Co-founders Geeta & Reena (from left to right) are passionate about breaking food barriers through the provision of extremely tasty, high quality, authentic Indian produce; that is free-from the 14 major food allergens. We have roped in a team of loyal friends & family to help us spread the word at various events up & down the country. In 2017, we were finalists of the Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Awards, which is where we discovered the team at Crowdfunder.co.uk - thanks guys!

Green Sisters is about us; two sisters who are mad about food and love to share! 

Our journey began long before we incorporated in 2016 where for many years, as a family, we found it exceptionally challenging to eat a single meal together, that met all of our family's dietary needs. Social gatherings posed further challenges. 

After speaking with others, it dawned on us that this challenge was not unique to us. In a variety of scenarios, at home or away, many people continue to miss out on amazing, great tasting food, for the simple fact that their diet restricts or limits them in some way. Friends and family even struggle to cater for loved ones! 

Being frustrated by these limitations and constantly having to miss out, we made it our business to bring back to the table the food that we love to share.

We believe education plays an important role in empowering and equipping individuals with the right know-how, skills and confidence to be able to rustle up meals or dishes to suit the needs of everyone around the table. Ultimately promoting inclusion through food and breaking down social barriers created by dietary needs or preferences. 

More recently we have developed a range of spice pots with recipes and vlogs to accompany these, making it simple to recreate our authentic recipes to share.

All of these products will leave you feeling nourished & inspired. All of this and a life that’s #freefromcompromise.

"Really delicious samosas - delivery was easy and prompt, and the samosas were absolutely delicious - among the best samosas I've ever had, which is incredible considering they are free of all 14 allergens... why aren't all samosas like this? Bought partly as a present for two of my GF friends, who were so thrilled as they hadn't had samosas in years. Would highly recommend!!!" - ALEXANDRA EVANS (CO FOUNDER OF EATSAFE APP)

"What a treat, not eaten samosas since coeliac diagnosis. Great product. Just what the #glutenfree community needs, delicious savoury snacks. #WalesGFShow." - MAIRE KEVIN CLEARY

"Fantastic yummy samosas; crispy and light with yummy hot vegetables inside " - MAX MEL

"I had some gluten free samosas and the freezer pack delivered. They are delicious! Had definitely missed these since being diagnosed as Coeliac, but no longer! Will be ordering more soon." -BECKY THOMAS

"Hi there. I just had some of your lovely samosas and chick peas at the Liverpool Viva Vegan Festival. They were gorgeous! So hard to find vegan and gluten free food. Thanks for the nice chat too. Cheers" - BARBARA SMITH

"Thanks for supplying such great food for my party on Saturday night. My guests told me how much they loved the food, I also thought it was delicious. My friends who are gluten free or veggie also enjoyed eating the same as everyone else. The service you gave was friendly and professional from start to finish. Thank you. C" - CAROL FRYER

Not able to contribute but like what we are doing? You can spread the word and shout about us on Instagram (greensisters3free), twitter (@greensisters3f) and Facebook (greensisters3free), whatsapp it to your friends, email it to your colleagues and talk about it your family. And feel free to get in touch, or come say hello, grab a samosa and chai with us at one of our next event (see website for where to find us next at www.greensisters.co.uk) to give us a high five!


You will receive your reward after successful completion of the Crowdfunding campaign. We will keep you updated. As our chutneys, spice pots, packaging will be going to print, this will depend on lead times and can take 3-4 months. We know you can’t wait to get your hand on them so we’ll try to get them to you as soon as possible!

Reaching the 5K stretch target will enable us to invest in equipment and machinery to further improve access and increase production of the range. We have a number of pieces of equipment in mind, which will enable us to produce more.

Since our supply chain requires frozen dispatch we would like to look at better options for delivery and this would enable this.

Reaching better economies of scale will achieve cost efficiencies, enabling us to re-invest in product development and pass on cost savings, where possible.
