LA FARGE, Wis.— Americans love to snack; snacking now accounts for half of all eating occasions. Indeed, 37 percent of the time, a snack provides one of three key meals of the day. As such, consumers want high-protein, satisfying, snacks available at home and on the go. Organic Valley satisfies that hunger with new Organic Valley Snack Kits — organic, better-for-you snacks with organic cheese, meat, and crackers — an option that provides the only organic trifecta on the market.

“There was a need for delicious, convenient, high-protein snacking,” said Brand Manager Ellie France. “Organic Valley’s cooperative of small family farms produce dairy and meat, so we were in a unique position to deliver an option with real protein, real flavor, and a clean ingredient statement with ingredients you can actually pronounce.”

Meal/snack kits is a $397MM category enjoying explosive double-digit growth in both sales and units,* and adult snack kits are leading this growth, greatly outpacing child-focused offerings.

Snackers today pay more attention to where their food comes from and how it’s made. Organic Valley Snack Kits are a perfect fit, and in an easy-peel tray to boot. And like all Organic Valley products, they’re always organic, which means no antibiotics, synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides or GMOs.

Available in three enticing, all-organic combinations — sharp cheddar and summer sausage; pepper jack and summer sausage; and mozzarella and roasted garlic summer sausage — Organic Valley snack kits offer six slices of meat, six slices of cheese, and six stone-ground wheat crackers. They’re nut-free, 230 calories or fewer, boast nearly 40 percent less sodium than leading competitors, and pack 13-14 grams of protein per serving.

Organic Valley snack kits have an SRP of $4.99, and will be available in mid-March.
