Esmen's Curry Powder

Home-based curry powder makes international debut

Elizabeth Ainsworth is a Caribbean-Canadian entrepreneur and curry enthusiast. She has been making major strides in spreading the gospel of curry, as her unique brand Esmen’s Curry Powder continues to expand, please palates and gain global favour with foodies and experts alike.

Boasting a unique formula which came to Jamaica from India by Elizabeth’s great-grandmother, Esmen’s Curry Powder is the end result of successful experimentation with traditional curry which effectively balances rich and deliciously spiced flavour.

Esmen's Curry Powder
The generational-inspired recipe came to Jamaica from India by Elizabeth’s great-grandmother and uniquely combines 5 spices.

The beloved recipe is a fusion of turmeric, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, fenugreek seeds and black peppercorn blended in small proportions to ensure the highest quality in its flavour and to maintain the authentic and rich aroma in curry dishes. These spices are packed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which promote many health and digestive benefits.

Curry powder reaches UK, Canada, US and Caribbean

The journey of Esmen’s Curry Powder began in Jamaica in 1984, when Elizabeth’s mother (after whom the product is named) started selling the curry powder as a home-based business in order to fund her daughter’s education.

The curry powder made its international debut years later when Elizabeth was living in England and prepared dishes for friends using the family’s signature spice. The immediate approval and consequent demand for it propelled her into becoming an ambassador and distributor for the UK market.

Fast forward to present day, now residing in Canada, Elizabeth was energised with motivation during the pandemic lockdown to relaunch the brand and take it to the masses.

The Jamaica-born, Toronto-based businesswoman spoke on the praise which the brand has received from the public, the media and renowned social media influencers saying, “I have had positive feedback from everyone. They love how the 5 spices combined, authentically flavoured and aromatised their curry dishes as well as the high-quality packaging for the powder itself.”

The family owned and operated business has already made massive inroads and gotten the products to various consumers and retail outlets in the greater Toronto area, across Canada and even in the US, adding to its already established UK presence.
