Prairie Spicy Foods - Authentic East Indian Cuisine

Rubina Surtie, owner of Prairie Spicy Foods, is delighted to introduce to the public "Rubina's" line of sauces, dips and marinades.  The development of her product was strongly influenced by her childhood memories of helping the family create tasty, authentic East Indian cuisine.  Now with the hectic lifestyle of raising four kids, Rubina felt a need to find a way to cut down on time spent in the kitchen preparing elaborate meals without losing the quality and authenticity of a rich East Indian heritage. 

A new company in the food industry, Rubina approached the Food Centre in 2007 for assistance in commercializing her East Indian sauces.  The Food Centre was able to assist in fine tuning her recipes, providing guidance in packaging and labelling and interim processing at its federally inspected facility.  Now in 2009, Rubina is finding success in the marketplace.  Her products are sold in Sobey's, a leading national grocery retailer and food distributor in Canada, and was praised in an article about Grocery Innovations (2008) as being "the best food tried' at the show.

Rich with flavour, Rubina's line of sauces are simple to use and very versatile.  They come in 3 delicious dips/marinades and 3 cook-in sauces.  Check out Prairie Spicy Foods' website at
