Oregon’s 88-year-old specialty condiment manufacturer is adding to its Beaver Brand™ line with an all-natural Stone Ground Mustard

“Domonic Biggi, CEO of Beaverton Foods, said the fourth-generation, family owned and operated company is continually looking for ways to improve its products’ ingredients. The new 12 oz. Beaver Brand Stone Ground Mustard features all-natural mustard oil and no preservatives. It is also Certified Gluten-Free® and SRP is $2.99-$3.29.

“This is our single best-selling specialty mustard and in the past two years it surpassed our No. 1 selling Creamy Style Horseradish,” Biggi said. “We are loyal to our outstanding condiment recipes. However, we want to be as responsive as possible as it relates to taste, quality, and consumer demand.”

The company entered the all-natural category with its Beaver Brand Gourmet Ketchup in 2010. Beaverton Foods will feature the Beaver Brand Stone Ground Mustard and other specialty condiments at booth #4577 at the Natural Products Show Expo West, March 1012, at the Anaheim Convention Center, CA and Summer Fancy Food Show in New York.

According to Supermarket News’ 13th annual Survey of Center Store Performance, specialty foods are a good way for grocers to compete.

Specialty food sales hit $120.5 billion in the U.S. last year, noted by The State of the Specialty Food Industry report, produced by the Specialty Food Association and Mintel.
