Tarrytown, NY, Nov. 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Nightfood, Inc. (NGTF), the start-up ice cream company addressing America’s $50 billion-dollar nighttime snacking problem, announced today that CEO Sean Folkson conducted an interview with Wall Street Reporter in advance of the November 14, 2019 presentation at the Super Stock Live Conference.
The interview covered topics including the Nightfood national rollout strategy, the future of the ice cream category, and what can be learned from the success of Halo Top and other successful consumer goods launches in the age of social media.
On the call Folkson discusses trends in the consumer packaged good space related to functional snacking, category creation, and recent merger and acquisition activity. The interview also touches on recent and upcoming Nightfood distribution developments.
When asked about all the recent media coverage Nightfood has been receiving, including being featured on The Today Show last week, Folkson responded, “When people learn about Nightfood, it’s immediately compelling, especially if you’re one of the 85% of the people snacking at night, and eating unhealthy stuff, it will stop you dead in your tracks. Who doesn’t like ice cream, and who doesn’t want better sleep? So, you put those two things together, and it’s almost irresistible to the media.”
Folkson mentioned that meetings with additional supermarket chains are ongoing, and the brand has received word from multiple additional top-50 chains that they plan to add Nightfood in early 2020.

Super Stock Live takes place on November 14, 2019 at 12:30 eastern. Nightfood will be presenting, and interested parties can livestream the event. Registration is free at the conference page.
