Imli pop, the lollipop with a DESi twist. It is the new avatar of the age-old treat that our grand mom’s used to make when we visited them during our summer break. Imli pop is made with fresh tamarind, jaggery and a host of DESi masala giving it a perfect balance of sweet, sour & spicy.
Imli pops are made in the same traditional manner by hand in small rural kitchens bringing you the most authentic taste with no compromise on quality or hygiene.
Imli pops is completely natural and has no added colour, flavour, preservatives or any added sugar/preservatives.
BOX CONTAINS 50 PIECES
At GO DESi we are creating a packaged food brand inspired by regional formats & flavours. All our products are “As is” i.e. made in the traditional manner by locals with tremendous knowledge about indigenous ingredients, flavours, giving GO DESi products an unparalleled authenticity.
GO DESi products are manufactured at micro units set up at the farm gate with the aim of increasing the farmers share in the retail value chain. More than 30% of what consumers pay, go back to the micro units and the rural community generating long term sustainable livelihood.
Ingredients that you can understand
We strongly believe in a clean label, our guiding principle is if you should not need a PhD to understand the Ingredients.
Our products have no preservatives, added colour or flavour.
Our products are as is, we take great pride and effort in ensuring that the traditional recipe and know how is not sacrificed for large scale production.
We started GO DESi with the aim of increasing the share of the rural economy in the consumer boom that we are witnessing.
Our units are based in rural areas, providing long term sustainable employment.

HEALTHY || ETHICAL || LOCAL
GO DESi began to take shape while reeling off memories on the winding paths of northern Karnataka,India. In fact, GO DESi has always been in our mind, in a collective mind that connects generations through the childhood memories of the many intertwined scents in mom’s kitchen.
Coming down from the benevolent mountains of Western Ghats, we crossed a misty valley where all nature seemed to be saturated with water. The monsoon winds were hitting the trees hard and we were soaked by a continuous stream pouring straight onto our backs and into our trekking boots.
We took shelter from the monsoon in the first tea shop that came our way and we gulped a cup of the blissful hot potion while looking at the distant farms clouded by the constant rain curtain. Then and there it was our first contact with Malnad, its magic farms, its unique foods and the very hospitable local farmers, surprised to see two lost trekkers in their quiet little village. Despite being lost, we found purpose. This was the start of GO DESi & our DESi products…
With GO DESi products we are trying to create a range of traditional products which builds on the local, regional knowledge of ingredients & flavours. We ensure that the products are “AS IS” i.e. we tinker very little with the recipe and the methodology ensuring you get the most authentic product.
Our products are also made as near the farm gate as possible ensuring that a large chunk of what you pay goes back to the rural community.
The combination of Health, authenticity and traditional taste makes GO DESi products special.
We had started GO DESi as a social enterprise, a slingshot for the rural community where we are present to a path to economic and social well being. The best part of the experience undoubtedly is to see the on-ground impact we have created by selling our products.
In the short duration of our journey, we have been able to create 40 direct jobs in rural areas for the most disadvantaged sections of the rural community.
