Sokol develops new line of sauces for Sunkist
The partnership includes development and production of a complete line of better-for-you Sunkist branded dressings and sauces in a variety of vibrant and fruit-driven flavours. Created to complement everything from salads to tacos, dipping sauces and more, the range will include gluten-free and nut-free offerings with no GMOs or high fructose corn syrup.
“We are thrilled to partner with Sunkist on this new line of delicious and nutritious sauces and dressings,” said Paul Noble, executive vice-president, Sokol. “This is the first time they have licensed products within the sauces and dressings category, and we couldn’t be happier they are working with our team. Sauces and dressings are an excellent pairing for our two companies, allowing us to bring together Sunkist’s brand of the highest quality citrus ingredients with Sokol’s co-manufacturing and development strengths. We look forward to continuing our partnership and can’t wait to see this inspired line of great-tasting, clean and healthy dressings and sauces hit store shelves.”
“Industry trends indicate that interest in overall wellness continues to be on the rise, and that more people have learned how to create healthy meals at home this past year,” adds Mark Madden, vice-president, marketing and global licensing at Sunkist. “These trends have informed us as we look for new ways to educate consumers on the many nutritional benefits of citrus, and inspire them to incorporate fresh ingredients in their meals and snacks. It was great to collaborate with our partners at Sokol and create this new line of dressings and sauces that will bring vibrant flavour to our consumers’ homemade creations.”
