Sriracha Must Pay $23.3 Million to Jalapeño Pepper Farmer

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.
