  • Alarmingly, the current snacking industry in India is infused with greasy and salty snacks, which are laden with preservatives and spices, loaded with salt and sugar. Kids are greatly inclined towards consuming these snacks, thereby placing their health at risk. The industry struggles with a dearth of players that deliver wholesome and guilt-free snacks exclusively for kids. Timios is a devoted brand(a brand of FirmRoots Pvt. Ltd.) that provides a range of snacks infused with not just good nutrition, but also flavours, colours, textures and entire package par excellence. The mastermind behind timios is Aswani Chaitanya (Founder & CEO) who is a well-experienced technologist, engineer and a proud father of two boys. With a brand name meaning ‘honest’ in Greek and the tagline ‘Honesty in Every Bite!’, he aims to build a healthy future for children with the brand’s tasty treats loaded with goodness of natural ingredients on the inside and fun on the outside.
