Dharmpal was born on 27th March 1923 in Sialkot (Pakistan). A school dropout, who moved to India after the Partition, he had opened his first store in Delhi's Karol Bagh.
Despite the humble beginnings, according to the company's website, MDH spices are not just popular in India but are also exported to the United States of America, Canada, United Kingdom, Europe, South East Asia, Japan, U.A.E. and Saudi Arabia. The company has its own offices in London (U.K.) and a state of art manufacturing unit at Sharjah (U.A.E.).—with PTI
