Every year, the local community comes together to prepare these superfoods in a celebration of tradition.
Their honest spirit inspired us to work towards a sustainable seed-to-snack practice in Bihar.
Zenko Superfoods is a modern snacking company founded by two friends who have a passion for discovering healthy and nutritious foods and transforming them to tasty, delicious and “less-guilty” snacks for today’s generation.
Our Mission and Values
Healthier snacking does not have to be boring, dull or tasteless. That’s not what Zenko Superfoods is about. Our mission is to discover nutritious snacking alternatives and develop and market them to a new generation of health-conscious consumers.
We value people over profits and that is why we spend our time travelling to far-flung areas (Bihar in the foothills of the Himalayas in the case of our Water Lily Pops) to meet with farmers and producers to understand their ways of life and aspirations…and see how we as a modern, ethical food company can bring mutually beneficial outcomes to those involved to ultimately market innovative, healthier snacks to a global audience.
Zenko’s launch products are Water Lily Pops, colloquially known as “makhana”. This super food originates from the villages around the Himalayas in an environment that is perfect for growing and harvesting water lily seeds in a sustainable, responsible way. Water Lily Pops are naturally packed with plant-based protein, amino acids, and anti-oxidants and offer a healthier, gluten-free non-GMO alternative to on-the-go snacking.
Zenko Water Lily Pops come in four delicious flavors – Peri Peri, Himalayan Pink Salt, Coconut and a Cinnamon Caramel – and available on our website, at RedMart and FairPrice Finest in Singapore. And for our friends in Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines, Zenko Water Lily Pops will be available starting in March 2020.
