“Homade” Has a New Home!

Port Reading, NJ (May 18, 2015) 

homadeAllied Old English of Port Reading, New Jersey has acquired Homade Brand Chili Sauce from Ventura Foods effective April 20th. Details of the transaction were not disclosed.

Homade is an all natural sweet and tangy chili sauce packaged in a distinctive spherical bottle with an angled label that gives it a homemade look. The brand is a synergistic fit within the specialty food company owned by the Fred Ross family. Allied owns a dozen specialty niche brands within their portfolio including Asian Sauces (Sun Luck, Dai Day and Ah So Chinese barbecue sauce), Meat Glaze ( Saucy Susan) Premium Jam (Sorrell Ridge) and Molasses (Plantation) segments.

In an interview Fred Ross explained, “We plan to expand the Homade brand vertically into specialty niches and horizontally across national distribution. We believe that our specialty condiment packaging will benefit from that ball shaped bottle. Homade Chili Sauce isa sophisticated substitute for Ketchup on hamburgers and is delicious with grilled fish, steak or pork.”
