The history dates back to Bhalchandra Narayan Pote, who was a clerk in the Bombay High Court. One day, as he was passing through Girgaon, he noticed a machine outside a flour mill. After inquiry, he realized that the device was used for grinding chilies and had been put up for sale as it was pretty old. He returned home and shared an idea with his father and brothers to start the business of spices. Due to their poor financial conditions, he bought the flour machine by taking a loan from a private money lender. In Agust 1942, at own residence he initiated the business of grinding dry chillies & spices on labour basis, and further they developed their own blends which later became popular. It laid the foundation for the company, in the true sense.

In 1954, the first shop of Pote spices started in a rented place at Tapal Naka. Within few years, the same place was purchased. Further, in 1962, the manufacturing unit started at Market Yard. Today, the unit has a staff of 20 people. In 2018, we launched a grand showroom of spices in the Suvarnashilpa building at Tapal Naka. The graph of our business development continues to grow further. Today, we are attempting to reach out to every household through the latest technology, global spice trends, and social media. Even today, many well-known Dhabas, hotels, and famous food joints on Panvel - Goa Highway and Pune highway have been using Pote Masale for several years. The owners insist on using Pote Masale.

Pote brothers have plans to take Pote Masale overseas and are preparing for it. Due to the best quality of raw material, business integrity, effective customer relationship, and reasonable rates, the business has entered its 78th year with the fourth generation handling all the activities. Mr. Kashinath Gurunath Pote, with his sons Mr. Nilesh Pote and Mr. Shailesh Pote, work as business partners. They believe in maintaining not only business commitment but also a social commitment by practicing various activities. Many companies are in the race of making spices available today in the market, but truly Pote Masale, with its secret of presenting a delicious taste to the food, has retained its uniqueness.
