How long have you been in business?
My Family has been in business for over 22 years. My BC company, IQ Balance Gourmet/Hotarusha, was founded in 2014.
Why did you decide to open your business?
My Grandma created some great healthy sauces for her ten kids, growing up at the foot hills of Kilimanjaro in a village called Arusha. So as I was looking for a business opportunity in British Columbia, Canada, I decided to join my family and create really healthy & spicy sauces using my Grandma’s recipes.
What is your business known for?
Mild to Hot, healthy gourmet sauces.
