North American Mediterranean food distributor Wild Garden has said it experienced double-digit increases for sales and customer growth during the first half of 2006.


The company credited the growth success on the growing popularity of its premiere food product, Hummus.


Mark D Smith, Wild Garden vice president of sales, said case sales to existing customers increased 32% while overall case sales increased 46% over last year.
 
“We continue to see a steady increase in sales of Wild Garden food products, including Hummus, Hummus to Go, and Hummus Single Serve Tetra Packets,” Smith said.


“We continue to see growth in the number of retail outlets that offer Hummus and other Wild Garden products including our wide selection of trail mixes and also our Baked Pita Chips,” Smith said.
