Fruit-Nut Cereals, Inc. was incorporated in Maine, but was based in Somerville, Massachusetts.
The company manufactured a healthy cereal made of whole wheat, bran, malt, figs, raisins and walnuts.
The company had limited distribution at its start, frequently not being able to meet store demands. The company actually adopted a slogan "Don't Blame the Grocer - it's our fault if you can't always get Fruit-Nut Cereal."
Eventually, the company was able to ramp up productions and expand distribution throughout New England.
