The SFA was sad to hear of the death of Paul McIlhenny this weekend. McIlhenny was chairman and CEO of the McIlhenny Company, makers of Tabasco brand products.

The company has been a generous supporter of the SFA for many years, co-sponsoring projects such as the Southern Boudin Trail, the Southern Gumbo Trail, and the Tabasco Guardians of the Tradition.

Our thoughts are with the McIlhenny family and everyone on Avery Island, Louisiana. We are grateful to Paul McIlhenny for his support of the SFA, and we will miss him.
