A lot can change in the course of a year, and Voyage Foods is a testament to that. Moving from the development phase to retail aisles, the company's Peanut-Free Spread is on a whirlwind journey, with its latest stop being the shelves of Sprouts Farmers Market stores nationwide.
"Consumers are currently facing many challenges when shopping for groceries due to supply chain constraints, climate change, allergens on the rise, and increasing inflation. As a mission-driven food manufacturer, we recognize the deep-rooted value that food holds in consumers' lives, and we have a unique opportunity to ensure people can continue enjoying the foods they love," said Adam Maxwell, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Voyage Foods. "As we continue to increase our distribution and retail footprint, we're continuing to tell the story of how our products support, honor, and uphold the traditions we have around what and how we eat—especially when those traditions are threatened by external forces. We're excited to work with retailers nationwide and introduce our Peanut-Free Spread to the masses."
Voyage Foods' retail launch is kicking off with its Peanut-Free Spread, a roasted seed spread that offers the same rich flavor of traditional peanut butter, just without the nuts, a release stated. The offering will appear in over 350 Sprouts locations as well as in other major retail chains, including Fairway Market, Nugget Markets, Mar-Val Foods, and more.
Sprouts Farmers Market debuted Voyage's Peanut-Free Spread as part of its Forager Program this month. It will have an introductory price of $3.99 per 16 oz jar, and at other retailers starting at $4.99.
"Voyage Foods' products are the answer to rising consumer demand for foods that address changing environmental and health needs, while still performing on taste," said Chris Vogel, Category Manager of Sprouts. "We're excited to offer Voyage's Peanut-Free Spread to families living with food allergies and looking for more variety on the shelves."
The Peanut-Free spread is gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, and free of the top nine food allergens. It is also made with upcycled grape seed, resulting in less food waste.
