FORT COLLINS, Colo., Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Rodelle, Inc., a world leader in vanilla flavors, is proud to announce its 80th Anniversary. Founded in 1936, Rodelle has continuously been a top producer of high-quality vanilla extract for professional and home baking applications. When the Rodelle family moved to Denver, Colorado from the south of France in 1936, they realized their new country lacked a high-quality pure vanilla extract for their recipes. The family of avid bakers decided to produce their own premium vanilla extract and founded Rodelle Laboratories to revolutionize the standard for gourmet flavors.

In today's connected world, people want to know much more about the food they are buying and consuming than they have in the past. Rodelle's direct relationship with vanilla farmers and farm-to-table supply chain is a result of a commitment to that transparency. Over the years, Rodelle has placed a serious focus on projects that will improve the overall standard of living in vanilla bean growing regions such as Madagascar and Uganda. In 2015, Rodelle partnered with SAHANALA Madagascar, an association of more than 3,500 vanilla farmers. SAHANALA is an employee-owned cooperative that gives 100% of profits back to each farmer-owner. In 2016, Rodelle will be working to help the farmers increase the quality of their vanilla beans and farming best practices. This strong partnership establishes a vanilla extract that is crafted from farm to table by Rodelle's team of vanilla experts. Rodelle is thrilled to contribute to SAHANALA members, improve vanilla farmers' quality of life, and help to build a middle class in Madagascar. Rodelle is dedicated to going beyond creating better baking products, it is focused on changing lives.

Rodelle, Inc. was founded on a relentless commitment to high quality specialty food products and continues to provide home bakers and culinary professionals with the finest ingredients on the market. From premium Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans to Rodelle's Dutch-processed baking cocoa and gourmet spice blends, quality still comes first at Rodelle. Now located in Fort Collins, the Rodelle facility is a 67,000 square foot space with the country's most state of the art vanilla extraction capabilities. Rodelle utilizes innovative technology and efficient bottling, combining all aspects of the business in its wind-powered location. As Rodelle enters its 80th year, the company is excited to impact the vanilla growing regions, develop additional products for its highly-regarded line of superior baking essentials and spice blends, and create exciting digital content for consumers at www.rodellekitchen.com.
