Huy Fong Foods, the maker of the widely popular Sriracha hot sauce, has been ordered by a California jury to pay its former jalapeño pepper supplier $23.3 million in relation to the abrupt dissolution of their working relationship.
On Wednesday, the Ventura County civil court jury penalized the Irwindale-based company for breaking its contract with local firm Underwood Ranches and committing fraud by “misrepresentation and concealing information,” reports the Los Angeles Times.
Sriracha is the hot sauce loved and adored by people around the world, but few have actually been inside the factory where the magic happens.
The fiery Sriracha chili sauce that is instantly recognizable by its iconic red and green bottle is produced at a single location in Irwindale, California.
