Company Spotlight: KYVAN™ Foods

 

 

KYVAN® Foods is a line of soul food and tailgating food, created by NFL Pro, Reggie Kelly and his wife, Sheila.

Cooking is a way of life in the South and nobody knows that better than NFL Pro Reggie Kelly, owner of KYVAN® Foods. Reggie grew up in Aberdeen, MS and played football at Mississippi State University. He also excelled at the Pro level by playing 13 years in the NFL with the Cincinnati Bengals and the Atlanta Falcons. Even though Reggie has traveled the world, he has not forgotten his southern roots, one of which consists of great cooking…a tradition passed down from generation to generation. Reggie explains, “Since I was a little boy, cooking in my household has been an event within itself and my family is a big reason why I love to cook. Growing up, they would always tell me, “Reggie, when you cook, make sure you do it with love.” “My family believed that great meals should be prepared in such a way that once eaten, it would touch your “SOUL”. I gathered that I should cook in such a way that first time visitors would feel welcomed and feel as though they are a part of my family.”

Reggie ‘took to heart’ his family’s advice especially when He and his wife Sheila held football camps in their hometown of Aberdeen. The football camps were designed to reward the kids who have excelled academically in the classroom. He also invited fellow NFL stars & coaches to volunteer and make the events special for the kids. True to form, after the camps, Reggie’s family cooked for the volunteers and they raved about the flavor and goodness of the meals. “Their responses were overwhelming and brought a smile to my face when they expressed their enjoyment of the meals and the difficulty of finding flavorful meals like these anywhere else”, said Reggie. Those compliments started the ‘wheels to churn’ in my mind and a light bulb flashed, prompting my wife and I to ‘come up’ with a great idea… a Soul Food Line!”

Reggie’s NFL peers were definitely inspirational in the birth of KYVAN® Foods because their expressions reminded him that people have always enjoyed good food, especially the kind that touches the soul! And since people from all walks of life really enjoy Down South cooking, Reggie thought, why not bring a piece of the south to their homes, compliments of his family. So Reggie gathered his family secret recipes, pitched the idea to retailers in 2011, and now we have before our eyes KYVAN® Foods. KYVAN® Foods is a supplier to great customers like Kroger, Walmart, Sam’s Club, Firehouse Subs, Performance Foodservice, Hot Shots Distributing and more. As stated by Reggie, “It’s my goal to pass down to my kids (Kyla & Kavan) and to everyone the gift passed down to me… An Appreciation Of Good Food.” Thanks and God Bless!

Heinz Launches New Hot Sauce Line

A new range of chilli sauces combining heat and flavour  have been launched by Heinz.

Joining Heinz’s range of condiments and sauces, Heinz Hot Sauces will be available in three flavours: Smokey Chipotle & Garlic, Tangy Green Jalapeno and Fiery Yellow Habanero.

All three sauces contain chilli pastes sourced from a single origin – Mexico – and in the case of Yellow Habanero, a single farmer’s co-operative.

The three flavours have been designed to complement the flavours of well known foods, whilst adding a chilli kick to dishes in differing degrees.

Chipotle is a smokey, medium spiced sauce with a note of garlic – recommended with chicken or brightening your burger.

Jalapeño is a medium-spiced sauce with a tangy, almost pickled like taste, recommended in salsa or salads.

Habanero is a fiery yellow chilli sauce recommended poured on fajitas or splashed into stir fries.

All three Heinz Hot Sauces are free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.

This Autumn Heinz’s Hot Sauces will be available from any good supermarket from September 2012, RRP £1.49.

Hot Sauce Is The Future of The American Economy

Brad Plumer brings us IBIS World's list (PDF) of the 10 fastest-growing industries in America*:

1. Generic pharmaceuticals
2. Solar panel manufacturing
3. For-profit universities
4. Pilates and yoga studios
5. Self-tanning product manufacturing
6. 3-D printer manufacturing
7. Social network game development
8. Hot sauce production
9. Green and sustainable building construction
10. Online eyeglasses sales

Hot sauce is, obviously, the future of the American economy. That's because capsaicin, the molecule that makes hot sauce so "hot," is basically like heroin:

People that eat lots of spicy capsaicin-rich foods build up a tolerance to it. The incentive: a small jolt of capsaicin excites the nervous system into producing endorphins, which promote a pleasant sense of well-being.

In other words, rather than increased hot sauce production slaking our thirst for the spicy stuff, it will only feed future demand as tolerance grows. The other noteworthy thing here is, of course, yoga. In a market niche largely unconstrained by regulations or subsidies or entrenched traditions people would rather pay a premium to do yoga with an in-person instructor, presumably because they find it more enjoyable.
