Tio Gazpacho, a Miami, FL-based line of all organic, gluten-free chilled gazpacho in a bottle, available in blended natural ingredients, has announced its expanded distribution with United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI).
Benefiting from the American penchant for taking native foods and adding a uniquely red-white-and-blue spin, the brand is in a position to take advantage of its customers’ growing affluence and evolving tastes. Tio Gazpacho comes in three flavors thus far: gazpacho clásico (vine-ripened tomato, green pepper and cucumber), gazpacho verde (kale, spinach, avocado and mint) and gazpacho de sol (yellow tomato, yellow pepper and carrot). The chilled soups are organic, vegetarian, vegan, gluten, dairy and soy free, and are also free of chemicals, preservatives, colors, flavors and additives.
Through UNFI’s Speed to Market Program, Tio Gazpacho products can now be found at 62 additional stores. This program, which guarantees shelf placement in participating retailers for 90 days, will enlarge the brand’s national footprint in key markets within the northeast including Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island and Delaware. Furthermore, this expansion increases Tio’s existing presence in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland and Pennsylvania.
“Our rapid growth since we launched Tio Gazpacho a little over a year ago has been driven by consumer demand, leading to increased velocity and distribution growth within leading and local food retailers,” explained Austin Allan, founder and totally important officer (TIO). “We are seeing significant repeat purchase by health-conscious consumers, who consistently tout Tio’s functional benefits and delicious, low calorie taste as reasons for making Tio Gazpacho their preferred meal on-the-go option.”
