Eau Claire, Wis. (PRWEB) March 8, 2007
Silver Spring Gardens, Inc. has continued its award-winning ways by being recognized for the sixth straight year at the Napa Valley Mustard Festival. Silver Spring will be awarded five medals at the March 16 ceremony, highlighted by their Organic Dill Mustard earning a gold medal in the organic category.
To accompany the gold medal, Silver Spring's Organic Horseradish Mustard will be awarded the bronze, earning them two out of three medals to dominate the organic category. Silver Spring will also be awarded silver medals for three mustards including:
- Deli Style Mustard for the deli brown category
- Consumer-favorite Beer 'n Brat Mustard in the horseradish category
- Silver Spring's new Peppadew Mustard Sauce, which features the exotic sweet piquante fruit found only in South Africa, in the pepper category
A recent study from online market analyst Datamonitor found that many Americans are trying to eat more healthily by purchasing organic products rather than standard versions.
"We're proud to earn gold and bronze in the organic category," said Silver Spring president Ed Schaefer. "Consumers today no longer have to look for organic products in one designated section, but the entire supermarket, and our organic mustards add zest to just about any meal."
Established to promote the California wine country as a destination during the winter months, the Napa Valley Mustard Festival's World-Wide Mustard Competition pits the tastiest condiments in the world against one another to decipher the best. This year's festival, the 14th Annual, began on January 27 and will run through March 31. More than 500 restaurants, caterers, wineries, mustard and gourmet companies, as well as artists and sponsors, will present their finest products throughout the festival. All the proceeds from the festival will benefit Napa Valley non-profit art, historical, cultural and educational organizations.
