WhiteWave Foods, vending BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- January 2017 -- WhiteWave Foods is excited to announce the release of Horizon® Organic Cheese Snacks to vending operators nationwide. They are available in three single-serve varieties -- Mozzarella Sticks, Cheddar Bites and Colby & Jack Bites -- that are all Certified USDA Organic and made with organic milk from family farms across the U.S.

Considering 73 percent of consumers are interested in foods labeled organic1 and cheese snacking is a popular choice -- up 45% from 2014 to 20152, Horizon Organic Cheese Snacks are an on-trend option for vending operators. They also satisfy the more than 50 percent of families who are buying more organic products than a year ago3.

Snacking is something that happens every day for most consumers, but it's often hard for consumers to find the choices they want when they are away from home. By offering the organic snacks consumers wish for, an operation can become a destination. Consumers are willing to pay 142 percent more for organic cheese sticks, with the potential for an increased profit of up to $0.14 per unit vs. conventional cheese.4

As the largest organic brand,2 Horizon is the brand consumers know and trust. Consumers love that each cheese snack comes with 7-8 grams of protein and is a good source of protein. But what's even better is what's not there -- no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Horizon products are made with milk produced using sustainable, organic practices which means there are no synthetic pesticides or GMOs involved. Plus, their cows are never treated with antibiotics or added growth hormones.*
