Thanks for visiting our first crowdfunding campaign! 

We are an artisanal hot sauce and jam producer creating in Brooklyn NY. Our hot sauces and jams are made with the best organic ingredients we can find. We grow the hot peppers in our rooftop garden and source the rest from organic local farms. The small-batches are cooked in a local certified commercial kitchen.

We love making things by hand and we've proved it by growing our own ingredients, perfecting our sauce recipes, and even carving the label designs and prints. Now we want to share all of this with you.

We also donate 5% of our proceeds to help feed the hungry in NYC through our partners' at City Harvest, a local non-profit that helps fight hunger through a variety of programs.

How you can help: Our goal is to raise $5,000 by selling our first commercial batch. Your pre-sales will help BSC launch! Funding will go toward renting a commercial kitchen, packaging costs, insurance, licenses, permits and application fees. With your support, we can reach our goal of $5,000 by the deadline of September 8th. If we can get the sauce and jam lovers of the world to pitch in whatever they can, this goal is definitely achievable. Check us out on our website.

Risks and challenges

Growing our own ingredients and sourcing all organic local products has proven to be a logistical challenge for us because many of our ingredients are seasonal. This affects our greatly affects our timeline, making it hard to calculate just how much we need to produce since we cannot anticipate how much demand there will before each of our sauces.

Anyone supporting this campaign is helping us figure out just how much we need to make before the ingredients are out of season. It also gives us valuable insight as to which recipes are working best and what we can improve.

We have decided to ship only to the United States for this project to avoid dealing with international legal issues (especially tricky with food). Standby international fans for further updates.
