Fischer & Wieser wins trio of awards at ZestFest

The most prestigious awards in the spicy food industry were recently distributed at the Fiery Food Challenge Awards dinner and Fredericksburg’s Fischer & Wieser Specialty Foods, Inc. came out on top.
Spicy Sesame Stir Fry & Dipping Sauce, Spicy Garlic Steak & Grilling Sauce, and Charred Pineapple Bourbon Sauce took home first, second and third place awards in condiments on Jan. 28, in Irving.
The Fiery Food Challenge, a competition sponsored by The Dallas Morning News, pits products against one another in more than 100 categories. Professional judges evaluate hundreds of sauces, salsas and other spicy treats and award first, second and third place prizes in each category. Awards are proudly displayed at ZestFest, a spicy, zesty and flavorful food event held the same week as the Fiery Food Challenge at the brand new Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas.
Spicy Garlic Steak & Grilling Sauce has now won two awards, including third place in the Table Sauce - Consumer Ready Category in the 2010 ZestFest competition.
Fischer & Wieser’s incredible success is based on the storied American entrepreneurial dream. While the privately held company sells its pantry essentials from coast to coast and internationally, it continues to be owned and operated by members of the Fischer and Wieser families. Today, Fischer & Wieser’s The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce® is the number one specialty condiment sold in Texas and fast gaining popularity all over the country and Mexico.
“We are thrilled to have won these awards,” said Case D. Fischer, CEO and president ”We are passionate about the quality and taste of every product that we make, and when they are recognized by others as being award winners, it just validates what we all work so hard to accomplish every day. My philosophy about what we do is: if you produce a quality product, people will embrace it, and these awards definitely illustrate that!”
