ĀMĀKO, an intergenerational mother-daughter company that started in 2017, produces small batches of handcrafted and homemade seasonal achārs (pickles) prepared in the traditional style of Gurungs from the Parbat region.

Our achārs are seasonal because we wholly believe in making and consuming food as and when nature delivers to us. We grow a lot of the vegetables and spices used in our products, and every step of the achār-making process is intentional and involves the whole family. Currently, we have 19 different kinds of achar.

ĀMĀKO means mother's in Nepali. Our āmā is Bhimi Gurung and her daughter is Muna Gurung. They live in Kathmandu, Nepal.
