Kaitaia Fire began operations in 1989, planting an organic five-acre farm of chili peppers at Doubtless Bay, on the Far North’s East coast. From these humble beginnings grew an operation that now employs five full-time workers, keeps dozens of contract growers busy, and supplies chili sauce from the North Pole to Antarctica and everywhere else in between. Both sauces have been winners in the New Zealand Food Awards and Waha Wera (“The Burning Mouth”) Kiwifruit, and Habanero Pepper sauce was awarded “Best Hot Fruit Sauce” in Chile Pepper Magazine’s prestigious Fiery Food Challenge in Albuquerque New Mexico in 1996, (the Academy Awards for Hot Sauces.)

Waha Wera is the perfect addition to any marinade for barbecues as an enzyme in the kiwifruit used, acts to break down fibres in tougher cuts of meat. Although recently its versatility has also been shown by Japanese consumers who have begun using it as an ice cream topping.
