We Make Your Brand Better

Our pepper purees are the not-so-secret ingredient all the brands are talking about. Large and gourmet sauce producers choose our products because we provide the highest quality pepper mash and distribute it with the utmost efficiency. The flavors you need, when you need them.

That’s what you get with Louisiana Pepper Exchange.

Industrial Applications

We are a vertically integrated company of pepper specialists, building bridges between unique flavors and curious consumers. Long term relationships with our suppliers and a network of local, small-tract farming families in South and Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean allow us to source specific pepper varieties to our exacting specifications and quality standards.

Industrial Pepper Availability

We can track a pepper from seed to table, including where it was picked, by whom, and how long it rested in its home country before shipping, packaging, and delivery.

Pepper Puree

Our “Ready To Eat” product is an aromatic and flavor-packed puree that is fully cooked and enhanced with a dash of vinegar and a pinch of salt. Our customers and friends use this cooked pepper puree to enhance recipes while cooking or by applying directly to salsas, BBQ sauces, wing sauces and so much more.

Pepper Mash

Hot Pepper Mash is mashed or ground up peppers, which are fermented both to preserve them and to add flavor. Sauce makers use pepper mash as a base ingredient for hot sauce and many other food products. Mash is an uncooked product.

In my 26 years in the sauce business, I have depended on multiple suppliers for my pepper needs. Because more than one of those organizations evolved into more bother than worth, I want to commend LA Pepper Exchange for exceeding all of them in quality, price, variety, consistency, and customer service. I waited four years to give this assessment because I had been fooled before and did not want to give an undeserved review.
Thank you for meeting my expectations and inspiring me to give your company top marks in every area that counts.

We’ve been working with Louisiana Pepper Exchange since we started
our company in 2018 based on strong recommendations from others. We use their mashes in many of our products, and have always been impressed by the consistency and quality. Their service is fast and
professional, and they are a key supplier that has helped make our
company successful. I look forward to many more years working with LPE.
