Australian snack brand New World Foods has partnered with global company Snack Brands Australia to expand its footprint.

New World Foods started out making Local Legends Jerky and has expanded into a diverse food manufacturer.

Its brands are currently distributed throughout Australia, Asia and the UK, and its revenues have more than tripled in recent years, according to its MD Don Nisbet.

Pairing with Snack Brands Australia will ensure the company's snack foods exposure continues to grow, along with its portfolio of products, he said.

“Our products are the latest in ready-to-eat snack foods and it’s our mission to share them far and wide.

“We wholeheartedly believe in the quality of our products and want as many people as possible in our increasingly health conscious world to have access to them,” Nisbet said.
