If you require specifications that differ from the above, we can be quite flexible. We often provides sizes other than standard ones. Further, we can provide peppers, both green and red, that are diced as well as slices and strips. We can also stuff peppers with other products such as olives.
 
MDFH works with a dedicated group of more than forty (40)  farmers located throughout Honduras and Nicaragua to supplies the highest quality raw pepper. MDFH provides these reliable farmers with seedlings from our own greenhouses so we can better control and influence the quality and timing of harvesting. MDFH's staff provides comprehensive and integrated support as well as technical assistance to these growers. The result is a pepper that is consistently uniform in size and texture and meets our highest quality standards.
 
Located in the central part of the country, the Comayagua, Honduras plant is a state-of-the-art facility that underwent significant expansion and improvement in 2013 to improve both efficiency and quality. The processing complex receives raw peppers during all twelve months of the year. After sorting, grading, cleaning and testing, the peppers are processed into a variety of products of varying sizes and operates 52 weeks per year. After packaging, the processed peppers are ready for export to the United States, Europe and elsewhere.
