BOULDER, CO (March 4, 2013) – Olomomo Nut Co., a leading, Boulder, CO-based producer of all-natural, gluten-free, artisan-roasted nuts, announces the launch of eye-catching, fully recyclable, point-of-purchase display cases designed to appeal to consumers and retailers alike. Olomomo Nuts are now available in both convenient single-serving-size packets (1.5 oz.) and larger 4-oz. bags (four servings). The new product sizes are designed to work perfectly in natural grocery stores, coffee shops, convenience stores and other retail locations.

“Part of the motivation behind the new packaging and displays was to create an attractive delivery system that was colorful and visually appealing, with easy identification of flavors, and attributes legibly printed on each bag. Our retail grocery customers spoke and we listened,” said Olomomo CEO Mark Owens.

All Olomomo Nut products are kettle-roasted using centuries-old techniques, and lightly seasoned with individual spices to prevent masking the nut’s inherent flavor. According to founder Justin Perkins, “I’m a weekend-warrior athlete who depends on sustained, even energy. I wanted a food that wasn’t overly sweet or salty; I don’t have time for sugar crashes and ingredients that are dehydrating. Therefore, all of our products adhere to that guiding principle of minimal sugar, low-salt, but tons of flavor.”

Originally inspired by an artist from Oaxaca, Mexico, who used native products to produce intricate art, the folks at Olomomo use simple but distinctive, fair-trade spice combinations to create mind-blowing roasted almond flavors including Cherry Vanilla Dream, Chai Bliss, Mango Chipotle Zinger, and Righteous Cinnamon Cayenne, available in 1.5-oz. and 4-oz. sizes - and Cosmic Maple Masala Pecans, available in 10-oz. bags. The company plans to roll out new flavors later in the year.

Current flavor offerings have the following attributes: all natural and organic ingredients, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, no trans fat, no added oils, no cholesterol, no preservatives, no artificial colors, no artificial sweeteners and no GMO ingredients.

Olomomo Nut Company is a cause-oriented brand with a mission to do and inspire more good in the world while creating a healthy snack alternative. Recent donations have included Kay Angel Orphanage in Haiti, The Center for Resource Conservation, Net Impact, and Cultiva, an organization dedicated to teaching young people about organic gardening.
