Termite Chilli Sauces and Chutneys
Our premier speciality is the range of chilli sauces that are produced right on the premises. Having a love for chillies the idea of combining chilli with mango became the first product in the termite chilli sauce range, and still remains the most popular.
With the success of the mango & chilli sauce, we began trying different types of local fruits, combining them with different types of chillies to offer the chilli lover a great range of delicious sauces to complement many cuisines.
It didn't take long before local seafood outlets and meat specialists began to stock the chilli sauce range, requests from happy customers looking for more chilli sauces have led us to make the product available via our website. Click this link to browse the full range of Termite Chilli Sauces.
