Uncle Dan's® Salad Dressings, Dips, and Seasonings Expands Into All of Canada

Chris Stephens

Beginning in May of this year, Uncle Dan's Salad Dressings, Dips, and Seasonings began expanding into eastern Canada. Uncle Dan’s products can now be found in over 1,000 retail outlets across all of Canada from Victoria, B.C. to St. John's, Newfoundland. 


“Uncle Dan’s has been the number one selling dry mix salad dressing and dip mix in western Canada since 1971,” says President Chris Stephens. “We’ve been working to expand into the rest of Canada for some time and it’s exciting to see that hard work paid off.” 

Approximately 220 new stores were added from Sobey's Ontario and Atlantic divisions in Canada. That’s in addition to 690 stores including independent grocers; Safeway; Buy-Low; IGA; Sobey's West, East and Atlantic divisions; as well as Save-On-Foods with 180 stores, Fed Coop with 220 stores, Quality Foods, and Fairway stores. There are seven different SKU's available depending on the retailer. Some outlets list all seven SKUs and others like Sobey's have chosen to list four SKUs nationally in all their stores across Canada.

Uncle Dan’s worked with longtime distributor Star Marketing, Ltd. to make this expansion possible. Star Marketing has done a masterful job of overseeing the listing process.

A Gluten-Free Good Time!

A Gluten-Free Good Time!

Chris Stephens

The Gluten-Free Expo in Vancouver, BC early January may have been low on gluten, but it was packed with fun and flavor! Uncle Dan’s had a corner booth at the show, where Chris Stephens, General Manager, handed out samples of Dan’s dressings and seasonings, paired beautifully with other gluten-free grub. Neal Brothers mayo provides an excellent base for Dan’s dressings packets. Terra Exotic Vegetable Chips are colorful, funky and supremely dippable! Lundberg Rice Chips are another dipping classic, straight off the farm! All in all, the event provided an unparalleled opportunity to meet other creative food producers with products for the gluten-free community, while meeting awesome, friendly British Columbians and Vancouverites, and getting to do what we love-- share good food and Dan’s dressing. Thank you to everyone who came out to the show, all our new friends and fans, everyone who helped volunteer at the show and our booth, and all the other exhibitors who made the expo a gluten-free good time!
