LOS ANGELES, April 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Cacique® Inc. – the #1 brand of authentic Mexican style cheeses, cremas, and chorizos in the U.S. – announced today the acquisition of El Sol Foods, a maker of homestyle salsas headquartered in Gilbert, Arizona. The acquisition signals the Cacique brand's entrance into the salsa category. It allows Cacique to extend its portfolio of authentic, high-quality Hispanic foods rich in heritage and tradition to even more people across the country.
The acquisition of family-owned El Sol Foods is a testament to Cacique's commitment to offering consumers a breadth of great tasting, authentic Hispanic foods. Distribution of the new Cacique salsa products will begin regionally in the western U.S. this May, with nationwide rollout beginning this summer.
Cacique Homestyle Salsas are handcrafted with fresh produce using a small batch, cold process that guarantees homemade, authentic Mexican flavors in every bite, continuing the tradition that El Sol began more than 30 years ago. Cacique Salsas will be available in nine varieties, including Homestyle, Mild, Medium and Hot, as well as in multiple specialty and Organic Homestyle selections.
