479° today announced that its delectable, low-calorie popcorn will soon be available in more than 1,200 Kroger stores nationwide, including Kroger-owned banners such as Fred Meyer, QFC, King Soopers, and Ralphs. Starting in November 2013, store shelves will be stocked with big, beautiful snack bags containing the mouthwatering flavors 479° is known for, making the Kroger family of stores the first major retailer in the grocery channel to bring 479° to market.
To celebrate the partnership, Kroger will be the first to carry 479°’s newest flavor: Toasted Seaweed + Sesame. This on-trend snack features 479°’s signature light and fluffy organic heirloom popcorn, tossed with nutty sesame and flakes of lightly toasted seaweed.
In addition to Toasted Seaweed + Sesame, Kroger stores will offer the rest of 479°’s new product line: Sea Salt, White Cheddar + Black Truffle, Creamery Butter, and Sea Salt Caramel. All 479° products are made with organic heirloom popcorn, are gluten-free, non-GMO, and low in calories.
479° is dedicated to mindful business practices, quality products, and hand-picked ingredients. The company is committed to producing a sustainable product everyone can feel good about eating, while Kroger is innovating their chip aisle with snacks that taste better, and are better for you.
“We chose to partner with Kroger because their values align with ours,” says Jean Arnold, Founder of 479°. ”It’s a perfect match. I’m so excited to bring our snacks to people around the country in partnership with Kroger.”
