Upma Kapoor, the founder of Teal & Terra, an emerging organic beauty start-up, was felicitated with the Priyadarshni Award 2019 at the India-Afghanistan International Trade and Investment Conference, organized by the FIWE (Federation of Indian Women Entrepreneurs).
Ms Kapoor has received this award for her excellent work for Teal & Terra which has exhibited an outstanding success within the short period of two years and her role for empowering women.

Speaking about this, Ms Upma Kapoor said, “It is indeed an honor for me to receive this award. It is a reaffirmation that my efforts in my line of work are being recognized and supported by a global body. It is also an encouragement for me to direct my efforts at bettering what I do and contribute to the women and society at large. My endeavor is to change the Indian Organic beauty landscape by using natural ingredients and the age-old principles of Ayurveda. My purpose is to provide a trustworthy brand for Skin and Haircare.”
