Carman’s announces new American distribution deal

Posted by Daniel Palmer on 4th September 2009

Australian muesli maker Carman’s Fine Foods has secured US distribution for three of its muesli bar lines.

The company, which started selling its muesli in the US last year, has received its first orders from US distributor Kehe and has deals in place with UNFI and Tree of Life.

Carman’s founder and MD Carolyn Cresswell announced the company’s first order with Kehe – which she labelled “the bees knees of American distributors” – on Twitter earlier this week.

Carman’s export manager Ellie Redman told just-food that the three SKUs – Carman’s Classic, Original and Apricot Muesli Bars – would be distributed to mass grocery outlets nationwide.
