"Victoria is inspired by the energy and authenticity of our hometown of Brooklyn and continues to strive to stay ahead of the latest culinary trends.

"These four new delicious sauces continue the Victoria tradition of using only the best, high-quality ingredients and feature the authentic homemade flavor that sets us apart. We know our consumers are looking for clean, on- trend ingredients and these sauces fit that criteria."
Victoria's Read Your Label movement encourages people to know the ingredients in their food. According to the Nielsen Global Health & Wellness Study, more than half of respondents (57%) are expanding their diets with more natural, fresh foods. However, Victoria's own research shows that pasta sauce buyers still habitually purchase and eat food with preservatives and artificial ingredients. These consumers are surprised at what they find when they are asked to turn around their brand's jar and read the label. Therefore, Victoria wants to help people make healthier lifestyle choices by making them more informed. People need to know what's in their food, and by whom and where it's made. All of these factors impact the way they feed their family. Victoria is also a leader in compliance with the new FDA ruling around communication around added sugar – they never add sugar to any of their sauces. At Victoria, Ingredients Come FirstTM; it was the first major pasta sauce brand to put its ingredients on the front of its label and is now at the vanguard of the Read Your Label movement.
Victoria is asking consumers to share our pledge and join the Read Your Label movement. Consumers can show their support by sharing Victoria's Facebook post or using #ReadYourLabel. For every share or hashtagged post, Victoria will donate $1 (up to $10,000) to Spoons Across America, a not-for-profit organization that teaches children healthy eating habits.
"Spoons Across America is thrilled to collaborate with Victoria Fine Foods and their Read Your Label campaign to bring attention to the importance of knowing what ingredients are in the food we eat. In fact, one of the programs in our comprehensive food education curriculum, Take a Taste with Spoons, teaches children how to read the label on food products so they can make healthy food choices. Through the Read Your Label campaign, Spoons Across America and Victoria Fine Foods will help to make it easier for children, parents, and everyone to make healthy eating choices," says James Grosso, Executive Director, Spoons Across America.
Unlike leading national brands, Victoria never adds water, sugar, paste (tomato byproducts), preservatives or dried ingredients and never compromises taste for processing shortcuts like flash cooking.
