Where is paprika cultivated?

ofi's proprietary paprika seed is grown by farmer partners who have been working with us for decades these grower partnerships are at the center of our agricultural expertise. 

Chile harvest starts in September and continutes north through December. Once harvested, the chilies are transported to our processing facility in Las Cruces, New Mexico for cleaning, washing and drying. 

Once dried, the chilies are ground into powder and stored in Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) and kept in cold storage to preserve the color and flavor. When producing the finished goods, we blend batches of ground paprika to match a desired ASTA level. The ASTA level determines the amount of color that is extracted in oil or fat, the larger the number the brighter the color.
