    Fresh Carrots, Fresh Celery,
    Fresh Serrano + Jalapeno Peppers,
    Dunbar Roasted Red Bell Peppers,
    House-Brined Pearl Onions
    and Lindsay Spanish Olives


    We begin with USA-grown Kosher sweet peppers roasted to perfection.

    Then add a mix of fresh and brined vegetables.

    We go to great lengths to bring you the best and freshest GMO-free condiments, like HERO Giardiniera. In fact, we kick-started the very first commercially available Non-GMO "cocktail onion" in the USA, because we couldn't find a GMO-free onion to source otherwise.

    Our roasted red bell peppers come from Dunbars, a family-owned processor of bell peppers in the Carolinas, and we use only Lindsay Spanish Olives, which are diced and hand-chopped before tossing with our fresh produce.

    Thanks to the Sound Produce family, who delivers the freshest produce to us as per our specifications. Depending on the time of year, these come from California and Washington from Taylor Farms.


    For our refrigerated version of HERO, available in bulk for commercial use, we use Bella Vina Expeller Pressed GMO-free Canola Oil because in our many months of testing, this performed the best in foodservice applications. For our pantry (shelf stable) retail version, we use San Giuliano Italian Grapeseed Oil as this by-product of the wine making industry is growing in preference by North American consumers and is derived from a sustainable farming source we want to support.


    We use white wine vinegar with no added sulfites, and when it's all married with a touch of salt, it brings out a crunchy, savory, briney umami taste experience.


    HERO is lovingly handpack in to 8 lb wide-mouth gallon PPE containers for foodservice (refrigerated), 8 oz non-BPA PETE (refrigerated; available at festivals only) and 12 oz glass jars (shelf stable) for e-commerce retail. We are moving to 2/4 lb pouches for foodsevice to lower our wholesale price and to lessen our impact on the environment.

    We are working to bring this product to USDA organic certification. In the meantime, HERO is GMO-free as tested by IEH Laboratories, an approved lab of the Non-GMO Verification Project.

    We are committed to bringing you the best tasting condiments while positively impacting society.


    P.S. HERO's jar is an awesome re-use container! Store anything in it! The stickers come off easily so you can make it your own. When you don't need it, pass it on or rinse and recycle. Thanks to sophisticated curbside recycling programs, the non-BPA jars are recyclable and so are their lids,* while the glass jars are also recyclable.


    *Thank You City of Seattle and states like Connecticut who have mandatory recycling programs!


  • Seattle Made
    Authentic Giardiniera
    now available
    in Pacific Northwest

    Giardiniera (pronounced Jar-din-air) began in Italy, about two centuries ago, as vegetable melange consisting of brined produce harvested from local farms. It was created as a celebration of vegetable-growers' bounty. Now it is enjoyed from Piedmont to Chicago to New Orleans, and now the Pacific Northwest!
