Thank you to everybody who helped us reach our initial goal in less than 10 days!

Now, Filfil Foods needs your help spreading the flavor of Filfil to reach our stretch goal $15K. Filfil Foods is expanding and we need to begin production with a Co-Packer to keep up with the demand.

"One taste of Filfil (No.7) and the comparison to any other product disappears. There’s the immediate hit of garlic—good garlic without a trace of bitterness—followed by the heat of the pepper. It has great depth of flavor and pairs well with any number of foods." --- Francesca and Marisa

Filfil Foods was founded in 2012 in Brooklyn, New York

Filfil Foods specializes in making gourmet garlic condiments, spreads, and marinades. The word Filfil means 'pepper' in Arabic, and the hot sauce is a modern version of 'Filfil chuma' (pepper & garlic), an ancient recipe originating from North Africa, where it is a staple in cooking and dressing of foods. The original recipe was re-mastered with love to accommodate the modern palate and is irresistibly delicious.

We at Filfil Foods are committed to producing American made, all natural, unsweetened foods without preservatives that are very low on sodium.

Why we need your help:

All parts of our products are American Made, we use premium bottles and packaging to get Filfil to you. Since Filfil Recipe No.7's recent features in Martha Stewart and Food & Wine we have received many requests for other products.

This is why we have turned to you, our established patrons and the Kickstarter community. We need your support to launch our second product, Filfil No.6 and if we surpass the goal, Filfil Foods will be able to keep expanding our line. 

Our new garlic condiment, Filfil No. 6, has a more paste-like consistency, that is amazing as a marinade for rotisserie chickens, meats, fish, and is great for vegan options.

Who we are:

Co-founders Einav & Jeff
Co-founders Einav & Jeff

Einav Sharon created her own recipe for filfil chuma, and even after settling in Jersey City, she made it for friends for years. One of those friends is Jeff Silva, a San Diego native who was introduced to Einav in 2008, when their cats met while wandering the building hallway. “Jeff loved my filfil chuma, and together we decided to bring it to the world,” Einav says.

Risks and challenges

We are a small business, therefore we handle all aspects of the company. We ship, we fulfill, we make the sauces, we do everything. The only risk is that Filfil will be loved by so many people that there will be such a high demand that we will have to expand our company.
