BRIANNAS has retained high quality, small batch, and unique flavors since our founding over 40 years ago. With conventional, organic, and avocado oil product lines, BRIANNAS offers consumers tasty and substantial salad dressings and remains eager to continue providing consistently flavorful, high-quality options.

The Process

BRIANNAS is exceptionally intentional about the process used to craft flavorful recipes and maintain consistent quality in every bottle of salad dressing.

BRIANNAS facilty

Having initially found success by handcrafting recipes in a small family kitchen, BRIANNAS has retained the small batch process despite the company's exponential growth. Optimal flavor and consistency require a process that involves adding select, premium ingredients to each recipe by hand. It's this hands-on attention to detail that makes BRIANNAS recipes burst with flavor.
