Southern Art Co.

Created out of a mother and daughter's shared love for Southern staples, this Korean inspired spice brand is reimagining the flavors we all know and love. Southern Art Co. was developed by a mother born in South Korea who desired to blend her native flavors with that of her Georgia born daugher's favorite cuisines. During her daughter's time in college, she shipped homemade sauces and even frozen meats marinated in spices ensuring she'd always have a piece of home. Through popularity and constant requests from friends nearby, the mother daughter duo decided to bottle these sauces and spice blends thus birthing Southern Art Co.

There's nothing like a mother's love but what's better are her care packages! This Indian inspired spice brand was developed from a mother and daughter's love for familiar cuisine from across the coast. What originally started out as PODI college care packages created to help bring her mother's Indian dishes to life quickly became a way of sharing Indian cuisine with the world. PODI Life's products consist of a blend of spices described as dry sauce blends that, unlike many spice blends, are ready to eat to help in experiencing delicious Indian inspired flavors with ease.
