The history of Jute manufacturing is lost in the narrow passage of time. As a plant jute (Corchorus capsularis and Corchorus olitorius) was believed to have been cultivated around 800 B.C. In these environmentally conscious times, jute contributes lasting solutions to the universal problem of pollution. It is environment friendly as its contents are cellulose and lignin, which are biodegradable. Like most synthetic products, it does not generate toxic gases when burnt. The jute fibre is available in inexhaustible quantities and at comparatively low prices. It also has the potential to replace several expensive fibres and scarce forest resources.

The Kankaria Group is one of the pioneers in the Jute Industry today. With its jute units producing about a hundred qualities of fabrics and yarns. The jute mills of the Group produce some of the world's best jute products, which are passed through the most stringent of quality tests. These tests are conducted at each stage of the manufacturing process by an in-house, dedicated quality control department at each plant.


Bally Jute Mills in association with Indian Jute Industries' Research Association was the first to develop and successfully implement the commercial production of Hydrocarbon Free jute bags and cloth by using Rice Bran Oil II (RBO II) as a substitute to Jute Batching Oil (JBO) in the jute industry. Earlier it was found that jute bags (used in cocoa packaging) manufactured through JBO process led to hydrocarbon contamination in the food stuff. With RBO process jute bags have been declared safe for packaging of food products like cocoa, coffee, peanuts, hazelnuts, rice and other grains. The use of RBO has also been approved by the IOCCC.
