Spectrum Introduces Organic Olive Oil Mayonnaise

New Variety joins Wasabi, Roasted Garlic, and Dijon in Artisan Line

PETALUMA, CA, July 8, 2005—Spectrum Naturals, the #1 overall mayonnaise brand in the natural foods category*, announces the addition of Olive Oil Mayonnaise to its Artisan line of organic mayonnaise.

Spectrum Artisan Olive Oil Mayonnaise joins Wasabi, Roasted Garlic and Dijon to the organic line, introduced late last year.

The company that was the first to introduce a canola oil-based mayonnaise now takes the finest organic cold pressed extra virgin Arbequina olive oil from Spain and creates a smooth, creamy mayonnaise with all the organic goodness of Spectrum. As with the three original Spectrum Artisan varieties, Olive Oil Mayonnaise is certified organic and kosher and contains no hydrogenated fat, sugar, corn syrup or preservatives.

"This newest addition to our Artisan line of organic mayonnaise opens new doors of creativity to chefs and home cooks," said Neil Blomquist, Spectrum's president and chief executive officer. "It's made for -- and by -- people who really care about the flavor and quality of their foods."

The Spectrum Organic Artisan Mayonnaise collection is packaged in 12-ounce glass jars. The suggested retail price for all four varieties is $5.39. The products are now available in supermarkets, natural foods stores and specialty retailers nationwide. For more information, recipes, or a store locator, please visit www.spectrumorganics.com.
