About Us

General Business Activities

Williams Foods (Pty) Ltd, a subsidiary of the renowned master blender and spice merchant Williams Spice cc, first established a name in South Africa in 2001.

Williams Foods and Williams Spice were both founded by Tyrone Williams – a taste visionary and flavour design genius. Mr Williams has been creating his best-selling sauce flavours in the South African food market for the last 14 years. He continues to lead this market unhindered.

Mr Williams grew tired of seeing the same mundane tray of sauces presented at every restaurant table. He soon realised that there was a gap in the South African sauce market. That's when he decided to solve this problem by using his own experience in flavour design and develop something more exciting than the regular sauce offerings.

This led Mr Williams to experiment with sauces and spices to create his own unique variations. His family and friends finally brought his attention to the fact he was developing taste sensations that should not be kept a secret. And this marked the humble beginnings of his most popular Chilaca all-in-one sauce.

Chilaca: The all-in-one-sauce


Chilaca is a mild to medium, rich flavoured pepper that when matured and dried is known as pasilla (pah-see-yah) – meaning little raisin. It is a variety of the capsicum annuum.


The Chilaca range of sauces has a unique flavour profile that can be best described as a masterful blend of sweet, tangy, smokey, hot and spicy tomato sauce.

This superior combination of rich flavours pushes the Chilaca brand far ahead of any other sauces available in South Africa today.




The Chilaca spicy tomato sauces are available in five mouth-watering, flavour-filled variants:

1. Chilaca Mild
2. Chilaca Medium
3. Chilaca Hot
4. Chilaca Very Hot
5. Chilaca Smoked


Only fresh spices and fresh ingredients are used in the design of our sauces.
