Snyder’s-Lance is debuting a number of new products across several of its brands, including a variety of options that the company says will satisfy consumers’ on-the-go lifestyles, better-for-you diets and general need for premium snacks.
“Snacking has become a new way of life as consumers have less time to sit down for big meals,” said Rod Troni, chief marketing officer at Snyder’s-Lance. “So let’s celebrate snacks. Whether it’s enjoying snacks with friends or during a road trip with the family, we believe these new, quality snacks from Snyder’s-Lance can enhance those moments and make them even better.
“With our recent acquisition of Diamond Foods, our total company will have even more innovation in the future, including new items from Kettle Chips, Kettle Brand, Pop Secret, Emerald and Diamond of California,” added Troni.
