5 Companies Selling Mouthwatering Condiments

Many meals just aren't complete without the delectable addition of creamy, flavorful condiments. Whether you're a ketchup fan or prefer a spicy chutney, it's no question that the right sauce can elevate an otherwise simple dish. This list, in no particular order, shares some companies making condiments that pack a punch.

The #1 entry is Duke's. The company is well-known for its mayonnaise, which it has been making using the same recipe since the early 20th century. It creates two light versions of its signature spread, one of which includes olive oil. Both have reduced calories and fat. Eugenia Duke started producing the original mayonnaise in 1917, in Greenville, South Carolina.

Inspired by the barbecuing traditions beloved throughout the American South, Duke's line of Southern Sauces includes condiments for marinating and dipping. The Mississippi Comeback sauce blends Duke's mayonnaise with chilis and savory spices. It is suggested for use with hushpuppies, chicken tenders, and fried pickles.

Coming in at #2, we present the Hawkshead Relish Company, producers of preserves made in the eponymous village in England's Lake District. All of its items are made by hand using traditional open pans, and are free from nuts, gluten, and additives. In addition, the condiments are all vegetarian, with some being vegan-friendly.

Hawkshead offers a number of seasonal preserves for Christmastime, such as marmalades and chutneys spiced with flavors like ginger, apple, and lemon. The company's Westmoreland chutney, its best-selling, features dates, prunes, apricots, and more.

At #3, we have Rubies in the Rubble. This condiments brand rescues aesthetically-challenged fresh fruits and vegetables from being discarded by supermarkets, and then turns them into relishes, compotes, and sauces. The company is based in London, England.

Rubies in the Rubble's range of ketchups and relishes are made with produce sourced directly from farms, while its mayonnaise is made with aquafaba, a plant-based egg alternative that is usually thrown away. Founder Jenny Costa, a native of Scotland, has been featured on TEDxCountdown and elsewhere.

Next up, at #4, we present San-J International, a company dedicated to the manufacture of tamari soy sauce and other Asian-inspired condiments. While initially established in Mie, Japan, San-J built the first United States-based tamari brewing plant in Henrico, Virginia.

The company's sauces include Szechuan, Thai Peanut, Orange, Korean Barbeque, and Hoisin. It also sells a miso soup mix and several flavors of brown rice cracker, including a tamari sesame. San-J's tamari is made without artificial preservatives, flavors, or color added, and it is non-GMO verified by the Non-GMO Project.

Last but not least, at #5, we present Oliviers & Co., founded in Mane, France. It makes olive oils, vinegar, and other Mediterranean food items. Its line of condiments includes pestos, nut spreads, tapenades, and chutneys. Many of its oils are infused with various flavors like garlic, lemon, and truffles.

Oliviers & Co. has a line of sauces for cooking, including caponata, norma, and a porcini mushroom cream sauce, meant to be used with pasta, meat filets, risottos, and eggs. The company also makes skincare items, utilizing its olive oil to act as a moisturizing agent in its soaps.
