"We are excited about adding the Plocky's brand and products to our growing snack food lineup," said Kevin Holden, president of Hola Nola Foods. "Plocky's award winning Hummus Chips and Tortilla Chips, geographic footprint and customer relationships are a great fit and we look forward to continuing to expand this unique healthy snack brand."
"After 30 years building the Plocky's snack brand, I began looking for a company that could not only continue the brand but expand it beyond the Midwest. I feel Hola Nola Foods is the ideal organization to fulfill that goal," stated Paul Cipolla, president of NatureStar Foods based in Hinsdale, IL.
Hola Nola Foods will maintain NatureStar Foods' Chicagoland area distribution facility to supply current and future customers throughout the Midwest. Paul Cipolla will act as a consultant to Hola Nola Foods and maintain long term customer relationships.
