Mekhala Organic Cooking Pastes
ORGANIC . VEGAN . GLUTEN FREE . NUT FREE . DELICIOUS . ASIAN
Mekhala (which means “Goddess” in Thai) was born out of the desire for quality, natural products for our own families, while my co-founder and I were mindfully enjoying some relaxing days in contact with nature at her vegan retreat in Chiang Mai, Thailand. As a working mother, I was frustrated with all the artificial additives and preservatives, and the high amounts of sugar in most Asian store-bought products, but did not have the time to cook from scratch. So I roped in my sister (and current Chief Sauceress), Diane, and we got busy. Inspired by the vegan meals at the retreat, we created a range of clean and flavorful products for ourselves and our customers. After all, why can’t life be delicious, easy and healthy?
We set ourselves to make a difference by contributing to a better life that’s easier, healthier, and tastier for all. Mekhala has since grown into a well-loved Singaporean/Thai whole foods brand that produces organic, all-natural, gluten-free, vegan-friendly foods made with only the best ingredients. Based in Singapore, we make our products in our own facility in Chiang Mai, where we source beautiful ingredients from local farmers. We also provide good working conditions and fair practices for women from the marginalised Burmese Shan community to improve their welfare, and we have developed a system that allows us to hire even those who are illiterate .
It's hard to choose a favourite from our versatile, delicious and easy-to-use range of Thai and South-East-Asian certified organic pastes!
Make curries, use in stir fries, as a marinade or a condiment, with a touch of love!
