Nuts.com acquires Kopper’s Chocolate
Online nuts, dried fruit and snacks retailer Nuts.com has revealed the acquisition of gourmet chocolate company, Kopper’s Chocolate, alongside the chocolatier’s 80th anniversary.
The multimillion-dollar deal officially closed in 2016 and Kopper’s has since moved from its former warehouse in Greenwich Village, New York, to Nuts.com’s headquarters in Cranford, New Jersey. All Kopper’s employees and production team members have been retained throughout the transition.
Jeffrey Braverman, CEO of Nuts.com, says, “It is very important to us to work closely with Kopper’s employees to preserve, and elevate the Kopper’s brand, focusing on their rich legacy.
“Our hope is to reignite the creativity in the brand, which ultimately made it what it is today and propel Kopper’s Chocolate into the future by focusing on building innovation and a closer connection to consumers.”
In celebration of the company’s 80th anniversary, Kopper’s has also announced a rebrand, including the preview of three new products – Cherry Chocolate Cashews, Strawberry Shortcake Almonds and All Natural Dark Chocolate Covered Gummy Bears at the 2017 Summer Fancy Food Show this week.
