The Pre-Made Salsa Production industry produces refrigerated or shelf-stable salsas purchased by wholesalers, grocery stores and other food service outlets and then sold to consumers. Over the past five years, the industry has experienced increasing revenue as per capita disposable income and consumer demand for Hispanic cuisine has risen. To the benefit of the industry, the nation's Hispanic population is rising and Americans of all ethnicities are expanding their tastes to include cuisines from all over the world. Exports of pre-made salsa from domestic manufacturers are also on the rise, suggesting the United States is now a hub for the global production and distribution of salsa. Looking forward, industry prospects are optimistic. Rising discretionary income enables consumers to purchase a greater volume of snacks and trade up to branded and premium products at retail stores.
