There is a new flavor combination hitting store shelves, that is getting all the buzz… Huy Fong Sriracha Ketchup with Honey. This new ketchup, crafted with the original Huy Fong Sriracha hot chili sauce and honey, is the perfect combination of thick and rich that will add a delicious sweet heat and spicy garlic kick to any dish. “Huy Fong ketchup is the fastest growing specialty ketchup in America”, says Gary Petersen, Vice President - Retail at Red Gold.

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.
In addition to Huy Fong Sriracha Ketchups, 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.
