Pallavi Upadhyaya is a social entrepreneur who wants to bring millets back to the mainstream and make these Indian super foods accessible to all. Inspired from her own personal health journey and having reaped the benefits of a millet based diet first hand, she started “Millets for health,” a social enterprise dedicated to the revival of millets.
Millets for Health works with small farmers, NGOs and farmer producer companies to encourage cultivation of millets and works at the urban end by doing activities and events to bring millets back to the tables of consumers. Apart from sale of millets, they focus on ensuring diet diversity by encouraging people to include more millets in their meals. They conduct cooking workshops, undertake millet based catering and tasting sessions. Millets for Health is also working on curating traditional as well as contemporary millet recipes of all cuisines.
