Gluten-free Baking Mixes, Gourmet Items and Consumer-Friendly Bulk Lids Featured

BALTIMORE, MD (September 27, 2007) — New and natural tastes abound at the Frontier Natural Products Co-op™ booth (#2719) at the Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore. Leading spice and seasoning brand Simply Organic is sampling two organic, Fair Trade Certified baking mixes, Chai Spice Scone and Cocoa Biscotti, from the new line that also includes Banana Bread Mix and Carrot Cake Mix. Simply Organic is also showcasing the seven new best-selling individual spices that were recently added and the popular Grilling Seasons® marinades and seasonings, as well as the new fat-free Simply Organic Salad Dressing Mixes.

Also featured in the booth are Frontier Gourmet Pepper Grinders and Frontier Gourmet Vanillas. The grinders feature 11 gourmet and exotic pepper seasonings sourced from over six different countries, while the vanillas introduce consumers to the divergent flavors of three unique vanilla producing regions. The Expo offers a special preview of these unique items, which will be available to order in January, 2008.

New self-closing lids for Frontier's 1/2-gallon and quart plastic containers that assist stores in merchandising Frontier's industry-leading bulk line are also on display at the company's booth. The lids open easily and close tightly for less spillage and a cleaner bulk section, allow for one-handed use and eliminate the need for scoops. The lids are approved by the Colorado Health State Department for use in retail stores. Frontier staff will also be available to discuss other options for stores interested in merchandising loose-leaf tea and bulk herbs and spices.
