Crucial Sauces

It is a fact that Birmingham is the birthplace of hundreds of famous everyday household food names, such as HP Sauce, Cadbury’s Chocolate, Birds Custard and Typhoo Tea. Now there’s a new name to add to the list, The Crucial Sauce Company.

In 1988 Birmingham discovered the Kebab –12 years later The Crucial Sauce Company was established to supply the Fast Food Shops with a Hot Stuff Chilli Sauce. This rapidly grew into a range of over 20 varieties, including the best selling Yoghurt and Mint, Garlic Mayo, Thai Sweet Chilli and BBQ.

Crucial Sauces now adorn the counters of Chip shops, Burger Vans, Takeaways and thousands of fast food shops nationwide. In 2008 it became apparent that there would be demand for a “kitchen cupboard” 500ml size bottle. SOS and The Crucial Sauce Company launched this “pick me up and take me home” size in September 2009. Sales accelerated rapidly with an astonishing 2 million bottles sold in 15 months. The majority of these sales have been primarily through the Independent Retail Sector.
