Company Summary

SALADSHOTS, maker of innovative premium natural products, is on a mission to TRANSFORM HEALTHY EATING!

We reinvent the category with unique flavors, stand-out packaging, portion control, and FUN marketing concepts - much in the same way that Ben & Jerry’s changed ice cream and Chobani added “Greek” to yogurt.

Our bars and dressings are currently in 400+ major grocery stores nationwide. We anticipate being in over 1,000+ stores by Q2 2017.
