GT – How big is KTC in UK turnover and staff numbers? How fast is it growing? Do you export to other countries? Our oils and fats are generally refined in the UK and blended and processed by us in Wednesbury and Liverpool. We develop all our own products with the help of the refiners and Leatherhead Food International.

I’d like to see us continue to use our vegetable oils and fats as our bread and butter – forgive the pun! – while expanding further in the exciting arena of “New Continental Foods” and bringing in more profits from both areas. I’m delighted to see the increasing shelf space afforded to us by the multiples for these new KTC lines. It’s quite simple: we offer personal attention, competitive prices and have 700 products to choose from.


GT – Where are your other retail products and your speciality products made? Do you make these products in your own factories, or do you act as importers and distributors for them? GT – The ‘corporate’ suppliers largely dominate the UK retail oils and fats market. What are the benefits to customers of dealing with an independent supplier like KTC? GT – What standards do you work to? Have you won any awards for innovation, exports or other achievement?

I wrote about the many Hair Oils available some weeks ago, and the best Hair Oils for growth. Well I have been experimenting with a few new hair oils to discover the best hair oil for our hair (that is myself and my baby girl). GT – You’re currently involved with South Asian and Caribbean foods. Are you looking at importing foods from any other countries?

The split between the major multiples and the wholesalers and smaller retail outlets is 2:1 in favour of the independent wholesalers and retailers, but the multiple business’s contribution has grown over 50% since January 2008. My brief is to control and oversee our profitable sales to all the market sectors we operate in. We are well represented in the Ethnic sector and have specialist operators in foodservice, bakery and ingredients, as well as sales agents helping us across the board. Pure, undiluted Almond Oil is the best for my hair and my daughter’s hair. I have only good things to say about this amazing hair oil. It is so good that I have had to buy 2 more bottles immediately, just so I don’t run out.

GT – What do you see as the major trends in speciality ethnic foods? How are you responding to these trends? Mr Jernail Singh Khera founded KTC in 1973. The company originally began trading in cosmetic oils, as used in the Asian community for health and beauty purposes. Originally a partnership operating as Khera Trading Co, it became a limited company and the name changed to include the “edibles” for impact, in 1979.


It is so good for our hair. I have noticed a massive growth in our hair, especially my daughter’s, since we started using it. GT – What is your brief as Sales Director? How are you organised in terms of sales to the different sectors? This product is THE TRUTH! I can’t see myself using any other kind of oil. I have used them all, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil; and this Almond Oil is the best oil by far. I love it. My natural hair has had a full transformation. I am still transitioning, but I can see my hair fully transitioned in about 3 months. GT – Which of your products have crossed over from being bought purely by the ethnic community to being bought by Brits as part of their cooking repertoire, and which ones have the potential to do so? Have you modified any of your products’ recipes to appeal to UK mainstream tastes?

GT – Of your retail products, what proportion of sales is retailer private label and what proportion is branded? Do you have capacity to take on more retailer private label, and if so what kind of products?The current owners of the business are the Khera family and myself, Mike Baldrey. Although I have a minority shareholding, it is significant. We have many of the most respected brands in the ethnic food industry, KTC, Sea Isle, Supermalt and Ashoka, to mention just four; we are always competitively priced and generally give an excellent all-round service. Quality has always been a top priority. Our newest products are Smoothies, Peri Peri sauces and a new Sea Isle Very Hot Pepper Sauce, which will blow your head off! They were launched in April, so it’s too early to tell how they’re selling just yet, but Smoothies in particular look like a real winner. Let’s hope we have a good summer. I have used quite a few already, but I was not 100% sold on any until I tried this KTC Pure Almond Oil. ALMOND OIL AS COOKING OIL This oil was extracted from sweet almonds, it is quite clear, pale yellow, low viscosity and mild pure flavor, so it comes as high-quality edible oil used. It is suitable for fresh salads, fruit salads, sauces and sweet dishes, also for frying or for fondue. In Indian cuisine, it is considered a “staple”.
