The story of Nimbus is filled with diligent passion and endless effort resulting in an outcome that encompasses it all…
The journey began in 1998 as Nimbus Holdings, which imported confectionary products from India and distributed all over Nepal’s retail and wholesale market. With time, it gradually shifted to import with the distribution of soya cakes and maize. This move towards the agribusiness sector eventually led the company towards animal health and nutrition.
During that period, there was limited skilled manpower; not many possessed the required knowledge of animal nutrition and health. Therefore, the company imported animal vitamins, vaccines, and medicines from the US and France-based MNCs such as Elanco(USA), Adisseo (France), Alltech (USA,) Merial (France).
The experience and association with international companies paved the way for the company to garner extensive knowledge of animal health and nutrition. Soon Nimbus initiated its own plant that produced animal feed supplements.
In 2004, Probiotech Industries, the first pellet feed manufacturing unit in Nepal was established. This was a turning point for Nimbus. The company’s animal feed brand ‘Shakti’ gradually started to take over the country’s market. Soon it became the largest selling animal feed brand in Nepal with tremendous market share.
Eventually, the company started making its footprint into the FMCG/Grocery space. Probiotech began manufacturing products such as edible oil, flour, lentils, nuggets, and pickles under the brands Byanjan and Sunaulo Kiran; both the brands are flourishing and booming their position in the FMGC market.
