KANKUN® Backgrounder

KANKUN® is a family business founded in 2012 by Rolando Cardenas, to support the fashionable Mexican culture with authentic Mexican flavours and to liven up the taste of meals without harmful additives.

Born in Mexico, and with UK citizenship, Rolando has a profound passion for food and Mexican culture.  Today he and his team are committed to the KANKUN® BRAND that and have already achieved record sales among restaurants, speciality Mexican shops, delicatessens, independent stores and online retailers.

KANKUN® offers four authentic Mexican sauces. Free of gluten and additives, all are suitable for vegetarians. The range comprises:

  • Chipotle Hot (launched 2012), a unique blend of earthy and smoky spiciness and the perfect heat level
  • Chipotle Mild (launched 2012), for those who like their flavour with a mild touch of heat
  • Marinade Sauce (launched June 2013 at the Harrogate Trade Show), for marinating and adding a Mexican flavour with a smoky medium heat in a single step
  • Habanero (launched April 2013 at the Farm Shop and Deli Show, Birmingham), 85% habanero puree for extreme heat lovers with a moreish flavour

KANKUN® Sauce uses a secret recipe guarded fervently by generations of grandmas, aunties, and mamas from the Cardenas family. As such, the products represent the closest possible replication of the traditional homemade sauces enjoyed at Mexican family gatherings.

Rolando, the artist behind the sauce, learned the art of the perfect chilli mix by sneaking into the kitchen at family dinners and watching, tasting and smelling the age-old recipes at the heart of his family’s tradition. He soaked up the tricks and secrets of the sauces, then replicated them a thousand times until they were as good as those from his childhood.

Rolando’s sauces were first served at fiestas featuring luchadores, mariachis and the most kicking Mexican food in town. Friends would leave Rolando’s house begging to take home a dollop of his home made chilli sauce. It became so popular that Rolando decided to make it available to all by launching KANKUN® Sauce.

Consumers enjoy replicating international flavours in their own kitchens. With this in mind, Rolando has produced the fresh, authentic KANKUN® Mexican sauces with the love and fun of Mexican culture; as Rolando himself would say "Liberate your luchador and bring MEXICO to your table" with KANKUN® SAUCE.
