That’s the “secret” price the Irwindale, California-based company charges for distributors for the standard 28-ounce bottle, Huy Fong Foods founder David Tran tells Marketplace. Considering that the hot sauce comes twelve bottles to a 26-pound case, and each case has a resale value of up to sixtysomething dollars, more people with pickup trucks and some free time should really look into becoming Huy Fong distributors. We have community-supported agriculture, after all, and community-supported fisheries, so someone really needs to step up and make community-supported sriracha a thing. It’s time — sambal oelek, too.
