How Shark Tank brand Jhaji achieved 4x revenue growth with growth capital?
Shark Tank brand, Jhaji, growth with debt funding

Among the multiple cherished things in an Indian household are the TV dramas of saas-bahu, dadi’s homemade pickles, and the bond between a nanad and bhabhi (sister-in-laws). Now, the first thing that comes to mind on hearing the nanad-bhabhi duo is the unmissable story from Shark Tank Season 1. Jhaji, a traditional pickle brand, offers Ghar Jaisa Swaad, Phir Se and perfectly embodies that no business is too small. They thoroughly encapsulate that if one dares to dream big, IT IS possible to achieve it.

Rewind to December 2021, right after their Shark Tank episode aired, Jhaji saw their sales grow 400% almost overnight, skyrocketing from INR 5 lakh to INR 20 lakh a month.
