Here's our story: 

We grew up on Chilean hot sauce, we know how good this stuff is and we wanted to make our own version to share with you.

Batch after batch, we tested and tasted until we got it right, until we got the exact mix we were after, the perfect balance between taste and heat. 

To get to the point we are at today, it took a lot of hard work and a little luck.

A few years ago, we got the idea of making our own version of the sauce we'd been tasting since our youth. How hard could it be, right? We started asking around, trying to find the secret but to no avail, no one knew how to make it. 

It took an unexpected invitation for us to be able to start cracking the code. 

On a business trip to Chile, David got a last minute invite to a dinner in a typical Chilean family. During that dinner, the hostess gave him some of the best hot sauce he had ever tasted. Upon tasting, David asked for the recipe and the hostess agreed to share. Although her sauce was awesome, she used a commercial pepper paste as the base of her recipe. None the less, it was a small breakthrough for us.

With some of that commercial paste in our hands we started making sauce.

The sauce was a big hit amongst friends, to the point where we were able to sell 600 bottles in a couple of months through word of mouth only.

Although our sauce was a success, we weren't 100% happy with it. We still had a commercial paste in our sauce and that didn't work for us. We wanted to make our own natural version without all the preservatives and weird ingredients added, we wanted to control our product from A to Z. 

We had to find the right hot peppers to make our own paste. We tried many different types of peppers that were available here in Canada and none of them gave us the taste we were after.

Armed with a desire to find the exact pepper, we decided to go back to Chile to hunt down the pepper we needed.

Through visits to different local markets and farms we finally found what we were looking for!

So what's in the sauce?

It's a mix of carefully selected Chilean hot peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, onions and lemon juice. 

When you mix these ingredients in the right quantities you get an addictive condiment called Oro Rojo.

Our sauce won't melt your insides, it won't overpower the taste of whatever you are eating, Oro Rojo will just make it all taste better. Oro Rojo is the perfect compliment to any meal, from breakfast to that late night snack. You will want to put Oro Rojo on errthing. 

Oro Rojo is the best sauce you'll ever taste.

Here's how you pronounce it.
Here's how you pronounce it.

The Next Chapter

We're ready to share Oro Rojo with the world. 

We want a bottle of our hot sauce on every table at every party, every dinner, every get together. We want Oro Rojo to be part of your best moments and your best stories. Oro Rojo will be the sauce of your life.

This is our dream and with your help it can become reality. Together we can make this happen.

We are reaching out to you guys because we need funding to mass produce our first commercial batch.

The money you guys chip in will go towards purchasing ingredients (mainly those hard to get Chilean peppers), bottles, labels, paying our co-packer and getting the necessary permits and certifications.

Here we are with our co-packer, Greg Brooks, the Peppermaster

EN FRANÇAIS :

Oro Rojo : La sauce de votre vie

Faite à Montréal, inspirée de nos racines chiliennes, la sauce Oro Rojo est le parfait équilibre entre goût et piquant. Faites partie de la Haute Sauciété!

Voici notre histoire

On a grandi avec la sauce piquante chilienne, on sait à quel point c'est délicieux, on voulait donc faire notre propre version pour pouvoir la partager avec la planète entière. 

Essai après essai, on a testé, on a gouté, jusqu'à trouver le mélange qu'on recherchait, la dose parfaite de saveur et de piquant. 

Pour en arriver au point où nous en sommes aujourd’hui ça l’a pris beaucoup de travail et un peu de chance. 

Il y a quelques années, on a eu l’idée de faire notre propre version de la sauce que nous goutions depuis notre enfance. Facile, n’est-ce pas? Et bien pas tant que ça, on a demandé à pleins de gens en espérant que quelqu’un est le secret, mais personne ne savait comment la faire cette fameuse sauce. 

C’est une invitation surprise qui nous a permis de commencer à découvrir le secret de la sauce. 

En voyage d’affaires, David s’est fait inviter à souper dans une famille typiquement chilienne. Lors du souper, l’hôtesse a servi la meilleure sauce piquante qu’il avait goutée dans sa vie. David a demandé de connaître la recette et l’hôtesse a gentiment accepté de la partager. Malgré que sa sauce était délicieuse, elle utilisait une pâte de piment disponible en épicerie comme la base de sa recette. 

 Avec quelques sacs de cette pâte de piment entre nos mains, on a commencé à faire de la sauce. La sauce fut un franc succès parmi nos amis, à un point tel que nous avons réussi à vendre 600 bouteilles en quelques mois seulement avec du bouche-à-oreille. 

