Based in Faversham, Kent, Carrington’s started in the heart of the home; the kitchen. As a young boy, Dominic enjoyed helping his grandmother in the kitchen, it was here where he discovered his love of food and cooking.
After a career as a chef, Dominic decided in 2007 to set up his own food stall serving great tasting vegetarian and vegan food at festivals, markets and private events. Finding it difficult to find the right sauces to accompany the food he was serving, Dominic decided to create his own using honest ingredients, vibrant flavours and a spicy kick. The result was Chillichup a deliciously versatile mild chilli sauce infused with a rich mix of spices and chillis.
The sauce was an instant hit with his customers and they soon started asking to take some home with them. I wasn’t long before Dominic went on to create two more sauces, Hot Hot Chillichup and Shut up Chup.
In 2014 Carrington Foods was established solely for the production of high quality sauces and preserves. Carrington Foods believes in selling its sauces through independent retailers, local markets and festivals to help support local businesses and the local food scene.
