Finest sandesh in Kolkata
Since the middle of the 20th century, Nakur’s sandesh has occupied the pride of place in all-India level. Nakur’s chocolate, parijat and mousumi sandesh had their luminous presence on the wedding reception of Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai. West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee gifted one hundred pieces of kanchagolla and an equal number of parijat sandesh to the US Foreign Secretary, Hillary Clinton. Of momentous occasion was the sandhek weighing 34kg which was the cynosure to felicitate the Kolkata Knight Riders in presence of the Governor and the Chief Minister. Prime Minister, Narendra Modi have a sweet tooth for our sandesh. Nakur’s brand wallows in the glory of grest personalities of India, namely Satyajit Ray, matinee idol Uttam Kumar and former Prime Minister Rajib Gandhi. Satyajit’s daughter-in-law was a regular customer. Rajib Gandhi had a sweet tooth for golapi pera. We feel proud to have delivered sandesh on the occasion of Lakshmi Puja to Uttam Kumar’s residence at Moyra Street.
Nakur Chandra Nandy hailed from Janai in Hoogly district and came to Calcutta as son-in-law of renowned confectioner of Simla, Girish Chandra Dey. A joint venture started by the father-in-law and the son-in-law has grown from strength to strength over the decades.
Located at 56, Ramdulal Sarkar Street and surrounded by heritage sites that include Bethune College, Hedua and birth place of Swami Vivekananda, ours is a permanent address for sweets aficionado. The building that houses the outlet enjoys Heritage status. We don’t buy any product as ingredient for our sandesh. We buy them raw and the processing is done by our system in place. None of our products remain unsold at the end of a day and make way for the fresh products. Sandesh of naram-pak remains intact for one to three days, while those of kara-pak enjoy a span of a week even. The five generation business is certainly not for its own sake. Our top most priority is our customers, local and beyond. We push our quest for perfection to the limits and beyond and we render our best efforts to upgrade our standards with every passing day. As many as sixty items of sandesh are available, nevertheless, our core competence lies in talsash, jalbhara, parijat, dilkhush, monohara, blackforesh and other varities. Of three proprietors, Prasanta Nandy passed away. Pratip Nandy and Pranab Nandy are at the helm of the present management.
