Hak's, Los Angeles, debuted new refrigerated salad dressings for Whole Foods' salad bars.
The first offering, organic 32-ounce foodservice dressings, come in Balsamic, Olive Oil and Lemon, Sesame Ginger, Ranch, BBQ Ranch, Avocado Lime, Blue Cheese, Citrus Vinaigrette, Vegan Ranch, Vegan Caesar and Honey Dijon. They’re housed in reusable stainless-steel insulated bottles from Simple Modern, Norman, Okla., taking the place of the currently used plastic bottles and eliminating the waste of 1,588 plastic bottles every month in the Southern Pacific region alone.
The second offering, organic dressing singles, give retail customers a convenient grab-and-go option. Sold in the refrigerated section of the produce department, organic dressing singles come in Vegan Balsamic, Olive Oil and Lemon, Sesame Ginger, Spicy Thai, Ranch, BBQ Ranch and Caesar.
"Today's customer is constantly looking for tastier, healthier, quicker options for their grab-and-go meals,” says chef Sharone Hakman, founder. “Dressings have a huge impact on our food both nutritionally and in terms of flavor. We all want better options, and Hak's meets that need by providing great-tasting organic dressings that will make it easier to make healthier choices in our busy lives."
Hak's new dressings are available at Whole Foods in Southern California, Hawaii, Arizona and Nevada.
