Stokes celebrates 10 years of sauce making!

This month, Stokes Sauces celebrates 10 years of sauce making with special offers, a first ever on pack promotion and exciting new product launches!

To celebrate this milestone, Stokes have launched a 10th anniversary competition giving away 10 fire pit barbeques and barbeque sauce pack, together worth £200! The promotion will be carried on all Stokes products with entry online at and winners will be drawn every week throughout the summer. A new range of gift packs and other seasonal lines are also set to be launched later in the year in conjunction with the anniversary.

Founded in 2004 by Rick Sheepshanks when looking for a real food sauce that would encourage his daughter to eat more vegetables, Stokes Sauces is a food business born from the belief that food should be honest, simple and delicious. Stokes carefully create unique recipes, using great quality real food ingredients for real food flavours. Whether it be Tomato Ketchup, with 196g of Italian Tomatoes to every 100g of sauce or Real Mayonnaise, made with free range eggs and extra virgin olive oil, there really is no cutting corners.

Today the company employ over 40 employees producing over 75 different lines, all hand produced in their Suffolk Saucery. Sheepshanks comments ‘I am extremely proud when I think just how far we have come and I am as excited for the next 10 years as I was in the very beginning. We have a great team at Stokes and this is also an opportunity to say a big thank you to them and to the customers who have supported us since we started’.

Stokes Sauces are stocked nationally in independent retailers, farm shops, restaurants and delis, as well as Waitrose stores, Ocado and Booths and to over 40 countries globally. They also continue to develop and grow their extensive product range, recently launching a new Chipotle Ketchup and gift pack range, as well as adding four new lines to their Waitrose listing across over 200 stores.
