Crystal Hot Sauce

Crystal Hot Sauce is still produced by family-owned company Baumer Foods, 92 years after Alvin Baumer bought a fruit syrup company on Tchoupitoulas Street. Included in the purchase was a recipe for Crystal Pure Louisiana Hot Sauce. The rest, as they say, was history.

Baumer Foods now offers 11 different sauces, all of which are produced and bottled under one roof – the company’s 196,000-square-foot factory in Reserve, La. Here, workers bottle 2,000 cases of sauce a day, four days a week.
