Truco Enterprises Showcases Full Line Of Products For Convenience Channel At 2017 NACS Show

Truco Enterprises, maker of On The Border® retail products, will be sampling their new immediate consumption package sizes for chips and dips at their first full booth experience at the 2017 National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Show. At the 2016 NACS show, Truco‘s products were recognized as the #2 new food products in the Top 10 Products among the 330 new and innovative products displayed. Those products have since launched and will be sampled for full distribution and ordering this year. Additionally, Truco will provide a sneak peek of the 2018 innovation pipeline with three products featured in the Cool New Products segment.

According to IRI data for multi-outlet retail for the 52 weeks through September 3, 2017, On The Border is now the fastest growing national brand in each of the unflavored tortilla chip, salsa, and salsa con queso categories, and it is also the highest velocity unflavored tortilla chip brand. “Our success in the grocery, mass and club channels, which has been driven by innovation, along with the recent launch of our NEW On The Border Nacho Cheese and Zesty Ranch flavored tortilla chips have positioned our brand to be a strong player in the convenience channel. We are thrilled to be at NACS this year with products available to both sample and order, and we are also excited about our innovation for 2018,” said Mel Deane, CEO of Truco.

That innovation includes a new strategic partnership with TAJÍN, best known for their unique seasoning blend of mild chili peppers, sea salt, and lime. “We are excited to partner with TAJÍN to create a new and unique flavored tortilla chip product that offers a twist to the established flavor segments available today,” said Deane.

The NACS Show will take place October 17-20, 2017 at McCormick Place located at 2301 South King Drive, Chicago, Illinois. Truco Enterprises’ On The Border will be exhibiting at booth #1227.
