Tessemae’s Announces Jerry Garcia Partnership; New Product Launch
BALTIMORE, Md. (August 6, 2020) – Tessemae’s, the flavor-forward, organic fresh food company, today announced a brand-new partnership with the Jerry Garcia Family. With a strong team connection and desire to push the boundaries of “traditional” health food, the partnership’s first co-branded collaboration is a saucy tribute to the rock legend: Cosmic Jerry Sauce. The new product combines clean eating with creative flavors, using a blend of honey, mustard and buffalo sauce with a hint of rich umami. Cosmic Jerry Sauce is available exclusively online at Tessemaes.com, and fans will receive a limited-edition Jerry-branded tie-dye buff free with the purchase of two bottles during its pre-sale from August 6 – August 23.
“A healthier world starts with what you eat! It’s not only the quality of the food that is important but also the intention with which it was made,” says Trixie Garcia, Jerry Garcia’s daughter. “The Jerry Garcia family values Tessemae’s commitment to creating all natural and organic dressings and sauces. That’s why a family-owned company like Tessemae’s is the perfect partner for our dreams, and our taste buds! Why not work together for a better tomorrow? For our bodies and the planet!”
Tessemae’s and the Jerry Garcia Family share a mutual admiration for “going the road less traveled.” Both innovators that inspire in their respective markets, the companies designed Cosmic Jerry Sauce as an imaginative collaboration without restrictions – this “everything” spicy-sweet sauce can be used as a dip, dressing, grilling sauce, marinade or glaze for fish, pork, chicken, beef, tofu, vegetables and more.
“Cosmic Jerry Sauce is unique, just like Jerry’s music,” says Greg Vetter, co-founder and CEO of Tessemae’s. “Food brings people together, and this partnership allows us to create a community with music. We couldn’t be prouder of the partnership with the Jerry Garcia Family and the work we’ve all put into making this something that honors the legacy of Jerry Garcia with what Tessemae’s does best – simplifying food to amplify life.”

About Jerry Garcia:
Jerry Garcia (1942-1995) created an unparalleled legacy across the American landscape, most notably in his role as a founding member, singer, songwriter and lead guitarist of the Grateful Dead. Garcia’s unmistakable guitar tone enchanted multitudes of “Deadheads” throughout the band’s 30-year career and beyond. His work with the Jerry Garcia Band, Old and in the Way, Legion of Mary, Garcia/Grisman, and projects with Merl Saunders, only scratch at the surface of his musical influences, as he set out to master the Great American Songbook. Unequivocally devoted to the craft of music, Garcia continues to inspire future generations through the body of work he has left behind and his creative spirit.
