SIMPLY ORGANIC® INTRODUCES ORGANIC FOODSERVICE LINE
First Comprehensive All-Organic Selection of Spices and Seasonings Now Available

NORWAY, IOWA (September 21, 2005) Frontier Natural Products Co-op has introduced a foodservice line of nearly four dozen Simply Organic® spices and seasonings that will be available both directly from Frontier and via specialty and gourmet distributors. "Simply Organic is the first brand to offer a comprehensive set of all-organic spices and seasonings for chefs, restaurant owners, schools and hospitals, and the travel/leisure industry," notes Steve Krusie, director of marketing.

Krusie explains that, increasingly, consumers eating away from home are seeking meals prepared with high-quality organic ingredients. And, culinary professionals want the highest- quality spices because they deliver the best flavor. Simply Organic provides that quality in 100% organic spices and seasonings.

The new line offers another opportunity for Frontier to increase the accessibility of organics to consumers, according to Krusie. "Our expertise is in identifying the highest-quality, best- tasting organic spices," he says, "and we're pleased to support the trend of new organic selections appearing on menus around the country."

All Simply Organic spices are lab tested to ensure premium quality. Certified by Quality Assurance International (QAI), all Simply Organic spices meet the rigorous USDA standards for organic products and are also kosher certified by KSA. Because all 44 items in the new Simply Organic foodservice line are organic, they're free of genetically engineered and irradiated ingredients. The recyclable clear plastic containers hold four cups of product, include tamper-evident freshness seals, and are freshness dated.

Complete product and sales information is available at www.SimplyOrganicFoodservice.com or 1-800-669-3275.
