Tony & Tim – Founders & Brothers – Hobros
The signature Deluxe Chilli Sauces present punchy, savoury flavours, modernising recipes inspired by the Ho brothers’ Hong Kong Chinese heritage whilst keeping it 100% natural and handmade. The growing range of products are created and packaged by hand, with every ingredient sourced with the utmost care.
Since each of these products are unique and the processes used to create them are so precise, production cannot be scaled in a linear fashion. To scale up from prototypes, Hobros got a bigger pan to cook more ingredients, but only up to about three times the original amounts – any larger and the precision required for each stage would be impossible to maintain.
Hobros choose not to automate the process for reasons of texture. If the ingredients are not prepared in the precise way they are now, you might get the same fabulous flavour of sauce when blended, but the texture becomes more like a ketchup. Moreover, in this form it is more likely to need a stabiliser to keep the oil and water together – and anything chemical would be out of the question.
Brothers Tony and Tim started the business back in 2018, drawing on their professional backgrounds in the food industry and passion for delicious foods to start making some truly unique products. Tony runs a successful high end catering company, and whose work has allowed him to explore some of the finest food products from around the world. Both brothers have undergone professional chef training, and each and every ingredient has been personally tasted before being used in their sauces and oils.
Truly a family business, the inspiration for their signature XO sauce came from a conversation around the dinner table with their mother, in her native Hong Kong. They were enjoying some sauces gifted from a friend of their mother, taking immense pleasure from the textures and flavours of the homemade versions. But even these contained additives and preservatives, going against their food philosophy. So they decided to make their own.
Now each and every one of their delicious, hand crafted products is absolutely free from chemicals at every stage of the process, whilst enhancing the natural flavours and textures of the ingredients.
