We believe this deal with Suffield represents a tremendous opportunity, and I look forward to working with the Suffield team to help make Fiber One ice cream available to retailers and consumers across the country," says Sean Folkson, chief executive officer of NightFood.
"With Fiber One ice cream, we're delivering a unique set of benefits to the consumer and the retailer,” says Frank Everett, chief executive officer of Suffield. “This transaction will allow us access to the capital we need to manufacture, distribute and support Fiber One ice cream at retail."
