Indigenous. Authentic. Exotic. Diverse. Sustainable. We stand true to our core when it comes to Northeast India.
Our story starts with the community and the indigenous culture that we come from in Northeast India. We derive our strength from the local producers and entrepreneurs who are driven to achieve the same social impact as us. We started our venture during the pandemic as a platform to connect people all over India to entrepreneurs in remote parts of Northeast India who were severely hit because of multiple lockdowns. Some lives changed, some entrepreneurs were born, and some lessons were learnt through this experience.
This time we are diving deeper, into the farms, the kitchens, and the fireplace of homes from every corner of our region, we continue to put quality over quantity. Our conscious effort to give back to mother earth continues through various green initiatives and our willingness to contribute to the ecosystem is at its strongest.
And now with a sharper perspective and stronger community based on our indigenous nature, from the soil of our land to your tables, we present to you, a line of premium indigenous homegrown products! We are your home for organic exquisite resources from your beloved Northeast region of India, AND WE HAVE ARRIVED!
