Welcome to Express Cuisine and Halal Kitchen

From Retailers to Manufacturers… Fuel to Food…

In the 90’s, the Patel Brothers had a large number of independent Petrol Service Stations, they told the sandwich supplier to their sites not to supply any Pork or Ham based products due to their religious beliefs.

The sandwich supplier decided not to supply them, the Patel Brothers employed a couple of staff to produce sandwiches in their then head office kitchen to supply to their sites. Along the way other retailers were impressed by the strong position and determination of the Patel Brothers and decided to take products in their outlets.

Slowly but surely the business grew with word of mouth being the most valuable advertising tool and one van has now become a fleet of vans touring the North West, Yorkshire and Central Midlands.

That staff kitchen also grew to a fully accredited by STS (Support Training Services) factory and today Express Cuisine Ltd is based in Bolton, UK, employing over 50 staff we are Manufacturers and Distributors of Halal chilled foods.

The market which the Patel Brothers have created in serving Halal chilled food on the go, no one was serving. The demand within the Muslim community has always been there, however they were never being served or being offered an alternative to the veg filled chilled food to go lines especially Sandwiches.

A study in 2013 found there are 6 million people who buy Halal meat in the UK, office for national statistics in 2013 showed there are around 3.5 million Muslims in the UK.

At Express Cuisine we pride ourselves in the authentic flavours, variety and quality of products we produce, not just using the “Halal” factor as a unique edge but incorporating all these qualities to target the wider market.
