organic cheese-style dip. The dip

natural preservative.
At the other end of the
spectrum from a small specialty company like Loca is
Philadelphia-based premium deli
meat specialist Dietz & Watson,
which has updated its Originals
line of snack product to include
more organic offerings.
The Originals line - which debuted two years ago and includes
prepackaged meats, cheeses,
franks and sausages - now
includes snacking cheeses, beef
jerky, alive pouches, fire-roasted
vegetables and more.
The line's three varieties of
2.2-oz pouched olives include
Seasoned, Green and Citrus. Also

included are classic proteins,
such as Truffle Salami, Sopressata,
Pepper Salami, Chorizo, Genoa
Salami and an Herb de Provence
Salami. In addition, there are
4-oz packs of meat and cheese
medallion and mini paninos that
include pepperoni, Genoa salami
or prosciutto wrapped over mozzarella cheese.
All of the items are organic
and NAE (no antibiotics ever) and
come in resealable packaging.
In other news from an industry
stalwart, Medina, Ohio-based
Sandridge Food Corp. recently
received its organic certification
for soups. Organic versions of
Chicken Noodle, Tomato Bisque
and Vegetable Chili are among
the company's current offerings
for perimeter prepared foods
departments.
Seattle-based The Essential
Baking Company, meanwhile,
has added garlic bread to its line
of Take & Bake breads, which are
made with organic flour and sold
in grocery instore bakeries.
The 16-inch loaf made its
debut in the shelf-stable line at
the Natural Products Expo Show
in March.
