Neelas Home Ltd has started its journey in 2009 as a sole operation and subsequently became a private limited company on 2011.
From the beginning, Neelas Home Ltd has grown doubly, year-on-year – introducing best in class products from south east Asia with a high level of after sales customer care.
With the promise of bringing the experience of a real curry taste into Britain, Neelas Home Ltd has gradually enlarged its portfolio by expanding into snacks, appetisers and culinary enhancers over the years.
Today, the company is one of the top distributors for Bangladeshi food products and its director was recently recognised as ‘Best Business Woman Entrepreneur of the Year’ with an award presented by the former British Prime Minister, David Cameron, at the British Bangladeshi Business Award 2015.
