Taste of Nature emerged from the necessity to preserve large quantities of fruit that go waste in the Auroville community. Since then we have developed a line of products that we feel will provide a valuable alternative to those looking for healthier food alternatives. Now we would like to scale up our activity and make available our products to people across the cities in India and abroad.
