Tin Giraffe is a niche food business, specialising in the production of Chipotle Chili sauces, marinades, mayonnaise, rubs, guacamole and various other food products.

We pride ourselves on creating superior-quality natural flavours with a taste sophistication that appeals to a wide market. Attention to detail and taste are paramount. Our highest quality Jalapeño Chilis are grown on a Lowveld farm and are oak-smoked for that lingering warm smoky flavour that makes our Chipotle products so distinctive. No artificial preservatives are used in the manufacture of the Chipotle Chili Sauce to maintain its originality.

Tin Giraffe grows, smokes and dries the volumes of Jalapeño Chilies required to manufacture the range of products available. To meet the growing demand for the products, Tin Giraffe has partnered with reputable values-based organisations in the manufacturing and distribution of the products to retail outlets nationally and ultimately, internationally via export.

Chipotle (pronounced chi –POHT – lay) is Spanish and is derived from “chilpoctli”, a word in the Nahuatl language of the native people of Central Mexico that means “smoked chili”. It is a smoked, dried Jalapeño Chili used primarily in Mexican and Mexican inspired cuisines to give a warm, earthy spiciness and smoky flavour to main dishes as well as marinades, sauces, guacamoles and salsas.
