Pukka is a Hindi word meaning ‘authentic’, ‘genuine’ or more colloquially ‘top quality’. It comes from the Sanskrit ‘pakwa’ and this sentiment of offering the best quality organic Ayurvedic herbs and service is what Pukka Herbs are all about.
Pukka herbs are ecologically grown and are from sustainable managed projects that are organically certified by the Soil Association
Pukka source their herbs directly from the farming co-operatives they have helped to set up in India and Sri Lanka ensuring the farmers are paid a fair wage (we currently pay 50-200% above market rates for raw materials).
