With a recent packaging refresh—inspired by our nation’s parks and an adventurous, traveler’s mindset—Field Trip is thrilled to be returning the community’s meat snack options to the traditions of natural ingredients.
BROOKLYN, NY (November 15, 2016) Crafted for summer road trips, winters on the ski slopes, the daily routine and those special steps in between, Field Trip, an all natural jerky company, launches into the meat stick market with five debut flavors and a brand new website built to inspire and fuel your journey.
Made with grass-fed beef, vegetarian-fed pork and free range turkey, Field Trip’s new meat sticks are free of corn-syrup, nitrate, antibiotic, hormone, soy, dairy and gluten, plus higher in protein and lower in fat and sodium than traditional meat sticks.
Each 1oz original beef stick contains 90 calories, 8g protein and 220mg sodium, whereas the equivalent weight (28g) of Slim Jim Original (sold in 32g sticks, with figures adjusted accordingly) has 140 calories, 6.1g of protein and 481mg sodium. [Food Navigator USA]
“We spent a lot of time researching the category—talking to buyers and consumers and working hard to tick all the boxes when it comes to responsibly sourced meat and good nutrition, while keeping an approachable price point,” says Field Trip co-founder Scott Fiesinger. “The meat stick market is dominated primarily by just a few extremely large mainstream companies.
In our opinion, there is an enormous opportunity for improvement by offering both responsibly sourced and better tasting options.”
The new meat sticks come in Original Sea Salt (beef), Maple BBQ (pork), Cracked Pepper (turkey), Spicy Jalapeno (beef/pork) and Pepperoni (beef/pork) with an MSRP of $1.49-$1.99/stick. Available at fieldtripjerky.com and launching soon in retailers accross the country.
With a recent packaging refresh—inspired by our nation’s parks and an adventurous, traveler’s mindset—Field Trip is thrilled to be returning the community’s meat snack options to the traditions of dried and seasoned, natural ingredients and no artificial preservatives and sodium nitrates.
“It wasn’t all that long ago that meat snacks were thought of as junk food—a convenience store staple where the primary ingredients were ten-syllable words that look like they were taken from the label of an industrial solvent,” says Field Trip co-founder Tom Donigan. “We consider those days over.
And we’re proud to provide active, on-the-go adventurers with delicious, all natural options to enjoy from Acadia National Park to Olympic!”
