Having launched its product line on the US based shopping portal Amazon.com in July 2015, the company’s Grace Jerk Seasoning was awarded for being the “#1 New Release” in the Herbs, Spices & Seasoning Gifts category on the shopping portal.
When a product is considered a “#1 New Release” on Amazon, a graphical badge appears on the product description page. This badge is considered a great honor to have on a product listing, as it highlights the brand and brings attention to potential buyers of what Amazon considers to be a popular new product that they recommend to their customers.
While the product held the #1 release spot for two days, the effect of the nod from Amazon is still evident. As at September 3, both the mild and hot variants of the Grace Jerk Seasoning are now in the top five products in the Herbs, Spices & Seasoning Gifts category, at number 4 and number 3 respectively.
“We are thrilled with the recognition of our product on this scale! We have always been confident that Grace Jerk Seasoning, like all our Grace products, is one of high quality. To know that Amazon agrees and wants to tell the world that they should try it is just amazing for us. We are also excited to be on the Amazon platform for the ability to bring Grace products to a wider audience and to make it easy for them to purchase online,” said Deidre Cousins, VP Business Systems, GraceKennedy Foods USA LLC.
Grace Jerk Seasonings are made in Jamaica and distributed in the US by GraceKennedy Foods USA LLC. The company was formed in 2014 when GraceKennedy acquired US based Hispanic Foods company, La Fe.
