It’s National Curry week and we wanted to tell you a little bit about a new customer of ours….a start up food company called Gourmosa who have created a range of mouthwatering snacks, packed full of exotic flavours.
Gourmosa have created a range of mouthwatering snacks, packed full of exotic flavours, taking their Asian heritage as inspiration each recipe contains heady aromas of secret spice mixes, tailored to complement their filling with ‘zingy’ herbs for a burst of freshness. They have taken traditional snacks from the subcontinent and revamped them with new techniques and super foods while maintaining authentic flavours. The range consists of three flavours of samosas, samosa pies, samosa pots and vegetarian bean chaats ( click here to see the full delicious range).
As a start-up company Gourmosa were finding it incredibly difficult to source a supplier that could provide short-run bespoke cartons for their range of snacks. They were on the verge of presenting to food buyers in the retail sector as well as exhibiting at the lunch! exhibition in London. Luckily they had the foresight to come to the Packaging Innovations Show at Olympia, where they came onto our stand with a design brief. For the team at Alexir this was definitely a new experience on the stand, having been used to taking litho print enquiries; suddenly the digital world opened up a new world of fast turnaround order-taking at an exhibition. It was going to be a tight deadline, given that their show was a few days away and artwork had to be approved.
The Gourmosa team had worked hard behind the scenes, preparing thousands of samples of their Chaat, Samosas, Samosa Pies and Samosa Pots in delicious flavours for buyers to try. The hard work paid off, with all of their products receiving extremely positive feedback from major brands in the food industry, who commented on the uniqueness of all of their products, as well as their amazing taste.
Given their success at the show we are sure the Gourmosa range will be stocked soon and we will be able to try these snacks ourselves.
