Robert Rothschild Farm Goes Organic

 

Robert Rothschild Farm has recently achieved organic certification for its manufacturing facility located in Urbana, Ohio. Robert Rothschild Farm produces sauces, dips, preserves, mustards, spreads and other gourmet products that are all natural, gluten free and kosher.

“We are conscientious of current healthy lifestyles and want to provide the consumer what they desire,” said Jim Gordon, President & CEO of Robert Rothschild Farm. “We felt compelled to provide organic products that tasted great. Taste should not be compromised when seeking organic products using non-GMO ingredients.”

This year celebrates Robert Rothschild Farm’s 30th anniversary of producing specialty foods. “Creating organic products shows our commitment, not only to high-quality, flavorful products but taking our company to the next level,” said Gordon.

“Organic foods are a growing market in which Robert Rothschild Farm is well positioned to produce and provide these essential products,” said Gordon. “We look forward to leading the specialty food industry and bringing our consumers the finest in organic, open and serve products that they have come to expect from us.”

Robert Rothschild Farm is continually recognized as one of the top gourmet food manufacturers in the United States and has been honored with numerous awards for its branded product line, but the company also produces gourmet products under many private labels. “By obtaining our organic certification, we can expand our current product offering and extend organic production to our private label customers,” said Gordon.

Robert Rothschild Farm will initially introduce a new line of organic products at the upcoming Summer Fancy Food Show, June 29 – July 1, 2014. This new line of organic products will launch the beginning of the Robert Rothschild Farm movement to convert the majority of its current product offering to be organic certified.

Mrs. Green’s Natural Market announced today a series of donations totaling nearly $25,000 to community organizations that promote healthy, sustainable lifestyles. Several Mrs. Green’s locations across the U.S. and Canada committed to donating up to five percent of in-store proceeds from one week this spring in an effort to give back.

Mrs. Green’s, a rapidly expanding subsidiary of Natural Markets Food Group (NMFG), recently opened new locations in three high-profile markets: West Windsor, N.J.; New Canaan, Conn.; and Burlington, ON, Canada. Another store is planned to open in the West Village of Manhattan later this year.

“Mrs. Green’s believes that eating healthy, fresh, natural products is the best way to promote a sustainable lifestyle,” said Sherry Nolan-Schultz, NMFG Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer. “We wanted to give back to the communities that have welcomed us with open arms in a meaningful and positive way. We believe these donations continue our mutually beneficial partnerships – both with our workers, our customers, and our communities.”

The Mrs. Green’s donations include:

  • NEW JERSEY: West Windsor donated $10,000 to America’s Grow-A-Row, a non-profit dedicated to providing a positive impact through volunteer efforts of planting, picking, rescuing and delivering fresh produce to underprivileged communities.
  • ONTARIO: Burlington donated five percent of in-store proceeds – a total of more than $3,000 – to McMaster Children’s Hospital in nearby Hamilton.
  • CONNECTICUT: New Canaan donated almost $4,500 to the New Canaan Nature Center, a non-profit environmental education center and sanctuary that focuses on helping members of the community relate to nature.
  • ILLINOIS: Lincoln Park donated five percent of in-store proceeds – over $6,000 – made during the Spring Celebration Week the store hosted from March 27-April 3, 2014 to the Lincoln Public School “Eat What You Grow” Garden Club, which teaches children the benefits of growing and eating your own vegetables.
  • Each location used in-store proceeds from their Grand Opening Week celebrations to support their new communities. Both the West Windsor and Burlington locations celebrated their openings during the week of March 28 – April 3, 2014, and the New Canaan location opened the week of April 17, 2014.

“Mrs. Green’s Natural Market has proven that they are completely committed to providing fresh produce to not only their customers, but also those folks across New Jersey who are food insecure, through their recent and extremely generous donation to America’s Grow-a-Row,” said Chip Paillex, President and Founder, America’s Grow-a-Row. “Their contribution will ensure that thousands of pounds of free fruits and vegetables will make it onto the plates of those folks who are suffering from hunger across the state.”

“Always wonderful when new businesses in the community support McMaster Children’s Hospital and the children in our region.  We are delighted to be a part of the Mrs. Greens Natural Market’s success,” said Jennifer Laughton, Vice President of Development, McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation.

All three mustards are all-natural and vegan, the Pumpkin Honey Mustard and the Pecan Honey Mustard are also gluten free.

siracha horseradish sauce001 With the very popular emergence of its Sriracha Sauce last summer, Terrapin Ridge Farms is back with Sriracha Horseradish Sauce (8.5 ounces with suggested retail price of $6.70) that combines the popular spicy pepper with horseradish for a one-two punch of flavor and zip. This product is all-natural and gluten free.

Two new jams will debut this summer that combine sweet, savory and spicy. Cinnamon & Clove Tomato Jam (6 ounces with a suggested retail price of $8.00) is the perfect flavor combination of robust tomatoes, cloves, cinnamon and lemon zest.

Introducing Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Chips

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Chips distill all the flavor and aroma of a classic cookie into crunchy, shatteringly delicious “thins.”   Equal parts nostalgic and new, the discs are designed to inspire love at first bite, and keep cookie lovers reaching into the bag for “just one more.”

Oatmeal raisin cookies rank among America’s favorite cookies of all time, and they’ve always been on the short list for Joanne Adirim, the creator of Cookie Chips and Founder/Pastry Chef at HannahMax Baking Company, their manufacturer.   “Our thin, crunchy renditions of other classics like chocolate chip and cinnamon sugar cookies have been so well received that we knew it was time to give lovers of the wholesome oatmeal cookie their due,” says Adirim,  “We started with an old family recipe, using whole rolled oats and juicy mini-raisins, and added extra spark with cinnamon and nutmeg.”

HannahMaxThe Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Chips ingredients label reads more like a passionate home baker’s shopping list than a typical supermarket shelf offering.  Like all Cookie Chips flavors, this new offering is made only with the finest milled cane sugar, rBST hormone-free butter, cage-free eggs and pure Bourbon vanilla. There are never any preservatives, artificial flavors or colors, trans fats, or GMOs.

All that flavor and texture in such a small space (each cookie is about 2 inches across and only 1/16 of an inch thick) is a winning proposition.   One serving of Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Chips – five cookies — weighs in at just 120 calories.    They’re a perfect summer picnic dessert, after school snack, or coffee break treat.

Oatmeal Raisin launches late summer 2014 and joins five signature Cookie Chip flavors – Original Brown Sugar, Cinnamon Sugar, Chocolate Chip, Sea Salted Peanut Butter, and Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip.

Cookie Chips are available at Safeway, Vons, Pavilions, Whole Foods, Jewel, Fresh Market, Earth Fare, Gelson’s, New York City’s iconic Zabars, and at specialty grocers and gourmet stores across the U.S. To find a location near you or to purchase online, visit www.crunchycookiechips.com.
