About Peeled Snacks

Until now something was missing in the snack market. You could get salty chips, over processed fruit, or energy bars with mysterious ingredients, but you couldn't get something that made you feel good about snacking. The solution? Tasty and nourishing snacks that became Peeled Snacks. The vision behind Peeled Snacks was to make healthy snacking as close to natural as possible and a satisfying part of life.

Peeled Snacks makes hip, convenient, and naturally nutritious snacks for people on-the-go. Capturing some of the fastest growing trends, Peeled Snacks are made with ingredients you recognize: organic, gently-dried fruit with no added sugar. The snacks provide a portion-controlled source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They have no artificial flavors or colors and are gluten, wheat, cholesterol and dairy free. Peeled Snacks sources from the U.S. whenever possible, and as part of its commitment to sustainability, has partnered with the American Farmland Trust to promote and save American farmland. In sourcing both domestically and internationally, Peeled Snacks proactively builds relationships with farms and suppliers to advance fair labor and sustainability practices. Peeled Snacks is a certified Minority & Woman Owned business.

We became a B Corp to be part of the movement to redefine the role of business in our economy. With most companies promoting their social or environmental commitments, it is important to have a certification that can verify that we do what we say. The B Corp community inspires us to look for new ways to better care for our stakeholders and the environment.
