Company Background:

At Kam’s, we believe you shouldn’t have to be wealthy to eat healthy! We are planning a launch into foodservice, and recently, have been invited for a test kitchen presentation with a large American breakfast chain. We know chefs are clamoring to find all natural, spicy ingredients to enhance their menus and are confident the food service channel will propel our brand to its highest potential.

About the Products:

America’s tired of the same old condiments…so move over ketchup; take a seat sriracha; it’s our turn Tabasco! We’ve crafted the perfect condiment with a 100-year-old family recipe, to bring home-style goodness back to America’s tables. We know the best things in life can remain simple, and with just 5 natural ingredients, our tomato, onion and red pepper combos go on everything, especially eggs, sausages, burgers and seafood. We are the lowest sodium, sugar, and calorie tomato condiment on the market, and contain no high-fructose corn syrup, water, or GMO’s.

Quote from CEO:

“As much as being a woman makes it tough for some, it has been a blessing for Kam’s.  It has actually allowed our brand to get prioritized where we may have normally been way down the list. I know now that organically funding a startup in the consumer packaged goods industry is difficult at best. Even after you raise outside funding, your needs keep growing. I would have to say funding our national brand building efforts is the most difficult hurdle we now face.”
