A British company that sells traditional English food to ex-pats abroad has started exporting curry – to INDIA.
British Corner Shop, in Iron Acton, South Glos., sells over 800 different items, from Marmite to tea bags to all corners of the world.
But Mark Callaghan said they have recently experienced an increase in demand from home-sick Brits for spicy curries, particularly from Asia.
”We have started getting orders from India for a number of curry-related products,” he said.
“The most popular of these are Fray Bentos chicken curry pies. Heinz Big Eat chicken and vegetable curries are also selling particularly well, as are curried flavoured Pot Noodles.
”We have also shipped curry sauces produced by UK brands including Sharwoods, Patak’s, Bombay Authentics and Loyd Grossman to people who are living and working in India.”
