As the hot sauce category continues to expand, and as a result of the brand's particular resonance with Millennial and Hispanic consumers, Cholula is uniquely positioned to broaden its distribution around the world both on shelves and in restaurants.

"We look forward to partnering with Cholula's talented management team to capitalize on the brand's immense whitespace opportunity in the years to come."
