Hot Face Sauces has been named Winner of the Producer of the year at the Taste Of Kent Awards 2015. The prestigious awards took place at the Kent Showground on the 12th March 2015.
Husband and Wife Owners from Maidstone Richard and Erica Mathews said “Winning this award has meant a lot to both of us as well as to our customers. Since starting this business in June 2014 we have worked tirelessly to grow and develop our business and brand and to be rewarded by winning this prestigious award is a fantastic reward for all our efforts. No doubt this award will help develop our business even further and get us some much needed publicity on a larger scale than we have managed to achieve so far and lead to an influx of new customers both from the consumer and business side.”
Stephanie Durling of Taste of Kent comments: “The awards highlight the very finest produce the county has to offer. For the winners the Taste of Kent Awards are the ultimate accolade in the Kentish food and drink sector, but it is not just about celebrating great tasting food once a year. If we all sourced 10% of our weekly groceries from Kent producers, retailers and farmers’ markets we can help to generate over £185 million for our local economy.”
About Hot Face Sauces:
We make and bottle our sauces in Kent. None of our products are manufactured in China or the US then shipped here.
We only use fresh chillies – this means all of our sauces have a truly authentic and fresh taste.
Our sauces are made in small batches ensuring the quality and care is in place meaning the sauces you enjoy are of the highest quality and taste.
We don’t use any artificial additives, flavour enhancers or capsaicin extracts. Yes chillies are hot but let them introduce their real heat to the sauce and let’s appreciate chillies for what they are.
All of our products are low in salt – When we first created this company we wanted to produce something that we would be happy for our kids to eat so we only use the smallest amount possible of salt (less than 2 teaspoons per 50 bottles).
Most of our sauces contain little or no sugar (obviously some of sauces are based on sugar so excluding these cheeky few!), again as little as two teaspoons per 50 bottles, I bet you put more in your tea or coffee every day!
