Condiments

Episode 3 of 14

Lord Sugar mixes the boys and girls teams together for the next task, which is to come up with a new condiment - a Mediterranean-style ketchup versus a chilli chutney.

Lord Sugar decides to mix up the teams for the third task, which is to come up with a new condiment; one team goes for a Mediterranean-style ketchup, and the other a chilli chutney. Half of each team head to a condiment factory in Essex to make their product while the others stay in London to design brands and set up sales appointments.

Before producing in bulk, both teams have to produce samples for pitching to a high-end deli. Ketchup is bottled and swiftly despatched, but too much chilli in the chutney means that one team have to pitch to bemused buyers without a product. In the factory there's pressure to produce enough jars to sell and a spanner in the works means an entire batch of sauce must be binned, leaving one team with less product than planned.

Selling to the public, the ketchup goes down a treat but the chutney is a slow mover. With shopkeepers, one team wins a big order but poor negotiations on the other team results in leftover stock.

In the boardroom Lord Sugar relishes assessing what went wrong, the blame is spread and someone turns to jelly when they become the third candidate to hear the words "You're fired".
