Kaitaia is the last major town before reaching the very Northern tip of New Zealand. ‘Kai’ is Maori for food – and ‘Kaitaia’ means ample food. Just 15 minutes from Kaitaia, the warm waters of the South Pacific wash into a golden sand bay and there sits New Zealand’s hottest crop: 5 acres of organic chili peppers.
Kaitaia Fire began in 1989 and since then this flavorful chili pepper hot sauce has grown into a house hold staple in New Zealand and is being exported all around the world. This makes an awesome New Zealand gift or a unique choice for a chili sauce or pepper sauce fan!
A TRADITIONAL RED CHILI HOT SAUCE: made with cayenne peppers which have been lovingly tended using organic principles to produce fiery red fruit.
THE CHILI PEPPERS: used in Kaitaia Fire are sun-ripened in New Zealand’s far north, finely milled with sea salt and barrel aged to create a superior piquant flavor. The process removes virtually all the sugars in the fruit, and releases the pepper’s volatile oils. This is pure Kaitaia Fire.

FREE OF: artificial preservatives, coloring and sugar this chili sauce packs a punch!
