul is the founder and visionary behind Farmous Foods. His time spent in the US as a college student, taught him a great deal about the differences between India and the West, when it came to eating. He realised, that for all the talk of India's culinary diversity, Indian food is tremendously under-represented globally, in terms of variety and accessibility. This desire to showcase Indian food in all its glory, led him to create Bhuna Pisa™. Furthermore, he saw that nutritional awareness is very low in India, and that local brands needed to reach out to the general public in a language that was widely understood. This was the inspiration behind Vundaa™, a fun brand, that gave people their daily dose of protein, a core ingredient that the aam aadmi could easily relate to. When Rrahul is not strategizing about the next innovative food concept, he can be found writing, travelling, cooking or performing stand-up comedy.

Hiitesh Topiiwaalla
Founder & Director

Hiitesh is a serial entrepreneur, currently associated with diverse industries and firms. He is the Managing Director of Paramount Cosmetics India Ltd., Co-Founder of Impres Health, Co-Founder & Director of I Shield and Director at Farmous Foods.

He has been responsible for strategic direction and key transformations, sometimes influencing the industry overall. He is also passionate about mentoring budding entrepreneurs and has been able to give shape to his passion through his association with the many other firms that he is a part of. Hiitesh can be found amidst nature, traveling to the mountains, and interacting with locals, or reading and playing golf, when he is not strategizing about the next business move.
