Feroke is a town in the Kozhikode district of the Indian state of Kerala. Feroke is the cradle of the tile industry in Kerala. The rapid rivers from the Western Ghats after passing through forests carry the clay which is the raw-material for tiles, pottery and ceramic wares. There are more than a dozen tile factories in Feroke alone.
Cheruvannur and Feroke are predominant industrial areas of Kozhikode. A number of tile factories, match factories etc. are located here, providing employment to thousands of workers. The Steel complex is also located here.
Earlier Tipu Sulthan named the place Farookhabad which in turn derived to Feroke.
