saucy Story

Cheeky Chilli is a family run business, producing the most well known Zimbabwean chilli sauce. The idea of cheeky chilli was born in 1987 when Jack Torr produced a chilli sauce while having a braai with family and friends. Everyone loved it so much they convinced Jack that it should be produced and sold on a larger scale. Within a few months, Jack had created over 30 different variants of the sauce in a Kenwood mixer, but finally decided on the one! Jack’s next challenge was naming his sauce!  After a few beers & whiskeys on a trip to Kariba, Jack & his family decided on the name “Cheeky Chilli”.


34 years later Jack has passed on his Cheeky Chilli legacy to his children and son- in- law. Cheeky Chilli continues to prosper and grow. From the original Cheeky Chilli Peri Peri sauce the family has grown to include 3 more flavours. All 4 Cheeky Chilli flavours can now be found throughout the region.

Cheeky Chilli Peri Peri Sauce has certainly stood the test of time. Chilli sauces have come & gone but 34 years later, Cheeky Chilli is still a firm favourite amongst chilli lovers!
