“We only make dishes we’d eat at home everyday. That’s why we use only the best ingredients, nothing artificial and no preservatives. It just makes for better tasting food.” – Anis Jiwani, Co-founder
In 1999, based squarely on a food most had never even heard of at the time, Noorudin and Anis Jiwani decided to take a cultural food icon – the samosa – and make it mainstream.
It all started within a tiny 3000 square foot plant in Sherwood park, Alberta. Anis, a dietitian, envisioned the Chef Bombay brand being the number one supplier for high quality, Indian food. To achieve this all products are fully prepared in their plant, and frozen within hours of being cooking to seal in
its freshness and quality without the need of adding undesirable additives or preservatives.
Today, in a much larger, Alberta based facility, their full line of products range from Indian appetizers, including samosas and pakoras to entrées such as Butter Chicken and Chicken Tikka Masala. Aliya’s Foods continues to be North America’s largest supplier of samosas. Their goal is to be a leader in providing mainstream Indian
as well as Indian fusion prepared appetizers and entrées to keep up with the growing market demand for great quality.
