Yoyo Laos Sauce was founded in 2020 and has won several industry awards since then, and the latest came last month at the UK Chilli Awards, winning the Chef’s Choice Award for their original Ginger Chilli Sauce and coming in second place in the super-hot category for their Luang Prabang special hot sauce.

The business is also featured in a new book, The Fire Eater’s Guide, which features sauces from over 50 countries that the authors, Dean Honer and Neil Ridley, consider to be cream of the crop when it comes to condiments that add both heat and flavour.

Yoyo said: “I’m so excited to be featured in this book, it was a lovely surprise to hear I’d been selected.

"It’s only four years since we started on Todmorden Market and now we are in a book of the best hot sauces in the world, it’s really amazing.”

Yoyo is seeing growing international interest in her sauces with enquiries most recently from Germany and the United Arab Emirates.
