Food Safety at its Finest

At ofi’s Deming facility quality food safety is paramount. Like many of ofi’s production facilities, this location has a BRC A certification. The strategic location of this plant within 10 hours of major growing regions not only provides access to a reliable supply of peppers but allows greater control over the supply chain. With greater control over the supply chain, the team can minimize environmental impact and lower the probability of spoilage, while also increasing their flexibility so they can meet customer needs quickly and easily.

Commitment to Sustainability

Sustainability is one of ofi’s top priorities and our Deming facility is no exception. For example, grower partners utilize drip irrigation to conserve water usage – this could lead to a 30% water reduction in water usage and involves less electricity. But our commitment to lowering our environmental impact doesn’t stop there - organic waste from the plant is used for animal feed. Additionally, processing water is cleaned and then recycled to irrigate crops.  

Spicy Foods are Trending

It’s no secret that spicy foods are trending right now! Just take a look around your local grocery store or restaurant menu - chances are you will find plenty of options that have a bit of kick to them! In fact, according to Kalsec’s Spicy Perceptions Report, 95% of American consumers enjoy some level of heat in food. In 2020, Mexican food surpassed Italian food as Americans’ favorite ethnic cuisine. Taking all of these insights into consideration, ofi’s Customer Solution Center can help brands create flavorful products that consumers are craving.


If you're looking for high-quality green chiles and jalapenos with a commitment to sustainability behind them then look no further – we have what you need here.
