Meet the Makers

MEET THE MAKERS:


Pepper North Artisan Foods was born out of a love for growing super-hot peppers and handcrafting delicious gourmet hot pepper products. We believe in using the freshest locally sourced ingredients possible in order to create a flavour experience that will be enjoyable for all. We are a family owned business established in 2013 located in Oshawa, Canada. We began our journey into the hot sauce world much like many others, by growing hot peppers in our home garden and turning them into delicious spicy products for friends and family. As demand began to grow, so did our batch sizes. Adding eye catching labels, we started attending local farmers markets and festivals to rave reviews from our customers and fellow hot sauce lovers. Before long, we were making a name for ourselves across Canada with our line of delicious super-hot sauces.


Currently our award winning hot sauces and condiments are all natural, free from added preservatives, gluten free, and can be found in over 300 stores across Ontario and beyond.




CORE VALUES:


Our commitment to customer satisfaction is top priority
-By listening to our customers, and understanding the various flavor combinations that are requested, we come up with just the right recipes to suit various taste buds with different heat ranges.


Integrity and transparency in every transaction 
- Making sure we keep the lines of communication open with every partner, ensures that the end result will always be 100% satisfied customers. While our commitment to service excellence is key to our growth, this would not be possible if it weren’t for everyone’s role in Pepper North’s vision of success and continuous growth. There will always be room to improve our internal process in terms of logistics, distribution and our goal of reaching as many fiery food lovers in Canada, but we keep an open mind. This allows us to keep improving our processes and meeting the needs of all our customers.


Using only the highest quality ingredients in every batch
-Every single ingredient whether it be tomatoes, pineapples, maple syrup, etc.… is quality inspected prior to every batch. With a hands-on approach during production, we ensure that every bottle that is packaged meets our customer excellence criteria.


Creativity and innovation to satisfy every palate 
-Through the past several years, since our company’s inception, our product line of fiery sauces has grown, from hot sauces to a range of condiments such as BBQ, Mustard and Jelly. We are not just a hot sauce company, but a fiery foods company that is constantly experimenting with unique flavor combinations and searching for the peppers that would make a perfect key ingredient in every sauce.


Supporting our community by partnering with local farmers
-As a local artisan fiery foods producer, making sure we are selective with every partner who supplies us with ingredients is one of the key factors in our company’s success. Every partner is thoroughly vetted to make sure they meet our excellence criteria.



"We are truly excited and humbled to bring great hot sauces and condiments into Canadian households because we put a lot of love, passion & dedication into each hand crafted batch".
