In this issue of the Co-op Spoonful we’re offering our shoppers a Local Savings Coupon worth 50¢ off any purchase of any variety of Olympia Salsa! Olympia Salsa is a local family owned business that graces our shelves with three delicious salsas made from a South American recipe. Juan “Jose” Pineda has lived in Washington since 1972, and recently purchased the Tierra Juanita Company and its Olympia Salsa.
Juan’s parents settled in Texas as immigrant farm workers, and his family has been involved in Olympia’s Latino community for many years. With the help of his partner, two sons, and daughter-in-law, their company mission is “to create and promote a great tasting and healthy salsa and to build a socially-conscious business.”
Olympia Salsa currently comes in fresh and flavorful mild, medium, and hot varieties! They also sell a wonderful Garlic Cilantro Sauce. In addition to the original salsa recipes, Juan and his family are testing their Tex-Mex family salsa recipes, with plans to introduce their new line of salsas for your cooking and eating pleasure coming soon!
