Making chilled and frozen ready meals for the retail and foodservice sector all of our products are cooked in small batches using artisan methods that have been developed from when Laila first started the business in her kitchen 30 years ago.”
In a successful night for the manufacturer, Laila’s Fine Foods was also rated Highly Commended in the Frozen Ready Meal category for their Iceland Indian Empire Pie with Managing Director, Laila Remtulla commenting, “We are delighted to have won a Quality Food Award. Quality is the most important factor that we strive to ensure when meals leave our factory and feedback from our customers is extremely positive. We are glad the judges thought so too.”
The awards recognise the increasing demand for quality own-label and branded ranges at affordable prices in the retail and catering channels.
