I was in my final year of my MSc Biotechnology course when my son was born prematurely in Manchester in the winter of 2012. I had to put my studies on hold to focus on his care.
As a new mother, I was determined to give my son the best start in life. I researched extensively into weaning recipes and found that traditional millet mixes were a great way to introduce him to solid foods.
I started testing recipes for the best taste that would appeal to our taste buds. When all my family and friends loved my recipe, they wanted more. I realised that I could make my products reach other families too by starting a business.
I faced many challenges along the way, but I never gave up. I worked hard to create a high-quality product that was also affordable. I also built a strong network of supporters who helped me to get my business off the ground.
Today, we are proud and happy that we are the leading producers of traditional Indian millet health mixes in the UK. We have helped thousands of families to give their children a healthy start in life.
I fully understand the importance of hygiene. I prepare all my products at home with a lot of love and care, and we source all ingredients from reputed UK suppliers. My husband helps with the logistics of it all. It’s a team effort!
Sometimes we are inundated with orders and it feels like being on a treadmill. But the effort is worth it when it puts a smile on a mother/child’s face at the other end 🙂
Lots of smiles
