Over 70 years ago, Mrs Fernandes started making curry pastes and pickles in Pune, India.

Her authentic produce quickly found favour with the soldiers garrisoned locally, who couldn't stop to grind their own spices or preserve pickles.

Though much has changed with the passage of time, Mrs Fernandes' pastes and pickles are still made by her family in Pune, using only the best local spices and produce.
