Rhythm® Superfoods CEO Scott Jensen said he was thrilled with this new investment, saying that he looks forward to what this strategic partnership will bring in the near future.
“With the support and resources of General Mills behind us we have confidence that we will continue to be the leader in developing innovative plant-based superfood snacks for our growing consumer base,” he said.
As more consumers seek nutritious snacks, Rhythm® Superfoods hopes that this investment will bring them one step further in the healthy food movement.
