Our Story


Nana’s Kitchen began as a small restaurant producing delicious family style ethnic meals in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.

Founders, NASIM AND SHELINA, created a restaurant that was well known for wonderful aromas, lots of laughter, and for providing job opportunities to new Canadian women.

By 2000, take-away orders for their popular pastry items were surpassing the restaurant’s capacity, and Nana’s Kitchen production facility was born. With that step came sales to Grocery Retail and Food Service throughout North America.

Fueled by a strong vision to produce to the highest standards, Nanas Kitchen made a passionate commitment to HACCP certification and opened their state of the art, CFIA inspected facility which received British Retailer Consortium’s (BRC) Global Standard for Food Safety.

You’ll be pleased to know that several of the original restaurant staff have grown to become managers in our production facility and administration offices. The legacy of providing a place for women to work still remains very important to the Founders. Nana’s Kitchen continues to be a place where daily laughter and wonderful aromas surround!

Today, we produce flavorful foods influenced by global taste profiles and happy memories. R&D for our new product development begins with the question: “What was a special meal at your Nanas Kitchen?”

From Samosas to Pub-style meat pockets and dessert mini pies, we embrace Convenient Comfort Foods with a Global Taste as our Brand difference.
