The expansion into the fresh food market continues to build on Batch & Bodega’s goal of delivering high-quality exceptional food gifts in the promotional industry. HPG’s Chief Development Officer (and founder of Batch & Bodega), Jason Lucash said, “The core of Batch & Bodega will always be about delivering memorable food experiences. We started with our curated kits last summer and saw an amazing immediate response from customers who loved the ability to offer such memorable gifts to their clients. After our successful launch, we immediately asked ourselves, ‘How can we further connect customers with more best-in-class food makers? How do we push beyond shelf-stable snacks in curated kits and offer even more options to market? Adding the ability to offer fresh food experiences, shipped straight from the maker within hours of being made, is just the latest extension of Batch & Bodega.”

The Batch & Bodega team continues to build on it’s platform of supporting independent food makers across the country, many who have been hit hard by the impact of the pandemic. Said Lucash, “We’re excited to add even more small-batch makers to our profile with the expansion of fresh food; there has been nothing more satisfying than helping makers expand into the corporate gift business and seeing them thrive from their partnership with Batch & Bodega.”

“We’re so thrilled to bring Killer Brownie® to a new market through our partnership with HPG! Their dedication to choosing high-quality brands and products makes it an honor to work with them. We can’t wait for new customers to experience our ooey-gooey gourmet brownies!”, said Killer Brownie® President and CCO Chimene Mayne Ross.

Batch & Bodega’s kits (or “batches” as they are affectionately known) will remain the core of the business while the fresh offerings expand on the existing platform of exceptional food experiences. The initial launch of fresh foods will be followed by additional launches, adding new makers and fresh food offerings to the Batch & Bodega portfolio throughout the summer. Batch & Bodega will continue to release new maker partnerships throughout the summer to arm customers with a full assortment of giftable treats for the 2021 Holiday Season.
