“We are excited to welcome Mike to the Justin’s team,” said Peter Burns, president and chief executive officer at Justin’s. “Mike’s expertise in innovation, operations and product development will be a welcome addition to our mission. We are confident that he will bring new opportunities to the Justin’s family of products.”

Justin’s makes naturally delicious, high-quality nut butters, nut butter snacks and organic peanut butter cups that deliver great taste, unique texture and convenient nutrition. Established in 2004 in the home kitchen of health enthusiast Justin Gold, Justin’s supports an on-the-go lifestyle and strives to make a difference everywhere, basing its values on four fundamental pillars: Nourish, Nurture, Inspire and Educate. The first brand to market nut butters in single-serve squeeze packs, Justin’s nut butters are finely crafted with a one-of-a-kind grinding process to create an exceptional texture and flavor experience. All seven varieties offer 4-8 grams of protein per serving and are great for snacking anytime of the day. In the confection category, Justin’s Dark, Milk and White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups are USDA-certified organic and are made with Rainforest Alliance Certified(TM) cocoa. And now, perfect for dipping, scooping and devouring, Justin’s Snack Packs are available in three delicious nut butter and pretzel combinations, as well as two peanut butter and banana chip combinations (the first of its kind).
