Maker Story: As Mustafa was growing up, he would visit family in Trinidad and Tobago and enjoy all the delicacies prepared by his grandma. One of which was a pepper sauce unique to his family.
Every trip to Trinidad and Tobago he would end up returning with pepper sauce and other items his grandma made to distribute to family and friends. Over the years, he received glowing feedback and requests for the pepper sauce that led to him wanting to share the sauce with the world.
He began by seeking feedback on different renditions of the sauce. He did this through tastings amongst friends as well as acquaintances that identified as hot sauce enthusiasts. This helped in generating two varieties of sauce, Original and Hot. The Original highlighting the fruity features, and the Hot for those wanting more heat.
Before moving forward with this endeavor, it was important for him to get his grandma’s approval since the recipe for both varieties of the sauce are based on his family’s recipe that has been passed down over five generations. After receiving her blessing, it was time to figure out means of production and financing for this dream.Read the entire Trini Pepper Sauce Maker Story here.
