The history of one of the world's most famous condiments harks back to 1908, when one Mr. Lingham first concocted it in Butterworth. Lingham, an Indian migrant, came up with a sauce that does not contain bird eye chilies or sambal belacan to suit the European palate. His winning formula? A mixture of sweet and sour tastes, which comes from the original formula of fresh chillies, sugar, salt and vinegar with no additives and preservatives.
Lingham's was so popular that it has tributes from around the world from die-hard fans, including a letter from the grateful British soldiers serving in Afghanistan. The latter was merely following a proud tradition of packing Lingham's in their rations, a tradition that dates back to World War II.
But after the war ended, Mr. Lingham decided to sell his thriving business to Mr. Ooi, a desk clerk at a British trading house called Henry Waugh Co. Ltd., and return to India. The name and the recipe was retained through numerous changes throughout the years and in 1971 it was incorporated into Lingham's & Son (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd. Today, it is owned by Biz-Allianz International and it has moved its facilities from its Mak Mandin factory in Butterworth to its new facility in Selangor.
Unfortunately, no one knows what became of Lingham or the "son" but his name lives on. 𝑳𝒊𝒌𝒆 𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒑𝒐𝒔𝒕? 𝑯𝒆𝒍𝒑 𝒖𝒔 𝒕𝒐 𝒍𝒊𝒌𝒆 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒔𝒉𝒂𝒓𝒆 𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒑𝒐𝒔𝒕! ❤️🔥 Sauces: https://www.thestar.com.my/…/2008/10/12/mr-linghams-tasty-l…  https://rojakdaily.com/…/lingham-s-malaysia-s-most-successf…
