Beech-Nut And Motts Co-Brand Baby Food
Amsterdam, N.Y.– based Beech-Nut,a subsidiary of Hero AG of Lenzburg, Switzerland, introduces a line of great-tasting and nutritious baby foods featuring Beech-Nut purees co-branded with Mott’s applesauce. The seven SKU line (divided into stages) is made with natural ingredients and has a taste that babies will love and moms can trust. Mott’s, a brand of Dr Pepper Snapple Group, is the nation's leading producer of branded applesauce and apple juice.
“Since 1842, Mott's has proudly created delicious and healthy products for adults and children,” says Allison Methvin, director of marketing for Mott’s. “We are thrilled to partner with Beech-Nut to offer moms another convenient and nutritious option for their families.”
Beech-Nut is the No.2 ranked baby food brand in the U.S. and introduced the first vacuum-sealed glass jar of baby food in 1931. Eighty years later, Beech-Nut purees are still made with natural ingredients, contain no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, and are exclusively produced in traditional glass jars to naturally lock in essential nutrients and good taste.
