Nature Valley Expands Beyond Traditional Granola Bars With New Products

Nature Valley’s new soft-baked oatmeal product and loose, bagged granola make it easier to enjoy the taste of Nature Valley on the go, the company says.

“Consumers have been asking for different variations of our classic Nature Valley granola bars for years. First, we responded with different flavor and texture combinations—from sweet and salty, to nuts and fruit,” says Michelle Peterson, associate marketing director for Nature Valley. “Now, we’re tackling new product lines that consumers have been asking for, and that complement our core business as the creator of the granola bar category.”
