The Cajun Nation Cajun Seasoning Co. was created by brothers, Alfonzo and Troy Bolden. Our dream started on a Louisiana working sugarcane plantation in the late 1970s. Our journey from two little boys running on a Sugarcane plantation transformed into two adult men running a successful Cajun seasoning company is the making of an amazing story. After leaving the plantation in the early 80’s, we move to a small community on the Cajun Coast called Glencoe. Growing up only a few miles from the Morton Salt plant on the Cajun Coast provided us with access to an abundance of fresh seafood and wildlife. At an early age, we were introduced to outdoor Cajun Cooking during our family boucheries. We watched our mother, our own home chef, in the kitchen prepare the perfectly seasoned Cajun meals. The aroma of the food would travel throughout the house and escape to the outdoors. We can say that life on the Cajun Coast provided us with the vision to create the Cajun Nation Cajun Seasoning Company.
What is the Cajun Nation Cajun Seasoning Company? It’s a Minority and Veteran owned and operated Louisiana-made seasoning and spice company. The vision was to create a low sodium Cajun seasoning to address Hypertension within our community. Hypertension has been an issue throughout our family for years. We experience the negative effects of high blood pressure that resulted in a major change of diet beginning with the seasoning. The objective was to create a flavorful combination of Cajun spices that is low in sodium and contains no MSG, so that our family, friends, and neighbors could address their hypertension concerns without giving up their flavorful meals. Like our grandmother use to say, “I just want a taste of salt."
We started experimenting. After several blend attempts, many opinions, and countless prepared meals, we achieved our goal. We created our first product, the Cajun Nation Cajun Seasoning blended especially blended for the home chef. Our community confirmed that by purchasing one, two, three, and sometimes four cans at a time. It has become a staple in their cabinets. As part of our strategy, we wanted our customers to be known as the Cajun Nation Home Chefs and have them to photograph their prepared meals with the Cajun Nation Cajun Seasoning can included in the picture. We Did not want the magazine look. We wanted “Real People Cooking Real Food.” It has been successful. Our Cajun Nation Home Chefs prepare their meals and post them daily as if it’s a contest. Their photos and videos are shared through social media outlets by the customers and our company. Last, we created the phrase “GEAUX GET THE RED CAN” which clearly identifies our product that is packaged in a RED can. We will continue our grassroot approach and brand building with no end in sight. Our Community is building us!
