HerZindagi is dedicated to recognising female entrepreneurs in ways that go beyond "empowerment" with this project.

    About Ruchi Mathur

    Sharing her journey, Mathur said, “I started my career as a social science teacher and was always very much concerned about the use of harmful chemicals used in the food processing industry. Thus always kept on avoiding the snacks available on the shelf.”

    On how she picked up pickle, she said, “Travelling with kids was a very frequent holiday ritual so there was always a great demand of homemade snacks, pickles, ladoos etc. So I started experimenting in my kitchen to try and make snacks that are both healthy and tasty. My experiments with food and new recipes started right after my marriage and the appreciation and support from my family and friends inspired me to come up with my brand DIVINE BITE.”

    Mathur also faced many challenges as she was on her way to turn her career. “Since I was never a tech savy person it was very difficult for me to have an upper hand in digital marketing and for our content to find its way on social media platforms.”

    Another big challenge Mathur faced was social media. “One of my biggest challenges in social media, that I struggled with for a while, is getting followers to actually interact. Although I had grown my accounts and had plenty of followers, most of the time I didn’t feel as though they were as involved as I wanted them to be. More and more, I find that people spend less time liking and commenting on posts, and instead just view them and move on,” she said.
