Malibu Gourmet Foods Is Taking Off With Their All-Natural Sauces and Seasonings and Creating a Huge Buzz in the Market


MALIBU, Calif., Feb. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- When you think of the picturesque city of Malibu with the sweeping coastline views, the surfers riding the waves, you may also think of the wonderful restaurants on Pacific Coast Highway in the heart of Malibu, California. It is along this route back in 1959 that the first restaurant in Robert and Chris Scott's family was opened. Their success led to a string of four other restaurants, each time creating a loyal customer base driven by their delicious seafood dishes and sauces. 

When the now famous Malibu Seafood restaurant opened in 1972, the original owner asked the grandmother of Robert and Chris Scott to share her recipes from their successful family businesses. She was more than willing to do this. Malibu Gourmet Foods is making some of those same recipes today, including her cocktail and tartar sauces. They are now available to the masses in grocery, natural, specialty stores and restaurants. The products are in an all-natural form, along with a variety of other sauces and seasonings.

Robert and Chris Scott started Malibu Gourmet Foods about a year ago when they recognized the demand for these sauces from the customers at their family restaurants in Malibu over the years. After their due diligence, they also realized there was a need for all natural seafood sauces. They wanted to be able to share their grandmother's great-tasting sauces that have driven millions to their multiple family-owned restaurants since 1959, with a wider audience.  

"We have literally had thousands of requests by our customers over the years to buy our sauces to take home," says Chris Scott, co-owner of Malibu Gourmet Foods. "We can only imagine the trickle-down effects with our distribution expanding into grocery stores, natural stores and even more restaurants. The products that we created truly represent our grandmother's creation in an all-natural form."

The Scott brothers have received such a positive response since selling into retailers and restaurants over the past year that they have already expanded their product line. Their initial launch included a cocktail sauce and tartar sauce. Today, they offer a dill and horseradish sauce along with 6 seasonings and rubs, including chicken, steak and chop, Cajun, seafood, lemon pepper and steak. Their sauces and seasonings are all-natural as that factor was important to them and to many of the grocery stores which they sell into.

"We are very proud of the products that we are putting into the retail marketplace," says Robert Scott, co-owner of Malibu Gourmet Foods. "They are part of our family and heritage. It feels like we are being able to share something really special that our grandmother created years ago with other families. We want to see our customers enjoy the sauces, the seasonings and rubs as much as we have enjoyed them as a family over the years."

Malibu Gourmet Foods plans to continue growing their retail distribution and has plans to make their products available in multiple areas in the stores. With their all-natural sauces and seasonings being geared beyond seafood, the company's goals are to have the products available in the spice/seasoning section, condiment aisle and at the seafood counter.

Manufacturing and shipping out of California, Malibu Gourmet Foods projects to have their products available nationwide within 5 years. Owners Robert and Chris Scott are certain their high-quality, tremendous tasting products combined with their unique family story will produce amazing results. The owners think the customers that buy their products in the stores will be as dedicated as the millions of customers who have come into their family-owned restaurants over the years. 

Malibu Gourmet Foods distributes a variety of all-natural sauces, seasonings and rubs into the retail marketplace and to restaurants through the food service industry. The company is based in Malibu, California with a sales satellite office in San Diego, CA. Their website is and the phone number is (866) 500-6436.
