After failing to find quality, natural products for her family and clients of her retreat in Chiang Mai, Thailand, my co-founder Jang Bauerle and I teamed up to found Mekhala. As a new, working mother, I had little time to cook, but wanted fresh healthy, home-made meals for my family and myself. I was frustrated with all the artificial additives and preservatives, and the high amounts of sugar in most Asian store-bought products. Together with my sister and Chief Sauceress, Diane, we created a range of yum products, inspired by the vegan meals at the retreat, for ourselves and our customers. After all, why can't life be delicious, easy and healthy?
Mekhala (which means "Goddess" in Thai) has since grown into a Singaporean/Thai whole foods brand that produces organic, all-natural, gluten and nut-free, vegan-friendly foods that make life easier, healthier and tastier for all. Our aim is to help everyone become kitchen Gods an Goddesses! Based in Singapore, we manufacture our products in our own facility in Chiang Mai, where we source beautiful ingredients from local farmers.
Sadly, Jang passed away during this time, but we continue to bring our dream to every customer – great, wholesome and sustainable Asian foods for you and your loved ones, giving back to the community, free of cruelty to the planet and to all living creatures. We hope you enjoy our products as much as we love making them for you.
