Cacique, Mexican-style cheeses, cremas and chorizos in the US, has acquired El Sol Foods, which makes home-style salsas in Gilbert, Arizona.

The acquisition signals Cacique's entry into the salsa category. It will also extend its portfolio of Hispanic foods.

Gil de Cárdenas, CEO, Cacique, said El Sol is a good fit for the company as they share similar values.

"We're excited to further diversify our portfolio to offer even more key components consumers need to make authentic Mexican meals, and we intend to leverage our expertise and resources to build on El Sol's track record of success​," he said.

Distribution of the Cacique salsa products will begin regionally in the western US this May, with nationwide rollout beginning in the summer.

Cacique Homestyle Salsas are made using fresh produce using a small batch, cold process, continuing the tradition El Sol began more than 30 years ago.

Cacique Salsas will be available in nine varieties, including Homestyle, Mild, Medium and Hot, as well as in multiple specialty and Organic Homestyle selections.
