Mr Vikki’s, based in Cumbria, produce award winning chutneys, pickles and chilli sauces. When we say award winning, we’re not really doing justice to the armfuls of accolades Adam Marks of Mr Vikki’s has achieved! To date Adam’s creations have received 102 Great Taste Awards, regarded as The Oscars of the food industry. Mr Vikki’s has consistently been rewarded at the event since he launched the business in 2005.
Before launching Mr Vikki’s, Adam was a successful head chef in his adopted home of Cumbria. Adam became known for creating fantastic curries and Adam credits this period of is life for his chilli addiction!
“I asked his name and a cheeky Chef shouted ‘Call him Vicky’. Unbeknownst to me, Vikki is a common Indian Name. He said he liked the nickname, so we all called him Mr Vikki from then on. We became great friends.”
“When I did my first Farmer’s Market in Penrith in 2005, I did chutneys, jams, fudge and puddings and named a few products after my friend Mr Vikki. These proved the most popular.”
“My personal favourite product is Hot Stuff Chilli Sauce. I keep it in the car and take it abroad with me too! It’s just a great way to add chilli heat to anything, perhaps because I’m a self-confessed chilli maniac!”
