Food - Investment

Cisco & Blake

The story of Cisco + Blake starts with two creative guys in a small Bedford, NY kitchen making artisanal sauces and canned goods for family and friends.

When the partners of Bread Ventures met Farmer Michael and Designer Brian, the guys had no intention starting an applesauce business.

They simply made harvest sauces for their friends. For our team, however, it was love at first bite! We were so impressed with their authentic passion for home grown seasonal cooking and their creativity in the kitchen that we suggested a joint venture.

Cisco + Blake sauces are “jarringly different”

….with unexpected ingredients like bourbon infused cherries, pineapple mint and rum soaked vanilla. Our flavor profiles make applesauce chunky, bumpy and new again!
