About Drums Food International :

At Drums, we love food and we are always finding ways to unleash the best out of food. We started with Ice cream, where we unleashed flavours and textures with our Brand Hokey Pokey. We loved it. (We thought it was the best ice cream in the world!)

We then launched Epigamia Greek Yogurt (we call this Batman, call us to know why), where we strained Dahi to get higher protein and then infused it with real fruits to stimulate taste buds. Ever since then, we have been pushing the boundaries of what is possible and contemporising traditional Dairy. From Protein smoothies, Lactose free curd and Mishti Doi, Ghee spreads to our latest offering of plant-based yogurt made with coconuts, we have been launching products that are tastier and better for you.

At Drums, innovation is our playground and we make things happen. Our products are delivered through state of-the-art manufacturing processes, innovative packaging and are available across retail and institutional sales channels. Within 3 years of launch, Epigamia is present in 12000+ touch points across 20 cities Pan-India, in major retail chains and outlets, online e- commerce platforms and other alternate channels. And we are only just getting started.
