In 2017 we gained two Great taste awards from the Guild of fine food, shipped to our first Chimpions in Australia and U.S.A, we listed on the Slimming World database of products and were stocked in Fenwick food hall, which is like the Harrods of the Northeast of England.
In 2018 we won 25% of the U.K Chilli Sauce Awards. Attended our 1st trade show, where we were picked up by Kew Gardens and were on the curriculum for Newcastle College as the advertising module of the media course there. Three of the students have since made a short documentary on Screaming Chimp, which they got a distinction for their dissertations.
I’ve been and told our story in prisons to help with stigma and let people know they aren’t on their own when it comes to depression and the struggles of starting a new business.
2018 also saw us making a bespoke sauce for an award winning music producer Zed Bias for his album release in this year.
In 2019 at The Speciality Fine Food Fayre, our Chimpotle sauce was used in the making of Bloody Mary cocktails by the Mixology Group at the bar which got lots of people interested in our products.
