Ipshita and her husband Amrit grew up in India. Both had successful careers individually but a desire to work together and to start a family prompted their move to Upstate New York. While Amrit went back to school, Ipshita explored her passion to create clean and healthy food for the whole family.
After much experimentation, Ipshita decided it was time for consumers and two crates to decide their fate.
The first read, Don’t like it!!! (Don’t quit your day job”).
The other read: Like it!!! (Quit your day job).
By the end of the day, Amrit and Ipshita had served hundreds of people and they were excited to see that the second crate was full of empty cups.
Then came the choice – make it yourself OR have someone else make it for you. They decided to do it themselves and leased a small creamery, 50 miles away from home. After two years, of small-batch manufacturing and sales from the back of their car, their lassi got noticed by retailers around the country. They had to scale operations! These first-time entrepreneurs went all-in and built their own plant in Freeville, NY. The learning curve of running your own plant was steep but their belief of creating chef-crafted, non-boring food was strong and so was the support of their families, colleagues and their community.
The pairing of our founders’ journeys with the Land of Abundance (Milk and Honey) had taken root and Indian Milk & Honey was born!
