- Roza's Gourmet Sauces
Since taking over the business from her late mother, Jasmin Robertson has grown Roza’s Gourmet Sauces into a BRW Fast 100 company that is turning over $2.5 million.
“When I took over the business five years ago, I had two staff and a $20,000 overdraft,” she says.
But last year, the business grew by 30% and Roza’s Gourmet Sauces now sells 11,000 products a week on average.
“There have been a lot of difficult choices, big steps, and scary moments in the last few years, but I think I am most proud of my determination to get through the difficult periods, never giving up and following my instincts,” Robertson says.

Robertson has recently visited China as a delegate for Australia Week in China, which was led by federal minister for trade and investment Steven Ciobo.
“I am looking forward to coming back to Shanghai for the SIAL food expo next month and generally spending 2016 exploring and building international expansion opportunities for Roza’s in the Asian market,” she says.
