ORLANDO — At the International Fresh Produce Association’s inaugural show Oct. 27-29, refrigerated dressing specialist Marie’s introduced a new squeezable bottle, the company’s first.
The 18 oz. product comes in one established flavor at Marie’s — Creamy Homestyle Ranch — and in two new ones: Zesty Secret Sauce (savory and slightly sweet with ketchup and black pepper) and Roasted Garlic Aioli.
“Our customers love the versatility of it,” said Alex Henning, director of retail sales – Midwest, for Ventura Foods, owner of the Marie’s brand. “And people are big into flavor now.”
In addition to being used as a dressing, the new squeezable products are perfect for dips and a variety of other food applications, Henning said.
