Curry and spice

Curry & Spice produces authentic Indian ready meals.

The business was established by Shoba Thyarala in 2011, initially providing cookery classes. These classes were not just about learning the art of new cuisine, but they also emphasized the importance of cooking a meal at home for people who have various food allergies and food intolerances. Such was the popularity of these classes and the dishes prepared, that I decided to set up Curry & Spice producing homemade healthy Indian meals. All Curry & Spice meals are homemade using natural ingredients and Indian spices, and are therefore suitable for consumers with a range of food intolerances. All curries are gluten free, with a choice of vegetarian, vegan and halal meal options.

Curry & Spice supplies prepared Authentic Indian homemade meals to supermarkets and other retail food stores in and around counties Galway, Mayo, Roscommon and Westmeath. Currently, Curry and Spice supplies around 750 units a week. 

"Being a part of the Food Academy has given me the opportunity to spread my wings to more stores in Galway, Mayo, Athlone and Roscommon. As the production volume doubled, Curry and Spice had to employ 2 more staff to meet demand.

As a small producer, Food Academy has been a great support in expanding my business. I am soon planning to supply to as many stores as possible in Ireland."
