Katya’s passion for Mexican food has infused every part of her life and dynamic entrepreneurial career, leading her to take ownership of Mexgrocer.co.uk in 2009. Her mission is to share her passion for her Mexican heritage and food, inspiring families, foodies, restaurateurs and chefs across Europe to embrace and celebrate the culture and cuisine of Mexico every day. Katya is a hands-on CEO, overseeing all aspects of the company from dealing with suppliers around the world, to pricing, customer engagement and franchising. Katya is constantly looking to innovate the Mexgrocer customer experience, through the sourcing of new and inspiring products.
What motivated you to open your own business?

What do you enjoy most about celebrating Independence Day ?
What I enjoy most is seeing the union of the Mexican community to celebrate our traditions with both pleasure and pride for our country. And of course, we get to sample all the great food and drinks from the motherland that are on offer during this special celebration!
