The word ‘Maharani’ is Sanskrit and Urdu for queen. Maharani food and drinks is a family run establishment from the last 25 years. The company was incorporated by the Joshi family in the U.K.

The company was the first to introduce paneer (A Soft Indian Cheese), which, is not only one of the most popular Indian dishes but is also widely used in Persian and South Asian cooking as well as in some parts of Middle East. The idea behind introducing the product was that it was not available at all in the U.K. So we introduced ‘Maharani paneer’. The company became the first to manufacture and distribute paneer in the UK and Europe.

The paneer business witnessed a gradual increase in productivity and competition as the market began to mature. Maharani Foods are pioneers of the industry and its product quality and its supreme packing service has helped maintain its reputation as a brand leader. Maharani Food and Drinks Ltd. are wholesalers and distributors of a wide variety of quality dairy products.
