Ian’s, maker of delicious, convenient, and trustworthy allergy-friendly foods, announced key distribution advances across traditional grocery, mass merchandiser, naturals and online channels. In 2017, the brand secured more than 13,000 new points of distribution, significantly increasing its national presence. Among these advances are new partnerships with Walmart and Amazon, as well as new and expanded distribution with key conventional grocery retailers, including Publix, Safeway/Albertsons, Wegmans, ShopRite, Hannaford Brothers and Shaw’s. Ian’s also continues to enjoy national distribution with Whole Foods Market and Target, along with an enhanced presence in naturals grocery retailer Sprouts Farmers Market.

“When we say we’re committed to offering more consumers across the country safe and trusted allergy-friendly foods, we mean it; and it all starts at the store level to ensure these options are easy to find and widely available,” says Michele Abo, chief executive officer of Ian’s. “Families managing food allergies rely on Ian’s to provide them with meal solutions, and we are answering that call with increased distribution and expansion. We are thankful for our loyal retail partners and look forward to continuing our aggressive growth in 2018.” 

Classic Ian’s family favorites free of wheat, gluten, eggs, milk, casein, peanuts and tree nuts will be at the forefront of the pioneer’s expansion, including frozen chicken nuggets, organic chicken nuggets, fish sticks, alphatots, onion rings and Ian’s signature original and Italian style gluten free panko breadcrumbs. Ian’s frozen items are also free of soy.

Ian’s products are available online and at retailers nationwide.
