Lancaster Colony, Chick-fil-A Launching Retail Sauce Pilot

By Colin Kellaher

Lancaster Colony Corp. Wednesday said it is teaming with Chick-fil-A Inc. to bring the fast-food chain's popular sauces to store shelves.

The Westerville, Ohio, maker of specialty foods said it will be the sole supplier of Chick-fil-A sauces in a Florida pilot test.

Chick-fil-A said it will offer 16-ounce bottles of its signature Chick-fil-A and Polynesian sauces in all Publix, Target, Walmart and Winn-Dixie stores in Florida.

Lancaster Colony, which already supplies sauces and bread products to the Atlanta-based chain, said it will begin shipments of sauces for the pilot next week, adding that it has exclusive rights under a license agreement to distribute the sauces to retailers around the U.S. should the test prove a success.

Chick-fil-A said the pilot will help determine its next steps for a possible nationwide rollout later this year.
