A Science Graduate, Mukund Kamath went on to specialize in the culinary arts at the Central Food Technology & Research Institute (CFTRI) in Mysuru, which stood him in good stead when he made the leap into the area of snacks and food production. The training, which he underwent at National Dairy Research Institute, Bengaluru, motivated him to innovate in the core area of the family business, that of Ice Cream manufacturing.

He was instrumental in setting up a state-of-the-art Ice Cream manufacturing unit in 2003 and successfully expanded markets in coastal Karnataka, south Goa and north Kerala. “Pabba’s”, yet another jewel in Mangaluru’s Ice Cream scenario and the most visited Ice Cream parlour of coastal Karnataka, which serves a range of Ice Cream sundaes made using fresh ingredients, was also his creation in 1996. The landmark “Ideal Café” in the city is his brainchild, which he initiated in 2011.

He has also been felicitated as a young entrepreneur by several institutions of repute such as The Campco Ltd. and The Karnataka Pradesh Hotels Association. On the personal front, Mukund is a trained Hindustani classical musician and a sportsman as well.

His well-rounded personality lends him the impetus to foresee trends and steer the business towards new accomplishment and growth. Today, Mukund aims at making Ideal Ice Cream a national brand. Without doubt, his penchant for quality consciousness, his dynamism and perseverance will help him transform his dreams into reality and take the brand from strength to strength.
