Nightfood Launches Into Pacific Northwest With Northwest Grocers, Including Red Apple and Thriftway Markets
Tarrytown, NY, Sept. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- Nightfood, Inc. (OTCQB: NGTF), the better-for-you snack company solving America’s nighttime snack problem, and the Official Ice Cream of the American Pregnancy Association, has begun rollout into Northwest Grocers member stores throughout Oregon and Washington State.
Established in 2004, Northwest Grocers (NWG) is the premier provider of services to independent grocers in the Pacific Northwest. Totaling 85 stores, NWG banners include Red Apple, Thriftway, Select Markets, IGA Market, and more.
“Nightfood is an exciting and emerging brand that delivers an interesting and unique consumer benefit,” commented Jason Adams, Manager of Merchandising for NWG. “We think that providing better sleep and relaxation packaged together with such a great tasting product is something that will really resonate with customers in our stores.”
Six flavors of Nightfood have been authorized for placement, including Cold Brew Decaf, Midnight Chocolate, Cherry Eclipse, Milk & Cookie Dough, After Dinner Mint Chip, and best-selling flavor Cookies n’ Dreams. The line will initially be available in approximately 25 stores immediately, including select Red Apple and Thriftway Markets, with many more member stores expected to add Nightfood to their stores before the holidays.
“We’re so happy that Jason and his team share our vision for helping consumers relax and enjoy better sleep through better nighttime snacking, and have awarded us our first supermarket distribution west of the Rockies,” remarked Nightfood COO Jenny Mitchell. “It’s a tricky year to predict timing, but we’re hoping to be available in all 85 NWG stores as soon as possible.”
“This is another great milestone for our team,” added Nightfood’s Sean Folkson. “We are currently working on securing more distribution and other major initiatives to advance the Nightfood brand as the leader in nighttime-specific snacking. We look forward to announcing additional developments in the coming weeks.”
About Nightfood Holdings:
Nightfood Holdings, Inc. (OTC: NGTF), owns Nightfood, Inc. and MJ Munchies, Inc.
Nightfood has expanded distribution for its ice cream into major divisions of the largest supermarket chains in the United States: Kroger (Harris Teeter), Albertsons Companies (Jewel-Osco and Shaw’s and Star Markets), and H-E-B (Central Market) as well as Lowe’s Foods, Rouses Markets, and other independent retailers.
Nightfood won the 2019 Product of the Year award in the ice cream category in a Kantar survey of over 40,000 consumers. Nightfood was also named Best New Ice Cream in the 2019 World Dairy Innovation Awards.
Nightfood has been endorsed as the Official Ice Cream of the American Pregnancy Association and is the recommended ice cream for pregnant women. There are approximately 3,000,000 pregnant women in the United States at any given time, and ice cream is the single most-widely reported pregnancy craving. With more calcium, magnesium, zinc, fiber, and protein, less sugar and a lower glycemic profile than regular ice cream, Nightfood has been identified as a better choice for expectant mothers.
Nightfood is not just for pregnant women. Over 80% of Americans snack regularly at night, resulting in an estimated 700M+ nighttime snack occasions weekly, and an annual spend on night snacks of over $50 billion dollars, the majority of it on options that are understood to be both unhealthy, and disruptive to sleep quality.
Nightfood was formulated by sleep and nutrition experts with ingredients that research suggests can support nighttime relaxation and better sleep quality. Scientific research indicates unhealthy nighttime cravings are driven by human biology. Willpower is also weakest at night, and stress is another contributing factor. A majority of night snackers report feeling both guilty and out-of-control when it comes to their nighttime snacking.
Because unhealthy night snacking is believed to be biologically driven, and not a trend or a fad, management believes the category of nighttime-specific nutrition, which Nightfood is pioneering, will be a billion-dollar category.
MJ Munchies, Inc. was formed in 2018 as a new, wholly owned subsidiary of Nightfood Holdings, Inc. to capitalize on legally compliant opportunities in the CBD and marijuana edibles and related spaces. The Company is seeking licensing opportunities to market such products under the brand name “Half-Baked”, for which they’ve successfully secured trademark rights.
