New BBQ Original Relish from Prep House in Crossgar

Prep House Sauces in Crossgar, county Down has created a delicious new Original Relish just in time for the BBQ season.

The new relish is described by the company, a leading Northern Ireland family business and a Food NI member, as “a blend of spices, sweet sultanas and onions”. The new relish is available in 350g plastic bottles at RRP £2.69.

Prep House marketing manager Barry Fitzpatrick says the new relish is the latest in a line of innovative products developed by the company which is now a major supplier to leading retailers, including Aldi, and foodservice operations across the island of Ireland.

“We are experiencing significant growth in retail sales in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland because the lockdown has led to huge growth in home cooking and increased interest in our flavour-rich sauces. The relish adds delicious flavours for BBQ meats in particular.

“We’ve been inundated with retail orders and are currently working overtime to meet these,” he adds.

Prep House has won a string of national awards for its original sauces and dressings, is now supplying the relish to independent retailers specially in Northern Ireland where it has 23 people on the payroll in a state-of-the-art factory.

“The new relish is also a further example of the market knowledge and expertise of our new product development team. They created the unique recipe in our modern development kitchen, a £1 million investment, and trialled with our focus group,” Mr Fitzpatrick adds.

Awards for taste and quality have been achieved from the UK Quality Food and Drink, Great Taste Awards and the Blas nahEireann Irish National Awards.

“The new relish is in line with our strategic objective to enable more home cooks here, in the Republic and abroad to recognise that when a Prep House sauce or dressing is added they have a distinctively delicious meal,” says Mr Fitzpatrick

Original products in its extensive portfolio include vegan, gluten-free and fat-free.
