The Salsa Company was built on offering the highest quality and value in its authentic hot salsa, filled with the locally grown and organic ingredients. Knowledgeable consumers were looking for authentic products, filled with the best ingredients grown locally. The more sophisticated consumer is looking for something fresher and more authentic than canned or jarred salsa. The Salsa Company started offering its unique product with hot and mild salsa. It has plans to add extra hot salsa and various specialty salsas using local fruits such as peaches, blueberries and apples. Eventually, the company plans to offer other products such as a private labeled corn chip and taco sauces. Constantly striving to supply locally grown foods with organic growers, we continually review what is available in the marketplace, and what isn't. Improving on what is available and providing new products and services to the areas of need will assure our success in a market driven by consumer demand.
