About us

AMONG THE FIELDS BURNT BY THE SUMMER HEAT,
THE BURNING CHILI PEPPER RISES PROUDLY,
IN CALABRIA, A LIVING LAND,
WHERE THE SUN DANCES ETERNAL AND SHINING.

Founded in 1970 as a family business, our company was born from the work of our grandparents, Adele and Antonio, and like all good stories it's a love story, the same one that we continue to put in our recipes from generation to generation.

Today we have grown to become a brand present in over 10 countries in the world.

Our vision is ambitious but sincere: we want to be the chilli pepper ambassadors and bring the authentic Calabrian taste into the daily lives of all lovers of good food.

Every chilli we use is carefully selected, grown according to tradition and transformed with modern techniques to create products that reflect the very essence of our land. Our mission is not only to satisfy palates, but to share the culture and traditions of our beloved Calabria with the whole world.

Welcome to the chili family. Welcome to our world.
