Traditionally handcrafted foods...
‘Naturellement’ [na-tu-rè-le-man] means ‘natural’ in French and the unit is strictly faithful to its name.
Through over 30 years of research and development, we have created an extensive product line of natural/organic handcrafted food products, available throughout India. Our extensive product line ranges from jams to breakfast cereals, fruit syrups to condiments, over 40 products in all. All products are made in small batches with carefully selected high quality raw material,
organic and locally sourced if available.

Organic Farming – Sustainable Practices – Women Empowerment
We support organic farming, we use sustainable practices, but most importantly the backbone
of our company consists of our team of women from the surrounding villages.
Through years of training and education they have turned into highly skilled culinary artisans.
Our Humble Beginnings
In 1990 Naturellement started its endeavour in a simple store-room in the food distribution complex, “Pour Tous,” with the idea of producing a few breakfast products for the community, as well as taking care of the surplus fruit from Auroville’s gardens and orchards. Initiated by two Swedish women, a few ladies from the nearby village were employed and trained. The hope was that the little enterprise would after some time be taken care of by the local women themselves.
But the women, mostly illiterate, needed help when the products quickly became popular and orders started coming from Pondicherry and Chennai. Over the years, the demand for high quality food products continuously grew and created what is our company today; a fully fledged modern production unit with an in house bakery as well as a restaurant and a gift shop, giving employment to over 30 women from the surrounding villages.
