Thank you Omnivore fans and friends for the incredible support over the past 15 days!
Our initial goal is funded, Omnivore Limone will be soon on the market, and it's now time to announce our first stretch goal of $40.000!
We really have a thing for spices. We'd add spices to anything! So, here we are, excited to share our newest creation—VULCANO Classic!
With your continued support, we can craft the first of a series of new organic hot sauces, and add a new incredible artisanal product to your pantry!
There are many factors that influence how a hot sauce expresses itself, first of all the quality of the ingredients! Vulcano Classic is made only using the best organic ingredients: tomatoes, cayenne pepper, bell pepper, onions, vinegar, garlic, water, natural sea salt, and a little sugar. Absolutely no preservatives or additives will go into our Vulcano.
With its bright, savory, complex flavor, and a medium spice level, Vulcano is the perfect condiment to add a little bang to your eggs, potatoes, chicken, burgers, stir-fries, sausages, or to liven up deeping sauces, cocktail sauces, spreads, soups and broths.
Bring Angelo's tradition into your kitchen and help us unlock our second goal!
NOTE: On Kickstarter, it is only possible to pledge to each project once from a single account. However, you can change your pledge amount and reward selection for as long as a project is live. If you would like to add VULCANO CLASSIC follow the istructions below!
If the stretch goal is not funded, you will receive 1 bag Limone for each jar of Vulcano purchased.
My name is Angelo, and I'm the founder of Omnivore!
At the end of 2013, thanks to the support of thousands of Kickstarter contributors, we were able to fund our company, and launch our first product, Omnivore Salt, a versatile spiced salt blend defined by Alice Waters as "indispensable". Within a few months, we shared with you Sicilia a unique condiment sauce, handcrafted and locally made in micro-batches.
At Omnivore, our mission is to inspire a change in production practices and a new relationship with food. We are reaching a new awareness about our food supply, but many of the choices in the market are still produced in large-scale, using highly processed ingredients to prioritize profit over quality.
We create nutrient-packed cooking products, only crafted in small batches to ensure the best flavor and the highest quality. Our ingredients are 100% organic, and when possible, locally sourced—we are inspired by our grandmothers' sensitivity and respect for nature's bounty, not by food trends.
We believe that cooking should be rewarding and simple—all our blends will enhance the natural flavors of your ingredients, and are easy to use across any type of cuisine.
Cooking is an act of love, and we want to inspire you to do more of it.
It is time to grow and connect with more of you!
Thanks to the enthusiastic support of our Kickstarters backers and many loyal customers, Omnivore Salt and Sicilia are available online and in a small network of specialty stores. But our aspirations are greater! We want to grow our company, and share our products and message with a larger audience. We proudly have never accepted funding from outside investors. The success of this campaign means we get to continue growing on our terms!
For months, we've been experimenting with new blends, testing them in hundreds of recipes, and adjusting each ingredient until the balance was perfect. Now we are ready to present the first of a new series of artisanal seasonings, OMNIVORE LIMONE, a zesty and herbal salt blend that will bring out the best flavors of seafood and poultry!
Limone is inspired by my heritage, and is a tribute to one of the most versatile ingredients in Mediterranean cuisine, the lemon.
I grew up on a citrus grove in Sicily, living by the seasons, cooking, pickling, hunting, and preserving. The women of my family passed down recipes from generation to generation. They taught me the value of timeless quality and great flavors—how to create simple seasonings that do not compete with food, but rather improve it.
While foraging as a child, I learned the wonder of herbs—when mixed with salt, they give character to your food and make your cooking simple!
Meet the new Omnivore Limone!
Limone is a mix of of locally harvested natural sea salt and lemon zest, dill, ginger, parsley, garlic, fennel and black pepper.
Enhancing the most subtle flavors of seafood and poultry, Omnivore Limone creates a delicate and unique experience for the palate.
It is made using only 100% organic, GMO FREE, OU Kosher, SQF and HACCP Certified herbs and spices. More than 50% of our ingredients are Fair Trade Certified and our salt is pure—NO flowing agents, minerals or anti-cacking agents are added.
Omnivore Limone is versatile!
Rub it on white meats or fish before roasting or grilling. Use it in a marinade or mix it with breadcrumbs to create an aromatic coating. Combine it with butter, yogurt, or crème fraîche to give your cooking a Mediterranean twist. Add it to your brines, soups, stewes, and sous vide recipes to enjoy a burst of zesty, herbaceous flavor.
With its unique, balanced flavor, Omnivore LImone will revolutionize your cooking, and will become a stample in your pantry!
Unlike our premier spiced salt blend Omnivore Salt, Limone is not a finishing product. It is best added to your food prior or during cooking in order to rehydrate the dried herbs, and let their flavor infuse your recipes.
Limone will be sold in a resealable, 6 oz paper bag. This new package is smaller than the original Omnivore Salt, will be easier to carry, will save space in your cabinets, and reduce overall packaging waste!

Risks and challenges
There are always risks and challenges with developing a new product, but since we will be packaging in the United States and we will only work with local suppliers, we will have tighter control over schedule and quality.
With our experience and the amazing support of friends, customers, and you, we can make it happen. We have everything in place to suceeed!
