My story

I cooked up my first fruity chilli sauce, Habanero with pineapple & mango, named it ‘Hephaestus’ after the Greek God of Volcanos, and sold it at my school’s summer fair. The feedback I got was amazing! I don’t know what people expected my chilli sauce to taste like, it is made by a teenager, but they said it was ‘Wow!’, and ‘quite nice, actually!’. I sold all of my first batch, but we found the demand for my product too high to cope with. As neither me, or my parents, have time to make lots of sauce, I looked to local company Sauce Shed (Dave & Olly) and they helped me to refine my chilli sauce recipe and take it into production. They also helped me to create two more chilli sauces to compliment my original; Jalapeno with Pear & Lime and Naga with Chocolate & Chipotle.

I also relied on Mum & Dad’s business, Fidelity Design & Print, to help me draw up my logo design so it could be used on labels and the website – that they helped me create.

I have successfully sold my fruity chilli sauces online and at local food and Christmas fairs. I’m hoping to create new complimentary sauces and get them all stocked in local food and farm outlets in my local area.

My current sauces are great with Mexican food; Naga makes a great chilli-con-carne, Habanero works well smothered on chicken or as a side dip, both Habanero and Jalapeno make quick tomato and avocado salsas to accompany nachos or fajitas.
