This role is based in New York City and will report to the VP of Foodservice.
About Us – Please allow us to introduce ourselves
Sir Kensington's is a company with a purpose: we believe food is the most powerful human connector, and to protect that superpower, we work to defend the dignity of food. In doing so, we reimagine ordinary and overlooked food with fearless integrity and charm. 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.
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, where this role is based.
