LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. (February 27, 2014) — Sometimes, simpler really is better. With its All Natural Ice Cream already a popular choice among fans, Turkey Hill Dairy is adding a simplified beverage to its iced tea line-up with the launch of Turkey Hill Organic Tea.
The new offering is certified organic by the USDA and is the first organic product for the Lancaster County, Pa.-based company.
The four iced tea flavors — Mint Organic Green Tea, Organic Green Tea, Peach Organic Black Tea and Organic Sweet Black Tea — are free of synthetic additives and dyes and processed according to USDA organic standards. The tea leaves used to brew the drinks are certified as grown and processed without artificial fertilizers and pesticides. The flavors are sweetened with organic cane sugar and organic honey.
"Many of our products and flavors have started based on ideas and input from our fans, and this one is no different," said Turkey Hill Dairy president John Cox. "Organic iced tea was a request we've heard many times over the years, and we felt the time was right for our first organic product."
According to a 2013 Transparency Market Research report, organic foods are among the fastest growing products in supermarkets, with demand expected to grow more than 15 percent to $187 billion by 2019.
Turkey Hill Organic Teas are available in 16-ounce pints and distributed throughout central Pennsylvania and northeastern Pennsylvania wherever Turkey Hill products are sold. For more information about Turkey Hill, visit turkeyhill.com.
