PLANO, Texas — Stryve Foods, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNAX) (“Stryve” or “the Company”), an emerging healthy snack and eating platform disrupting traditional consumer packaged goods (CPG) categories, and a leader in the air-dried meat snack industry in the United States, announced a major new distribution agreement with 7-Eleven, the world’s largest convenience retailer with more than 77,000 stores worldwide, that will bring three flavors of its popular Vacadillos carne seca air-dried meat snacks for the first time to nearly 8,000 7-Eleven domestic convenience stores, a record new sale for the product.
The nationwide order from 7-Eleven comes with a commitment for a standing floor display that will showcase prominently three Vacadillos flavors – Chile Lime, Habanero and Scorpion. The meat snacks will be shipped in January 2022 and will be available in stores by February.
Stryve is also expanding its existing business with 7-Eleven. Stryve’s 2.25 oz Stryve Original Biltong and 2.25 oz Stryve Spicy Peri Peri Biltong are gaining distribution at the more than 2,800 Speedway convenience stores recently acquired by 7-Eleven in the United States.
Stryve and Vacadillos sales are the fastest growing for the meat snacks category in U.S. convenience stores, with 343% incremental yearly revenue growth*.
“Stryve’s new record high Vacadillos sales order in approximately 90% of 7-Eleven’s U.S. convenience stores and Stryve Biltong product expansion into 7-Eleven’s recently acquired Speedway convenience stores represents the latest terrific opportunities and proving grounds for Stryve products,” said Joe Oblas, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Stryve. “Vacadillos standing floor display placements typically correlate strongly with future permanent distribution in most retail locations we have placed them to-date, driving sales velocity, trial, branding awareness and consumer engagement.”
Oblas continued, “Our portfolio of healthy, delicious, air-dried meat snacks from Stryve Biltong and Vacadillos are building sales momentum and popularity with consumers from coast to coast, with record growth that is dominating the category and the benchmark for the lucrative meat snacks category.”
