The Brand Liaison Partners with Balchem Corporation to Create Licensable Food Concepts for Ninja Life Hacks
Children’s book series Ninja Life Hacks has announced an agreement with Balchem Corporation, a leading global ingredient supplier, to work together to secure strategic partners for branded food products. The partnership with Balchem was brokered by The Brand Liaison as licensing agent for Ninja Life Hacks. Balchem will develop Ninja Life Hacks food concepts that promote a healthy emotional and physical relationship with foods. The products will range from healthy foods for cognitive health to ice creams for celebrations and will be developed for specific partners and retailers.
Balchem delivers customized ingredient systems, key minerals and essential nutrients to food manufacturers. There are three primary areas where Balchem’s food technology will be utilized to bring the Ninja Life Hacks brand to life: Brain Power, Emotional Well-Being and Immune Health & Nutrition. Balchem will work with their partners to bring these branded snacks to market. The Ninja Life Hacks characters assist in building avenues for conversation so the ultimate goal is to bring emotional and physical health discussions to the kitchen, lunchroom and dinner table.
