Freed Foods, Inc. dba NurturMe, a maker of organic quinoa-based baby food, said it is introducing organic meals and snacks under the Tummy Friendly brand designed to support overall digestive health in babies and toddlers.
The Austin, Tex.-based company’s portfolio, which launched in 2014, includes quinoa infant cereals, NurturMeals Baby Food, Quinoa Squares and Yum-a-Roo’s toddler snacks. All products are certified-organic, naturally gluten-free, non-GMO and kosher, without any added preservatives or sugars.
Freed Foods said it reached 127 percent year-over-year growth in the second quarter, and expects to more than double its revenue by the end of the year.
The company said it will use the investment to expand the rollout of its new, 11-SKU "free from" organic baby and toddler foods with probiotics line, including the category’s first ancient grain cookies with probiotics for kids.
Meanwhile, the new, gluten-free Tummy Friendly brand of baby foods and toddler snacks – which are free from common allergens that can upset sensitive stomachs in babies and toddlers including gluten, dairy, soy and egg – are rolling out in select Target stores nationwide this month and Kroger stores this fall.
