A NATURAL condiment that does not compromise on flavour is what makes McGrath Fine Food dressings so successful, according to owner Jan McGrath.
Mrs McGrath said they were committed to creating dressings that contained no artificial preservatives but plenty of taste.
“My husband (Lawrence) had the idea of creating a healthy product that people could enjoy and would improve the taste of other foods,” Mrs McGrath said.
“He didn’t like that people thought healthy foods had to compromise taste.”
Her son and manager Jesse McGrath said customers were starting to change their food habits.
“The supermarkets are slowly figuring it out but with all the fresh things around people are starting to reconsider their motives,” he said.
Mr McGrath said people were doing more research into what ingredients went into products.
The McGrath’s dressings have won five awards this year and Mr McGrath put it down to innovation.
Their poppyseed dressing won a gold medal and the title of the champion savoury preserves at the Royal Hobart Fine Food Awards.
They won another gold for the curry mango tango and a bronze for their tomato honey ’n’ spice flavour.
Another gold medal was added to the collection for the poppyseed dressing, won at the Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards.
Mrs McGrath said winning awards at national shows meant McGrath Fine Foods could play its part in putting Albury on the map.
