Our Story

 

We’re made by two Mothers

Slurrp Farm was born in October, 2016, to provide healthy, yummy, and natural food for children.

As parents we were really short of tasty and truly healthy options to feed our children. We soon realized that parents of other young children felt the same lack of options they could trust with their eyes closed. It felt like we HAD to do something to make things better. We also wanted to start a business which could be a force for good.

We decided to follow our heart. We dug into recipes from our Grandmothers kitchens and ingredients like Millets from our childhood. And we decided we had to make them tasty.

What followed was a whirlwind of childhood memories. “My mum used to force a Ragi drink down my throat, I wish we could come up with a yummy way to eat Ragi". Our first product was a Chocolate Ragi Cookie, made by a childhood friend who is the most incredible baker. It is yummy!

And in just over three years, what started as an experiment in our own home kitchens has now turned into a loved kids food brand; available serving its first 500,000 customers. We sell across several leading online platforms and our products are available in stores in India and the UAE.

And every year along the way, we want to be better than we were the year before, and always innovating to have the best products possible.
