Zak Normandin, 29, a father of three with an entrepreneurial and creative mind, launched Little Duck in 2010 with Tiny Fruits; bite-sized, sugar-free snacks made from 100 percent organic fruit. At the time, Zak was a new dad and could not find any snacks for his kids without added sugars, pesticides, and GMOs. Now, at the forefront of the kids food category in product, design, and consumer interaction, Little Duck strives to not only fill a void in the market but to re-invent the market itself.

In only two short years, the success of Tiny Fruits has led Little Duck to worldwide distribution. The company has expanded to roughly 10,000 stores nationwide including Whole Foods, Toys “R” Us and buybuy BABY and has major plans for continued growth. Mighty Oats, the most recent launch in early 2013, is a single-serve package of oatmeal made using ancient grains. It is the first kid’s food product of its kind that produces zero net-waste to the consumer.
All of Little Duck Organic’s products are certified organic and Kosher, all natural (no added salts, sugars, colors or preservatives) and Non-GMO Project verified. As a Certified B Corporation, Little Duck Organics meets rigorous social and environmental standards. Additionally, Little Duck Organics has teamed up with 1% for Humanity to help fight poverty, hunger, and malnutrition worldwide.
