Bengaluru: PC Musthafa, Founder & CEO of iD Fresh Food, which makes batter for idlis and dosas, has become the youngest recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Awards (DAA) in the history of the Indian Institute of Management-Bangalore (IIMB). He was conferred with the award, during the 45th Foundation Day celebrations of IIMB on Sunday.

His company, iD Fresh Food, which he started with his cousins Abdul Nazer, Shamsudeen TK, Jafar TK and Noushad TA in 2005, is a ₹1,000-crore company today.

Starting with 10 packets of batter a day in 2005, iD Fresh Food today manufactures over 50,000 packets of batter a day and employs over 1000 people at their units in Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune, Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, and Dubai.

Besides Musthafa, the two other recipients of the award are S Vaidyanathan (PGP 1992), co-founder of The Ganga Trust, and MV Rajamannar (PGP 1985), chief marketing and communications officer and president-healthcare business, Master Card.
