NATURAL, ARTISANAL, HOMEGROWN
Every marketplace needs an identity- a set of defining characteristics that bind the community together and allow customers to understand what it stands for. At ShopHop – we like to define ourselves and our brands as 'natural, artisanal, homegrown'. What exactly does this mean?
Natural: all our products are organic, sustainably produced or made entirely of natural ingredients with no artificial additives or preservatives often found in mass-produced brands
Artisanal: handpicked by ShopHop's sourcing team – our brands offer funky twists on traditional recipes, span across an array of ethnic & gourmet foods or are made with unique (sometimes patented!) methods of production
Homegrown: sourced from budding chefs and entrepreneurs across kitchens and farms across the country and often made farm fresh here on Indian soil.
