Funky Monkey(TM) Snacks Finds Earth-Friendly Policies Take Dedication - But They Pay Off
Date:4/21/2009

Cashew Shell-Powered Manufacturing, Organically Produced Fruit Reflect Company's Commitment; Loyal Customers Appreciate Products They Can Feel Good About

FISHERS, Ind., April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- When people think of snacks, the first word that comes to mind isn't usually "responsible". But Funky Monkey(TM) Snacks is proving that snacking can be not only nutritious and fun, but also respectful to the environment.

Since the debut of its all-natural, freeze-dried snacks nearly two years ago, Indiana-based Funky Monkey Snacks has worked to build a positive reputation with consumers and retailers alike through its pursuit of policies that honor the earth's natural resources. Those policies -- and the company's tasty snacks -- have helped land distribution in leading national grocery and specialty chains across the country, and won multitudes of loyal customers in the process.

"There's no question people respond to companies that take a proactive stance to finding positive solutions," said Matt Herzog, president of Funky Monkey Snacks. "Our goal has always been to market all-natural, nutritious and delicious snacks that are fun for kids and adults alike. But we are also mindful of how we produce our snacks and we try to be respectful to the environment wherever we can."

Funky Monkey Snacks uses an exclusive freeze-drying process to turn 100% real fruit into crispy, bite-sized pieces that are nutritionally equivalent to their fresh fruit counterparts. The company combines bananas, pineapples, apples, papaya, raisins, and acai to create four different varieties that are ideal go-anywhere snack alternatives.

Funky Monkey Snacks' production and manufacturing operation is based in Brazil and uses all local fruits. The innovative freeze-drying equipment is powered by cashew shells. Once the shells are burned, the residue is reused -- a totally renewable energy system. Additionally, Funky Monkey's process does not use any chemical refrigerants like fluorocarbons or liquid nitrogen.

Funky Monkey Snacks' commitment extends to the products themselves. Three of the four flavors are certified 100% organic according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Organic Program; to attain this designation, all of a product's ingredients must be produced, harvested, processed and handled using all-natural (non-synthetic) methods and substances.

"Organic operations like ours favor natural soil treatments and prohibit the use of practices such as ionizing radiation and genetically engineered crops," Herzog commented. ="Even our fruit waste, such as peels and cores, are reused as either all-natural fertilizer or as animal feed."

At roughly 110 calories per package, Funky Monkey Snacks contain no added sugar, preservatives, colors or flavors. They are also gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free and certified Kosher-Parve.

"Our business demonstrates that it's possible to make a healthy difference in people's lives and improve the environment, all at the same time," Herzog stated. "Our commitment to healthy eating and responsible production has been good for us and for our customers."
