ABOUT YELLOWBIRD FOODS
Yellowbird Foods is a homegrown line of spicy condiments from Austin, Texas renowned for its variety of hot sauces with unique flavor combinations. Founded in 2012 by George Milton, a musician with a culinary curiosity, and Erin Link, an artist with a passion for plants, Yellowbird has become a major player in the craft condiment market and is currently ranked as a top seller in Whole Foods Market and Amazon.
Yellowbird is named for the only creature known to have a natural "immunity" to spicy peppers –– the bird. One species embodies the brand's intention to perpetuate nature, nourishment, passion, and determination. The Asian Golden Weaver — a small yellow bird native to Thailand — eats piquín peppers whole and propagates new plants by passing the seeds as they fly. The peppers are so spicy they ward off predators, keeping the little birds safe, full, and certain of their next meal.
