A Baltimore, Maryland company is benefiting from its customer base tightening their belts.
McCormick and Company is paying attention to changing eating habits.
Their business has never been better, even as the economy faces a downturn.
Eating out has been replaced with eating in, and the spice company is becoming more profitable as a result.
Consumer purchases helped this company see a 21 percent rise in third quarter earnings.
That's translated to more than 68-million dollars.

A growing number of seasoning products are one-step combinations that help consumers satisfy their taste buds and their wallets.
Seasoning products aren't big-ticket items, so a little seems to go a long way.
