FRAMINGHAM, Mass., March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Newly formed Elevation Brands, LLC is determined to make the world a better, healthier place by bringing mission-driven foods to the table. The company will source, manufacture and market products that help solve common environmental, sustainability and health issues.
Elevation Brands, LLC's two charter brands are already pioneers in their respective categories. Ian's Natural Foods produces 30 all-natural, allergy-friendly versions of favorite foods including chicken nuggets and French bread pizza. These give children and adults whose diets are severely restricted by food allergies and Celiac disease the ability to enjoy the same foods as their friends and families.
Blue Horizon Wild uses only sustainably sourced, wild caught fish and shellfish in its delicious value-added frozen seafood entrees, sides and snacks. The company's award-winning Alaskan Salmon Burger is just one example of how Blue Horizon Wild gives consumers the products they want while helping to protect the world's oceans.
The formation of Elevation Brands, LLC was led by Renewal2, a social investment fund supporting companies that create environmental and social impact. Paul Richardson, CEO of Renewal2, states, "Elevation Brands signifies the enormous financial, social and environmental potential of foods that give individual consumers the power to influence the health and well-being of their families and the world we share."
While Elevation Brands, LLC will provide all operations, manufacturing, sales and marketing activities, both Ian's and Blue Horizon Wild will continue to be marketed as distinct consumer brands. Chuck Marble, current General Manager of Ian's Natural Foods, will become CEO of Elevation Brands, LLC. "Consumers are increasingly aware that the key to solving a number of health and environmental challenges facing the world today lies in what we choose to eat. We're making history as pioneers of food that matters."
