Interview With David Rider
What do you bring to market?
We bring gourmet sauces. We sell:
- Spring roll dipping sauce
- Medium Chili Sauce
- Mild Chili with Garlic (with sugar or sugar-free)
- Hot Chili with Garlic
The spice scale has been described as going from mild to blast off!
All the ingredients come from the Alvarez Organic Farm, an organic farm that also sells at the Proctor Farmers' Market.
Where are the sauces produced?
When are the sauces produced?
Monthly, depending on our inventory.
Tell us about the supplies that you use. Are they local organic, etc.?
We use local and organic fresh ingredients from Alvarez organic farm. Sugar and vinegar is purchased from a local wholesaler.
How/Why is your product unique?
We use family recipes. Our sauces are also unique because of their freshness and our use of local, high quality ingredients. Sister makes it, and she's one of a kind, so the product is, too!
What got you into this industry?
My sister Julie has a passion for food, family, and cooking, so she created the business to bring our family together. We sell our products in the hope of bringing others together over a meal.
Tell us about the process of creating your product.
We pick up the fresh ingredients, de-seed the pppers, blend the ingredients, and then we can the sauce.
What else do you sell?
We are four sisters, and we sell four sauces. We are looking into selling spring rolls and egg rolls, but right now we are only selling our sauces.
Where else can people find your products?
Other farmers' markets.
What do you enjoy about this line of work?
Repeat customers sharing how they've used the sauces. Selling our sauces is like sharing a part of my family with other people and gaining an extended family.
