History of El Yucateco

Salsas y Condimentos El Yucateco , a company created in 1968 by Mr. Priamo J. Gamboa, started out as a small family business devoted to the production of homemade habanero pepper sauces.

Nowadays it is a world-renowned company, pioneer in producing and exporting fiery habanero pepper sauces, as well as a variety of traditional Mexican products to the U.S., Europe, Asia and Oceania. In addition, we have a modern manufacturing facility and our own Habanero and Annatto fields, which are our main raw materials.

In 1999, the international magazine industry, the Fiery Foods Magazine, honored with a 1st Place in taste and presentation to our sauce KutBil-Ik among a sample of 400 brands worldwide.
