HISTORY - A young Joykumar presenting his products at an Expo at Pragati maidan, New Delhi.Thangjam Agro Industries Pvt. Ltd. was founded by Thangjam Joykumar Singh in 1991 at Imphal. It was founded as a proprietorship unit. In 1983, after completing his education, Mr. Joykumar returned home to start his own venture. He was inspired by the scope and potential of the abundant natural resources available in the state and in 1991 started Thangjam Agro Industries with a term loan from Manipur Industrial Development Co-Operation (MANIDCO) and Imphal Urban Co-Operative Bank. He started manufacturing a range of squashes under his flagship brand “Likla”.

During the initial stages, he struggled with immense marketing and logistical problems. However despite all the challenges he faced, he built the company from strength to strength, year on year. In 2010, he steered the Company through a massive Expansion Project. New range of foods and beverages were added to the profile. This project was financed by Bank of Baroda, Imphal with Venture Capital Assistance from Small Farmers Agri-Business Consortium, New Delhi. This Project increased the Company’s production capacity to 1000 MT from 200 MT per annum. In October 2011, Mr. Joykumar added yet another Division to his company and launched his range of Packaged Drinking Water under his original flagship brand “Likla”. In December 2012, construction work began on a second Plant at Food Plant, Nilakuthi, Imphal. The Bottle Blowing Unit of this new Plant was commissioned in November 2013. The Packaged Drinking Water Unit was commissioned in December 2014
