Pair of nut bars land in stores

Range extended to entice health conscious consumers

MERIDIAN Foods’ nut bar range has been extended with the launch of two new variants.

The two new flavours, Peanut & Pumpkin and Peanut & Coconut, bring Meridian’s health focused nut bar range to eight. The full Meridian Foods range also includes Peanut, Almons, Cashew, Peanut & Banana, Peanut & Berry and Peanut & Cocoa nut bars.

Priced at £1.19, the 40g bars are made with Meridian roasted peanuts and are said to contain between six and eight grams of protein per bar.
The nut bars are also dairy, soya, gluten and palm oil free and are suitable for vegans.

Darren Robinson, head of sales at Meridian Foods, said customer appetite for healthier products “remains one of the strongest motives” when making food choices.

“Our products are enjoyed for their health and wellbeing attributes and we believe it’s the protein-packed, natural goodness found in our bars that make them a bit for refuelling after exercise and eating on the go,” said Robinson.
