Award winning boutique producers of finely produced chilli sauces, the ingredients in Gringo Killer’s range of handcrafted sauces and condiments are what give each product its own unique flavour and texture, and what owner Margaret Dagger considers to be New Zealand’s tastiest chilli sauces.

The produce used in the range of products is grown by local growers from around New Zealand. The chillies were originally grown in Titirangi, Auckland, and are eco friendly spray free, so that New Zealanders know they are getting the best, with no added preservatives or additives.

“What started as the first Rocoto chilli plant in my medical herb garden was inadvertently the beginning of Gringo Killer. And like a lot of people, I like to know where my food comes from and how it is grown –growing the chillies each season from seed, planting the seedlings, to picking the pods, along with other growers that have the same philosophy as me, knowing we don’t need to use harmful pesticides by letting nature take care of the balance, which is better for your health and better for the planet,” Dagger said.

The sauces can be bought online or as a condiment at Little Sister Café, Henderson, by the bottle from Easy Grow, New Lynn, at The Aussie Butcher, New Lynn, and at Humbug Café, Glen Eden.

For the future, Gringo Killer is in the process of installing a new commercial kitchen in Brick Street, Henderson. The long term goal is to export to America.

“I want to see Gringo Killer on every table in New Zealand, whether it is a café or home.”
