SIMPLY ORGANIC ADDS DIPS AND DRESSINGS
Premium Organic Ingredients Key Feature

NORWAY, IOWA (August 27, 2003) — Frontier Natural Products Co-op announced today that it’s adding eight new products to its Simply Organic line of spices and seasonings — four dips and four salad dressings. These new products are the first in a series of planned expansions to the line.

The eight new products, like all products carrying the Simply Organic brand, are made from all high-quality certified organic ingredients. "Obviously, our goal is to have the best tasting product on the market," says Clint Landis, Frontier’s VP of Marketing. "We decided to bring a new level of quality to dips and dressings using only organic ingredients."

The convenient, easily prepared new products consist of four dips (Creamy Dill, French Onion, Guacamole, Ranch) and four dressings (Classic Caesar, Garlic Vinaigrette, Italian, Ranch). "People who buy natural food are interested in freshness," says Landis, "so we’re offering dips and dressings that can be made fresh right before they are used.

Landis says that more additions to the Simply Organic line are being planned in response to the booming demand for organics. "People want more high-quality organic options," he says, "and we’re committed to making them available."
