Our Beginning

What started out as a sideline project has blossomed into a market-leading retail behemoth, due in large part to word-of-mouth referrals and recommendations from shoppers and customers alike.

Spotting a gap in the market, we embarked on quest to share the best of what Sri Lankan gastronomy had to offer with our adopted home country. Drawing on our Sri Lankan heritage and our 3 decades-old roots in NZ, we have grown the business with the help of our passionate, customer-centric team.

In a world where large corporations own the lion’s share of the market, we are proud to be a family-run business, fusing together passion for our customers in particular and retail in general.

What we offer

Our commitment to excellence in customer service extends far beyond the groceries themselves: we have developed an extensive network of reputable retailers and shopping channels across New Zealand to ensure that customers all over the country are able to enjoy the very best of what Sri Lankan cuisine has to offer in retail stores throughout the country.

We also have an easy-to-use and efficient online store, offering the ultimate in hassle-free shopping. It includes exciting specials, our broad product ranges and tasty recipes with delivery straight to your door thanks to our national postal coverage.

If you are wanting the full brick-and-mortar shopping experience, we’d be pleased to welcome you to our central Auckland store, ideally placed on Mt Roskill’s Dominion Road for visitors from all over the region. We are on hand to offer advice, recommendations and tips on how to bring Sri Lankan cooking to your dinner table.

We are proud to be New Zealand’s exclusive distributor for the majority of Sri Lanka’s major food brands.
