Seasonings and Marinades Enhance Meat and Vegetarian Fare

NORWAY, IOWA (March 15, 2005) — Frontier Natural Products Co-op is adding Grilling Seasons®, a new line of grilling seasonings and marinades, to its all-organic brand of spices and seasonings, Simply Organic®.

"Nearly 75% of Americans own a grill," says Brett Karminski, Frontier's Packaged Seasonings Category Manager, "and with the increased interest in home cooking and home entertaining, it's a safe bet they're getting a lot of use."

"Organic meat, poultry and seafood is the one of the fastest growing organic categories in natural food stores," says Karminski. "Couple these trends with the leadership of the fastest growing organic packaged seasonings brand and you get Simply Organic Grilling Seasons. These fresh and full-flavored seasonings complement nearly any meat dish and taste great on tofu and other vegetarian fare as well. They're a quick and convenient way to enhance the wholesome flavors of almost any grilled meal."

Grilling Seasons offers three varieties of shake-on seasonings (Steak, Spicy Steak, and Chicken) in the traditional Simply Organic 6.25-ounce square bottle, and three 30-minute marinades (Steak, Mesquite Barbecue, and Zesty Herb) in the traditional Simply Organic foil pouches. The marinades season meat, poultry or tofu with only cooking oil, vinegar and water added. Vegetarian recipes are provided on the marinade pouches, as well as suggestions for using the marinades as the base for dipping or barbecue sauces.

Karminski notes visitors to Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California, March 17-20 can enjoy these great tasting new seasonings--Frontier chef Liz Hopkins will be on hand with Grilling Seasons samplings at the Frontier booth.

Simply Organic Grilling Seasons are certified organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI), meet the USDA requirements for organic products, and bear the USDA logo. An innovative display shipper allows the bottled grilling seasonings and the marinade pouches to be paired in the same attractive display.
