Based in Blackburn and Warrandyte, this business is run by two saucy sisters who want to share the joys of their family dinners with you and your busy family. Drawing on their Chinese-Vietnamese heritage they have created a range of Asian sauces and condiments that are both hearty and healthy. Their sauces are all free from gluten, colouring, preservatives and additives, with vegan and low fodmap options available. Each jar is bottled with a blend of fresh, locally sourced ingredients, so adding them to your cooking is like inviting a chef into your kitchen.
The name PoppySmack comes from that sound people make when something is tasty like 'pop'!
I'm Tran and I'm Hanh - we are the owners of PoppySmack and we have been AAMI Business Insurance customers since 2016.
We make artisan Asian sources so when you open the lid and use it for your cooking all the flavors and the culture will come pouring out and the history behind our food as well, starting from our Dad.
And that takes us back to Vietnam as well to the places that we grow up.
So we are both sisters. I'm the older one if you can't tell.
So growing up in Vietnam we watch our father run the street store selling his food. So there'll be stations where these steamers with boughs and then there's a coffee station with all these bag coffees and then dripping through and the smell of coffee and this thin bough. It's just really really really delicious.
So we started cooking sauce for our family first and then we're starting to share with our friends, to the school community. So we decided to actually start a business from there.
We use most of the freshest ingredients from locally sourced products within Victoria as well as Australia and people really know our sauce for the fact that it's gluten free and we offer the option for people who are vegan.
So COVID has affected our business in a way that we can't see our customers face to face. So we have to think how we can reinvent ourselves so that customers can buy our products online.
This advertising will allow us to reach to a wider community. It's like a dream come true it's just so precious. We never thought that we would have a TV campaign but to have this support from AAMI this will bring so much confidence back into our business, so thank you.
I really like people to go out there and support more Australian makers, designers and producers.
In five years time we would like to be able to cover the different states of Australia, hiring more people, hiring more young people in Australia.
Hop into our website, follow us on social media and purchase our sauce online at poppysmack.com.
Lucky you’re with AAMI.
While COVID-19 has prevented the sisters from trading at market events, their products are available online or in small grocers. You can help these sisters stay saucy by purchasing a bottle or two for your pantry.
