THE BRAND

EAST END FOODS’

SPICES

East End Foods, founded in 1972, has grown to be one of the largest importers, sellers and distributors of Asian foods in the United Kingdom and has a yearly turnover in excess of £180m. The vast majority of their business has historically been from the UK’s large South Asian community, but when we began working with their marketing team the aim was to develop a new communications strategy and to reposition their corporate image so as to attract consumers from other backgrounds, thus increasing their revenue and market share. However, they also wanted to retain the strong reputation they had built over the decades as being the best suppliers of pure and authentic Asian foods and ingredients, which has traditionally appealed to families missing food from ‘back home’.
