Kupisa Lugu Peri Sauces

by Kyla Van Heerden

The first bottle of Kupisa was breed in the kitchen fuelled by passion and a fierce mission to develop a great complement for every day and exquisite dishes. Through the material use of African Herbs, Kupisa managed to differentiate itself and create a competitive taste advantage in the market.

The brand name “Kupisa” is coined from the Shona language and means ‘hot’ which highlights the fiery African bird’s eyes chilies found in the sauce.
