Supplier HPG has announced a series of new industry exclusive partnerships between innovative food brands and the company’s Batch & Bodega line. Launched on April 6, Batch & Bodega is now offering daily-made fresh food from best-in-class makers, shipped directly to customers at one-piece minimums with customized gift messages, no set-up or drop-ship fees, and all-inclusive shipping. Launch partners include The Killer Brownie Company in Miamisburg, Ohio; Atomic Creamery in Newport Beach, California; ‘Lette Macarons in Beverly Hills, California; Brooklyn Cupcakes in Brooklyn, New York, and H&H Bagels in New York, New York.

The expansion into the fresh food market builds on Batch & Bodega’s goal of delivering the highest quality food gifts in the promotional industry. Jason Lucash (pictured above), HPG’s chief development officer and founder of Batch & Bodega, says, “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.”

Batch & Bodega intentionally supports independent food producers across the country, including many businesses that were deeply impacted by the pandemic.

Batch & Bodega’s kits will remain the core of the business while the fresh offerings expand on the existing platform of food experiences. More fresh food offerings are planned for the Batch & Bodega portfolio throughout the summer.
