Brian of Craft Hot Sauce interviews Bob Ferretti of Caldo Hot Sauce (fomerally Hot Sauce 4 Good). Caldo Hot Sauce is a New Jersey based hot sauce company with giving back at the forefront of their mission. They donate at least $1 of every bottle of hot sauce sold to either World Vision Micro, Urban Impact, or Elijah's Promise.
Brian and Bob talk about going from a hobbyist hot sauce maker to scaling a business, what it means to stand by your company's mission and vision, and lots more.

Cottage Lane Kitchen was founded by me in 2010, and it isn't only my business name, but also refers to a secret lane in Chapel Hill, NC where our family homestead was built in the 1950s. Four generations of my family have cooked and preserved spicy peppers out of love and tradition in that kitchen.
The last homemade batch of my family's spicy pepper relish was made by my Grandfather in the early 1990s. He grew chilies around the outside of the house and harvested and pickled them during my summer visits. I remember him watering the empty tin cans he buried beside each pepper plant.
Normally the Craft Hot Sauce Podcast interviews hot sauce makers all over the world. This episode is more of a riff from Brian the host about some of the things his hot sauce company Craic Sauce got up this summer.
