AB World Foods is an international branded business, famous for flavour. With approximately 700 employees and c£160m turnover, we work across eight geographical locations, or hubs, as we like to call them.

We are borne of pioneers, of people who inspire us. People like L.G. Pathak, who arrived in the UK in 1957 with just £5 to his name and started a family company that became the reason the UK loves curry: Patak's.

In the 1970s, G Costa, driven by the same entrepreneurial spirit, discovered there was nothing in the shops to help British people recreate the authentic taste of Asian food at home. So an adventurous team headed out to the Far East, bringing back the most authentic, exciting flavours they could. And with that, the Blue Dragon brand was born. Fast forward to 2007 and another inspiration appeared in the form of Levi Roots, the man who slayed the Dragon's Den on BBC with just a bottle of his Reggae Reggae sauce and a guitar.
