History

"The Tasty Bite brand was launched in the US in 1995 with 5 all-natural,
ready-to-eat Indian entrees. 20 years later, it is America's largest brand
of prepared Indian food Today, our products are available in US, Canada,
Australia, New Zealand, Japan and UK. Our products include Indian meals,
Asian meals & noodles and a line of organic ready-to-eat rices and
whole grains. In India we launched the Tasty Bite Food Service business (TFS)
in 2006. We make a range of sauces and formed frozen products to
leaders in the Food service industry".

Manufacturing

In many ways, the Tasty Bite factory is not much different from
your kitchen, except larger! A wide variety of grains and
vegetables are slow-cooked in large-scale kettles with a myriad of
spices from around the world. The food is filled in unique,
multi-layered BPA-free pouches. They are then sealed and
sterilized in a retort oven to maintain freshness for over 18
months. Our process uses no artificial flavors, additives or
preservatives and ensures a high retention of the food's original
aroma, texture, nutrients, and flavor. Our factory is located near
the city of Pune, in the rich agricultural region of Western India.

The Farm

At Tasty Bite, variety is the spice of life.
We use 75 vegetables, 75 spices and condiments,
42 grains and 10 dry fruits in our delicious carefully prepared products.
The Tasty Bite in-house organic farm acts both as a source of some our produce,
and as a demonstration farm where we interact with our large
community of farmers and exchange information and learnings on modern
organic farming techniques and sustainable package of practices.

Environment

80% of the energy used to make a pouch of Tasty Bite comes from renewable sources. Sugarcane waste, widely available in our region, is the primary renewable energy source. The Tasty Bite farm also employs unique rainwater harvesting techniques to recharge the groundwater in our area. This is of critical importance, considering the rapid depletion of groundwater in many parts of India and the world.

Additionally, we have a major water recycling program. Through a combination of water and effluent treatment, we are able to reuse several hundred thousand liters of water a day, making us perhaps one of the most water efficient companies in the industry.

Community

In our own small way, we are doing our part to support the community around us. Our primary focus areas are education and disaster relief. We have established a scholarship fund for the children of our factory workers, donated funds to create a science lab at a local school, and offered continued support to adult literacy programs in our community.

In supporting disaster relief around the world, our Tasty Bite packaging technology proves quite effective. Each pouch is ready-to-eat and requires no refrigeration or additional water, which is invaluable in emergency situations. Tasty Bite has shipped food to victims and relief workers of many natural disasters including Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, the Asian Tsunami, the earthquake in Haiti, the typhoon in the Philippines, and many others.

Tasty Bite has been ranked by the Great Places to Work Institute as one of the Top 50 Indian companies to work for in 2009, 2010 and 2012.
