New Fair Trade Chili Peppers!


Organic Chili Peppers now certified Fair Trade!


Through an exciting partnership that has been long in the works, some of our favorite organic chili pepper products are now Fair Trade Certified through IMO and the Fair For Life program! We are thrilled to be able to bring these to you and to support this wonderful organic farm:

Organic Fair Trade Certified Cayenne Powder

Organic Fair Trade Certified Chili Flakes

Organic Fair Trade Certified Whole Chilies


Unlike traditional Fair Trade programs that merely certify products, the Fair For Life program is much more thorough because it reviews Mountain Rose Herbs from top to bottom to evaluate and audit our working conditions, labor practices, environmental programs, social benefits, and our company's transparency. Not only does the Fair For Life program certify our entire company, but it also reviews and monitors the origins of our products to ensure complete compliance with the program. You can visit our website to learn more about the Fair For Life - Fair Trade Program and view a copy of our Fair Trade Certificate. Enjoy the peppers!
