Nela Patel

Born in Wellington, Nela frequently travelled to India from a young age.


She has a passion for exploring and sourcing holistic medical spices for use in food and hot drinks.  Since co-founding her business with daughter Preehya in 2015  the company has expanded its range to include condiments, sauces and spice blends to inspire people to create high quality delicious meals without the preservatives.


All the spices in Nela’s products are ethically sourced, roasted and freshly ground, giving rise to a superior aroma and flavour. To top it off, all products are made right here in Island Bay, Wellington!
