Located in Essex, MD, Tessemae’s All Natural is a salad dressing and condiment company founded by brothers Greg, Brian, and Matt Vetter, who started with a simple dressing recipe created and used by their mom throughout their childhood. Says Matt Vetter, “Our commitment to healthy eating and living is the core of our mission of providing consumers with simple, yet delicious food made with only real ingredients.”

Tessemae’s fresh salad dressings were launched in 2009 and are now sold at a range of retail grocery chains across the country, including Whole Foods, Kroger, Safeway, The Fresh Market, and Costco. Products include 13 salad dressings and 11 condiments, including mayo, mustard, and ketchup, among others.

Available in both bottles and condiment pouches, Tessemae’s salad dressings are filled at its 36,000-sq-ft manufacturing plant in Essex. The facility operates two packaging lines: an in-line bottle filling system, and a Prodo-Pak vertical form/fill/seal line for the sachets.
