Unilever is acquiring Sir Kensington’s, a New York-based condiment maker. The mission-driven Sir Kensington’s was a pioneer in condiments sold in the organic and natural marketplace with a product line that includes award-winning mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise and vegan mayo made from aquafaba called Fabanaise.
Sir Kensington’s, which has experienced strong growth in the last four years, aligns with Unilever’s vision to make sustainable living commonplace.
“We are excited to bring Sir Kensington’s into the Unilever family. Their mission to bring ‘integrity and charm to ordinary and overlooked food’ is very much in line with our Unilever Sustainable Living Plan,” said Kees Kruythoff, president, Unilever North America.
Unilever is committed to supporting a transforming food industry by producing food that tastes good, does good and doesn’t cost the Earth.
“We’re honored to partner with such a progressive and purpose-driven company in this next chapter,” said Mark Ramadan, CEO & co-founder, Sir Kensington’s.
Scott Norton, co-founder, Sir Kensington’s, added, “Working with Unilever will allow us to more rapidly expand distribution while holding true to our values as we help define the next generation of good food.”
Co-Founders Mark Ramadan and Scott Norton will continue in their roles at Sir Kensington’s.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The deal is expected to close in the next few weeks.
