EAU CLAIRE, WI -- June 2, 2022 -- Silver Spring Foods, a subsidiary of Huntsinger Farms, the world’s largest grower and processor of horseradish, took home three medals at the prestigious World-Wide Mustard Competition.

Each award year is a testament to the vision and ingenuity of our food innovation team,” said Eric Rygg, President of Silver Spring Foods. “Having our new mustards win medals was especially meaningful for our team who dedicated the entire two years of the pandemic to mastering the formulations.”
