2018 International Flavor Award Winner – Steamin’ Steve’s Sweet Heat Hot
Hello friends, family and our wonderful customers!
We have officially been manufacturing our Steamin’ Steve’s barbecue sauce for the public to purchase and enjoy for six months. What an exciting journey we have had thus far and want to thank you for our continued success.
Many of you are new to the experience of our barbecue sauce kicking your food to a whole new level. Some of you were with us in 2012 when we were making our sauce and storing them in Mason jars for family and friends to enjoy. We have come a long way from those humble beginnings.
We have some great news to share with you! As you know, we make three barbecue sauces… Steamin’ Steve’s original, mild and hot. This past summer, we submitted our sauces into the 2018 International Flavor Awards competition. We are proud to say that Steamin’ Steve’s Hot barbecue sauce won first place. Yeah, we figured you would be as excited as we were with this news! We always knew we had great barbecue sauces and it’s nice to find out that others share the sentiment.
Let me tell you a couple of things about the International Flavor Awards competition. They provide specialty, craft-made and artisan food manufacturers the opportunity to compete on an international stage against similar sized companies. As an organization, the International Flavor Awards, LLC claims to provide impartial and knowledgeable judging of food & drink products throughout a variety of genres and themes. The Flave Awards strive to bring value to food-based competitions and to promote the outstanding products and companies that set themselves apart by being known as a “Flave Award Winner”!
Enough about them…we competed and won the “BBQ Sauce – Hot” category against seven countries with our Steamin’ Steve’s Hot Barbecue sauce. Not too bad for a small family business on their first competition. We look forward to entering future competitions and bringing home more awards with our sauces.
Well, that about catches you up with us. Please hang around because we have some exciting things planned for the future!
