Blue Horizon Buys Stake in Hail Merry

In February, blue horizon added the plant-based snack food company Hail Merry to its investment portfolio. With this investment, blue horizon will help Hail Merry expand its product range in both variety and scope for new customers, making their products more accessible to everyone. As a result, more consumers will have delicious, plant-based snack options.

Hail Merry makes sweet snacks that are easy to take with you on the go and perfect for any time of day. And with three flavors of cups, four flavors of bites, and six flavors of tarts, you’ll likely find one that suits your taste buds. While these are indulgent snacks meant to satisfy your sweet tooth, these products are non-GMO, gluten-free, and certified vegan. With all this good stuff, Hail Merry sacks beat out Oreos by a mile.

The secret to Hail Merry’s melt-in-the-mouth consistency is right there in the ingredients list: coconut. When combined with nuts and nut flours, the result is a deliciously delectable treat that’s just sweet enough and perfectly mimics the experience of desserts that use milk chocolate and butter. The big difference, however, is the impact on the planet and people’s diets.

Andy Malloy, CEO of Hail Merry, says: “Hail Merry is beyond thrilled to be included in blue horizon’s portfolio of innovative plant-based brands. With their investment, we’re able to bring mind-blowing indulgence from clean & fresh plant-based ingredients to even more consumers. HAIL YES!”

Roger Lienhard, founder and CEO of blue horizon, says: “Having followed Hail Merry’s progress for a while now, we’re happy to contribute to their company. We hope to see their product in more locations all over the country, and bring plant-based goodness to the masses.”
