The most exciting start-up
for 2021 was Mumbai to Maine

Welcome to Mumbai to Maine Maine’s first Indian-inspired culinary brand!

There’s something wonderful about being the first to introduce something unique and special to the world. But I feel like it also comes with tremendous responsibility. I consider myself a culinary ambassador for my homeland, Mumbai and my Goan heritage, here in this beautiful state of Maine.
