About Us

UNCLE JOSE - Mr. Jose Lukose Kottukapally was born in a newly independent India on 20th June 1949 in small town of Muttuchira in Kottayam, Kerala.

His father Mr Lukose John was a farmer and an Ayurvedic practitioner, very closely bound to nature and its bounty. Looking up to his father he chose an indigenous way of living even as he moved out of his home town in 1974 to explore, setup and expand his business in mechanical contracting. For 21 years since then he executed various projects with BPCL, HPCL, ONGC, BHEL, BHPV.

 As the world prepared for the new millennium, he decided to travel back to his roots and use his entrepreneurial experience and the inherited ancestral knowledge to share the wisdom of the past century with the new millennial generation.

 He started his 1st 'Ruchi Kerala Store' in the year 2000. He sourced a majority of his products, directly from the farms of kerala. 40 yrs since, there's been no looking back. Over the years his knowledge of organic and indigenous Kerala produce, along with its many benefits have garnered him a committed customer base or rather fan following. He is accredited with introducing the city audience, Malayalis, Non-Malayalis and the Millenials to the most authentic and native Kerala products. From tutoring the people about the benefits of Nendrakaya and recipes of Kappa, to how to make an earthenware durable before using for cooking, and educating them about the numerous spices of Kerala, their usage and benefits in home remedies for minor ailments, the lessons one learns from each visit to Uncle Jose are numerous and for a lifetime. An intellectual, environmentalist and marathoner at the grand age of 71, Uncle Jose enlightens every visitor with his pearls of wisdom on topics ranging from politics, cuisine, medicine and current affairs. An amazing feat that led to him meeting the president of India and also being featured in prominent Newspapers Times of India and Matrubhumi.

 Simply why his customers after one visit became his friends who came back with time to chat and discover something new that he got each time from Kerala. With time his name became so synonymous with his store that it came to be known as Jose Uncle or Jose Chetan's store giving rise to the decision to rebrand it as "Uncle Jose".

 Join us as we take this great legacy forward.
