 Summer Fresh, Canada’s leading prepared salad and dip manufacturer, is celebrating three decades of revolutionizing the fresh gourmet specialty food industry as we know it today. Thirty years ago, Summer Fresh identified the need for healthy ready-to-eat options for consumers with diverse flavour profiles. The family-owned company, who got its humble start producing in their home kitchen, quickly became a grocery store staple, giving Canadians hummus, dip and salad options made from fresh, simple ingredients with unmatched flavour.

To commemorate this milestone anniversary, Summer Fresh announced the launch of its two new limited edition hummus flavours: Dill Pickle Hummus and Salt & Vinegar Hummus. Often referred to as the “Original Canadian Hummus” brand, it’s no surprise Summer Fresh is celebrating its anniversary by giving consumers great-tasting hummus with innovative iconic flavour offerings.

“Our team wanted to celebrate our 30th anniversary by doing what we do best – having fun with food,” says Summer Fresh Founder and President, Susan Niczowski. “This includes living by the philosophy of ‘Food is Fashion’ – setting trends and highlighting the most exciting flavour combinations from season to season. It is exactly this philosophy that has made us the number one brand for prepared salads and dips year after year. Needless to say, our new hummus flavours mark the beginning of thirty more years of innovation. We couldn’t be more proud to share them with consumers obsessed with great taste and who feel good about snacking just as much as we do.”

Inspired by Niczowski’s love of potato chips, the brand’s new hummus flavours are loaded with mouthwatering, guilt-free “chip flavour,” taking snacking to a whole new level. Both hummus are made with protein-packed Canadian chickpeas, tahini and olive oil, to satisfy cravings and keep you fuller, longer. For a limited time only, find these first-of-their-kind hummus flavours at grocery retailers across the country including Metro, Food Basics, Federated Co-op and more.



All of Summer Fresh’s products are proudly made locally and in small batches. This includes their new limited-edition flavours, their iconic Original Hummus, Tzatziki, and Baba Ghanouj, first-to-market products like their Artichoke & Asiago Dip and 7 Grain Salad, as well as a complete line of plant-based dips and salad dressings. For more information, recipes and a complete list of product offerings, please visit
