It reflects their confidence in Utah's growing business environment. This development is set to create over 190 jobs, significantly contributing to the local economy.

Since joining the Mars family in 2020, Nature's Bakery has been focusing on scaling up their "better-for-you" snacking options. Juan Martin, Health & Wellness President at Mars, highlights this investment as a testament to their dedication to growing their brands responsibly.

Slated to begin operations in July 2025, the Salt Lake City facility is poised to be a game-changer in the snack industry. It's not just a boost for Nature's Bakery but a signal of Mars Incorporated's broader vision for a sustainable, health-focused future.

Nature's Bakery continues to embody the ethos of providing simple, wholesome snacks as fuel for active lives. With this expansion, they're set to make an even more significant impact on the snack market, offering nutritious options for families nationwide.
