Nothing excites us more than discovering homegrown brands that are sourcing ingredients within India and respecting them by maintaining their purity while developing food products. These lesser known brands are taking the world by a storm and we want you to be a part of the wave! Let’s have a look at what has got us so excited!
Kodai Cheese | Buy Now
You guessed it right, Kodai Cheese is a product birthed in Kodaikanal, Tamil Nadu. It started with a bank loan of Rs. 5,000 and is now a 7 crore full fledged business. It’s been an integral part of economic growth in and around their city. The brand offers over 40 kinds of cheese flavours. We love their parmesan the most. It is priced at Rs. 350 for 200 grams. But you must try as many of them as you can!
Good Mylk | Buy Now
If you are a health nut, then chances are that you have heard about Good Mylk. It’s founded by an engineering student, who quit college to make plant-based products a household habit in 2017. And boy, has he taken it places? Good Mylk has raised about 8,00,000 US dollars worth of funding! We have tried each and every product of Good Mylk ourselves and can assure you that the flavours, texture, and consistency of these delicious goods are as close to their dairy counterparts as possible. The Oat and Cashew milk is a total winner but shouldn’t give their vegan butter, chocolate milk, or peanut curd a miss either.
AinMane Chocolate | Buy Now
Ainmane has a focus on chocolates made using cocoa sourced from South India. They are headquartered in Madikeri, Coorg and offer other local pure delicacies like coffee, honey, spreads, spices, pickles, jam, and concentrates as well. Our two favourites are their milk cocoa chocolate with fig and jackfruit chips! Such a novel concept of including indigenous fruits in chocolate, isn’t it? Have a look at their entire range and let us know which one you would try.
Beyond the Bean Tofu | Learn More
We discovered Beyond the Bean tofu while traveling in Goa and were beyond happy to know that now there’s a cool new Goan brand giving a tough fight to imported silken tofu. The softness of their tofu is unparalleled, making it perfect for marination. Plus, its freshness is something we can vouch for. They have a very short shelf life, 11 days, and that’s why they make sure that their shelves are being restocked regularly. Next time you are in Goa, you must buy a pack to cook up something nice.
We are glad we got to experience these scrumptious homegrown delights and hope the same for you. Go get your hands on some and let us know how much you enjoyed them!
