Indian Food for Thought

activism, food, podcast, society March 25, 2020

In this episode, I’m chatting with Sana Javeri Kadri, founder of Diaspora Co., a direct trade spice company working towards a radically equitable, sustainable, and more delicious spice supply chain.


Sana, who was born and raised in Mumbai, decided to start her business after working at the intersection of food and culture there.  She discovered that farmers made no money, and spices changed hands upwards of 10 times before reaching the consumer–glaringly similar to the business model enacted during the western, colonial conquest of the Indian subcontinent.

Here’s my conversation with Sana and how to connect with her:
