Mintel reports that “56 percent of U.S. consumers who were limiting their sugar intake were doing so because of future health concerns. Now, with the increased health concerns surrounding Covid-19, 30 percent of U.S. internet users say that ‘low sugar’ has become more important to them, and 55 percent of U.S. adults want to limit sugar in their diet.”
AMG has begun setting up meetings with retail buyers and will begin presenting the Yumy Candy products for listings. The company is in process of listing the Yumy products with designated product distributors, to maximize the product availability to retail partners across the U.S.
