This box celebrates Sundarbans, its lands, climate and people. It includes a curation of the indigenous salt tolerant rice varieties that are native to the area, turmeric grown and processed by the smallholder farmers and the widely popular single origin wild honey all packed by hand for you to savour and gift.
Known for its rich natural resources, Sundarbans is also an area that is vulnerable to climate change impacting the loss of critical biodiversity. To add to the problem, it also is under considerable threat from biotic pressure, which is partly due to the inclination of the human population to grow and consume standardized high-yielding grain varieties, which to start with were not even part of the natural ecosystem there. We hope that this box encourages you to consume responsibly and understand what the area has to offer without straining its natural resources.
