Prakash Mirchandani is one of the three finalists in the medium business category for IEC Awards. The winner will be announced on 19th November at a Gala dinner in Sofitel
In 1995, Prakash Mirchandani took over an existing business with its nine employees and gave it a facelift. Thus was born the Royal Nut Company, a medium-sized boutique family nut business that markets—wholesale, retail and online—specialised nuts, dried fruits, beans, and confectionery.
“It’s been a tough road but we have managed to grow the business from a small one to a medium-sized business with three retail outlets and an online store,” says Prakash, who adds that the next step is to develop a strong online presence and a vast arrange of customers from cafes and restaurants to hotels, supermarkets and distributors.
“Strong word of mouth has ensured the business continues to thrive. We now have a dedicated customer service team trained by the family to ensure amazing products and service. We have also developed a range of nut flavours in response to customer demand for new products,” says Prakash, and adds that the business is both HACAP and Kosher certified.
“Food brings us together, it brings our families together. And ours is a family business. Whether you enjoy food for its wonderful flavours, medicinal properties or nutritional benefits or even simply because you are just a foodie who enjoys the art of cooking, we create fine food for your wellbeing. Our strong belief in the goodness of food is what keeps us successful in this business,” he says.
The company prides itself on prioritising Australian made products and supporting local Australian farmers though they also carefully select the finest ingredients from all over the world, supplying more than 700 product lines.
