Mini Melts USA selected as one of
Bain & Company’s 2024
Insurgent Brands

Leading frozen novelty company is recognized as a fast-moving consumer goods company reshaping its category

TREVOSE, PA – Mini Melts USA (Mini Melts) has been named to Bain & Company’s 2024 Insurgent Brands list, which identifies companies disrupting their fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) categories in the U.S. Mini Melts is one of 97 brands to make this year’s list and was also selected in 2023. Mini Melts was previously identified as a potential future Insurgent in 2021.

“The Mini Melts team is thrilled to have been recognized as one of Bain & Company’s 2024 Insurgent Brands,” said Dan Kilcoyne, CEO and Founder of Mini Melts USA. “We’re continuing to experience robust growth as we expand to share our delicious treats with our customers across the country. This recognition further solidifies this growth potential and brand that truly resonates with our consumer base, and I’m looking forward to continued work with our exceptional team to push us even further.”

Bain & Company defines insurgent brands as those that generate more than $25 million of annual revenues in tracked channels, have grown more than 10 times their category’s average growth rate over the last five years, and maintained at least 10% growth over last two years, while remaining independent or having been acquired by a large consumer packaged goods company only within the last two years.

“Every year, the Insurgent Brands we identify provide insight into where innovative and disruptive growth is happening in the sector,” said Charlotte Apps, executive vice president of Bain’s Consumer Products practice. “At a time when many scale incumbents have reached their limits on price increases and volumes have stagnated, the insurgents on our list prove that a return to volume-driven growth will require a refocus on meaningful consumer-centric value propositions and strong velocities at the shelf. Looking forward, we expect these insurgents to continue to capture a greater share of category growth.”
