Our range of snacks began in the 1990’s, when our founder began cooking up homemade snacks and short-eats to traditional Sri Lankan recipes to give friends and family a taste of home. Soon, unable to keep up with the growing demand, we opened our first servery and here we are today as one of the UK’s largest Sri Lankan and South Indian food manufacturers!
