While sitting together in the Himalayan Forests, the founding team was thinking of an identity which could resemble our values. There came the name Kudej.
Living with a purpose is about engaging towards something larger than yourself. Kudej is a holistic living community that is committed to:

We’re loving what we are building together. By the time you’ve read this, we are sure you’ve decided to become an integral part of the Kudej movement!
Take yourself back in time, a hundred years ago; when people grew their own food, had no hospitals, had to walk for hours to commute, tilling their farms and ladies using pots to churn butter. It all required massive amounts of energy and good health to do such activities. Till old age, they lived a life of vigor and vitality. What is the primary source of their healthy living?
While sitting on the banks of river Kaveri, we got the answer; Native SuperFoods. They practiced daily healthy eating by consuming high quality native superfoods directly sourced from nature. Our ancestors integrated this in their daily lives through culture, folk, stories, festivals, literary works, art and passed on through generations. These native foods were high in nutritional value and possessed tremendous healing powers. At Kudej, we’re creating accessibility of such special foods for your good health.
If you are internally connected, you will externally contribute to the best. Let’s keep practicing daily healthy living as the Kudej community.
Sitting with my mother while traveling in the village, I once asked her “Where do you get this limitless energy to serve?”. She said, “We are educated for greed but wired for connection. It is the act of caring and serving each other in the community that gives us the energy to do more of it each day”.
At Kudej, we build deep connections with rural communities who have been preserving the native superfoods through tradition and culture for several generations. It is by empowering them that is making it possible for us to serve you with the best of superfoods from across Indian rural interiors. You shall get to hear more about them through Kudej products and stories.
