Pickles are very popular in Bhutan but remain a commodity that is largely imported. In 2010, Mrs. Tshewang Dem had the idea of producing homemade Bhutanese pickles combining a unique blend of local ingredients. Her “Tshejor Ayzey” (homemade pickles) quickly became very popular and were produced in greater quantity to meet a growing market demand. To target chilly lovers living abroad, Mrs. Tshewang also produced and packaged pickles in a way that made them easy to transport.. As a female entrepreneur, Mrs. Tshewang Dem is eager to inspire other women who strive to gain their financial independence. Mrs Tshewang Dem won the award of Loden Entrepreneur of the year 2015.
