About our founder
Mr. Devendra Shah (Founder & Chairman)
Mr. Devendra Shah is presently the Chairman of Parag Milk Foods Ltd, India's largest private dairy with a portfolio of popular brands - Gowardhan, Go, Pride of Cows, and Avvatar. He also promotes India's largest cow farm called Bhagyalaxmi Dairy Farm and aims to provide the best cattle herd to Indian farmers.
Devendra Shah was born on September 21, 1964, in Pune. He received a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Pune University. After graduating in commerce, Mr. Shah dabbled in other businesses like clothes retailing, but it was not until 1989 that he found his true calling—the dairy business. Parag Milk Foods is the brainchild of Mr. Shah.
The big break for Shah came in 1991 when Finance Minister Manmohan Singh, in his budget speech, announced de-licensing that included the dairy sector as well. This paved the way for private players to procure milk from farmers. Shah launched Parag Milk Foods in 1992, and being a capital-intensive business, he invested Rs 1 crore. The money was raised from a combination of accruals from Shah's earlier ventures and borrowings from a local cooperative bank.
He is actively involved in agricultural activities and the elevation of the farming community. For his good work, the Maharashtra Government has honoured him with the Maharashtra Udyog Bhushan Award. Along with being a fitness enthusiast, he loves to travel the world and explore new opportunities.
