A range of sauces produced by independent Chinese restaurant Sweet Mandarin are to go on sale in the free-from aisles of 500 Sainsbury's stores after it won a coveted listing with the supermarket chain. 

The three sauces - barbecue, sweet chilli and sweet & sour - are produced by chef Lisa Tse in the Manchester restaurant's kitchen and have so far been sold through the restaurant and more recently through Chinese grocer Wing Yip​. 

Tse, who runs the restaurant with twin sister Helen, said they were pleased to now be able to sell the sauces, which contain no gluten, monosodium glutamate or artificial colourings, to a wider audience and get the Sweet Mandarin name out there. 

"We are delighted to be launching our gluten free Chinese dipping sauces through Sainsbury’s, giving us national distribution with a partner who like us, believes food should be at the highest quality. We can't wait to work with Sainsbury's. It is a dream come true for a British manufacturer like us," she said. 

Sweet Mandarin now joins a number of independent and chain restaurants in seeing their branded products​ go on sale in nationwide supermarkets.
