It began with family…

Three generations ago on the island of Trinidad and Tobago the patriarch and matriarch of the Lee Pow family, John and Rose, enrooted in each of their twelve children the importance of perseverance, passion, and discipline in living life on a farm. From sunrise to sunset, they worked hard to nourish the land and, in return, were blessed with all the ingredients necessary to cook their meals- always flavorful, hearty, and often, spicy!   


 When the Lee Pow family moved to America, spicy dishes were used to remember those traditions and the atmosphere of their Caribbean life. Every family gathering, from special occasions to Sunday dinner, there would often be that spicy dish that everyone, including one of her son’s, Vernon, always recalled searching and finding that one “pepper in the pot”.

Birth of Master Pow’s hot pepper sauce...

Master Pow's & Vernon Jr.

20 years ago, on his quest to look for a hot pepper sauce that equaled that sole “pepper in the pot” taste. Vernon realized that he was limited in his choices of finding that one hot pepper sauce that didn’t add in all the extra ingredients; such as: salts, sugars, preservatives, xantham gums, starches, water, etc…and not just focus on the power of the peppers and allow you to enjoy the essence of this beautiful fruit. 

Given no choice but to figure it out on his own, his frustration fueled his passion and he became inspired by the traditional way of preserving hot peppers in the Caribbean- but with a healthier twist. Many recipes later he perfected his own hot pepper sauce by harmoniously blending different chili peppers and adding a dash of apple cider vinegar… Master Pow's hot pepper sauce was born!! 

After a couple of years of asking his son Vernon Jr. and daughter-in-law, Jessica for help. In January 2020 Master Pow’s Co. was officially started as a hot chili pepper company.
