SAUCES, DRESSINGS & MAYONNAISE
Bring Your Condiment Concept to the Table

DRESS IT UP WITH FLAVORFUL CONDIMENTS: SAUCES, DRESSINGS & VEGAN MAYONNAISE


You know what they say: We eat first with our eyes. So, for soup, salad, meat, fish, and more, whether drizzling a sauce, swirling a dressing, or adding a dollop of mayonnaise, most dishes are more appealing when served with a flavorful condiment.

In 2023, the Sauces & Condiments Market was valued at USD 244.53  billion. Today, it continues to grow thanks to leading brands like Hellmann’s, introducing vegan mayo to the USA in 2016.

Across the pond, in 2018, Tesco picked up the baton and ran with it, releasing the UK’s first plant-based condiment and introducing the Wicked Kitchen line—a range that gained a retail footprint growth of nearly 400 percent!

The flavor-forward Wicked Kitchen brand teams up with some of the biggest names in retail. The line-up includes SOK in Finland, Kroger and Sprouts in the USA, and Asda and Tesco in the UK. The current condiment collection, amongst others, includes Asian-style BBQ sauce, Pink Beetroot Pesto Sauce, and Wicked Siracha sauce.

If herb-infused dressings float your boat, or you have an idea for a gourmet sauce or vegan mayo product, our expert team can bring your recipe idea to life, making the impossible possible!

THE MAGIC INGREDIENT


You will notice that vegan mayo, dressings, and sauces like ketchup and mustard all have one ingredient in common: vinegar! Now, this isn’t a coincidence. Vinegar plays a vital role in helping make these products shelf-stable. A shelf-stable condiment can be stored safely at room temperature.

Vinegar contains acetic acid. This substance has a low pH value and helps create conditions that suppress the growth of bacteria. Many condiment brands may choose to go one step further in the pursuit of food safety, though by heat treating a condiment to destroy any potential pathogens and lengthen shelf life.

One key benefit of creating a shelf-stable product is logistical ease! If your condiment can be kept at room temperature, there’s no need to invest in refrigerated storage and transportation methods.

Food Scientist for Hire will help ensure that your condiment innovation is tasty and complies with country-specific regulations and food safety standards. More importantly, our expert team can conduct microbiological lab tests to maximize shelf life and stability.
