The addition of these stores means tremendous company growth, and reflects high consumer demand for Kate’s bars nationwide. To facilitate this rapid growth, the company has partnered with a vertically integrated manufacturer located in Bedford, PA.

Whole Foods is an integral part of Kate’s strategy, to reinvent and disrupt the energy bar category. Kate’s expansion in additional Whole Foods Markets highlights consumer demand for organics, the fastest growing sector of the U.S. food industry. Kate’s bars are a perfect fit for Whole Foods as a clean-label, USDA organic product, validating the company’s leadership within the organic snacking segment.

It’s so natural to feel aligned with a company who shares our same values: high quality foods and relationships that nurture each other’s growth.”
