Our story

The world of sauces and dressings has always been associated with producers of powerful trademark names. For some, there was little room for new products to compete, much less if the proposal involved was a sophisticated and exotic offering. That was not the same thought of our group who enthusiastically decided to challenge market orthodoxy embracing innovation.


After a successful professional career in Venezuela, our country of origin organized ourselves around our passion for food and the idea of creating new innovative sauces and flavor experiences; the concept of tropical fruits dressings was born and its commercialization initiated in 2003 under the brand name orinoquia


After thirteen years of successful commercial experience and with international exposure in Europe and Central America, they bring the concept to the North American Market under the brand name amazonia

Venezuela, South America

Amazonia is a line of specialized products meant to change the way dressings and sauces, in general, are seen by consumers. Formulated using natural tropical fruits they add to an innovative palette of new flavor sensations the attributes of convenience and practicality
