Pfleider Pfoods, Inc. won 9 awards at the America’s Zesty Best Food Competition in Costa Mesa, CA on June 17, 2005. The highlight was an Art of Chipotle sweep in the “Chile Specific” category for chipotle sauces.
“Winning all the awards in this important category shows that we have been successful in defining the standard for this enormously popular taste profile,” stated Tom Pfleider, the President of Pfleider Pfoods. “Our company is focused exclusively on gourmet chipotle products, so this recognition is particularly gratifying.”
