At the grocery store, we often think items are healthy because the packaging says “good source of protein” or “excellent source of fiber” – when in reality, those products could be empty calories or full of sugar. Consumers deserve clearer labels to help them make informed decisions. That’s why KIND in partnership with a group of public health experts, is petitioning the FDA to bring more transparency to food labels by updating its nutrient content claim regulations.

Congratulations, Jaclyn!

Published under KIND, KIND Snacks Mar 04, 2019

This week we are celebrating Jaclyn Fishkow’s 10 year anniversary with KIND. One of my greatest pleasures at KIND has been seeing team members grow and blossom in so many ways. Jaclyn joined us as an assistant in March 2009 when KIND was just 5 years old. We all quickly recognized that she was extraordinarily smart and hard-working. She has held a variety of roles on our Supply Chain & Operations team since then, and 10 years later, as our Senior Manager of Operations Analysis, she continues to grow and exceed all expectations. Congratulations, Jaclyn! To many more!

Welcome to our new KIND team members!

Published under KIND Snacks Feb 21, 2019
Every quarter, I sit down with KIND Snacks new hires to officially welcome them to the team. We get to know one another and discuss KIND’s history, values, and vision. Yesterday we focused on our value of transparency, which most of you probably associate with us because of our clear wrappers. Beyond that, it is a value that is central to how we operate. We prize open and frank communication across the board, which only benefits the team and business. For example if a team member feels, for personal or professional reasons, that he or she needs to move on, we hope to have an early and open discussion to explore options. If leaving is the final choice, we work together on a changeover plan to ensure that the team member interviews, hires, and trains his or her replacement, and we provide support to that team member as they embark on their next chapter. It’s a win-win!

I love seeing the next generation of our growing KIND family, like this adorable munchkin! She belongs to our IT Project Manager, Millie Biswas. Clearly, she is developing excellent taste from a young age.

KIND played a part in a love story!

Published under KIND Snacks, Life Dec 27, 2016

Boston Globe:  Finding Love in the Unlikeliest of Places

By Eric Moskowitz

WRENTHAM — Even by the standards of jury-assembly rooms, the basement space at Wrentham District Court is grim, calling to mind a driver’s ed classroom or maybe an interrogation den, with exposed pipes, stained carpeting, and bleak lighting.

Suffice it to say, it was not where Melissa Ananias or Peter Butler expected to find love — or, for that matter, where anyone has expected to find it. Ever.

On that Tuesday morning, two years ago in October, Melissa arrived uncharacteristically early. Pete, uncharacteristically, cut it close.

She was 45 and had been divorced eight years, a single mother from Needham with two daughters in elementary school. Match.com, JDate, blind dates, she had tried them all, dismissing most guys quickly, not one of them ever reaching the point of meeting her girls.

Pete was 44 and also had two kids. Divorced officially for 21 days, he was was trying out Match.com; only later would he realize he had seen Melissa already, quickly clicking past her because she had two cats. He was allergic.

But now she stood out to him amid the groggy faces as he ducked through the low doorway. She noticed him, too — tall and blue-eyed, in a crisp dress shirt and fleece — but tried not to stare, turning back to her book. Why not, he thought, as he walked past rows of empty seats and picked the one beside her.

By now we hope you know that there’s nothing more important to us than the relationship we share with you—our fans. You’ve been the fuel on this now 12-year journey to make healthy andtasty snacking a way of life.

You’ve also stood by us when we’ve faced challenges. One of these challenges came last year when KIND received a warning letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Most notably, the letter asked us to remove healthy from the back wrapper of four KIND bars, stating that our use of the term was in violation of a regulation (more info here). Fast forward 13 months. The FDA has now affirmed KIND can use healthy on our wrappers again—just as we had it before. While we’re pleased the FDA has reversed its stance, it doesn’t change what is and always has been our focus – to create delicious snacks made with wholesome ingredients.

So proud to be a Mexican-American entrepreneur, and I never take that for granted.
