The Chilli Oil Company

The Chilli Oil Company carefully select the most exciting chillies on the planet, blend with a peppery Spanish olive oil, we create a wonderful array of premium flavoured chilli oils.

Our Story

The company was founded in 2013 by Mike and Fiona Doyne-Ditmas. Initial seeds of the company were started thirty years ago when we began creating small batches of chilli oil for use by ourselves and as gifts for family and friends. It was after a few years of great reception that we began refining the process with the aim of making a profitable, yet fun, business.

Over several years we’ve developed particular techniques to unlock the flavours and heat embedded within each variety of chilli. With our range continuing to expand, it has become apparent through feedback at food festivals, from trusted friends and data from online sales, that our product has growing potential.

More recently with production running at capacity, it was clear that more hands would be required to make the most of the opportunity presented by the flourishing consumer appetite. This prompted the involvement of the five kids and their growing families, as well as a host of close friends who are dedicated to the product and have been extremely generous with their contributions and expertise.

We are a family run business and we appreciate the fundamental role that food plays in family life. Over the years we have been brought closer by food, cooking together, and a love of chilli. The company now exists as a medium through which we can engage with each other and share in our endeavour to inspire others to enhance their own lives through collective experiences of food, and developing the role chilli can play within that.
