ALL DRESSING;ED UP
Litehouse has added dressings to its pourable line. Combining the heat that consumers are seeking with a touch of sweet,
Litehouse Sriracha Lime and Litehouse
Mango Habanero offer a blend of spices
and herbs for dressings.
“These robust dressings were crafted to
satisfy consumers’ heat tooth and sweet
tooth and are great on salads, as a chicken
marinade or to spread on a wrap,” says
Camille Balfanz, brand manager for the
Sandpoint, Idaho-based company. “By
combining different levels of sweet and
heat, our new flavors create a dynamic
experience for the taste buds.”
The new Litehouse dressings are gluten-free, contain no
high-fructose corn syrup or artificial preservatives and are 25
calories or less per serving. Litehouse Mango Habanero offers
the taste of sweet real mangos followed by a slow heat at the
finish. Litehouse Sriracha Lime combines the flavors of chili
sauce, lime citrus and a hint of ginger to heat up any meal.
The dressings have a suggested retail price of $4.49.

has introduced a line of single-serve, warm

Risotto, Sesame Sriracha and Smokehouse Brussels. The
bowls are suited for a variety of meal occasions and can be

“Healthy bowl-based meals are very popular in foodservice, so it’s natural to bring a product like Nourish Bowls
to retail,” says Lorri Koster, chairman and CEO. “We fully
expect this new line to do for the cut-veg category what single-serve salad bowls have done for the salad category. Sales
performance during our initial rollout has far exceeded our
projections. Consumers are loving these products.”
