Our Story
Akshar Herbs and Spices was founded by Deviyani Jamindar, a retired officer from the New York Fire Department, together with her niece, Nirali Pandya, an experienced auditor of organic farms and companies. At a time when retirement was imminent, they thought of a way to positively impact the world.
On noticing the nutritional hazards plaguing developed countries and the poverty in rural regions of developing countries, a purpose was found. Akshar bridges the gap between two worlds: provide the Americas and Europe more organic alternatives to their diet, while improving the lives of rural farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa through Direct Trade and providing market for 100% of their produce.
All our products are organically grown. Akshar has established long-standing relationships with dozens of organic suppliers. To us, nothing matters more than supplying our customers with the highest quality products, growing with our local suppliers, and conserving the environment.
