Marketing Manager

About Sir Kensington’s 

At Sir Kensington’s we have an appreciation for the exceptional role that food plays in all our lives. Eight years ago, we realized that while food in America was evolving, condiments had been left behind. For food, there’s no greater complement than a great condiment. Whether it’s ketchup and mayonnaise, or the burger they complete, our purpose is to make food better.

Our premium, all-natural condiments are sold in all Whole Foods nationwide, as well as 5,000+ natural, specialty, and grocery stores. 

Sir Kensington’s Ketchup has also become the first premium ketchup to ever replace Heinz in restaurants and hotels in over 50 years, including in The Ritz-Carlton, the Spotted Pig, PJ Clarke’s, The Smith, The Gramercy Park Hotel, The Ace Hotel, and hundreds of others.
