Quenching thirsts since 1865, Mumbai's Pallonji's Soda is pure nostalgia in a bottle!
Bright red, sugary and fizzy to the core, Pallonji's iconic raspberry soda is pure nostalgia in a bottle, for many Mumbaikars. It's more than just a beverage; it's a cherished tradition, a thread that weaves through the rich tapestry of Parsi culture in the bustling city of Mumbai.
Founded in 1865, Pallonji's Soda was available to the Indians before many global beverage giants entered the Indian market. The brand Pallonji's was later acquired by Popular Beverages & Foods Pvt. Ltd., owned by PV Solanki. Solanki took this local gem beyond the boundaries of Mumbai, expanding its reach to Delhi, and Bengaluru while also making its mark in London.
A favourite among many Mumbaikars!
Pallonji's Soda, celebrated for its popularity, is readily available at local shops and notably in Irani cafes across Mumbai. Despite the decline in the number of Irani Cafes in the city, Pallonji's Soda remains a proud feature on most cafe menus.
In addition to its beloved raspberry flavour, Pallonji's Soda has expanded its offerings. The range includes the piquant kick of ginger soda, the timeless cola fizz, flat soda, and the refreshing zest of lime soda.
While global brands continue to dominate the market, Pallonji's has managed to carve a niche for itself by staying true to its roots. With each sip, Mumbaikars are transported to a time when life was simpler, Irani cafes were abundant, and Pallonji's Raspberry Soda was not just a drink but a memory in the making!
