Naturipe Farms Develops Ready-to-Eat Snack Packs
SALINAS, CA - I’ll admit almost too readily that I like to snack; sometimes my lunch consists of just snacks I throw into a bag. Now that I’m more aware of health requirements and how food is made, I try to find snacks that are both better for you while not tasting too blasé. And I do believe that Naturipe hit that nail right on the head: a new snack pack line was released that features fresh berries and fruit with protein-rich cheese and nuts for the berry lover’s perfect snack pack. You had me at berries.
“Our new Naturipe Snacks say, ‘We are here for you—morning, noon, and night,’” said CarrieAnn Arias, Vice President of Marketing. “Whether you need energy to power through the busiest times or you want to kick back with a tasty, healthful snack, we curated these Naturipe Snack combinations so that they feel like an indulgence.”
According to the press release, health, convenience, and snacking are three components that continue to grow rapidly in the produce business. Demand grows as consumers focus on healthier, convenient options. Naturipe developed the fruit snacks with health and portability in mind; the ready-to-eat packs contain the protein, fiber, vitamin C, and calcium consumers want in a variety of delicious combos:
- Classic & Sharp with Grapes and Blueberries, Roasted Sea Salt Almonds, and Sharp Cheddar Cheese
- Sweet & Zesty with Strawberries, Cracked Black Pepper Cashews, and Aged Swiss Cheese
- Bold & Spicy with Grapes, Chili Mango Cashews, and Pepper Jack Cheese
- Sweet & Crunchy with Strawberries and Blueberries, Cinnamon Almonds, and White Cheddar Cheese
“Providing the freshest berries is and has always been our priority, but we realize that consumers today are looking for more than just fruit. They want a balanced, nutrient-rich snack. That’s why we’ve added protein and dairy sources to this next generation of Naturipe Snacks,” said Steven Ware, Vice President and General Manager of Naturipe Snacks. “We are excited about this innovation at Naturipe, and we can’t wait for you to see what’s coming next.”
These trays expand the Naturipe Snacks line which also includes Naturipe Bites™ and Naturipe Snacks™ Fruit Cups, and are available at Giant-Eagle, H-E-B, and soon at Kroger.
