We love finding farmers that grow chili peppers locally. If you’re interested in growing chili peppers for us here are a few guidelines along with more information on the process.

We pay a fair market value per lb. and shipping fees. We suggest using Regional Rate USPS B and C boxes. The B box can hold 10lbs ( About $6 to Maui ) and the C box can hold up to 25lbs ( $15 postage to Maui ). These boxes need to be order online for FREE from the post office here: USPS.com

We have a grower that we buy regularly from on the Big Island. Over the last six months we’ve bought around $600 worth of peppers from them. If you can’t provide that amount we encourage people to plant more plants so that we can buy them from you in the future. We only want naturally organic grown peppers, no pesticides or chemicals on the peppers. We don’t require organic certification yet.

Please let me know if you have any questions by emailing us here: [email protected]. We’d love to make this a long term business relationship.

On all of our labels it states to refrigerate after opening. This is due to different environments for storage that we have no control over. The fruit based sauces definitely need to be refrigerated once opened. This is because we use fresh fruit to make our sauces with no synthetic preservatives.

We personally don’t refrigerated our supply of non fruit sauces. We store them in a dry, cool place like all of our other spices. We feel they’re enjoyed best at room temperature.

Orders are packed on Tuesday & Fridays, & shipped on Wednesdays & Saturdays, and it takes between 3 to 7 days to arrive to the Mainland US or Canada, approximately 5 to 7 days to Japan, 7 to 10 days to Europe and 10 to 14 days to Australia and the Middle East.

We have no control over shipping fees. The price is what we’re charged. The customer is responsible to pay any customs fees, duties or taxes your country charges upon entry.

Adoboloco is all natural and does not use any thickeners, synthetic oils or substances to keep it suspended and thick. To some this is a new concept but in reality it’s been used for 1000’s of years. We use the whole pepper when making our sauce, including the natural oils in each chili pepper. You’ll especially notice the oil in the Bangkok sauce because we use very dark green Thai Chilies to make the sauce. In the process the oil that is released is a very dark green almost black chili oil. All chili peppers contain this oil. If the pepper is orange the oil is orange, if the chili pepper is red, the chili oil will be red. The Thai Chili and the Hawaiian Chili both have a higher concentration of oil than most other peppers. This is why you see the oil float to the top of the bottle, similar to the way Italian dressing or balsamic vinegar and oil separate.

As a small family business we donate on a local level to non-political, non-religious community efforts throughout the year. Once a year we also have our FREE BOTTLE DAY.

Our hot sauce is hot, but not that hot. Due to extreme weather conditions we’ve had reports of bottles freezing and breaking while in a mailbox or at the front door waiting to be picked up. Please notify your post person not to leave your package in the elements. We are not responsible for frozen, broken bottles due to your local weather conditions. Please report it immediately to the post person and make an insurance claim on it. You’ll have to keep the damaged product and packaging for evidence, do not throw it away. All packages have an automatic amount of insurance that will cover the cost to reorder.

Thank you so much for your interest, we appreciate the thought. Unfortunately early on and being new to this business we had to put a policy in place, not to send out free samples to people asking to review our sauces. As you can imagine being a very small company, it would get very expensive for us to send samples to every person requesting samples to do reviews.

We’re very small, only my wife and 3 kids running this company. I wish we could afford to send samples to everyone that requested them but we can’t. Hope you get a chance to try them some time in the near future. We’re rapidly expanding our reach across Hawaii and the lower 48. Please click here to view our map of locations.

If you still feel you should receive samples for a review please email Tim here with your request, along with all points of contact. This would include your YouTube Channel, Instagram, Facebook Page, Website, Twitter, Email and Phone Number.

On the label of every bottle we have this note: Adoboloco sauce is produced in small batches and can vary in color and slight flavor depending on each local crop. We never use additives or coloring. This sauce is 100% naturally ONOlicious.

At the end of each growing season for certain peppers, especially Thai Chili Peppers they’re all picked together, some are red and some are green. This in turn makes the hot sauce the brownish color that some batches, depending on the time of year have.
