About Us

“Drastic lifestyle changes aren’t sustainable. Very few people have the time to cook or eat healthy every day. We don’t force our consumers into ‘healthy living’. Nor do we want to disrupt their routines.
With NutraSphere, we curate natural, tasty and easy to eat products that fit every lifestyle. The results encourage consumers to adopt healthy living, naturally.”

 
- Prakash Rao (Founder & CEO, NutraSphere)
