Major Grey's Chutney is a type of chutney, reputedly created by a 19th century British Army officer of the same name who, though likely apocryphal, presumably lived in Colonial India. Its characteristic ingredients are mango, raisins, vinegar, lime juice, onion, tamarind extract (occasionally), sweetening and spices.

Within the UK, a number of manufacturers produce a "Major Grey's Mango Chutney", for example Patak's,and Butterworth & Son. One of the oldest brands, reputedly the first manufacturer to popularize the chutney in the West, is Crosse & Blackwell,now owned by the J.M. Smucker Company. Major Grey's Mango Chutney is also manufactured in Pune, India by Desai Brothers Ltd. under the brand name Mother's Recipe and has been exported to Singapore.

The Crosse & Blackwell product is an imitation of a much older, Sun Brand Major Grey's Chutney, made by Poonjiajee Bros. and imported from Bombay (Mumbai), India.[citation needed] The latter has almost disappeared from the U.S. market.

Stonewall Kitchen has a version made with sugar rather than high fructose corn syrup.
