Chiman's was founded in 1990 by Chimanlal Agarwal. Chiman, originally from Bombay, settled in the South-West of England in Barnstaple, Devon, where he bought a shop to sell natural foods to the local community. While in the shop, he started blending spices together in small sachets and sold them with recipes for his own Indian meals printed on the back. The packs were an instant hit - they allowed people to create authentic Indian dishes easily and conveniently. Chiman eventually gave up the shop to devote himself to Chiman's Spice Blends. Chiman's children, Sally and Danny Agarwal now run the business and they share their father's commitment to creating amazing spice blends to help people make their own authentic Indian dishes with ease.
