About Us – Please allow us to introduce ourselves
Sir Kensington’s is a food innovation company, best known for making condiments with character. We work to bring integrity and charm to ordinary and overlooked food. Beginning in 2010, we realized that while food was evolving, condiments weren’t. So, we decided to make them better, starting with ketchup. Since then, we launched mayonnaise, mustard, and Fabanaise, and gained a cult following. Now, you can find our condiments in hundreds of leading restaurants, thousands of leading retailers, and millions of meal kit boxes across the country. But we’re just getting started. We aim to be America’s leading natural condiment brand, and we need your help.
In April of 2017, Sir Kensington’s joined Unilever, the leading progressive global consumer products company. With them, we’re part of a family of global brands helping to define the future of good food and good business. With access to Unilever’s resources and expertise, we will continue to operate independently from our SoHo headquarters.
