UK firm to make Naans for IndiansApril 6th, 2011 - 2:40 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr. 6 (ANI): British firm Honeytop Speciality Foods has revealed that it has spent three million pounds on a factory in India, where it plans to make naans, a leavened, oven-baked flatbread.
A Daily Express report quoted David Laurence, the CEO of the firm’s headquarters in Dunstable, Bedfordshire, as saying: “It’s the bakery equivalent of taking coals to Newcastle but we believe our naan bread is so good they will find a market with Indian consumers.”
Meanwhile, another firm, British Corner Shop, which sells sauces made by UK brands such as Sharwoods, Patak’s and Loyd Grossman, plans to open ex-pat stores in India.
Marks and Spencer have just announced that they will be returning to French high streets.
Scottish firm Cosmo caused a sensation in 2003 when they began selling pizza in Italy and now export up to half a million per year. (ANI)
