Following a redesign of its packaging, and having secured listing across all the major national and independent retailers, 2013 is a year of investment and growth in the brand’s portfolio.

Harry Dulai, Commercial Director at Surya Rice comments on the plans: “Laila is one of the top three brands in the UK, and we have been delighted to see an organic year on year growth. We are investing heavily in the brand this year, starting with our core audience of Asian consumers. TV is one of the best routes to market and associating the brand with both a cookery show and celebrities, hits right at the psyche of our customer and so will give us brand recognition and brand loyalty as we extend this relationship further into grass roots activity.”
