Food of Gods is on a resolute mission to break away from the commoditisation of spices and revive the lost connection between spices and their innate ability to enhance our culinary experiences, heal our bodies, and nourish our souls.
Prerna Baruah's first-hand experience of pure spices grown at source, during her visits to farms in Iran, Zanzibar, India and Ghana made her aware of the contrasting reality of food ingredients sold in neighbourhood grocery stores in India to the shelves of upscale departmental stores in Switzerland.
Motivated by her passion to build a brand with a key focus on nutrition and transparency, Food of Gods launched in Accra in 2021 and expanded in the UK in 2023.
She spent 2 years forging deep relationships with farmers across India, Sri Lanka, Ghana & Madagascar with a vision to build a direct transparent supply chain that provides consumers access to the finest & freshest single-estate spices.
Prerna is an advocate of transparent food provenance & championing her farm partner's small-scale regenerative agricultural practices that are critical for conserving biodiversity and building a socially & economically sustainable agricultural ecosystem.
Our spices are heirloom varieties that are grown for flavour and potency instead of commercial hybrids grown for yield. Our farm partners put flavour above yield and are passionate guardians of bio-diverse food forests - the result is potent, incredibly flavourful spices that reaches your pantry in less than 3 months after harvest, every single year.
We work with some of the best regenerative farmers across Madagascar, India, Sri Lanka & Ghana. They are multi-generational farms that practices natural, traditional farming methods. They are driven by passion and guided by generational expertise, and they relentlessly focus on the health of the soil without disturbing the ecology around which their spices grow.
