  • Truly Turmeric EU Launch at SIAL Paris 2018

    01 June 2018

    The world's first wildcrafted, fresh turmeric paste, Truly Turmeric. A Vancouver and Belize based social enterprise aims to make a healthier you easier, while being sustainable and empowering communities.



    This October the Naledo team in Belize and Vancouver are getting ready to launch Truly Turmeric in the EU market. This is the first time turmeric has been exported from Belize. The whole country is cheering on the young people who have worked so hard to bring this product to market.



    "Turmeric has been used as a health food for centuries by our Indian ancestors and we are delighted to make this amazing spice available in an easy to use paste. You can put it in everything - soups, smoothies, and curries. My daughter Nareena has even made a delicious hollandaise sauce with it! I am also so amazed by the team of youth we work with here in Belize. They are so eager to learn and build a thriving social enterprise that will benefit the whole community here in Punta Gorda."

    - Umeeda Switlo, CEO, Naledo



    Unlike powdered turmeric, which is boiled and dried losing many of its essential oils in the process, Truly Turmeric uses the fresh whole root to ensure the natural compounds remain potent and intact. Only the freshest ingredients are used - whole root turmeric, cold pressed coconut oil, fresh lime juice, and sea salt to make accessing the powerful benefits of turmeric easy and delicious! For Truly Turmeric with Black Pepper, Belizean forest grown black pepper is added to the mix.
