Home / How it started [countdown] HOW IT STARTED? 2014 It all began when two sisters, Deena, who had taken voluntary redundancy and just had her second daughter and Shazida, an on the go homemaker sat down for a cup of tea in their North London homes. They struck up a conversation that a posh hamper style company would do great but without the hamper basket and cellophane and with gifts that really were appealing to the Muslim consumer which offered luxurious products and a fabulous gift-receiving experience that everyone would love! 2015 After many late night planning sessions, the name was there, the branding was complete and the business model was also done. Finally, Mubarak London was launched. 2016 The launch was a success and it seemed Mubarak London had filled a well needed gap in the market – we had to pinch ourselves a few times! 2017 We then got a little bit brave and started making “moves” and soon getting recognised worldwide, we received the Start up of the Year award by the FSB in 2017. Corporate brands such as KPMG, Porsche and Clinique were ordering their bespoke corporate hampers from us too! 2018 It was time to get serious and so Mubarak London came back with a fresh look! We worked with different creators and influencers to help get our brand out to the world. 2019 An exciting time for Mubarak London! We finally launched our own products this year, a huge step which turned out to be extremely successful and whole range of tasty products… 2020 Mubarak London was growing strong! We finally moved into a warehouse unit and things were looking good. But the Covid-19 Pandemic hit and the entire world was affected by it’s social and economic disruption. We were still working hard not giving in… 2021 Mubarak London still fighting through the pandemic. Sending hampers of love, grievance and appreciation whilst the country’s in lockdown. This year came with new changes. A whole new rebrand, new website, new image and growing strong with different types of partnerships!
