August 5 was the day Rajesh Rocky Luthras company Sudesh Foods crashed and burned.
But just a day later, Luthera started a new company, Van de Broods Ltd.
Luthra set up Sudesh Foods in February 2015 to sell mainly meat products to ethnic restaurants. Van de Broods is also in the food wholesaling business, according to company records.
Sudesh Foods, which has debts of about $200,000, left its rented premises in Hornby, Christchurch, a few months ago. Luthra has listed the address as the registered office of Van de Broods.
