DesiVDesi launches healthy snacks made using solar technology

DesiVDesi, a sustainable technology-backed food processing company, launches on-the-go healthy snacking options created using solar conduction dryer, its patented sustainable food drying technology. The company packages natural nutrient-dense, preservative-free, gluten-free vegetable chips and dehydrated fruit chunks, which are sourced and processed by farmers using this technology.

With DesiVDesi, consumers can now eat fruits and vegetables as snacks and not restrict them to meals alone. In addition, as a socially conscious start-up, DesiVDesi has become one of the first few enterprises to bring about a change in the lives of farmers providing them with additional income with the launch of its innovative food products. The product line includes Veggie Chips - Spinach Crisps and Beetroot Chips in the savoury segment and Fruit Chunks - Chickoo Chips, Pineapple Chunks, Kokum Amla Candy and Muskmelon Chunks in the tangy and sweet category.

Commenting on the launch, Nidhi Pant, Co-Founder, DesiVDesi, said, “At DesiVDesi, we constantly strive to provide a tasty, healthy, and on-the-go snacking option in a bid to promote a healthier lifestyle in India. With a mission to revolutionize the snacking space by introducing products that contributes to consumer’s overall health and wellness, all of our products are oil free and are directly processed at farm level. Furthermore, our final products are made completely without oil, i.e. they are not fried, roasted or baked, are 100% natural, rich in vitamins and minerals, and are delicious and tasty to eat. We also create an effective distribution channel, providing market access to enhance income of the farmers, and making a solid social impact in transforming their lives for the better.”

DesiVDesi’s patented Solar Conduction Dryer has been recognized by USAID, FICCI, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, UN, Bayer, and other national and international organizations. It is the main aspect behind its range of delicious and healthy snacks, which includes Kiwi slices, mango strips, beetroot chips, and more.

With its innovative products, DesiVDesi is attempting to solve two problems: combating unhealthy snacking patterns among kids and adults with a healthier alternative, and empowering farmers to earn better revenue margins.
