Smoked Shorty Sausages will be in Target very soon.
BOULDER, Colo. – Duke’s Smoked Meats announced on April 26 that its Smoked Shorty Sausages are now available at select Target locations in the US. The announcement comes as the company works to gain a foothold in the premium meat snacking segment. Duke’s saw sales growth of more than 150 percent in 2015.
Two of Duke’s varieties, Original and Hot & Spicy will be sold in 5-oz. packages. There will be a limited time pricing to begin the new placement starting May 7.
“Our partnership with Target marks an exciting time for Duke’s as we continue to expand and grow,” Justin Havlick, Duke’s president and founder, said in a statement. “We couldn’t be happier to have the opportunity to share our craft approach to jerky with the Target community and provide shoppers with a high-protein, low-sugar snack option that is healthy, convenient and delicious.”
The Shorty Sausages are gluten free with no hormones or nitrates added and contain 7 grams of protein and 0 to 2 grams of sugar per serving.
