BFY Food Group finds Best-Tasting Products are Growing Faster with Consumers in 2019


January 21, 2019

Taste and quality outperforms mega brands in the New Year.

Everyone has seen the growth of craft beers and the appeal of better-for-you products in their local grocers.  Well, we are even seeing this trend continue in the most inconspicuous areas such as the condiment aisle of traditional grocery, e-commerce, or your new favorite eatery boasting locally sourced products. Can you say Ketchup?

Who knew? That’s how fun it can be to declare independence from a big brand, and choose a quality company, Red Gold, that guarantees “to produce the freshest-best tasting tomato products in the world.”

This family-owned and operated company is also 100% American-owned, which truly separates Red Gold from the biggest brand in the market. The company focuses on zero-waste production practices, and is committed to support locally owned family farms in the Midwest, where there are sustainable initiatives to protect the planet. Red Gold traces its heritage back to 1942, when it began with only tomatoes. Now, it has grown to offer a wide variety of tomato and ketchup products that are low sodium, organic, non-GMO and/or made with real sugar to meet the needs of ever-changing consumer preferences.

Today, ketchup is King at Red Gold, and the company has two new brands that are currently the two fastest growing ketchup brands in the USA. * Source: IRI Total US Mulo, 52 Weeks Ending 12-30-2018, Unit Sales, Unit Sales % Change

Huy Fong Sriracha Ketchup has led the way with flavor innovation, exceptional taste, national distribution, and the distinction of several awards including the FABI and Chef’s Best. “The combination of sweet heat, garlic, and tomatoes is amazing”, says David Israel, founder of BFY Food Group.

Consumers and chef’s know that taste is key, and that is the reason why Huy Fong Ketchup is the brand leader in spicy ketchups in America, and now exporting to eleven other countries in the world.

In addition to Huy Fong Sriracha, Red Gold tomato ketchup is growing in popularity in all channels and has its own distinct zing and mouthful of flavor. Red Gold ketchup has more tomatoes per once than the biggest brand, maintaining the stance that bigger is not always better. Red Gold has recently showcased its premium line of ketchups at the World Food Championship and will be back in 2019.

So the next time you walk the ketchup isle, don’t be hesitant to declare your freedom and independence from a big brand of ketchup, and consider tasting quality over quantity. Remember Red Gold and Huy Fong Ketchups, and be part of the All-American Family. I know that you will be pleased.
