SAN FRANCISCO — At Summer Fancy Foods 2018, La Tourangelle will debut a new line of organic salad dressings made with La Tourangelle’s award-winning artisan oils. La Tourangelle won three Sofi awards this year and is famous for its artisan oils used as ingredients in dressings, baking and more. This launch is the brand’s first ready-to-serve dressing line using its exceptional oils to create extraordinary salad dressings with no whisking or shaking required. The La Tourangelle Salad Dressing line is launching with four flavors including Creamy Ranch made with Organic Virgin Avocado Oil, Classic Balsamic made with Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sesame Tamari Vinaigrette made with Organic Toasted Sesame Oil and Cirus Chipotle made with Organic Virgin Avocado Oil. Summer Fancy Food Show Attendees can try all these flavors first at booth #1568.
“Our La Tourangelle Salad Dressing line started with a simple idea to use the best artisan oils there are in a ready-to-serve dressing,” said La Tourangelle CEO and president Matthieu Kohlmeyer. “With our new La Tourangelle Organic Salad Dressings we deliver the gourmet flavor we are known for in a more convenient finished dressing.”
Each of the La Tourangelle Salad Dressings is delicately whipped with herbs, spices and acids like balsamic vinegar or lemon juice for a creamy consistency that doesn’t separate. Each is USDA Organic certified, vegan, gluten-free, low sodium and low in sugar content and made with premium artisan oils. La Tourangelle Salad Dressings use only La Tourangelle oils made with a chemical free extraction process that preserves heart healthy essential fatty acids that both tastes great and are an essential part of a healthy diet. La Tourangelle dressings are shelf stable and come in 8.5 oz. glass bottles with an MSRP of $5.99.
In addition to the exciting launch of La Tourangelle Salad Dressings, the brand has also won an extraordinary three Sofi Awards (2 Gold and 1 Bronze). La Tourangelle’s Roasted Peanut Oil won a gold Sofi for best baking ingredient, their Roasted Pistachio Oil won a gold Sofi for best nut oil and the brand’s famous Roasted Walnut Oil won a bronze Sofi also in the nut oils category.
