A WREXHAM-based producer of Spanish sauces has optimised its online sales and expanded into new premises.

Dr Beatriz Albo, who runs Sabor De Amor, sells bottles of authentic paella, alioli, and salsa sauce from her base in the county and is now in the process of moving to a new business unit in Rhostyllen.

The sauce maker hit the small screen in 2017, when it took part in BBC Two’s Top of the Shops programme, during which it won the title of Britain’s Best Artisan Sauce and after help from Superfast Business Wales, the company is selling more sauce than ever before online.

Dr Albo said: “When I started Sabor De Amor, I was cooking from my kitchen. I was making every sauce and going to farmers’ markets and food festivals and now the business has grown and expanded.

“As a business, you start small and everybody’s dream is to go big. I couldn’t have done it, I couldn’t have been in the position I am in now if it wasn’t for both, the television programme exposure and the help of Superfast Business Wales.”

Dr Albo also praised social media in helping to make the business the success it is, as it enabled her to launch a very successful online competition, which engaged with thousands of people in the space of less than 24 hours.

Dr Albo added: “It’s something I would not have dreamed of years ago and now I cannot wait to have it all set up there and employ more people, and have more ideas, new products, new range, and be a huge platform that can be all over the country.”
