American Licorice Company, maker of the Red Vines and Sour Punch brands, has announced it has acquired Torie & Howard, maker of Organic Hard Candy and Chewie Fruities, as well as Organic Candy Chews.

Co-founded by Torie Burke and Howard Slatkin in 2012 with a pledge to produce health friendly and socially conscious treats, Torie & Howard candies are USDA Organic and Kosher certified, allergen friendly, Non-GMO, vegan, and gluten free.

Burke will also join the American Licorice team to continue developing the Torie & Howard brand.

John Kretchmer, CEO of American Licorice, said the company will continue to focus on “investing in happiness, our communities, people and the environment and the Torie & Howard brand is a strong compliment to Red Vines Made Simple, an all-natural, Non-GMO Project certified line of products​”.

Torie & Howard also complements recent American Licorice investments, including a minority investment in Theo Chocolate Inc, the first organic, fairtrade certified chocolate maker in North America, and an investment in Mindful Nourishment, LLC, the creators of the nutritional snack Zing bars.
