Green World provides bulk herbs and spices to some of the best sauce makers in the country. Some work with fresh herbs while others dry their herbs first before incorporating them into canned, jarred or bottled sauces for consumers, but they all use top ingredients to create spectacular flavors.

Here are four interesting facts about bulk herbs and the sauce industry:

1. Bulk Herbs Can Be Harvested for Sauce-Making All Year Long

Our growers in Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Mexico work year-round to produce the best wholesale organic and conventional herbs for sauce-making. The climate near the equator is conducive to growing fresh spices and herbs all year, so sauce-making never goes out of season. In fact, manufacturers can count on a stable supply and stable prices even when winter strikes the northern hemisphere. Working with suppliers in tropical areas is especially convenient for sauce-makers who prefer to work with fresh versus dried seasonings have access to what they need, when they need it.

2. Sauce-Makers Aren’t Limited to Spaghetti

There are many canned and jarred sauces that include bulk herbs and spices. Top sellers include:

  • Marinara sauce
  • Pesto
  • Pizza sauce
  • Alfredo sauce
  • Salsa
  • Vodka sauce
  • Hot sauce

The flavor of all these sauces is highly dependent on the use of high-quality wholesale herbs and spices. Pesto and salsa require particularly flavorful ingredients since herbs and spices are so high on their lists of ingredients. For this reason, fresh bulk basil, wholesale cilantro, parsley, and oregano are purchased in large quantities by sauce makers.

3. The U.S. Sauce Industry is Growing & Expanding

The U.S. sauces industry recorded $18.6 billion in revenue in 2018, with rapid growth predicted.An increasing desire for ethnic cuisines, a growing immigrant population, healthier lifestyles, and a stronger preference for organic foods all contribute to this projected growth.

We should also note that organic herbs and spices are increasingly important for sauce manufacturers as they strive to meet a growing consumer demand for all-natural and organic products.

4. Hot Sauce is the Fastest-Growing Segment of the Sauce Industry

In 2020, the hot sauce production industry was valued at $1.6 billion. This is in line with an established trend toward the incorporation of more ethnic herbs and spices in American cooking. In fact, the hot sauce industry has grown on average 4.2% per year since 2015.

There are so many unique and intriguing ways to season hot sauce, but some common bulk herbs and spices used in creating these popular condiments include:

  • Cumin
  • Turmeric
  • Garlic
  • Basil
  • Chives
  • Ginger

Because of increasing demand, we recommend that manufacturers order regularly to maintain a steady supply of the wholesale herbs and spices they use in their hot sauce recipes.
