Paterson’s push the button with innovative snack product

Orang-u-tangys-4-resizedEarlier this year leading baking experts, Paterson Arran, launched an innovative new snack product, that takes a quirky approach to the ever-popular cookie.

Targeting the children’s and adult snack market, Paterson’s Cookie Buttons are a flavoursome portion controlled product (24g), ideal for lunchboxes, snacking and eating on the go.

Broadening the appeal of cookies, Cookie Buttons come in two different flavours that are reduced in saturated fat; Choc Chip Shortbread (2.7% sat fat) and Fruit and Oat (1.6%). On-shelf appeal is maximised with eye-catching, bold packaging.

Allan Miller, Sales & Marketing Director for Paterson’s, said: “At Paterson’s we continually strive to create new products that will capture the imagination of consumers, and Cookie Buttons do just that. They are a firm favourite snacking treat and ideal for school lunchboxes, office desk dining and snacking on the go.”

“The palm-oil issue remains high on our agenda and we can now add Cookie Buttons to the expanding list of Paterson’s palm-oil free products. We remain committed to this important issue not only because of the health benefits but more importantly the strong environmental message.”

Cookie Buttons come in strips of three packs, with perforations, and each case contains 18 strips.
