Girard's Dressings Wins Dressing of the Year and Sauce of the Year



ATLANTA, GA - Girard’s Dressings is known for its bold and flavorful dressings that incorporate flavors from around the globe, but now it has received full honors for its inventive products, recently winning the 2019 Dressing of the Year and Sauce of the Year. The Association for Dressings and Sauces (ADS) gave honors to GFF, Inc.’s imaginative Mango Gochujang Sauté Sauce and Mint Lime with Tequila Dressing.

Dave Nicholson, CEO, HACO US"On behalf of GFF, we are happy to accept these distinguished industry awards from the Association for Dressings and Sauces," said Dave Nicholson, CEO of HACO US, parent company of GFF, Inc.

The Dressing of the Year and Sauce of the Year awards are intended to recognize and celebrate truly innovative and delicious products, and winners are determined through blind taste tests. Of course, GFF, Inc. was more than up for the challenge, and proceeded to wow the judges with two of its mouth-watering products.

This is the first year that GFF, Inc. has won both Sauce of the Year and Dressing of the Year

The Mango Gochujang Sauté Sauce and Mint Lime with Tequila Dressing were the company’s winning entries, with the awards presented at the ADS Annual Meeting “Playing an Instrumental Role.” This is the first year that GFF, Inc. has won both Sauce of the Year and Dressing of the Year, though it is no stranger to the winner’s circle, as this is the second time the company has won Dressing of the Year—and it’s not hard to see why.

“Our Korean-style Mango Gochujang Sauté Sauce gets its unique flavor from the combination of various red peppers with roasted and fermented soybean. The savory sauce is balanced with sweet mango and cilantro highlighted with specks of black sesame,” said Mary dela Peña, VP of Research, Development and Quality at GFF, Inc., in a press release.

The Mint Lime with Tequila Dressing offers a delicate blend of aromatic lime, citrus, and spearmint notes, complemented with chipotle pepper and a dash of tequila, with a sweet hint. Though it’s called a dressing, the Mint Lime with Tequila Dressing works equally well as a sauce to add flavor without excessive calories, sodium, or sugar.

Congratulations to Girard’s Dressings for its well-deserved wins. AndNowUKnow will continue to report on award-winning products.
