Winston-Salem, NC: TW Garner Food Company has partnered with two firms who will work to bring its hot sauce, wing sauce, salsa and tortilla strips greater visibility in Canada.
Acosta Sales and Marketing Canada – the Canadian arm of the US-based outsourced sales and marketing agency – will serve as broker for the Texas Pete line of hot sauces and condiments and the Green Mountain Gringo line of salsas and tortilla strips; and Thomas, Large & Singer Inc. (TLS) will manage distribution logistics.
"The two companies will be working together to develop ongoing effective programs and promotions that will help drive growth in our mutual business," said Steve DeCorte, general manager-sales, for TW Garner Food Company.
Initially, Canadian consumers will be able to buy the 6- and 12-ounce versions of the original Texas Pete Hot Sauce, the 6-ounce Texas Pete Hotter Hot Sauce, and the 6-ounce Texas Pete Garlic Hot Sauce. Other products will be added over time, as demand and distribution grows.
Products will initially be available along both Canadian coasts, as well as in Ontario and Quebec provinces.
Consumers who don't wish to wait for TW Garner products to arrive at their store may visit the websites of the respective brands, at: www.TexasPete.com and www.GreenMountainGringo.com, for mail-order options.
