NATURALLY HEALTHY www.gourmetnews.com n MARCH 2016 n GOURMET NEWS N H 2 2 It All Started With a Backyard Beehive GloryBee ® began in 1975 as a simple honey stand and beekeeping supply store in Dick and Pat Turanski's family garage in Eugene, Ore., where they sold honey farmed from their own backyard. Their dream to provide natural, healthy ingredients to their commu- nity quickly outgrew their small garage, but their commitment to delivering quality products to their customers remained. To this day, GloryBee is known for the honesty and transparency that has been woven into the fabric of the company. In 1983, GloryBee began to expand its product assortment with the addition of the Aunt Patty's ® brand, which was inspired by Co-founder Pat Turanski herself. Pat has al- ways been passionate about cooking, bak- ing and providing her family with nutritious foods made from wholesome ingredients. The initial Aunt Patty's product launch fea- tured Blackstrap Molasses, which is known for its rich flavor as well as its nutritional value. The second generation was added to the business, beginning with Dick and Pat's daughter, RaeJean Wilson, in 1992 and later on, their son, Alan Turanski, in 1999. Rae- Jean and Alan both began working in the sales department at GloryBee, each with the goal to help grow the business within and outside of Eugene. As the company began to further expand, they hired more employ- ees, added more products to their portfolio and focused on improving their efficiencies. Healthy Living, Stewardship, Genuine Relationships and Faith have been estab- lished as the four core values that GloryBee embraces and are reflected in its business practices each and every day. Because of its dedication to the community, it launched two social responsi- bility programs, Save the Bee and Food for Health, in 2012, to di- rectly impact organi- zations dedicated to saving the honey bee and healthy living is- sues. Upon reaching 40 years in business in 2015, the leadership baton was passed from GloryBee's founders to the second genera- tion at a time when most family-owned companies merge with industry giants. Re- maining steadfast to its mission and core values, GloryBee promoted Vice President Alan Turanski to President of the company. RaeJean Wilson, formerly the Vice Presi- dent of Brand Alignment and Stewardship, transitioned to Senior Executive Vice Pres- ident. Dick Turanski assumed the position of Chief Procurement Officer and Pat Tu- ranski serves as Chief Stewardship Officer. Today, the GloryBee and Aunt Patty's brands collec- tively offer over 1,800 wholesale, re- tail and bulk products comprised of a variety of honeys, natural sweeteners, seasonings, oils, seeds, nuts and more. GloryBee continues to pro- vide the highest quality organic and natural ingredients with the same passion it had in the early years of business.

Sweet Meets Heat: Drew's LLC Introduces Organic Mango Habanero Salsa Drew's Organic Mango Habanero Salsa is an incredibly exciting twist to America's fa- vorite condiment and snack food. Drew's started with a base of traditional organic salsa with a tasty blend of organic tomatoes, green bell peppers, onions, garlic and other seasonings, but then they added the "sweet" — organic mangoes — and they added the "heat," organic habanero peppers. In addition to being tantalizingly enjoy- able, the mangoes in Drew's Organic Mango Habanero Salsa are a healthy snack. According to the National Mango Board, mangoes contain more than 20 different vi- tamins and minerals, helping to make them a superfood. Research is underway toward identifying the many phytonutrients found in the fruit to better understand how man- goes benefit human health and nutrition. Historically, mangoes were first grown in India, and in fact, to this day, the mango is the national fruit of India. Now, due to their immense popularity and healthful delicious- ness, mangoes are cultivated in warm re- gions all over the world. Habanero peppers originated in the hot Amazon region of South America. Cultiva- tion eventually spread through Central America, and these peppers now thrive in the heat of the American Southwest. Heat is a word often used in reference to these small but potent pep- pers with orange skin; they are rated between 100,000 and 350,000 on the Scoville scale, which is a commonly- used measurement of the spiciness of pep- pers. In comparison, cayenne peppers are rated between 30,000 and 50,000 on the Scoville scale and jalapeño peppers are only rated between 2,500 and 10,000. In addition to their spici- ness, habanero peppers are also loved for their fruity citrus-like flavor. The end result of combining these seem- ingly opposite foods is a delectably bal- anced organic salsa that starts sweet, ends hot and will leave customers hungry for more. Drew's Organic Mango Habanero Salsa is also Non-GMO Project Verified and certified gluten-free. The SRP is $3.99- $4.49 (12-ounce jar). About Drew's Drew's is a premium producer of organic and all-natural dressings/marinades and sal- sas. All of Drew's products are Non-GMO Project Verified; many varieties are certi- fied gluten-free. All of Drew's products are made in its SQF-certified facility in the beautiful green mountains of Vermont. Pri- vate label options are available.

ESSIAC for Pets an Herbal Legacy Since 1922 ESSIAC ® for Pets is made from the same world-renowned formula that has survived the test of time and is making its way into the health food stores, holistic veterinarians and pet stores. The famous four herb proprietary formula is the same one used by Canadian Nurse Rene M. Caisse since 1922. In 1977, Nurse Rene M. Caisse signed over her rights to the Resperin Corporation Limited in a no- tarized trust agreement which is now known as ESSIAC from Canada International. ESSIAC for Pets is an immune system support that also acts as a gentle cleanser and detoxifier for pets. ESSIAC for Pets is ideal for all pet parents who wish to help their furry loved ones remain in good health. The ES- SIAC formula consists of burdock root, sheep sorrel, slippery elm and Indian rhubarb root. Modern commercial pet foods are a helpful aid for pet owners, but can fall short of pro- viding optimal nutrition to their daily diets. High levels of heat as well as long storage times required for food processing can diminish the nutritional value of the prod- ucts. Today, veterinarians and pet owners alike are increasingly rec- ognizing that nutritional supple- ments can help with better overall health and resistance to serious health concerns. Made from all natural ingredients, its sup- plements provide a holistic approach to your pets' health, helping your dog or cat's im- mune system. Its vegetable capsule formula was formulated in an easy and convenient way for them to take, keeping their well-being at the forefront. When used in combination with a healthy pet food, it can help ensure a better health through better nutrition — naturally. As a buyer, you are con- stantly on the lookout for new and exciting products. ESSIAC for Pets should be on your 2015 buying radar.
