Ochsner Innovation Stage
TABASCO® brand products are made by McIlhenny Company, founded by Edmund McIlhenny in 1868 on Avery Island, La. It was here that he developed the recipe for TABASCO® Original Red Pepper Sauce, which has been passed down from generation to generation. To this day, the company is still family-owned and -operated on that same island.
Today, TABASCO® products are sold in more than 165 countries and territories around the world and labeled in 22 languages and dialects. This begs an important question: How does a 100-year-old company become a worldwide brand while continuing to maintain its local ties, cultural heritage and reputation?