Notre sauce était un succès, mais nous n’étions pas 100 % satisfait. On avait toujours la pâte de piment commerciale dans notre sauce et ça n’était pas quelque chose qu’on voulait garder à long terme. Nous voulions créer notre propre version sans les agents de conservation et les ingrédients imprononçable, on voulait contrôler notre produit de A à Z. 

Nous avions une mission, trouver les piments forts qui nous permettraient de faire notre propre pâte. Nous avons expérimenté avec différents types de piments qui était disponible au Canada, aux États-Unis ainsi qu’au Mexique et aucun ne nous donnait le goût que nous recherchions. 

Armé du désire de trouver le piment parfait dont nous avions tant besoin, nous avons décidé de retourner au Chili pour le trouver. 

Après de nombreuses visites dans des marchés et fermes du Chili ainsi que plusieurs discussions avec les locaux, nous avons finalement trouvé ce que nous cherchions!

Alors, qu'est-ce qu’il y a dans votre sauce? 

C’est un mélange de piments forts, tomates, coriandre et jus de citron. En combinant ces ingrédients dans les bonnes quantités (notre secret) on obtient un produit aussi addictif qu'une drogue, mais bon pour vous dans tous les sens : la sauce Oro Rojo. Notre sauce ne fera pas fondre vos organes vitaux, elle ne prendra pas le dessus sur le goût de vos plats, Oro Rojo ajoute du délicieux. Oro Rojo est le parfait allié pour vos repas ou collations, du déjeuner jusqu’au snack de minuit, vous allez vouloir mettre du Oro Rojo sur tout! Oro Rojo sera la sauce de votre vie. 

Le prochain chapitre

On est prêts à partager Oro Rojo avec le monde. On veut une bouteille de notre sauce sur votre table, à chaque party, chaque souper, chaque événement. Non seulement on veut faire partie de vos meilleurs moments, de vos meilleures histoires, on veut les rendre meilleurs.

Un rêve c’est beau, mais c'est quand il devient réalité que la magie se crée! Avec votre aide on peut réaliser nôtre rêve. Vos contributions nous aideront à financer notre première production commerciale. L’argent que vous investissez nous permettra de faire l’achat d’ingrédients (principalement nos piments du Chili), de bouteilles, d’étiquettes, ainsi que de payer notre embouteilleur et obtenir tous les permis et certifications nécessaires. Faites partie de notre histoire et vous pourrez raconter à vos petits-enfants que vous avez financé le premier lot d’Oro Rojo, ce lot qui nous aura permis de prendre nos premiers pas sur le chemin de la gloire.

Risks and challenges

After you guys give us a hand, we will be ready to launch an all out attack and paint the town Rojo.

What will be the possible challenges we could face?

First, there could be a challenge with production if demand is higher than expected. If that happens, we would have to reevaluate our initial order with our co-packer but that is easily done, has they can accommodate us with a much higher number of units if needed.

Our second challenge is also something we are most looking forward to: getting the brand known.

We are already in talks with a couple of high profile restaurants and retail spots that would be interested in carrying Oro Rojo and even using it in their recipes.

Step by step, we will build brand awareness all over our city, through our retails spots, by sponsoring local events and having an Oro Rojo booth whenever and wherever a booth can be had.

Then the world...

We want to be the Red Bull of hot sauce; we want to be a global brand.

___________________________________________________________________

EN FRANÇAIS :

Suite à cette campagne Kickstarter, on pourra enfin se lancer à fond dans notre projet et rassasier tous nos saucés en manque.

Quels seront les défis à surmonter ?

Tout d'abord, il pourrait y avoir un défi par rapport à la production si la demande est plus élevée que prévu. On devra alors réévaluer notre commande initiale avec notre co-packer (embouteilleur). Heureusement, il peut facilement produire une plus grande quantité si nécessaire.

Notre deuxième défi est aussi celui qui nous motive le plus : faire connaître la marque et le produit Oro Rojo. On est déjà en pourparlers avec quelques restaurants et épiceries intéressés à distribuer la sauce dans leurs établissements. De peu à peu, Oro Rojo commencera à saucer notre chère ville natale, et ensuite… le monde!

En gros, on veut être le Red Bull de la sauce piquante et que Oro Rojo soit un jour connu mondialement comme une marque associée au plaisir et à la dolce vita!
