'Flavour is an expression of art'
Our best selling sauce! Together with a unique blend of spices and traditional cooking techniques, makes this mouth watering sauce so irresistible. The sweetness of the mango is perfectly balanced with the heat of the spices, which fuse together to form the perfect combination to satisfy the senses!
A new addition to the family and by far the best tasting chilli sauce to hit market! After years of attempting to produce the perfect hot sauce, we have finally cracked it! The problem with developing a hot sauce is that it is quite difficult to balance the spice blends in order to preserve the flavour. Not only have we finally managed to produce a sauce with a potent kick, but one that tastes absolutely gorgeous!
A traditionally made sweet chilli sauce, with a beautifully balanced blend of spices and garlic flavouring. We've added our own twist on a classic sauce to produce something truly exceptional.
Made from the finest tamarind fruits and manufactured in the traditional style, this mouth watering sauce really gives you the full flavour of the east. Great on a variety of different foods, our Sweet and Spicy Tamarind Sauce is a must have.
Naj foods is a family run company, based in Manchester and established in 2005 by Antony Khan, the entrepreneurial husband of Najma Khan. Believe it or not, the first product, sweet and spicy tamarind ketchup, started off from a joke around the dining table, when the 40 year old mother of four introduced the tamarind condiment to her family for the first time. 'This is great mum!.. you should sell it!..' Said one of her children, having never tasted anything like it. The family laughed.. 6 months later, Naj foods was formed and the first product had already been developed.
The recipe had been passed down to Najma from her mother in Pakistan, and was cooked in the traditional manner in which she had learnt. After months of experimenting on a lager scale, the sweet and spicy tamarind formula had been perfected and was ready for launch. Her eldest son, Ali Khan who at the time was only 15, designed the entire label which still exists on the product today. Almost 15 years later, he is now in charge of design and marketing for Naj Foods. He even built this website ;) .
Within the first year of launch, Naj foods had gained an enormous amount of interest, at first selling locally around Manchester, then to the whole of the north west.
Their second product, sweet and spicy mango ketchup, was soon developed and propelled them even further, capturing the attention of supermarkets such as Asda and Tesco.
Naj foods now has products all over the country, and is established in around 100 Asda stores across the UK, with many buyers popping up overseas.
The future for Naj Foods looks bright and with a strong family background, they look set to achieve even higher goals ahead of them.
