About Us

Co-Founder & Chief Meats Officer: Meherwan Bawa

Co-Founder & Managing Partner: Mehma Bawa


Artisan Meats is a force to be reckoned with in the Indian Food scene.
We are a homegrown brand seeking to produce international-level quality cured and preserved meats using locally available produce. We have moved away from heavily mechanized processes and are bringing back traditional practices of handling and processing meat. We strive to learn and apply the age-old methods of preserving and curing meat from around the world. We believe that if our ancestors could work without chemicals, emulsifiers and whatnot, then why can't we? Our product line is dynamic and undergoes constant innovation to improve flavours, textures and experiences. Our goal is to handle all parts of processing meat, right from the farming, to the delivery of products to our customers, to ensure a guaranteed quality experience to our patrons.
