Inc. magazine today revealed that nutpods (aka Green Grass Foods), the beloved brand of non-dairy creamers, is No. 13 on its annual Inc. 5000 list.
“It’s a dream come true to be included on the Inc. 5000 list,” said Madeline Haydon, the founder and CEO of nutpods. “We are so proud of the growth of nutpods, a product I created based on a personal need, and are so thankful for all the support along the way - from my first Kickstarter backers to our loyal fans who have made this growth possible. As proud as we are, we are just getting started in our mission to reshape the non-dairy creamer category to allow people to rethink their coffee ritual.”
Inc.’s 5000 List is known to be the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Nutpods was also recognized as the #2 fastest growing food & beverage company, a list that was dominated by plant-based and better-for-you options.
Nutpods (aka Green Grass Foods) is an independent, natural foods manufacturer based in Seattle, Washington, dedicated to introducing dairy-free creamers from plant-based ingredients. They have grown to be the #3 brand in the exploding plant-based creamer category by cultivating and leveraging a passionate consumer following. They initially launched as a Kickstarter project, where their early supporters became evangelists for their clean label, (Wholw30 approved). Nutpods is the #1 selling brand on Amazon and fastest-growing brand of refrigerated plant-based creamers in national retailers. The brand’s success is driven in part by their unconventional route to market: starting with "direct to consumer" prior to expanding into traditional grocery sales.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
