What are the origins of Tropical Sun?
Tropical Sun was founded in 1996 to bring the taste of home to the UK's thriving ethnic communities and the flavours of the world to the people of the UK. A fully independent, British family-run organisation, our offering was initially primarily Caribbean and African. Over the years, it has expanded to include foods from other sunshine regions such as South East Asia, USA and the Mediterranean.
For a brief history of the company, we recommend reading Our Story.
