"Without the good advice and mentoring from our Business Advisor we wouldn’t have managed to get our business started. We’ve grown from a small team producing a handful of pakora products, to become the leading Scottish supplier of authentic Indian cuisine, snacks and savouries, employing 42 people."

"We were linked with one of the Business Gateway advisers to talk about how they could support our desire to increase capacity. We were delighted to be approved for an ‘AMBITION to Grow’ grant which facilitated the purchase of specialised kit to help both grow the company and safeguard jobs in the local community"
