Desi High Street

DesiHighStreet® is an online marketplace for UK retailers of ethnic goods. Launched in December 2015 from offices in Leeds. We bring together independent businesses onto one website, where via a personalised shopfront retailers can directly sell their ethnic products to a wider customer base. The first of it's kind in the UK, DesiHighStreet® has a vision to make ethnic goods more accessible by bringing them online and become the ultimate shopping destination for #allthingsethnic
Founded by Kuljit Thiaray , who left her successful career in academia and pharmacy to begin an entrepreneurial journey to create the UK's first niche online platform for ethnic goods.
Based in an Entrepreneurial Spark business accelerator in Leeds, Desi High Street has won prize money from RBS and Natwest in a pitching competition and was recently shortlisted by The Times in their Ready Business Mentor Programme.
