Distinguished Beginnings and Brighter Futures
The humble beginnings of Raja Foods originated as the procurement division for a large chain of Indian grocery stores. In early 1990, Raja experienced significant growth to the degree that we began our own company. Since that historic decision, Raja has grown into a 60,000 square foot warehouse with business surpassing the $140 million mark. We’ve been growing at a 25% annual rate since that time.
Raja imports food products such as rice, spices, and mango juice from such exotic locales such as England, Spain, India, Pakistan, China and Australia. These products are received in our warehouse in Skokie, Illinois and then distributed across the United States to such carriers as K-mart and Dominick’s grocery stores, Indian ethnic stores, and a collection of distributors and wholesalers.
The effectiveness of Raja’s distribution network has enabled us to use that network to sell our own brands, including Patel’s and SWAD. Companies experiencing this level of growth always have plans for the future, and Raja is no different. The future of Raja Foods is as bright as the Indian sun.
