Sol is a fresh take on the tradition of food gifting. It prioritises health and life through thoughtfully curated bundles packed with the best of Berrika. The bundles feature an assortment of life-affirming and mood-altering picks from hand picked berries to exquisite Brie. Celebratory though they are, you’ll never need the excuse of festivities to gift Berrika because your health and the health of your loved ones deserves to be celebrated daily.
The brand story
Berrika is an effort to make the world a smaller place, with a little help from the farmers of the world, who bring abundance to our kitchen & tables to pass on to you.
“We needed to extend this basket of enriching abundance to our loyal customers and food enthusiasts accustomed to and longing for good produce, fine ingredients and fresh flavours. A lot of what you have missed about your travels and visits to our restaurants, Berrika will bring to your home. From meticulously selected blueberries to a niche cheese, from healthful cold-pressed juices to a selection of fine charcuterie”, add Berrika founders Dinesh Shinde and Krysh Bajaj.
As cities retreated indoors and hushed up in response to an unprecedented situation, Krysh Bajaj and Dinesh Shinde turned their attention to the new needs emerging at this time. The entrepreneur and importer respectively, both with deep roots in the restaurant industry, set out to redefine groceries for a people now acutely invested in their own health and interested in the provenance and quality of their food. With ample expertise in the trading industry as well as the hospitality industry for over decades, Berrika is their joint venture that is bringing the world together.
