Story of Aweri Foods

Story of Aweri Foods

Thank you so much for visiting our website. I am delighted to have you here and I hope that we get to know each other.

Aweri Foods was founded in January 2021, just following the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic. After working for close to 5 years in the corporate sector, I quit my job in a bid to establish my own business. While looking for business ideas, I discovered that there is a market for pickles, but no one is selling dates pickle. I viewed this as an opportunity to share the delicious pickle I had grown up enjoying, with people all around the world.

Why dates pickle, you ask? Well, it’s my grandmother’s recipe. She makes a big jar of the delicious dates pickle every year which we relish with our meals. You should also know that “Aweri” is a small village in the Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh. It is my grandmother’s hometown. I named the brand after this village as a tribute to her.

I hope that you enjoy eating our pickle as much as we enjoy making it.

I would love to get in touch if you need to know more about us or have any feedback. I am available at akshay@aweri.in
