More about BeSaucy
We launched BeSaucy in July 2021 in select UK stores and online. The initial range comprises three flavours of creamy, plant-based mayonnaise - garlic, basil and black truffle - made from high-quality, natural ingredients.
Each BeSaucy mayonnaise is created from a base of aquafaba otherwise destined for waste, organic soya milk and cold-pressed rapeseed oil produced by a family-run farm in the Cotswolds. BeSaucy is also committed to having a positive impact on the environment - the product is in fully recyclable packaging.
BeSaucy is led by siblings Ezda, Dashal and Chan Beevers, who are best known for co-founding popular Belgian chip shop BeFries. Inspired by their childhoods growing up in Amsterdam, BeFries served up double-cooked chips and a varied selection of homemade sauces in Brighton for four successful years. Beloved by locals and tourists alike, the venue won a total of sixteen awards, including repeat runner up in the Observer Food Monthly Awards ‘Cheap Eats’ category in 2018 and 2019.
Sadly, BeFries closed last year due to the incredible pressures placed on the high street and restaurant industry. However, the demand for the family’s sauces has continued, as has their desire to create plant-based products that make it easy for consumers to develop more sustainable eating habits.
