RUTLAND — Vermont Maple Sriracha recently started making its latest food creations in a new kitchen space at the Vermont Farmers Food Center at 251 West St. in Rutland.
The company received its kitchen license for the space in early June. It has been leasing a warehouse space at the Vermont Farmers Food Center since October.
Jeff Levine, owner of Levinsky’s Top Shelf Foods — formerly called Pioneer Bean — will also be using Maple Sriracha’s new 500-square-foot kitchen to make his products.
Vermont Maple Sriracha’s famous sriracha sauce will continue to be made at a kitchen facility in Sunderland for the time being, according to co-founder Jackson Whelan. Currently, the new kitchen in Rutland is being used to make the company’s Srirachashews (cashews) and its new Srirachanuts (peanuts). Levine will start making his hummus and pesto there, as well.
