We’ve long read Tanka Bar updates on Facebook, so we’re delighted to see this AP story announcing that the snack bars and other products made by Native American Natural Foods in South Dakota will be available in 49 states. (Yo, West Virginia! Get with the program!) Here’s the AP story in its entirety, and we’ve attached a video on Tanka Bars as well:
KYLE, S.D. (AP) – A Native American-owned company from Pine Ridge Indian Reservation has signed agreements that will make its all-natural products available in 49 states.
Kyle-based Native American Natural Foods launched the buffalo-and-cranberry Tanka Bar in 2007 and expanded its line to include the Tanka Bites and Tanka Dogs, which are available at food service places.
The items are based on traditional Native foods.
The company said it has signed contracts with natural foods distributors UNFI and Tree of Life and food service distributor Sysco.
Chief executive Karlene Hunter believes it’s only a matter of time before the last state, West Virginia, is added.
