Food Manufacturers, Retailers Launch “Affordable Luxury” Condiments

January 31, 2011: 11:05 AM EST

Food manufacturers and private label retailers are releasing products that play to the “affordable luxury” mindset that strengthened with the economic downturn.  One manifestation is a growing range of upscale condiments that enhance home-cooked meals, something that became more prevalent as consumers cut costs. Examples in this category include the Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co. private-label line, The Food Emporium Trading Co., which includes international specialties, culinary garnishes, ketchup and mustards, and Barhyte Specialty Foods sauces and condiments. A Barhyte Specialty Foods spokesperson notes the growing demand by consumers for condiments with fruitier and spicier flavors.
