Here are three women-helmed companies whose products should be present in every kitchen.
Quality Spices by an Indian “Sorceress”
1. Diaspora Co. Spices
Self-proclaimed “spice sorceress at large”, Sana Javeri Kadri, founded her company Diaspora Co. Spices in 2017 at the age of 23. She works in closer partnership with the Indian Council of Agricultural Research and provides support to farmers who practice sustainable agriculture. Kadri’s brand grew from a single spice to a vibrant series of individual spices, blends, and collaborations. Her ambition is to pay her farm partners an average of six times more than the commodity price and ensure them healthy insurance by the end of 2021.
Women-Led Company by First-Generation Vietnamese Americans
Omsom is founded by Kim and Vanessa Pham, sisters, first-generation Vietnamese Americans, and daughters of refugees. They opened doors with the ambition to start a cultural dialog and bring bold, Asian flavors to consumers. The pair launched their brand in May 2020 at the height of the pandemic, despite being advised to wait until fall. Since then, Omsom has partnered with Disney to release a product in sync with the release of Raya and the Last Dragon.
Home Cooks, Chefs, and Food Writer Trust the Brand
3. Great Jones
Women-led company Great Jones is managed by not one, but two incredibly gifted and competent women. The cookware brand was launched in 2017 by friends Maddy Moelis and Sierra Tishgart. Their brightly colored, sleek-lined pans and pots are named after the illustrious cookbook editor Judith Jones.
The insurgence of different women-led companies gives the modern food industry a much-needed breath of fresh air. Make sure to try these and other brands provided by brilliant women.
