Emelia has always had a love of food, a love of quality ingredients and a love of condiments. Fed up with trying to find tasty, natural sauces for her family she started to experiment with her favourite ingredients in the family kitchen 30 years ago, little did she know what journey was about to follow from those early years cooking for her family.
As friends and family received gifts of homemade sauces, chutney’s relishes and pickled goods people started to talk about these amazing products that reminded them of times spent with there grandmother or mother who made the family tomato sauce for everyone to enjoy, THEY WANTED MORE! And so Emelia’s The Saucy Australian was born from a small kitchen in Macedon Ranges over 20 years ago and has now become a well known household name that still runs it’s family owned business in Kyneton, Victoria.
The range has grown to more then 40 products but still holds onto the tradition and recipes that started it all.
With a host of food awards from all over Australia for our delicious range, even at 70 years of age, Emelia is always striving for a cleaner, all natural product.
The task of getting Emelia’s to become a household name was no small feat.
Emelia and Ron (her right hand man and husband for over 50 years) spent 10 years travelling across every town in Australia in the “Emelia’s Van” taking their sauces to country towns and cities alike across this magnificent big country of ours.
Now you can find Emelias sauces from Broome to Bicheno, Port Douglas to Port Fairy or even Canterbury to Cronulla. All because Emelia and Ron had a dream to make their incredible sauce range available to everyone across this great land.
And the great story continues as Emelia become a mother on law then a grandmother she has passed the passion for creation down the line. With her daughter in law Natasha now creating, learning and making Emelia’s recipes and her granddaughter Vivienne a familiar face in the commercial kitchen on the school holidays and on the weekends cooking up a storm with her grandmother in the family kitchen home, Emelia’s is going from strength to strength all through family values and love.
