J.S.B. Industries (Muffin Town) has acquired SunWise Foods, LLC, a privately owned Perham, Minnesota based manufacturer of crustless sandwiches made with SunButter (sunflower seed spread), on whole wheat bread, with grape jelly.
This peanut-free sandwich alternative is distributed to schools, food service providers and retailers across the United States. SunWise gives families an excellent substitute for foods that include peanuts, tree nuts and other allergens, without sacrificing the peanut butter flavor of a sandwich that is the cornerstone of the American lunch for children. Each sandwich is individually wrapped to protect the nut-free integrity for consumers.
"SunWise sandwiches will be a perfect complement to our Muffin, Muffin Top, Snack’N Loaf, Bagel, Cornbread and Cookie Dough lines. SunWise sandwiches will be produced in our state-of-the-art peanut-free facility," remarks Jack Anderson, President of J.S.B. Industries. "The purchase of SunWise will enable all of our customers to receive wider access to this popular sandwich. It will also enable us to expand on our product lines to include a quality lunch entrée that meets the nutrition and dietary requirements in schools and on family tables across the United States.”
J.S.B. Industries, Inc., headquartered in Chelsea, Massachusetts, manufactures fresh frozen bakery products under the Muffin Town, Smart Choice, Aesops Bagels, and Madeline’s Gourmet Cookie brands. The SunWise line now joins this brand selection. Private label baked goods are available for quality-oriented food service distributors and retailers. The company operates two kosher, peanut-free baked goods manufacturing plants: one at its headquarters in Chelsea, Mass., and a new facility in Lawrence, Mass.
