Our History

From Small Beginnings Come Very Big Things

Founded in 1982 as the Del Sol Food Company, Inc., BRIANNAS Fine Salad Dressings grew out of a desire to create a superior product with family pride and consistent high quality. BRIANNAS signature salad dressings originally began in Austin, Texas, handcrafted in small batches in a little family kitchen. We’re proud to have now grown to become a world-class brand with an extremely passionate consumer following.

In 2019, BRIANNAS made salad dressing history again with the launch of our new Organic Salad Dressings. Bursting with our famous flavor and made with only premium organic ingredients, they offer consumers an organic counterpart to some of our most beloved dressings, as well as several new varieties. They are organic dressings like only BRIANNAS can create!

Our Vision for Growth is Much Larger Than Salad Dressing Alone

In 2017, Del Sol Food Company joined the Sabormex family of leading companies under La Costeña Group. Based in Mexico City, La Costeña Group is a globally recognized leader in the packaged foods industry, with Sabormex producing the top-selling salad dressing in Mexico. From the start, this acquisition was a mutually beneficial partnership between two companies with shared values and ideals.

We are both family-owned, financially strong, and fully committed to our customers, employees, and communities. The support of Sabormex allows us to meet increased demand through expanded facilities and product lines without compromising our values, philosophy, or products. BRIANNAS is proudly headquartered in Brenham, Texas making delicious salad dressings with the same commitment to using only the finest ingredients and an unwavering dedication to quality.

BRIANNAS goes global! You can find our salad dressing on shelves in Canada, England, France, Brazil, Mexico and Thailand.
