We have all the capabilities to be the smart, efficient solution to meet our customer’s needs.

Some of the products we are most proud of are our school-compliant products. We have an assortment of Whole Grain Snack options that meet nutritional and dietary guidelines within K12 locations. Some of those items include staples such as our Blueberry and French Toast Snackbreads, to our newly formulated Pumpkin Chocolate, which was a direct request from the kids that we cater to! The list also includes an array of cookies and breakfast rounds (with flax seed and carrots) that everyone loves!
