New foodservice products are avail- able in 1- and 5-gallon pails and include: organic Pacific Coast sea salt caramel sauce; vegan salted caramel sauce, made with organic ingredients (except for hemp milk, which is not available organic); and organic dark chocolate sauce, made with Theo chocolate.

A stint serving as Peace Corps volunteers with rural Madagascar vanilla farmers led to the creation of this business. Devoted to ethically and ecologically sourcing high-quality vanilla beans, Lafaza offers one-fold and two- fold pure vanilla extracts (in gallon and quart sizes), two commercial grades of vanilla beans (in quarter-pound and 1-pound resealable bags), and pure ground vanilla powder (in wide-mouth half-pound jars and 1-kilo foil bags). In addition to partnering directly with farmers and paying higher rates for beans, Lafaza provides training and organizational support for its suppliers. Beans are grown in com- plex agroforestry systems that allow for soil regeneration and water filtration and benefit animal habitats. lafaza.com The Peanut Shop of Williamsburg Virginia Peanuts. Fewer than 3 percent of all Virginia peanuts grown are graded as super extra-large, making the company's three new products quite rare. Hand-cooked, seasoned, and packaged in 10-pound foil bags, The Peanut Shop's new Virginia peanut offerings come in salt-and- vinegar seasoned, hot habanero spiced chile pepper, and Crab Town seasoned. thepeanutshop.com The Gracious Gourmet Date Apricot Spread Lafaza Foods Ground Vanilla and Vanilla Beans Donsuemor Traditional Madeleines and French Almond Cakes Harney & Sons Capsules in hot cinnamon sunset SPRING 2014 51 productroundup_foodservice.indd 51 3/18/14 8:15 AM
