The Good Bean, a manufacturer of roasted chickpea snacks, has acquired Beanitos, maker of better-for-you bean-based chips and puffs. “From the beginning our mission has been to make bean and plant-based snacking accessible, delicious, and affordable for everyone, while supporting responsible agriculture,” said Sarah Wallace, founder and CEO of The Good Bean. “The Beanitos portfolio perfectly complements the whole-bean snacking focus that The Good Bean is known for, and combining these two brands structurally and operationally will enable us to streamline many processes throughout the supply chain to create efficiencies for our industry partners – and ultimately our consumers in the U.S. and Canada. We’re fortunate to have investment partners who believe in our vision and are eager to amplify growth for both brands.” For more information about The Good Bean, please visit www.thegoodbean.com.
