Hot Sauce Production
The Hot Sauce Production industry produces spicy sauces made from chili peppers and other ingredients which are then sold to retailers, wholesalers and other food manufacturers. Following exponential gains in the early 2000s, the industry has settled into more moderate growth in the five years to 2018. Demand for hot sauce has continued to grow steadily, boosted by positive demographic consumption trends, a growing number of hot sauce producers and brands, as well as rising demand from the foodservice and grocery sectors. Although the domestic market has become somewhat saturated, strong export sales have continued to propel the industry forward during the five-year period. The outlook for domestic hot sauce producers remains largely positive, particularly as demand for US-made condiments continues to rise in export markets. Whereas the previous five years were characterized by increasing market acceptance and usage of hot sauces, the next five years will be characterized by growth in per capita consumption and increasing competition from foreign manufacturers and new industry entrants.
The Hot Sauce Production industry manufactures spicy sauce made from chili peppers and other ingredients. These products are then packaged and sold directly to consumers or distributed to grocery wholesalers, supermarkets, specialty food stores and foodservice contractors.
