Gouri’s didn’t begin with the aim of expanding or building a company or even moving it out of my own kitchen. It began with the simple desire to help my family eat better – to cut out the processed stuff that was taking over our shelves and replace them with ingredients I knew and trusted. And gradually things changed, and I found myself navigating new spaces, growing in ways I hadn’t imagined or foreseen. And that’s the thing about women – we adapt. We work, we’re moms, we’re homemakers, we’re bosses; we can be all these things, or some of them, or none of them – and that’s okay, so long as we can choose our own paths. Happy Women’s Day to everybody reading – let’s work towards a world where we don’t need to set aside one day a year to celebrate ourselves!
