Simply Organic® Introduces New Seasoning Mixes
New products create meals with flair, flavor and convenience

Norway, Iowa (Sept. 12, 2006) — Frontier Natural Products Co-op™ has announced the addition of five new items to its line of Simply Organic® Seasoning Mixes, a premium quality line designed to help consumers create quick, healthy meals that feature organic ingredients. Following the success of the line's original 13 products, the new products have been created to meet growing customer demand for seasoning and sauce mixes. Simply Organic Seasoning Mixes are the most popular seasoning mixes in the natural products industry. The existing line includes mixes for pasta sauces, gravies and specialty seasonings for Mexican and other cuisines.

"Consumers are looking for seasoning products that combine great taste with convenience," said Brett Karminski, Frontier's seasonings category manager. "They are also looking for healthy options. We believe that providing taste and convenience using top-quality certified organic ingredients has made Simply Organic the most popular line of seasoning mixes in the natural foods marketplace."

The five new products are Bearnaise Sauce Mix, Hollandaise Sauce Mix, Mild Chili Seasoning Mix, Spicy Taco Seasoning Mix, and Vegetarian Brown Gravy Mix. With these mixes it's easy to create delicious, quick-cooking meals that call for the addition of just a few ingredients commonly found in the kitchen, such as water, milk, vegetables, grains, meat, beans or tofu. Each package also features a "Chef Suggests" panel that offers versatile tips on turning everyday meals into special culinary occasions by using the mixes to spice up entrees, vegetables, and side dishes. Packaged in convenient, space-saving 1-oz. pouches, Simply Organic Seasoning Mixes store easily in the cupboard or pantry until ready for use.

All items are sold in natural foods stores and in the natural and health sections of mainstream grocery stores. Suggested retail price for each of the five new mixes ranges from $1.09 to $1.29. Complete product information is available at 1-800-669-3275 or on the Frontier website: www.frontiercoop.com.
