As the largest organic chilli grower and processor in the U.S. we can supply a wide range of products that meet customers’ growing desire for organic foods.

We produce chillies from New Mexico and India. Our diverse supply chain means we can provide all year round supply and stay resilient in the face of weather events and other disruption.

As we work directly with growers and farmer-partners, we have full oversight of growing practices, excellent access to ingredients, and control over the standards of storage and transportation.

We use inline natural steam sterilisation and proprietary processes to reduce pathogens at our processing facilities.

We are using drones and other agricultural technologies throughout our New Mexico operations to improve sustainability through more efficient and effective crop management. For example, we are able to identify water stressed areas as well as early detection of pests and diseases to concentrate crop inputs exactly where they are needed and increase yields.

With approximately 900 growers in India alone, we are always taking conscious steps towards the continuous improvement of our farmers' livelihoods.
