The Asorbas Story
Duane Thompson’s passion for salsa sparked in the mid-1990’s after having a tough day. After the college football team he played for had a particularly awful game, Duane returned to his dorm room exhausted only to find that his friends raided his fridge, including the bag of garden fresh vegetables his grandmother delivered to him that morning before his big game. With only a few vegetables left, and a half a bag of tortilla chips, Duane created his earliest version of Asorbas salsa.
The primary ingredient in his salsas are bell peppers instead of a tomato base common in many salsas, making his salsas a better option for heartburn sufferers. The naturally balanced pH makes Asorbas salsas shelf stable for up to two years without the use of artificial preservatives. All of the produce in his salsas are fresh from local sources: “If you don’t continue to harvest the farms around here, they’ll go away,” he says. “If you’re buying local, you’re growing your own community.” We couldn’t agree more.
Today, Asorbas Salsa is focused on growing it’s product distribution both locally and internationally with a future interest in new product line acquisitions and strives to be the leader in the healthy, high end, natural food products industry while promoting sustainable business practices and environmental consciousness.
