Original Redhead Condiments
Original Redhead Condiments wants to expand operations and continue developing products with the taste, and quality you have come to know and love.
The expansion will include the "greening" of the product packaging and the introduction of recipes, and unique ways of using Original Redhead products. Original Redhead Condiments believes in sustainability and is mindful of creating as little impact on the environment whenever possible.
The Ask & The Give
Original Redhead Condiments is seeking $15,000 in order to expand operations. The funds will be used for:
• Equipment in order to automate much of the packaging process including automatic labeling;
• Upgrading to a greener and more effective product package in order to reduce waste, and increase product longevity;
• Continuing research and development to expand the current product line; and
• Educating people on the health benefits of Original Redhead and fermented products.
Additional funds will be used for general operations. Local markets, retail and restaurant locations throughout Edmonton, and eventually Canada will see benefits from your donations.
In return for your support, we have created a variety of fun, and unique rewards to choose from. We hope one piques your interest and raises the fun factor for your current food adventure.
Why Support Original Redhead Condiments?

The Science Behind the Sauces
It’s no secret that eating a diet rich in fermented foods is good for you. Our fermented line of products utilizes a process that preserves food naturally, and creates beneficial enzymes, b-vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids, and several strains of probiotics. Plus, it boosts endorphins and releases serotonin in the brain (the happy chemical), scientifically making you happier.
Our fresh salsas are free of preservatives, excess amounts of salts & sugars, and other harmful additives. We truly believe that fresh tastes better.
