Just one company, Underwood Ranches in Camarillo, Cali., grows the chiles used to make Sriracha. And Huy Fong Foods only buys from them. Below, workers dump hand-picked chiles into crates.

Sriracha is originally/still made in Thailand and used there today. The chilies were imported to the US to grow and make the sauce. There are towns named Camarillo and Rosemead in California (CA or Calif.) I have no idea were "Cali" is.
