ATHENS, Texas—ZUBI’S, formally Zubiate’s Cocina, proudly announces the debut of its innovative, re- branded, all-natural, top 8 allergen free dips and salsa. Previously manufactured in Dallas, ZUBI’S is now produced in small batches at the ZUBI Lazy W Ranch in Athens, Texas. Each batch of ZUBI’S dips and salsa is hand-made by a small, quality-driven local crew using simple organic ingredients, and is preservative-free, plant-based, and most importantly, delicious.
Moving the production to the ZUBI Lazy W Ranch affords ZUBI’S the pathway to scale into a 100% sustainable operation in that it grows many of the hard to source ingredients on the land, as well as, utilizes fertilization and compost from this zero-waste facility. In addition, the ranch relies on a solar power field for powering the facility and uses some of the purest water from the nearby Wilcox Aquifer and many neighboring streams and rivers.
Research has shown that living in the United States increases your risk of developing a top-8 allergy. These are life-threatening reactions in response to milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean. All of ZUBI’S products are made with love and contain only the freshest ingredients that are free from the top 8 allergens. In fact, their plant-based cheese dip is the first in the world, created in Texas, that uses sweet peppers as its base, rather than peanuts or cashews.
