Parle Products Private Limited started this factory in Vile Parle in the year 1929. Later in 1939, the factory started producing Parle G biscuits by the name ‘Parle Gluco’.

 

Parle Gluco was later changed to Parle G in the year 1980, and since then, it’s been the most popular glucose biscuit in India.

It is being said that the factory situated in Mumbai was unable to give up-to-the-mark output and hence the decision to shut it down was made. The said factory had around 300 workers.

 

Parle G is the highest-selling biscuit in the market. Around 40 crore biscuit packets are produced everyday.

After this news about the factory being shut went viral, Mumbaikars and others took to Twitter to express their emotions and nostalgic stories about Parle G biscuits.
