The largest U.S. organic farmers’ cooperative has added a grab ‘n go snack line to its product roster.
Organic Valley Snack Kits from La Farge, Wisconsin-based Organic Valley, which begin shipping in mid-March, feature cheese, crackers and meat in one pack. The line includes three varieties: sharp cheddar and summer sausage; pepper jack and summer sausage; and mozzarella and roasted garlic summer sausage.
The packs, which will retail for a suggested $4.99, have 230 or fewer calories, pack 13 or 14 grams of protein and have nearly 40 percent less sodium than other, similar packs.
“There was a need for delicious, convenient, high-protein snacking,” says Ellie France, Organic Valley brand manager. “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.”
