In the year 1982, Mr. Kurian Jose Sr. began manufacturing food grade Agar Agar (china grass) for the local market. As a result of the constant focus on R&D, Bacteriological, Pharmaceutical and Plant Tissue Culture grade Agar Agar was introduced in the year 1989. Currently, the company has a production capacity over 350 M.T per annum. Marine Hydrocolloids has since then introduced several other products like Wonder Gel, Plant gel, Agarose, etc. The company also began exports to several countries.
