The deal, announced this morning (13 August), will see Zetar produce Marmite nuts through its natural snacks division, trading as Humdinger. The agreement will take effect from 1 October.

Zetar said the licensing agreement is directly in line with its strategy to focus on growing its range of higher margin branded products.
