Unilever Drops Labeling Suit Against Maker Of Egg-Free Mayonnaise

December 19, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Unilever, which makes the Hellman’s brand of mayonnaise, has dropped a month-old lawsuit against a three-year old company that markets “Just Mayo”, a mayonnaise-like product that contains no eggs. Unilever alleged that Hampton Creek’s product violates U.S. food labeling rules that require mayonnaise products to contain eggs. Hampton Creek’s product contains plant-based ingredients that substitute for eggs and other proteins. Unilever said it is dropping the suit so Hampton Creek “can address its label directly with industry groups and appropriate regulatory authorities”. Hampton Creek just received $90 million in venture capital funding from Silicon Valley and Asian investors.
