PURCHASE, NY -- PepsiCo Inc. has agreed to acquire Bare Foods Co. (doing business as Bare Snacks), a U.S.-based maker of baked fruit and vegetable snacks.
Upon closing, Bare Snacks will continue to operate independently from its headquarters in San Francisco with its leadership reporting into PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay North America division.
Bare Snacks was founded in 2001 by a family-owned organic apple farm in Washington, that began selling packaged baked apple chips in local farmers' markets. It has expanded to become a leader in apple, banana and coconut chips and recently expanded into vegetable chips. Bare products are made from simple ingredients that are baked, not fried.
