Prosperity Organic Foods, Boise, Idaho, expanded its MELT brand to include organic vegan butter made with virgin coconut oil and other dairy-free, nut-free and soy-free organic ingredients.
All MELT organic spreads are made from a "perfect blend" of beneficial plant and fruit-based oils, including certified Fair for Life Fair Trade virgin coconut and certified Fair Trade USA and Rainforest Alliance palm fruit.
"MELT was born from an authentic need for a healthier alternative to butter," says Meg Carlson, president and CEO. "Tired of butter substitutes that didn't taste good or perform well, we created an option that is truly good for you because it is rich in medium chain fatty acids, the 'good fats,' and boasts the highest omega-3 content in the category. Now, socially and environmentally conscious consumers can make a difference with each purchase of MELT."
MELT products are available in stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $4.99.
