Meticulously grown over the last six decades, today SKS is synonymous with superb taste, high quality and very good value food products. Having mastered the traditional art of sweet making, SKS has developed a new concept for bringing the divine SKS taste to the consumer. SKS is consistently striving for innovations without losing traditional values.

The SKS is having a family of dedicated employees, with a sense of harmony and oneness with the organization, enjoying camaraderie in the employer-employee relations.

Mr. Mahadeva Murali began his career at Sri Krishna Sweets as a young entrepreneur by joining the predictable path of the family business and championed the development of this organization by extending its branches to varied pockets of Chennai city & Pondicherry. Today the network has spread over 26 outlets. A state- of-the - art central kitchen has been set up at Nemam, in the city suburbs with all modern facilities.

Mr. Murali spearheads the project following religiously the principles laid down by his father late Sri.N.K.Mahadeva Iyer, founder of Sri Krishna Sweets. Sri N.K. Mahadeva Iyer enviably built the Mysurpa as a very popular and powerful brand, a flagship product and the single monumental contribution to the food processing industry.

This organisation has made its mark in the minds of the people since 1948 due to quality of its products, wide range of sweets and savouries and with a value addition of being prepared with utmost care and love, served with lavish doses of love. Mr. Murali has a mindset to share a part of his income generated through business with the public and hence conceptualised a unique social responsibility program under the banner Chennai-365. Programs in the area of art, Culture, Education, Health, Environment etc are being organised all the year around in various parts of Chennai. This novel concept of Mr. Murali is to motivate the public in doing a good deed every day. Last year 250 socially significant and responsible programs were organised in the city, which was widely acclaimed by the public.
