Mel Hurst and her husband Avi Kewalramani arrived in New Zealand in 2000 with just $5000 in their wallets and the determination to build a successful life here. They set up home, got jobs as flight attendants and started a family.

What they didn’t expect was to turn their love of Indian cooking into a business supplying sauces, curries and spices into gourmet supermarkets and food stores around New Zealand.

Mel’s Gourmet Foods launched in 2006 with a range of traditional, gourmet, Indian curry sauces that are easy for Kiwis to prepare at home. Ever since, Mel’s Gourmet Indian Curry Sauces have been devoured by people all around the country.

From day one, Mel has been the face of the brand, creating a very personal and unique experience.

In this interview, Auckland entrepreneur Mel shares her business startup journey and gives tips for those looking to take the leap and start their own business. https://www.mels.co.nz/
