Diaspora Co. Single-Origin Pragati Turmeric
Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh
Grown by the Kasaraneni family amidst marigolds, bananas, and black rice on their 4th generation farm. Whilst Mr. Prabhu Kasaraneni’s family has been farming for three generations, he is a self-taught organic farmer who began growing heirloom Pragati turmeric in 2015, with assistance from the Indian Institute of Spice Research.
Diaspora Co is one of the coolest vendors in California. A queer, woman-of-color owned business that moves forth in the spirit of radical community, matriarchy, and social justice, intending on truly creating change through food systems.
Diaspora Co puts money, equity and power in the hands of Indian farmers, and disrupts and decolonizes a colonial, outdated commodity spice trading system that profits only the trader.
