“Paladin it´s permanently researching, in order to create new seasonings that may result in different gastronomic experiences to contemporary consumers. Each year we develop approximately 50 new sauces. Only the best are placed on the market, like the ketchup Mediterranean taste. But there are many others, like our unique Tomato Vinegar , our special range of sauces or the exclusive line of Hot sauces with fruits “Le Diaboletin””, continues Carlos Gonçalves.
