Sonoma Creamery, Laiki Form Strategic Partnership
Sonoma Creamery, makers of Cheese Crisps and Mr. Cheese O’s and Crunchy Real Cheese Snacks, announced a new strategic partnership with Laiki, makers of better-for-you crackers.
“We are very pleased to be in partnership with Laiki,” said John Crean, president & CEO of Sonoma Creamery. “Laiki has an extremely innovative and tasty line of whole grain rice crackers. When I first met their founder and CEO Pradeep Akkunoor a year ago, I was blown away by his understanding of the process of innovation and the fantastic product line he had brought to market in a short period of time.”
The crackers feature an unique crunch and are healthy with a very short ingredient deck--whole grain rice, sustainably sourced palm fruit oil and sea salt. Laiki products fit many of the current dietary trends, such as gluten-free, Kosher, FODMAP friendly, allergen-free and Vegan Certified.
The new alliance will expand Laiki’s distribution to introduce its items to a wider audience. The partnership will also make it easier for Laiki to expand its product line.
“Sonoma Creamery brings a wealth of deep experience in the food industry that is extremely valuable for Laiki," said Pradeep Akkunoor. “John and the incredible Sonoma Creamery team give us guidance that helps us make the right decisions focused on our customers. With this partnership, we are laying a strong foundation that will enable Laiki to serve our customers at scale, with high quality products and without compromising on our values of delivering delicious products with simple and clean ingredients.”
