Leading Ayurvedic food accompaniment brand, Kacchi London, has been named among the top food and drink producers globally this year, having won a revered Great Taste Award for its curry leaf powder sachets.

The Great Taste Awards, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink and has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world.

The unmistakable black and gold Great Taste logo is a sign people can trust when buying local food and drink and is a stamp of excellence that is recognised by retailers and consumers alike.

With more than 14,000 products put through the competition’s rigorous blind judging process, the easy-to-use Kacchi London curry leaf sachet was a hit with the esteemed Great Taste judges and dubbed a “vibrantly coloured spice blend” that “was very well-balanced and more-ish”.

Made with curry leaves, split Bengal lentils, sesame seeds, cumin, dried mango powder, black pepper, red chilli powder and salt, the curry leaf sachets are the ideal addition to any dish.

Founded in 2020, Kacchi London is an innovative food brand providing a range of Ayurvedic spices and seasonings. When first faced with gut health and digestion issues, the founder, Aradhana Bhandari, turned to her Indian heritage to discover a holistic approach to health that had been utilised by her family for generations.

Bhandari, founder of Kacchi London, said: “I’m so proud to have won a Great Taste Award for my curry leaf sachets. I created all my products using ancient Ayurvedic ingredients that have been enjoyed by my family for centuries, so to have successfully brought these to market and for them to be recognised by such an influential body is a huge moment for my brand.

“After launching Kacchi London during the Coronavirus pandemic, we decided to pivot our offering to make the products more accessible, sustainable and cost-effective, and the launch of the sachets represents this.

“I’m continuing to explore new foods and flavours within Ayurveda that I can bring to the Kacchi London brand, and seal of approval from the Great Taste judging panel on our already established products is fantastic support for our work so far.”

The curry leaf sachet [as well as the larger Kacchi London product jars] are available from the Kacchi London website, RRP: £1.90 [1 tbsp].
