In 1973 as business continued to grow further,
Abul travelled throughout Asia and other Asian foods were added to Ostindo's range.
The company now imports and distributes a wide range of Indian and Asian foods.
Two more children joined the Hasnat family, Monika and Dean.
All three Hasnat children spent much of their childhood at Ostindo and enjoyed breathing in the spicy air.
They virtually grew up there. As they matured they assisted substantially with all
aspects of the family business.
However, 23 years later, after completing a Business Degree, it was Dean who joined his parents in the business.
While studying, Dean helped in the kitchen of an Indian Take Away Restaurant, owned by his parents,
and gained valuable knowledge in all aspects of Indian cuisine. Now Dean is carrying Maharajah's Choice
forward into the future!
