BY Michael Johnsen

CLEVELAND Ganeden Biotech on Tuesday announced the launch of a new partnership with Tropical Nut & Fruit, a manufacturer of nuts, snacks, high-quality chocolate and yogurt products, around a series of four functional confection mixes that will incorporate the probiotic GanedenBC30.

The first product from this partnership will be Tropical’s new yogurt-covered raisins. 

The yogurt-covered raisins are currently only available for purchase in bulk, but samples will be available at Ganeden Biotech’s booth during this year’s IFT Annual Meeting and Food Expo, Ganeden stated.

“The yogurt raisins are the first product of this partnership, but we look forward to developing similar confections and continuing to expand on this partnership in the near future, stated Andrew Lefkowitz, Ganeden Biotech president and CEO.
