“MAHENDRA KUMAR KANIYALAL SHAH” was established as a retail outlet in 1941 in Palanpur, Gujarat. It was a typical Kirana / grocery retail store in a super busy market in the heart of Palanpur, Gujarat.

The shop was started with an objective to cater to the population across the city. It was a grocery and provision store that provided food grain (rice, wheat, pulses, spices, and whole spices) and other FMCG products like Dry Fruits, Tinned Food etc. for routine household consumption.

Over the years, along with the growth of our retail business, “Mk Food Lion Pvt. Ltd.” was born with the vision to expand the trade and we underwent a transformation from retailer to wholesaler & distributor, catering to the needs of the other grocers, shops, retail outlets, Hotels, Corporates, educational institutions etc. The shift from retail-based model to wholesale/distributor occurred very naturally due to the volume of the business leading to better overall revenue and profit.
