Award-winning premium curry sauces and accompaniments from Anila’s Authentic Sauces are now on sale at Bents Garden & Home, Cheshire – four times holder of the best destination garden centre in the UK.
The outlet is the first stockist of Anila’s range in the area.
Around 18 products made by Anila’s Authentic Sauces are now on sale in the food hall at the garden centre in Glazebury, near Warrington, which was named the Garden Centre Association Destination Garden Centre of the Year in 2011 for the third year running.
“We recently had a very successful tasting session at Bents Garden & Home – their customers loved our range of curry sauces, chutneys and pickles – and so I am delighted that the luxury food hall has become our first garden centre stockist in Cheshire,” said Anila Vaghela, who founded Anila’s Authentic Sauces in 1997.
“Our sauces are premium products that contain only natural ingredients, and are free from dairy, gluten, added sugar, onion and garlic. They are also suitable for vegans and vegetarians, so they are perfect for a wide range of customers. We are sure they will go down very well with customers in the speciality food hall of Bents Garden & Home, which specialises in products from local, national and international suppliers with impeccable provenance.”
Established in 1937, Bents is a family run business that has grown from a small garden centre into a destination for quality, home, garden and leisure shopping. Its food hall is an emporium for food lovers.
Anila’s products, which sell through delis, farm shops, garden centres, health food stores and quality food retailers, have recently unveiled new labels to reflect the distinct characteristics of the range and to promote the concentrated nature of the superb Indian curry sauces – adding water doubles the quantity of curry sauce. Behind the labels are guides to making the perfect authentic meal using the ingredients of choice, along with serving suggestions and contact details for even more great recipe ideas.
The curry sauces, chutneys, pickles and dips are also being packaged in chic new jars.
Anila’s has won 11 Great Taste Awards from the Guild of Fine Food for its products. Its Goan Green Curry Sauce was named Best Vegan Product in The Veggie Awards 2011 by Cook Vegetarian! magazine, with the judges saying: “Not only one of the best vegan curry sauces we’ve ever tried but one of the best curry sauces available. Its complexity of flavours makes its taste truly sensational.”
In 2009 Anila’s Spicy Korma Curry Sauce scooped a “Free From” Food Award.
Anila’s Authentic Sauces is based in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, with a unit in Hounslow, and is run by Anila and her husband Dan.
Anila’s products are sold at John Lewis Oxford Street and John Lewis Bluewater, and top quality gourmet stores, such as Harrods, Wholefoods and Planet Organic, plus hundreds of other outlets that include health food stores, garden centres and gift shops, as well as smaller independent stores such as Budgens at Ascot, Shepperton and Crouch End. Anila’s also sells direct to the public at around 20 farmers’ markets across Surrey, Berkshire, and Buckinghamshire, including Guildford, Walton, Windsor, Maidenhead, Ascot, Ripley, Reading, Beaconsfield and Farnham, and online via www.anilassauces.com
