Is the formula supposed to sum column DV rather than column B in the "Dairy Products" part? If not, and it's supposed to use B as well, try:

=IF(SUMPRODUCT(--($A$2:$A$1833&$C$2:$C$1833=A2&"Seafood"),$B$2:$B$1833)/SUMIF(A:A,A2,B:B)>=PercentageTT,"Seafood",IF(SUMPRODUCT(--($A$2:$A$1833&$C$2:$C$1833=A2&"Dairy Products"),$B$2:$B$1833)/SUMIF(A:A,A2,B:B)>=PercentageTT,"Dairy Products",IF(SUMPRODUCT(--($A$2:$A$1833&$C$2:$C$1833=A2&"Beverages"),$B$2:$B$1833)/SUMIF(A:A,A2,B:B)>=PercentageTT,"Beverages","Other")))

Try this:

=IF(SUMIFS(B:B,A:A,A2,C:C,"Seafood")/SUMIF(A:A,A2,B:B)>=PercentageTT,"Seafood",IF(SUMIFS(B:B,A:A,A2,C:C,"Dairy Products")/SUMIF(A:A,A2,B:B)>=PercentageTT,"Dairy Products",IF(SUMIFS(B:B,A:A,A2,C:C,"Beverages")/SUMIF(A:A,A2,B:B)>=PercentageTT,"Beverages","Other")))

*btw, I think this also fixes the erroneous reference to column DV in your original formula.
