Before AAB zeroes in on any ingredient, it has to go through very strict, professional and scientific Research and Development (R&D) processes. The finest ingredients are a must. In fact, they are the foundation of AAB’s promise.
“We are prepared to go that extra mile to fulfil our pledge,” says K. T. Srinivasa Raja, who, along with his brother, K. T. Venkatesan has grown the business into what it is today.
Challenges have only made the brothers seek solutions. Like the time when they saw the quality of milk and milk products they were outsourcing was being compromised and this was affecting the final output of sweets. The brothers took a decision to do away with inferior stuff and become self-reliant. So, AAB put in place where their company owned dairy which helped in cutting out the stress of depending on erratic supply and quality from outside sources.
Today, from AAB’s dairy, the best milk, cream, curds, cottage cheese and ghee are used to make their sweets. Soon they are planning to launch A2B Ghee, A2B Curd to provide its customers the genuine quality and taste of Ghee & Curd.
Skill & Technology – Production & Quality Mantra
Whether its people or machine, AAB always goes for the best in the business. You will notice AAB’s sweets are uniformly textured and sweetened to perfection. This uniformity comes from the state of the art manufacturing facility which deploys the best of the equipment to bring in best hygiene, quality & taste in a completely controlled environment. Its worth mentioning the clean room technology being set to make the finest of the sweets in the most clean & hygienic environment with every production person going through a sanitization chamber.
All AAB sweets are produced and packaged in temperatures that are suitable to bring out the best in that particular sweet.
To ensure their quality is not compromised , the Quality control team conducts random tasting every single day to keep in check with their quality. Noticing the need for baked confectionery and ice creams, AAB set up their centralised state-of-the-art bakery and frozen dessert units. These centralised units supply all the AAB outlets on a daily basis using temperature controlled delivery vehicles.


Started 4 years ago, with a clear vision to give the customers the best quality and taste in packed Snacks, Sweets, Rice paste, Masala powder & Mixes at affordable prices. Their products are available in more 70,000 stores in Tamilnadu and 30,000 stores in Karnataka, Andhra & Kerala put together with a recent launch in Mumbai retail market.

Health leads to happiness is another brand from the house of AAB. With this particular thought, AAB decided to create sweet delicacies made using the most healthy millets ingredients. Instead of processed white sugar, the chefs use healthy, natural sweeteners like jaggery, palm sugar or honey. Millets substitute gluten rich and carb loaded grains, making the sweets as healthy as they can possibly get. This offers AAB customers options that could keep them fit and their taste buds happy, while taking care of all age groups and their dietary needs. In fact, some of Chennai’s Adyar Ananda Bhavan outlets serve millet snacks in the evening


  • Every member on the AAB team has made an uncompromising pledge to quality and customer satisfaction. And that promise reflects in their sweets, bringing out the best taste in every bite.
  • Happiness leads to good health, which in turn enhances the celebrations of festivals and life. These two commitments were the driving force behind AAB’s team of chefs and quality controllers who started working.
