“Lao Gan Ma, (老干妈) or ​“old god­moth­er” is a brand of chili sauce. In 1997, founder Tao Huabi (陶华碧) start­ed her busi­ness in Guizhou, Chi­na. She’s the very same lady pic­tured on the label!

She was born into a poor fam­i­ly in a remote moun­tain vil­lage and did not ful­ly learn to read or write. Wid­owed a few years after mar­ry­ing her hus­band and hav­ing two kids, she opened a noo­dle shop to sup­port her family.

She soon became well-known for the spe­cial chili sauce she served with her noo­dles, set up her own sauce fac­to­ry, and became a self-made bil­lion­aire with an inter­na­tion­al sauce empire!”
