Sana Javeri Kadri is the founder of Diaspora Co., a direct trade spice company working towards a radically equitable, sustainable, and more delicious spice supply chain.
Born and raised in Mumbai, India, amidst a big family of doers, idealists and changemakers, she’s spent her brief 26 years on earth thinking mostly about food – how it grows, who grows it, and who has access to it. She’s also worked just about every job in the food industry from line cook, to farmer, to historical menu researcher.
Building Diaspora Co. from a wild idea, with $3k to her name, into an award winning, nationally acclaimed brand that supports over 100 small indian farmers and farm laborers in just two years, has been nothing short of a dream for Sana, and she’s just getting started.
Sana currently lives between Mumbai, India and Oakland, CA, and wherever there are crunchy vegetables to be found.
