Initiatives in North America

In 1981, Mizkan acquired the major vinegar manufacturer, American Industries Company, and successfully entered the US market. After acquiring competitive food brands in North America and entering the growing pepper market, we also entered the pasta-sauce market in 2014.

We have three main business areas: pasta sauce, vinegar, and peppers. RAGÚ™ and Bertolli™ pasta sauce brands are our biggest sellers. Both are deeply rooted in US food culture, and household names.
Our other retail brands include America’s number one brand of cooking wine, Holland House™, and Nakano™ rice vinegar.

In order to meet consumer demand for authentic flavors and real ingredients for home cooking, we strive to deliver foods that unify taste experiences and healthy choices.
