About Us
Goodlands Food Co. is a small but fast-growing hot sauce & condiments company based in Philadelphia, PA. We offer seasonally-inspired hot sauces for people who love flavor, with a variety of flavor profiles and a range of heat levels. Goodlands started out of a community garden plot at the Woodlands Cemetery, where our founder, Anna Dausman, first grew ghost peppers and began recipe testing from her garden.

Goodlands now primarily sources from local farms & producers as often as possible. We do our best to honor the people and places that bring us such remarkable ingredients, and cultivate a hard-working but playful environment in our kitchen and at markets.

Our mission is to bring people closer together by offering sauces that spark conversation, while supporting the region’s incredible producers. Our core values are quality, creativity, community, and consistency.
