Frequently Asked Questions

Hummus Plus Chicken, as its name suggests, is a combination of hummus and fresh chicken. It is the first and only hummus-based snack paired with chicken in the marketplace. Hummus Plus Chicken is also distinctive because of its packaging: it is available in a grab-and-go container that contains a fork and napkin.
Hummus Plus Chicken launched 6 and 8-oz. in the summer of 2015, sold primarily in Grocery Deli, located regionally across the U.S..
Hummus Plus is part of Pure Mediterranean Foods, a holding company that continually looks to consumers and foodservice operators to better understand emerging trends both home and abroad. When doing so, the company saw an emergence of fast-casual Mediterranean restaurants that were pairing protein with fresh hummus for a healthy, on-the-go meal. Similarly, in Grocery, Pure Mediterranean Foods noticed that innovation in hummus was limited to flavor, topping, and bean-type expansion, with no real breakthrough new products offered to shoppers. With protein becoming an increasingly popular part of people’s diets, and Mediterranean restaurants entering the ever-popular fast-casual space, Hummus Plus was born, offering consumers a different kind of nutritious, convenient snack.
Introduced in April 2016, the 4-oz. Hummus Plus Chicken meets the needs of shoppers that are looking for a quick and healthy snack, in-between meals. The smaller portion pack has already been well received when compared to other hummus-based snacks in the marketplace. In a recent focus group, one half of consumers said they would prefer the snack-portion of Hummus Plus Chicken over the leading hummus-based snack packs paired with pretzels or crackers.
The 4-oz. Hummus Plus Chicken products are available in three varieties: Traditional Hummus + Oven-Roasted Chicken Breast; Roasted Red Pepper Hummus + BBQ Seasoned Chicken Breast; and Garlic Hummus + Garlic Herb Chicken Breast.

The 6-oz. and 8-oz. Hummus Plus Chicken products are available in the mentioned varieties plus two additional varieties: Garlic Hummus + Chipotle Chicken Breast; and Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus + Oven Roasted Chicken Breast.
The “PLUS” in Hummus Plus is for protein. Each 4-oz. package provides up to 14 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber for sustained energy.
