The Dorothy Lynch Home Style Dressing was developed in the 1940’s by Dorothy Lynch while she and her husband ran the restaurant in the local legion club in St. Paul, NE. As it grew in popularity patrons of the lodge began to bring in bottles and jars from home asking them to be filled, thus leading to the commercialization of the product.
The MEP and Food Processing Center (FPC) helped us improve the safety and quality of our products during production and storage, while meeting the requirements of the FDA. Having this training available to us locally, as well as the affordability of the training, is a great benefit to a small food manufacturer like ourselves.
The ability to access the expertise of the FPC and Nebraska MEP to improve our processes was extremely helpful.
