George Harvey was working in Lourenço Marques now known as Maputo. He used to go there often from South Africa on business while working for SA Canvas in the Sixties
George all ways used to buy cases of this sauce from a street stall on the promenade and bring it back to South Africa where he used it in his restaurant the Bulls inn in White River Mpumalanga and all so used hand it out as gifts to family and friend.
On one of his many trips up to Lourenço Marques he discovered the street stall was gone and the lady making the sauce was nowhere to be found, after some research and asking around on the promenade he found out that the lady that was making this back then had gotten sick and was no longer making it.
So to cut a long story short, he found the lady bought the recipe and started making it himself now this recipe has been in the Harvey Family for over 40 Years.
