85% of global consumers eat at least one snack for sustenance and one snack for indulgence each day*. This means more opportunities for you to surprise, delight, and nourish your customers with hand-crafted, high-quality items that fit into their busy day.


Eating on the go has become a normal part of our lives. Busy students, parents, and other go-getters are seeking quick fuel for their next activity or maybe an indulgent, bite-sized treat to bolster their emotional state or as a mini-celebration for a small, personal triumph. A handful of trail mix before a morning meeting, a few antioxidant-rich blueberries coated in chocolate, or a beautiful snacking bar featuring an exotic flavor combination… any of these might fit the bill for your snack-seeking customer.
