Malt-O-Meal® Introduces Sally’s(TM) Cereal

August 29, 2011

MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The Malt-O-Meal Company has added a new line to its growing portfolio of family friendly cereals with the introduction of Sally’s brand cereal–the first Malt-O-Meal brand available in Canada. Landing on Walmart® store shelves in early August, Sally’s is the perfect combination of great-tasting ingredients, environmentally friendly packaging, and exceptional value.

Sally’s offers a delicious line of affordable cereals that appeal to both kids and adults. With a suggested retail price of $2.98 Canadian, Sally’s is priced lower than other national brands’ everyday prices. With nine tasty, family favorite flavors to choose from, there’s a simple solution for every craving: Whole Wheat Bundles(TM), Raisins & Bran, Marshmallow Moment(TM), Honey Graham Bliss(TM), Blue Pom Bundles(TM), Honey Puffed Delight(TM), Sweet Wheat Bundles(TM), Honey Oat Medley(TM), and Cinnamon Bliss(TM). Made using only high-quality ingredients and containing no artificial flavors, saturated fat or hydrogenated oils, and no high fructose corn syrup, all varieties are also free of cholesterol and trans fat.

“It’s been our company’s long-standing mission to help families eat well and save money,” says Linda Fisher, Malt-O-Meal’s corporate communications manager. “And we are excited to help Canadian families do just that with the launch of Sally’s.”

Consumers can now make a greener choice in the store without paying a price premium. By packaging Sally’s cereal in resealable bags and eliminating the exterior box (versus a traditional cereal that is packaged in a bag within a box), Sally’s cereal bags leave far less consumer packaging to recycle or dispose of than comparably-sized bag-in-box cereals. Malt-O-Meal also purchases wind energy credits to offset 100% of the electricity used in the manufacturing of Sally’s cereals.

To further reduce its packaging waste, Malt-O-Meal has partnered with TerraCycle® Canada, an international upcycling company that takes packaging materials that can’t be recycled and repurposes that material into new, high quality goods. Through this partnership with TerraCycle, consumers can collect empty Sally’s cereal bags and return them to TerraCycle for upcycling.

TerraCycle is organizing 650 Brigades in schools, charities and communities across Canada. These Brigades will function as collection sites for Sally’s cereal bags.

“Malt-O-Meal is committed to producing Sally’s cereal in a way that minimizes environmental impact and sustains natural resources for the future,” says Fisher. “Through our partnership with TerraCycle, we’re taking one more step to reduce packaging waste by creating a second life for used Sally’s cereal bags.”
