About Crispy Green
Crispy Green Inc. (http://www.crispygreen.com) is the maker of Crispy Green Crispy Fruit freeze-dried fruit snacks and the new line of FruitziO freeze-dried fruit snacks. The company was founded in August 2004 with a vision to be the leading provider of high quality, natural food products desired by everyone who wants to live a healthy and better life.
The Crispy Fruit and FruitziO line of snacks are made of only the finest fruits available. A sophisticated freeze-drying process removes the water from fresh, sweet fruit, leaving behind the fruit’s true essence in a light and crispy texture that’s perfect for snacking. Crispy Green’s line of Crispy Fruit and FruitziO are a delicious, convenient way to add more fruit to your daily diet.
In 2005, Crispy Green introduced its line of Crispy Fruit in the United States. Since then, Crispy Green has been adding one new product each year to its Crispy Fruit product line to meet its rapidly growing distribution footprint. In 2009, Crispy Green launched Strawberry FruitziO, its first product in its new line of FruitziO freeze-dried fruit snacks.
