The type of food we consume has a great impact on our well-being. Most foods available in supermarkets are processed and frozen with artificial chemical ingredients like colors, flavors, and preservatives that are harmful to our bodies. Hence, for a healthier lifestyle and well-being, we need to eliminate, wherever possible, chemical/artificial ingredients from our food and switch to foods with natural ingredients.
Veg Coast brings a collection of foods specifically curated, keeping in mind the health and well-being of you and your little ones. “We make sure to make products that are an eclectic blend of taste and nutrition. And are made from fresh, pure, and 100% natural ingredients. All recipes are developed and perfected in-house using only natural ingredients keeping the above statement in mind. Veg Coast ensures a high shelf life without using any preservatives,” says Amruta Ravi Naik, owner of Veg Coast.
Naik claims each formulation goes through shelf-life tests and nutrition sampling by Accredited Labs to validate. According to her, Veg Coast focuses and promises to provide - Uncompromised Taste; Perfectly safe and enjoyable products for Kids; Use of only Natural ingredients like fresh fruits, pure cocoa, rock salt, khandsari (raw unprocessed) sugar, etc in its products; High shelf life without use of artificial preservatives; No Artificial flavors, colors, preservatives or stabilizers; Made in small batches for ensuring quality; Use of only 100% Bio-degradable or re-usable packaging; and Zero use of plastics.
Keeping up with trends
According to Naik, health without compromising on taste has become a trend nowadays and has influenced many consumers. “Through the internet now everyone knows about health and nutrition aspects. Also, people want to be sure of the ingredients and their sourcing. The new consumer has many readily available options at his disposal at the touch of a fingertip. This has resulted in a highly competitive market, in which F&B players focusing on quality and specialty foods stand to benefit the most.”
