Albuquerque, New Mexico (January 3, 2003) 505 Southwestern announced today its new 505 Organics line of certified organic Green Chile Sauces and Salsas. Known for its 505 natural line of chile products, the company is offering 6 new items including mild, medium and hot green chile sauce, medium and hot salsa and a medium chunky chile sauce. The products meet the new USDA “certified organic” requirements where 95% or more of the ingredients are 3rd party certified organic. CEO, Roy Solomon, reports, “It was a natural move for us to add the 505 Organics label due to our commitment to the environment and our customers’ requests to get the same great quality chile products made with organic ingredients.” He adds, “We’re excited to announce that this is the first certified organic Green Chile Sauce in the world!”
505 Southwestern is well known for its family of chile products made with flame-roasted organic green chile harvested from the fertile soils of southern New Mexico. Other organic ingredients are blended together to create an authentic taste of the southwest that enhances the flavor of many mealtime favorites. The sauces and salsas are fat-free, preservative-free and loaded with important nutrients like Vitamin C. The company’s salsa is one of the few made without onion. “At the 505 Chile Factory, we take our chile seriously,” says Roy. “We suggest using our products with eggs, chicken, pork, burgers, pasta, potatoes, chips, dips, salads plus your traditional southwestern fare of burritos, tacos and enchiladas – let nothing remain uncovered!”
505 Southwestern has been manufacturing and marketing green chile sauces and salsa in the mountain states since 1996. Their 505 Chile Factory is also a favorite restaurant located in Albuquerque where consumers can enjoy lunch with their favorite salsas and sauces. The addition of the organic line has also led to an expansion of their current manufacturing facilities. The company donates a portion of each sale to the fight against breast cancer. The 505 Organics line as well as their other products are available through supermarkets, natural food stores, specialty food outlets as well as mail order.
