Arcobasso Foods' Drink Mix Brand Earns a Platinum and Two Golds from SIP International Consumer Tasting Awards
Arcobasso Foods, a leading producer of custom dressings, sauces, and beverage drink mixes for the restaurant and food industry, was recently honored by the Spirits International Prestige (SIP) Awards. Arcobasso's premium line of Major Peters' Bloody Mary mixes took a Platinum Best of Class for its Hot & Spicy flavor, as well as Gold Awards for its Major Peters' Original and The Works.
"The SIP Awards validate the exceptional taste and value of the Major Peters' line, which is part of what attracted us to the brand," commented Mark Miner, partner and senior vice president of sales for Arcobasso Foods. The Major Peters' brand of Bloody Mary mixes, made with 94 percent real tomato juice, is positioned as a premium-tasting Bloody Mary mix at a value price point. The Major Peters' brand was acquired by Arcobasso Foods in 2013 from ConAgra to complement the company's well-established presence in the dressings and sauce industries.
The company, based in St. Louis, Missouri, manufactures custom and private label sauces and dressings for well-known brands of restaurants and convenience stores nationwide packaged in a variety of options from glass to PET and in sizes ranging from one ounce portion packs to 2,000 pound totes. The Major Peters' line consists of Bloody Mary mixes in three flavors, including The Works and Hot & Spicy.
