A Certified B Corporation, cereal and snack maker Emmy’s Organics receives Whole Foods Local Producer Loan and introduces a new raspberry flavor to its line of tasty vegan, gluten-free and non-GMO macaroons. 

Ithaca, NY (January 11, 2016) — Mission-driven manufacturer of vegan, gluten-free and non-GMO power snacks and cereals, Emmy’s Organics announces the launch of its new Raspberry Macaroon, the latest addition to its growing product lineup.

As a recent recipient of Whole Foods’ Local Producer Loan, a program that has provided over $25 million in low-interest loans to independent farmers and food artisans, Emmy’s Organics, based in Ithaca, NY, has expanded its product line and is introducing a new raspberry-flavored macaroon. Made with certified organic raspberry, coconut and vanilla, the new addition will be available in the Whole Foods Market Northeast region early this year, followed by a national roll out in the spring. The new macaroon is also available online

“Our customers have responded well to our macaroon line and the new Raspberry Macaroons are a welcome addition by delivering a burst of raspberry tartness highlighted by a subtly sweet, creamy coconut finish,” says Emmy’s Co-founder and owner Samantha Abrams. “We are thankful for the Whole Foods New York Local Loan Program for giving us the opportunity to expand our line,” she adds.

Available in both 2-oz. bags and 6-oz. gusseted pouches, the new flavor will join current varieties: Chai Spice, Lemon Ginger, Chocolate Chip, Mint Chip, and Dark Cacao.
