Hungry Volcano was born out of a passion for fiery foods, and the need to spread the Gospel of Fire across Canada and around the world.
You may not know our founder Sam Shivji by name. You are probably more aware of his Hatari Bros. products though. Sauces like Acid Rain and Alberta Crude need no introduction. Sam has been at the forefront of the Canadian hot sauce scene for more than 25 years and has won numerous prizes for his fiery concoctions.
Sam has been a hot sauce fanatic since the age of five. He grew up in Africa where chili peppers grew wild and every meal was accompanied by fresh hot sauce on the table.
Our website was first created in 2003 marketing Hatari Bros., Droolin' Devil and the Uncle Big's Killer Hot Sauce line. In June 2015, we relaunched as Hungry Volcano, and our line-up has grown to over 550 products, some of which are only available through this very website.
Most of the industry heavy hitters are listed here, and we personally try all of the products to make sure they are the cream of the crop. We also assign our own heat ranking to them:
We listen to our customers, and if you have a request for specific product, get in touch and let us know, we'll see if we can source the product for you.
