Get to know our beginning, the people behind our great products, and what we strive for as a company.
How it all started
Mom always dreamed of sharing great tasting Indian food with everyone. As a dietitian, she consulted for some big names in the industry…she knew she could do it better.
One day, Mom & Dad quit their jobs to start making samosas. “We only make dishes we’d eat at home everyday, that’s why we use only the best, all natural ingredients; it just makes for better tasting food” – Anis Jiwani (aka Mom)
The Story of Chef Bombay
It all started with samosas in a tiny 3000 square foot plant in Sherwood Park, AB. In 2000 no one really knew what samosas were, but once they tried ours they were hooked. We quickly expanded then expanded again.
Now, we are in a 45,000 sqft plant with a growing line up of Indian inspired dishes available across North America. We put in all the hard work so all you have to do is enjoy. Our family ensures you enjoy every bite.
All our products are fully prepared in our own Alberta based facility. All our dishes go from raw ingredients to frozen product as soon as they're cooked, to seal in the freshness of every dish.
Our fully automated facility has with the highest quality and food safety standards. Our in-house quality managers monitor every single step of the manufacturing process – from the moment raw ingredients enter the plant to the final product.
Doing Our Part
We continuously strive to find ways to improve the world around us. Our family’s values are present every step of the way, with integrity and transparency at the core of everything we do. Giving back to the community has always played a huge role in the way we do business. Whether its through our support of local foods banks and fundraisers or the Aga Khan Foundation and the
annual World Partnership Walks that that raises funds to end global poverty (by supporting meaningful projects identified and implemented by local communities), we make sure we are giving back every step of the way. By sourcing only high quality, natural ingredients, simplifying the supply chain, and employing environmentally friendly production practices, we work to mitigate our environmental impact.
