A journey that started 40 years ago


Candor Foods is a third generation company. With over 40years of experience in dry-fruit imports, we pride ourselves on having an unmatched experience & expertise in processing, packaging & manufacturing dry-fruits, dates & nuts. Handful of Health is a registered brand of Candor Foods Pvt Ltd. At Candor, Handful of Health is our endeavour is to make health foods accessible, available and affordable across all sections of society. At Handful of Health, we believe in the age old dictum ‘Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food’ – Greek Physician Hippocrates. The benefits of eating a handful of dry fruits and nuts everyday are many. You can choose from a range of dry fruits, dates, nuts, energy bars and munchies to improve your lifestyle. Through Handful of Health, we aim to deliver quality products to our customers and hold their hand in their journey to a healthier life.

The ecommerce store www.handfulofhealth.in was launched in June 2020. The COVID lockdown of April 2020, saw us getting a lot of enquiries through our team members and employees about if we were open to delivering nuts and dryfruits to people’s homes. Thanks to the efforts of our entire team , we were able to service the orders , which was no less than a feat since this was at the peak of the COVID crisis. This gave us the confidence to start our very first ecommerce store. We are proud to have serviced over 3500 orders till date.

In October of 2020 , we decided to leverage our learnings from the ecommerce business and foray into retail. This is when we launched the Candor retail Out- reach program. Through this programme , we have been able to connect with like minded people who share our interest and vision of creating healthier communities through healthy foods. We are proud to have opened three stores in Mumbai in the last six months. The first one opened at Borivali in October and the second and third at Nepeansea Road and Ghatkopar just this week on April 22, 2021.

The concept of a Handful Of Health store is to become a one stop shop for customers for healthy eating and healthy gifting. We wish to offer our patrons the largest variety in nuts, dry fruits, dates, seeds, snacks and food for active living in the widest range of packaging at reasonable prices. What has clicked for our stores so far? Well it is the concept of packaging. We offer a variety of pack sizes in a wide array of customised hampers designed to suit the occasion from traditional jute potlis to trendy eco friendly jhola bags to leather boxes, we have covered them all. So the next time you are looking for gifting it out in style, look no further.
