| Press Release

Nutter advised RIND Snacks, a sustainable snack brand, in connection with its acquisition of Small Batch Organics, a Vermont-based manufacturer of award-winning granola product. The transaction brings strategic manufacturing and fulfillment in-house, enhancing R&D, operational efficiency, and environmental impact. The Nutter team was led by Will Bernat and included Elizabeth Myers, Jeremy Halpern, Francesca Oliveira, and Tracy Vitols.

The acquisition marks a major milestone in RIND’s evolution from a leading dried fruit brand into a vertically integrated healthy snack platform. Small Batch is a natural extension of RIND’s mission to bring wholesome and sustainable foods–that maximize nutrition and minimize waste–to more customers. The company’s product innovation and manufacturing expertise, combined with RIND’s strength in sales, distribution, and brand affinity, creates a dynamic snacking business that spans approximately 12,000 retail stores and is slated to generate over $25 million in retail sales by year’s end.

At a time when many consumer packaged brands have scaled back in reaction to shifting market dynamics, RIND is making bold moves to proactively strengthen its business by taking ownership of manufacturing and fulfillment while significantly expanding its product range and R&D capabilities to ensure long-term success. The acquisition, the first for the six-year-old brand, will drive significant margin growth and operating efficiencies through vertical integration. Directly managing more of its supply chain will also meaningfully reduce environmental impact – a core focus for the brand since its founding in 2018. Read more about the transaction.
