To provide efficient irrigation systems as well as training on improved agricultural techniques to impoverished rural agricultural communities in Peru. Furthermore, to invest in agricultural technology and training designed to improve crop yields and standards of living for these communities
Tradición Peruana is a social impact company that supports small scale Peruvian chili pepper farmers. Our goal is to support the low-income rural farmers through the sales of Peruvian hot sauces, made from the same ají and rocoto chili peppers they have been harvesting for generations.
Despite the importance of ají and rocoto peppers in Peruvian cuisine, most spicy pepper farmers in Peru remain in precarious socioeconomic conditions, living in impoverished rural communities, with little or no access to modern agricultural technology and training. This is one of the country’s main social problems.
At Tradición Peruana, we strive to alleviate these socioeconomic problems by investing back into these communities in order to improve their standard of living. The sales of our sauces in international markets generate a positive social impact for these small agricultural producers. For every 1,000 bottles of ají and rocoto sauces we sell, we install a drip irrigation system and train farmers working on farms averaging one hectare in area. All our products are 100 percent grown, produced and bottled in Peru.
Our peppers and sauces have unique and extraordinary flavors that can only be found in Peruvian cuisine. Indeed, we produce our sauces focusing on the flavor of the peppers and not solely on their spiciness. Our yellow pepper sauce is made of ají amarillo that is a yellow-orange pepper, the most widely used in our cuisine. Our vegan red sauce is made from rocoto, a red pepper that is the second most widely used pepper in Peruvian cuisine.
