This innovation proudly debuts at Natural Products Expo West at the Fresh Ideas Organic Marketplace on Wednesday, March 6th, and at the brand’s show booths, #1437 in Hall B and #N623 in the North Hall.

“It’s been 15 years since Justin’s first changed the way nut butter was done with our one-of-a-kind grind and, soon after, originated the squeeze pack.

Now that we’ve brought the idea to life with Nut Butter Covered Nuts, almonds and cashews are twice as good. We can’t wait for you to come by our booths and share with you.”

Justin’s Organic Nut Butter Covered Nuts are made with USDA certified organic ingredients and are Non-GMO Project Verified, gluten free, dairy free and Kosher. With plant-based offerings increasing in consumer demand (over 20% growth in 2018), Covered Nuts are ideal to reach for when looking for a delicious snack, with 2-3g of plant-based protein per serving,
