LYNNWOOD, WA. May, 19, 2016 – Bodega Barcelona, owner of the ready-to-drink vegetable beverage brand Mucho Gazpacho, has partnered with premier Spanish foods importer Culinary Collective to make this product available through its nationwide distribution network.
Newly introduced to the U.S. market in July 2015, Mucho Gazpacho is made from fresh whole vegetables blended with simple ingredients; extra virgin olive oil, wine vinegar and salt, and is free from gluten, additives, preservatives, and is non-GMO. It is now available through Culinary Collective in three delicious flavors; Original (tomato) Gazpacho, Beets Gazpacho, and Greens (green tomato and veggie) Gazpacho.
Betsy Power, co-founder of Culinary Collective comments, “Now is the perfect time to partner with a company like Bodega Barcelona – the vegetable juice category is growing here in the U.S., and ready-to-drink gazpacho is in line with that trend. We’re already seeing significant demand by retailers for Mucho Gazpacho – people love its all-natural ingredients, and that it’s made from whole vegetables.”
Mucho Gazpacho is made with a simple recipe including whole fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and bell peppers, picked at peak ripeness and then blended, so the fiber remains in the finished product. They use a gentle pasteurization process in order to capture the fresh flavor and nutrition of fresh vegetables, while making the drink shelf stable. Each 8-ounce glass bottle contains two servings of vegetables and 2-3 grams of fiber.
Bodega Barcelona’s Miriam Cloquell, a native of Spain and co-founder of Mucho Gazpacho remarks, “Gazpacho is a very traditional cold soup and beverage in Spain, and is incredibly healthy and satisfying. Spanish cuisine is now recognized in the U.S. as one of the world’s greatest, and gazpacho is one of the best examples of the fresh, healthy flavors that come from the Mediterranean. We’re eager to share this experience with more people.”
