A little ABOUT US
Several years ago, I approached my chef-trained, foodie friend (with an incredible palate) for assistance in creating a great vinaigrette to encourage consumption of healthy greens and vegetables for my daughters who were competitive athletes. My friend taught me the basics and introduced me to white balsamic vinegar. I experimented for many years before creating a white balsamic vinaigrette that perfectly suited my family’s tastes. Over the years, this liquid gold was regularly requested by friends from near and far!
When I found myself an empty nester, I contemplated resuming my career, but chose instead, to share this beautifully-balanced dressing with the community. In January 2015, the family-run Gigi’s Foods was established with the introduction of our signature White Balsamic Vinaigrette. Since then, other varietals have been added: Lemon Garlic Vinaigrette, Apple Cider Vinaigrette, Avocado Vinaigrette, Greek Vinaigrette and Ice Wine Vinaigrette. These dressings are handcrafted in small batches at our production unit in Oakville, Ontario, to ensure quality and consistency. No sugar or preservatives are added, and local ingredients are sourced when possible. We have recently ventured into preparing dips, with wholesome quality remaining the top priority. Currently, we offer only Avocado/Garlic Dip.
