The economy has caused consumers to eat at home more frequently. Products that make food prep easier are more popular than ever with consumers.
A recent study from Mintel International revealed that U.S. retail sales of cooking sauces and marinades saw a 20% spike between 2005 and 2010. Sales of the products are expected to increase by another 19% by 2015.
Ethnic sauces, barbecue sauces and refrigerated/frozen sauces are among the most popular.
