The seasoning and dressing manufacturing industry includes companies that make spices, dry gravy mixes, seasoning mixes, salad dressings, sauces, and natural extracts. Major US companies include Heinz, Kraft, and McCormick.
The US seasoning and dressing manufacturing industry includes about 600 companies with combined annual revenue of about $17 billion and is expected to grow at a high rate over the next two years. Key growth opportunities include promoting products as healthy pairings, sustainable and organic products, and spice exports.
The industry doesn't include companies that make tomato-based sauces (including pasta sauce, ketchup, and salsa) or pourable gravies.

Large companies have advantages in purchasing, distribution, and marketing. Small operations can compete effectively by manufacturing exotic sauces, sourcing and selling rare herbs, or formulating custom spice blends, extracts, and mixes. The industry is concentrated: the top 50 companies account for more than 70 percent of industry revenue.
