Mary Ostlund, marketing director for Homestead, Fla.-based Brooks Tropicals Inc., said she anticipated no problems caused by the down economy.

“As far as I can see, folks are cooking more at home, and they are looking to vary their menu to make it more exciting, get their families to eat healthier,” she said. “I’m not seeing a big impact from the recession at all.”

Brooks will be working with individual retailers on customized promotional programs, Ostlund added.
