AKRON, OH – Hickory Harvest Foods announces the groundbreaking of its 17,000 square foot expansion to its corporate headquarters, 90 Logan Parkway.  The additional will include new warehouse and office space, which will allow more room for additional production and food manufacturing.

“The snack market is growing in a number of ways from different flavor profiles, alternative packaging, and retailers adding larger product sets in their stores. Over the past 8 years the category has grown annually 5-8%; and we see no signs of that slowing down as consumers understand the health benefits of nuts and retailers realize increased margins from carrying a private brand or the Hickory Harvest and IM Good Snacks brands,” said Joe Swiatkowski, president of Hickory Harvest.  “Because we are one of the few nut roasters in the country that packages and processes as extensively as we do, we are positioning our business to capture more market share.”
