About Nevedan Nempe – The Founder of Areca Tea

Nivedan Nempe, the creator of Areca Tea was born in the southern part of India, in a village called Mandagadde, located in the district of Shivamogga, Karnataka. He did his schooling from the Govt. Primary and High School of Mandagadde and pursued a Bachelors degree in Pharmacy from the National College of Pharmacy in Shivamogga.

Impressed by a paper which he presented at the International Pharma Conference at Gulbarga, The Swinburne University of Technology for higher education in Goods Manufacturing and Management Technology opened its doors for him for higher studies. After having completed his post-graduation at the Swinburne, his job as a Business Development Consultant took him across Australia, New Zealand, Hong-Kong, Bangkok and Singapore. Nivedan also had a stint as a consultant in Dubai but the love for his motherland and an ambition to serve his country brought him back to India and to the village where he was born.

Nivedan started a company called Mystic Aromatics and began manufacturing recycled paper air fresheners alongside doing agricultural product developments. His aim was to help the agricultural community, mainly the farmers produce to be put to use in different ways apart from the conventional consumption of the same. One such produce that attracted Nivedan’s attention was Areca Nut.

Farmers in the region of the Malenadu where Nivedan was born, depend on Areca Nut for their livelihoods. As per the statistics that he collected, over 5 lakh families were dependent upon Areca Nut cultivation and this triggered the thought of an alternate value added product development. As a pharmacist, Nivedan started working on the photo-chemistry of Areca Nut and sent it to various labs for chemical identifications. In the meanwhile, he collected research papers published on Areca and found that it contains aqueous tannins and many useful chemicals such as anti-oxidants, Proline (Amino Acids) and digestive enzyme enhancing agents. With all the information he had gathered he started working on a new product. Extracting tannins from Areca and aided by his research, Nivedan introduced a new product to the world of tea lovers – Areca Tea. The modernization took 3 to 4 months and Areca Tea Bags went out to the market. He thanks the media for helping Areca Tea gain popularity and taking it to the international level

The AITMC (All India Technical Management Council) under ‘Make in India Excellence Award’ recognized his research and awarded Areca Tea as ‘Innovative Product of the Year’ for 2014-15. With an FSSAI Certificate for production of Areca Tea Nivedan has also received Intellectual Property Rights from the Patenting Authority.

The love for his nation urges him to work harder everyday so that he can give something back to the land where he was born. A fact that Delegates from China visited him to discuss value added product development from Areca has made him feel proud that he has made people sit up and notice this development made in India. He encourages students to do the same too.

Nivedan is now working on innovate more by-products of Areca Nut, to further enhance the farmers to grow this crop economically. His dream is to present to the world an array of creations which upholds Indian heritage.

    Just tasted Area Tea for the first time from your stall at Bengaluru Lalbagh botanical garden flower show. Its amazing! I come from a place in central Kerala full of areca trees and plantations. We have plenty of produce that gets wasted or gets sold for cheap price. Is there a way I can plan to help farmers in my area using this opportunity? Would like to talk/meet and understand more. I have bought a pack of tea bags already that I am gonna share with my colleagues at work. You have made my day. Thank you!

    I am just re located to Bangalore recent past had an chance to taste Areca Tea at Giri Nagar fast food centre. I really don’t know the product features and just enjoyed from day one. Fortunately, the third day I was interviewed by Mr Nevedhan and his team mates to get customer feedback. Un doubtedly, I felt greate about this Tea. Latter, as I knew Areca product got an Innovative product of the year 2015 under the Make in India programme.

    I Wish Mr Niivedan Nempe and his team to achieve greater peaks in the Journey and become inspiration to many more youngsters to innovate ample number of products to support community.

    Thank you and all the very best …..!!!!!!

    To be frank i was having the acidity problem.. once i started consuming the Areca tea the acidity problem has reduced a lot. surprisingly i am not taking any medicine for acidity problem i have, ARECA TEA itself is the medicine for my acidity problem. I would like to thank and Congratulate Mr.Nivedan Nempe for his great invention.
