Macphie Launches Plant-Based Taco Sauce for Foodservice

Scotland-based global ingredients manufacturer Macphie has added to its vegan range with a plant-based taco sauce.

The sauce is said to be “smooth, smoky and mildly spicy”, and has a range of potential applications including dips, nachos, hot dogs, and pasta sauces. It is free of hydrogenated oils and artificial colours.

Foodservice clients can now preorder the sauce, which has been certified as vegan by The Vegetarian Society. The launch is timely, as the market for vegan sauces and dressings is growing rapidly — it is expected to be worth $327 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 7%.

About Macphie

Founded in 1928, Macphie started out as a craft baker and developed into an ingredients producer. The company says its aim is to make life simpler for chefs and bakers in the foodservice sector.

Macphie now offers almost 40 vegan products, including alternatives to cheese sauce, cream, and glazes for baked goods. These products are used by bakeries and foodservice outlets worldwide. The company is also a certified B Corp with a focus on sustainability.

“Plant-based sauces can not only be time-consuming to produce, but costly and tricky to get right,” Kirsty Matthews, Marketing and Insights Manager at Macphie, told Deadline News. “Not only do our products save valuable cooking time, but they also save restaurants from having to buy plant-based products in bulk for the creation of a delicious and authentic sauce alternative.”
