About Us

Our Story

Red Rickshaw is the home of hard-to-find ingredients, specialising in world foods and produce. We empower cooks to create authentic cuisines from around the globe with premium quality, fresh and seasonal ingredients. 

Jyoti Patel, our founder, started Red Rickshaw due to her own struggle finding quality Indian ingredients in the UK. With a desire to cook the meals from her childhood for her own family, Red Rickshaw was born. Now, Red Rickshaw’s mission is to make hard-to-find ingredients from different cultures, cuisines and countries easy to source; serving you a range of culinary needs. From home cooks to Michelin starred restaurants, we are passionate about ensuring everyone has access to outstanding flavour and produce. Delivered to your door, it’s never been easier to find fresh ingredients. 

“I wanted to be able to show my children the food I was brought up with so that they felt connected to their own culture in a way that I was. Red Rickshaw is now the home of hard-to-find ingredients so that anyone can try it!” - Jyoti Patel

Our Promise To You

We want to inspire adventure through cooking, sourcing authentic and breathtaking ingredients that you’ve never tasted before, and as a young business, we are committed to sustainable practices and are constantly aiming to evolve.

We want to help the food industry and foodies like you to embrace the world’s biodiversity. By sourcing foods from around the world we can guarantee seasonal ingredients that have a lower environmental impact than other mass produced and over-farmed crops. If you have any queries, we’d love to hear from you! Get in touch at hello@redrickshaw.com.

Pre-prepared and pre-measured, FeastBox takes the stress out of cooking new and exciting meals while still being packed with the same Red Rickshaw ingredients that we send to Michelin starred restaurants.
