IMaya Kaimal, a leader in the Indian-inspired ethnic foods category, has just received an investment from a leading private equity firm.

The funder is North Castle, a private equity firm focused on consumer businesses that promote healthy, active and sustainable living.

For its part, Maya Kaima’s award-winning product line has grown to include shelf stable sauces, condiments and ready-to-eat dals and rices, in addition to the original line of fresh sauces. Maya Kaimal products are sold nationwide, including Whole Foods Market, Safeway-Albertsons, Target and Costco.

Maya Kaimal products are made from clean, quality ingredients, and, many meet the demands of vegan, vegetarian, organic, gluten free and kosher consumers. 

The group was founded by award winning cookbook author Maya Kaimal, who was inspired by family recipes to expand the way North Americans think about Indian food. She personally oversees the creation of her collection, from packaging design to final recipe.

”We are proud to partner with Maya and her team,” said North Castle Managing Director Alison Minter.  “The Maya brand stands for high quality products and ingredients, authenticity, innovation, and great tasting products.  We believe this business has significant growth potential as the macro trends of consumers looking to expand their flavor profile and at-home convenience drives the overall category.”
