about holy cow!


Our mum taught Indian cooking around Oxfordshire for years. Her simple home-cooked recipes wowed her students too, who pleaded with her to bottle her unique flavours. And Holy Cow! was born, in the summer of ‘99.

Our products were developed in our home kitchen by our genuine Indian mum, using recipes that have passed down generations. And that is why our food has layers of flavour (and then a kick of heat, of course)

After years of selling our sauces to local independent delis and garden centres up and down the country, we eventually broke into the supermarkets in the UK with our first big contract with Asda in 2009. We haven’t looked back since…


We now produce a range of sauces, marinades, curry sauces, curries, and snacks. We have just launched our innovative Indian street food range.

Until 2009, the range was manufactured in our facility in Witney, lovingly known as ‘The Farm’, but we very quickly out-grew it. We now produce the range in a larger factory, and have more people working just as hard to ensure every bottle is exactly the way it should be.

We’re faithful to our roots of cooking food home-style. We even make our factory cook our curry sauces mirroring how we cook them in our kitchen, much to their annoyance! What can we say… if the delicate layers of flavour don’t come out right, mum will slap us silly.
