Interview with Mr. Ramesh Mutha, Managing Director, Mohan Mutha Group of Companies

Mohan Mutha exports Pvt. Ltd has evolved as geographically diverse organization with operations and development beyond the Indian Border. How has the company’ venture into Maldivian Market been so far?

In 1986, Mohan Mutha Exports embarked on a venture in the Maldives, initiating their business with the first shipment of textiles, food, and building materials. At the time, the market lacked direct shipments from India and was limited to accepting goods only from European countries, the Far East, Japan, Singapore, and Malaysia. Myanmar was the primary source of rice imports, while sugar and wheat flour came from Europe. India’s exports were confined to small wooden boats, carrying basic vegetables, spices, and textiles.

Despite the challenges, we recognized immense opportunities in this untapped market. The year 1986 offered no internet, computers, or mobile devices, and marketing tools were limited to brochures, samples, and face-to-face meetings with customers. Thus, I frequently traveled, carrying a diverse range of products, including foods, textiles, building materials, electricals, hand tools, and appliances like fans, fridges, and televisions. Through dedication and hard work, we achieved success in establishing our presence and thriving in this demanding market.
