MINONG, Wis.– Jack Link's Protein Snacks has revealed three new portable products that will launch in 2019. The company said it is looking to extend its presence outside the meat-snack landscape by developing products that bring new consumers to the category and create new protein snacking occasions.
"We are on a mission to make protein snacking accessible to everyone," said T.D. Dixon, chief marketing officer for Jack Link's Protein Snacks. "Consumers continue to seek more protein in their diet, so we've focused our innovation efforts, whether that be form, packaging or flavors, to provide consumers new opportunities to engage in the category. These efforts are creating incredible growth for our customers and the entire category."
