Edgar and Simeon Curtice shared a passion for food. They opened their first grocery store in 1868 where they sold fresh fruit and vegetables. Soon they began to develop sauces and condiments using the fresh produce from their store and developed the recipe for their famous Tomato Ketchup which was said to have the richest flavor – like red-ripe tomatoes in a bottle. With the same passion and thorough research we re-created Curtice Brothers’ once famous Ketchup. We use the freshest ingredients from our certified organic farms and cook our ketchup to retain the full-bodied flavor of fresh tomatoes.
In Life only two Things matter: Love and Food
So we began to cook, we experimented with the wildest recipes, tasted the worst and the best outcomes, drank too much wine, danced around the kitchen and learned how to squeeze more than 15 tomatoes into one small bottle.
We don’t accept Compromises
We love to cook and we know that the right combination of patience, passion and good ingredients are necessary to create a great meal, a delicious condiment, a real ketchup. We don’t want our ketchup to end up on some dull sandwich but on a freshly prepared burger or a great steak; our ketchup is best enjoyed with food that you eat for fun, not on the run. We cook our ketchup for people who recognize the contradiction between high quality and low price, people who buy their vegetables from the farmer, not the discounter, people who don’t follow trends but create them.
The Story continues
Wikipedia delivered a brief elaboration on the terminology and a small picture of a ketchup advertisement by the Curtice Brothers from 1868. Without any particular intention, we followed this nostalgic reference and found that this brand with its very romantic touch had been abandoned. So we decided to continue their story and became the new Curtice Brothers.
