Fort Worth-based Renfro Foods, known for its award-winning Mrs. Renfro’s Salsa, is now adding a seventh international market—the Philippines, which joins Canada, the Caribbean, England, Scotland, Spain and Australia.
Through a distribution agreement with Chicago-based Color Brands, consumers in the Philippines can now find 16 Mrs. Renfro’s products in Robinsons Supermarket, the Philippines’ top grocery chain. Salsas include: Black Bean, Chipotle Corn, Craft Beer, Garlic, Ghost Pepper, Green, Habanero, Hot, Mango Habanero, Medium, Mild, Raspberry Chipotle, Roasted, and Tequila. Nacho Cheese Sauce products include: Classic, Chipotle and Ghost Pepper.
“The Philippines love Mrs Renfro’s products,” said Harry Dewhirst of Color Brands. “There are 16 flavors currently on the shelves at the top supermarket chain across the country, covering the capital, Manila, and the provinces.”
“This is an exciting expansion for us, said Becky Renfro Borbolla, vice president of Renfro Foods and export sales manager. “Color Brands has done a great job introducing us to the Philippine market.”
Renfro Foods is a third-generation family business founded 78 years ago in Fort Worth, as a packaged spices and pepper sauce business. It later expanded to include syrup, jellies, preserves and chow chow, and then salsa.
