The Chilli Project has taken out first place at the 2020 Mr Chilli Awards.
And the Helensburgh business's Jalapeno Hot Sauce was named the Best Mild Chilli Sauce in Australia and New Zealand.
The Chilli Project owner Michelle Walsh said she was thrilled to win the two awards for the second year running at the Mr Chilli Awards.
"To win the Mild Sauce category is a huge honour. We are so excited. There were over 100 companies from Australia and New Zealand in this year's competition," Ms Walsh said.
"We pride ourselves on creating delicious sauces. So it is wonderful being recognised for doing just that.
"Our Jalapeno Hot Sauce is bright and vibrant, really versatile and mild enough for the whole family to enjoy".
The Chilli Project Signature Blend Hot Sauce placed second place in the Tomato Sauce category.
Ms Walsh said it continued to be noticed for its delicious combination of tomato, capsicum and chilli after winning first place at the 2019 awards.
"Our Signature Blend Hot Sauce is extremely popular and is now available in three heat levels. So there is a version for everyone".
The Chili Project Smokin' Hot BBQ Sauce was also awarded second place in the highly contested Hot BBQ category.
"This is the first time we've entered our Smokin' Hot BBQ Sauce in these awards," Ms Walsh said.
The Chilli Project is regularly seen at food and wine festivals across NSW.
But COVID-19 has severely impacted the business in 2020 which has seen the cancellation of all markets and events for six months.
But Ms Walsh remained positive and has been rewarded with an increase in online sales and four places at the Mr Chilli Awards.
"We might not be able to get out to events right now, but we can still deliver our award-winning sauces right across Australia. And our customers have all been very supportive and encouraging," she said.
The Chilli Project sauces are made from fresh Australian grown chillies and nothing artificial.
They range from mild to extreme heat with a sauce for all palates.
Sauces and gift packs can purchased online and at selected fine food retailers across NSW.
