Not yet tasted Chef Sauce. Mainly sold in Ireland, although sometimes found in ASDA supermarkets in the UK.


  • Introduced in 1900 by E. Lazenby & Son, London. This thick brown table sauce was sold alongside their 100 year old Lazenby’s Sauce.
  • Crosse and Blackwell acquired E. Lazenby & Son in 1919.
  • Manufacture of Chef Sauce moved to Ireland in 1921.
  • Crosse and Blackwell (Holdings) Limited were purchased outright by Nestle in 1960.
  • Crosse and Blackwell was divested in 2002 by Nestle and the brand divided between Premier International Foods, in Europe and The J.M. Smucker Company, in North America.
  • Chef Brown Sauce is now owned by Premier International Foods.
  • The manufacturers claim:
The Chef brand has been a staple favourite in Irish households since 1921.  There’s a homeliness about Chef, it’s part of the fabric of life, passed from generation to generation.  Consumers have enjoyed Chef from their childhood and as adults continue to enjoy it with their own children.
What makes Chef different truly unique is the distinct taste that consumer have grown to love.  The unique blend of spices used in Chef Ketchup & Brown Sauce gives Chef a spicy flavour.  Today it’s this well loved taste that remains key for consumers, with Chef being the ultimate symbol of quality and tradition.
