Gator Ron’s Zesty Sauces & Mixes has announced that it is working with a distributor to deliver Gator Ron’s products to Canadian specialty foods retailers. Buckstone Gifts & Gourmet Foods has purchased cases of Gator Ron’s Original and Chesapeake Bloody Mary Mix, Gator Ron’s Original and Chipotle Heavenly Barbecue, and Gator Ron’s Original and Spicy Angel Wing Sauce.
Gator Ron’s Zesty Sauces & Mixes was started by Bethesda, Md. resident Connie Griffith who uses recipes from her late husband Ron, who died from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis in November 2011. The company is donating a percentage of proceeds from all sales to help fund research for finding potential treatments – and hopefully someday, a cure – for ALS.
In March, Gator Ron’s accepted an invitation to a meeting hosted by the Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) and the Maryland Small Business Technology and Development Center (SBTDC) Export Assistance Program, at which nine Maryland companies and three Canadian buyers of specialty food products were introduced. As a result of that meeting, Gator Ron’s recently began shipping its product to Canada.
“We are delighted to be working with Buckstone Gifts & Gourmet Foods, said Griffith, President of Gator Ron’s Zesty Sauces & Mixes. We’ve had our products on the market for only 10 months now, and the rapid growth that we are experiencing is wonderful. We are very grateful to the MDA and the SBTDC for their encouragement, and for their assistance in making this next monumental step successfully occur.”
