NEW ORLEANS — Zatarain’s expanded its Andouille and Cajun Style Smoked Sausage to more than 2,000 Kroger Co.-owned retail grocery locations nationwide.

The smoked sausage is 100% pork and contains no artificial colors or flavors, no by-products, no MSG and is gluten free. The food and spice company said the sausage goes well with jambalaya, red beans and rice and gumbo as well as with Zatarain’s rice mixes.

“We hope to make the delicious flavor of Zatarain’s Smoked Sausage available to everyone and adding it at Kroger is a stride in the right direction,” said Claude Davis, New Orleans native and Zatarain’s principal scientist. “We are excited to see our retail footprint expand even more in the coming months and years.”

Zatarain’s launched this line of sausage product in 2019. With this announcement the company will be expanding its footprint past its current distribution in Sam’s Club, Food Lion and select independent retailers around the country.
