Customer's Praise

I have been a loyal customer of Midas Soy Nutritions for the past six months. I am an international volunteer from Canada living in Bhubaneswar, Orissa, India for one year, where I am working on a development project for the Orissa Association for the Blind. I am a vegan, and maintaining a balanced diet, free of all animal products has been a top priority for me as I settle into my new life. Unfortunately, I have discovered that ‘Tofu’ is hard to acquire in India outside of large cities. I had the good fortune to come across Midas Soy Nutritions when performing a Google search for ‘Tofu’ manufacturers in India.

I wrote to Midas Soy Nutritions inquiring about how I could obtain some of their products, and was pleasantly surprised when Mr. Diepak S. Talwalker wrote back promptly to inform me that his company could make deliveries overnight via Indian Railways. Midas Soy Nutritions always makes me feel as though I am a valued customer for them. They deliver their products to me quickly and without any hassles.

I have been ordering firm ‘Tofu’ from Midas Soy Nutritions, and I eat some almost every day. I fancy myself a bit of a ‘Tofu’ connoisseur and it is both my honour and privilege to report that this company offers some of the highest quality ‘Tofu’ that I have ever tried. This is why I continue to order from them. I have made countless delightful meals, and I have even convinced a few Tofu skeptics of the virtues exemplified by this soy masterpiece. The texture is perfect for making stir-fries, scrambled tofu and Tofu pakoras. The flavour is subtle yet delectable, and easily infused into all dishes.

The combination of outstanding culinary products and commendable customer service practices proves that Midas Soy Nutritions is an exemplary business. Not only do I recommend their delicious firm ‘Tofu’, I am confident that Midas Soy Nutritions will make you feel like their number one customer.

Sincerely,

It's 5:30 am on Tuesday morning. I am pulled from my peaceful sleep by the sound of my cellphone alarm, a welcome change from the screech of the bus horns, bound for Puri. I dress quickly in the still darkness of the morning, and make my way to the chalk. I wait until I hear the hum of a rickshaw, flag it down and say “platform charey railway ray” or “platform four in the railway”. I somehow negotiate a twenty rupee fare, and I am let out at the rear of the East Coast railway station. I scurry inside, and then wait on the catwalk to hear the speakers announce my train. I check the notepad that I prepared the night before where I jotted down the coach and a name I can't pronounce. I wait until the train pulls in, then I chase the car towards its resting place. I jump on when the last person exits. I find the attendant, tell him my name, and indicate that I am collecting a package. He walks over to a compartment, unlocks it and hands me a cold, brown cardboard box. 'It's here at last! I'm sleeping in for the rest of the week!', I think to myself.

As a vegan volunteer, I was thrilled to have received a placement in India. A country so friendly to vegetarians is a great place to be, especially when I could have ended up in Jamaica or Mongolia. The one thing I didn't think through was the availability of tofu which, I came to find, is not readily available in Bhubaneswar, Orissa. I found this particularity distressing because soy is the only source of complete vegetable protein, and tofu happens to be my favourite food (no really) .

I took my woes to the internet, and quickly found some tofu manufacturers in India. I sent off emails asking how I could obtain their products and Midas Soy Nutritions sent me a prompt reply. They notified me that I could receive their firm tofu by train as long as I ordered it in 5 kg installments. It keeps in the fridge for sixty days, and is sent on a passenger train in trust with one of the AC attendants. I now place an order approximately once every six weeks, and I have lots of fun infusing the tofu into Indian dishes. Midas really makes quality tofu and goes above and beyond for their customers. If you are missing this tasty delicacy in your placement, look no further and organise your very own Tofu Express.

The combination of outstanding culinary products and commendable customer service practices proves that Midas Soy Nutritions is an exemplary business. Not only do I recommend their delicious firm ‘Tofu’, I am confident that Midas Soy Nutritions will make you feel like their number one customer.
