From a small health food store, which opened its doors in the heart of Zurich in 1978, Madal Bal has steadily grown into a multifaceted, international company.
How everything started – The founder of the company, K. A. Beyer, has always been fascinated by alternative lifestyles. In 1972, while he was studying psychology, he met Sri Chinmoy and began practicing meditation. After Beyer had finished his studies, he opened his first health food store, which Sri Chinmoy named ‘Madal Bal’.
The human focus – Our primary goal has always been to manage our company focusing on people, be it client or employee, rather than on the pure maximisation of profit. This idea is reflected in all of Madal Bal’s business branches.
Our business activities:

Today Madal Bal is a healthy, steadily expanding company. Successful trend shops and wholesale rank as our main business in Switzerland, Austria, Germany, India, Italy, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary.

Philosophy

Sri Chinmoy’s simple and yet profound philosophy has not only had a strong impact on Beyer’s personal life but also influences his way of managing the company.

Every day afresh

The idea of service is one of the core elements of our company’s philosophy – always give your best, see each day as a new opportunity, face new challenges and transcend yourself constantly. This applies not only to Madal Bal as a whole but also to each of our employees.
