Mr. Jinoj Kandamkovil

Achiever's Success Story

“I believe only ethical business is a real business. Otherwise, anyone can do money transactions. Especially in an industry like Feminine Hygiene, the smallest compromises might add to profits but the consequences are beyond one’s imagination” – Jinoj K.

Jinoj Kandamkovil is the Founder  and Managing Director of Wager Group comprising of Wager International Pvt Ltd,Wager Packaging Pvt Ltd, Wager Machineries, and Wager Consulting with production units at Kerala, Tamil Nadu, and Maharashtra. He runs India’s only OEM & ODM Company for Sanitary Napkins, also being the most preferred Private Label Manufacturer of Sanitary napkins. He is the Chairman of CHRD(Centre for Hygiene Research and Development) an NGO formed under Wager Group to create awareness on Menstrual Hygiene and the availability of feminine hygiene products to school students.

WAGER’s main stream areas in the field of Sanitary Napkins are:

  1. i)     Automatic Sanitary Napkin Making Machine Fabricators
  2. ii)   Technical Consultants for Sanitary napkin factories

iii)New Product Design Innovators

iv)Sanitary Napkin Product Manufacturers for Private Label

  1. v)   Seamless Packing Solution Providers


Quality, Quantity, and Consistency are their Guarantee features. Jinoj believes in selling solutions and not merely products. At Wager, they have clear benchmarks on the quality of raw materials. Jinoj envisions Indian women would stop deciding on a product based on price, instead of a demand for quality and question every fancy word mentioned on a sanitary napkin packet. After all, by using poor quality napkins we are creating a weaker generation of children as toxic products directly affect their reproductive system

He started in the year 2007, with his research on Sanitary Napkin Vending Machines for schools. In 2009 he manufactured the first set of vending machines and incinerators to be fixed at schools across Kerala helping many school-going girls and working staff to comfortably get access to napkins and to dispose of them safely. Moving towards manufacturing of fully sealed and ultra thin sanitary napkin in the year 2010, today he has created more than 40 private label brands across the country and overseas. His dream is to make India the Manufacturing Hub for Feminine Hygiene Products with Good Manufacturing Practices and Raw Materials that are uncompromising in their quality. The wager is now in the process of setting up associated factories with new and aspiring industrialists by offering their decade long expertise and knowledge support in setting up their factories.

Hailing from Kannur, he was born and brought up in humble family background. He started working as a newspaper boy at the age of 13 after which he crossed many roads of struggle, growth and learning to become India’s youngest Private Label Manufacturer of Sanitary Napkins at the age of 25. JK, as fondly called by his peers, was named the Menstrual Man of Kerala after the news on his services to menstrual hygiene reached places. Jinoj is happily married to Smisha and together they have two handsome boys, Aaron, and Aarav.
