Unilever has agreed to acquire Sir Kensington’s, a New York-based condiment maker. Sir Kensington’s is a pioneer and leader in condiments sold in the organic and natural marketplace. Having seen strong growth the past four years, the product line now includes award-winning mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise and a ground-breaking vegan mayo made from aquafaba called Fabanaise. Launched in 2010, Sir Kensington’s is dedicated to using the finest, sustainably sourced ingredients. Sir Kensington’s mission, and its products, align with Unilever’s vision to make sustainable living commonplace and will complement the company’s current portfolio of products in its foods category.

“We are excited to bring Sir Kensington’s into the Unilever family. Their mission to bring ‘integrity and charm to ordinary and overlooked food’ is very much in line with our Unilever Sustainable Living Plan,” explains Kees Kruythoff, president of Unilever North America. “Sir Kensington’s is an innovative business with outstanding products and a leader in the organic and natural marketplace. We look forward to leveraging our joint understanding of food trends and consumer preferences to significantly grow the business.”

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The deal is expected to close in the next few weeks.
