Pacific Foods’ Organic Hummus and Salsa
Pacific Foods, a company most known for its soups, broths and non-dairy beverages, is expanding into the snacking category this year with two offerings: Organic Hummus and Salsa Con Queso. Both are packaged in the brand’s signature Tetra Recart BPA-free cartons, allowing the shelf-stable dips to be conveniently positioned near the chips and jarred salsas, which is a first for a nationally distributed hummus.
The hummus comes in three flavors: Classic, Roasted Garlic and Roasted Red Pepper. The gluten-free and vegetarian salsa con queso leaves artificial flavors and preservatives at the door while still providing big cheese flavor by using real ingredients. It is made with real sharp cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses, fresh chopped jalapeños, roma tomatoes, red bell peppers and crème fraiche.
Pacific’s hummus is now on shelves at select Whole Foods Markets and other natural grocers nationwide and its salsa con queso is available exclusively at Whole Foods Markets nationwide, with distribution expanding throughout the year. The suggested retail price for a 12.75-oz. container is $3.39 to $4.99.
