Founder & CEO
Aishwarya is the founder and CEO of Brightland, the AAPI-founded, California-made pantry essentials brand known for making the freshest, highest-quality olive oils, honeys, and vinegars on the market. The idea for Brightland was sparked when Aishwarya and her partner began cooking more meals at home and found themselves suffering from an uncomfortable stomachache after every meal. After identifying the cause of their gastrointestinal woes as olive oil, Aishwarya threw herself into learning as much as she could about olive oil and in 2018, she turned her passion into a business. Since then, Brightland has expanded its offerings to include infused olive oils, naturally fermented vinegars, and consciously crafted honeys. Aishwarya was born in India, grew up in Texas, and now lives in LA with her husband and dogs, Crosby and Madison.
