The huge growth that American Farmer has been seeing is no coincidence: Consumers are increasingly moving away from salty and sugary snacks and opting for healthier products such as baked snacks and trail mixes—which is precisely the type of product that American Farmer makes.
An ultra-premium popcorn, American Farmer Popcorn uses only the highest-quality corn harvested from America's heartland. They pop the corn in small batches to create a unique combination of sweet and savory flavors that harkens back to a simpler time. The brand offers a wide array of flavors, including Sweet & Salty, and Slim & Light Kettle Corn; Old School Movie Theater, Slim Sea Salt, Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper, Whitehouse Cheddar, Crunchy Caramel & Salted Caramel Popcorn; as well as classic holiday tins, and gourmet butterfly popcorn kernels—for gourmands who'd rather pop their popcorn themselves.
Bickel's Potato Chip Company was started in 1954 by Mr. Luther Bickel in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. It was a regional family run business offering a unique "seared" potato chip in an array of interesting flavors. Then, in 1998, Bickel's was purchased by Hanover Foods Corporation—the US's largest privately-owned manufacturer of frozen, canned, fresh, and freeze-dried food products.
Meyer Futersak, Founder & CEO of American Farmer Popcorn, is excited about this announcement. "We have long been admirers of Bickel's products and culture, and are thrilled to have been selected as part of their distribution assortment. I believe this will open a myriad of new opportunities for American Farmer, while we provide Bickel's with a delicious, healthy new snack alternative to their millions of lifelong customers."
Brynt Little, Bickel's Director of Sales is similarly enthusiastic about the deal, proclaiming, "We are incredibly excited to select American Farmer Popcorn for distribution across all our channels. They have a dynamic brand that is both bold, and promises to diversity our product mix."
