Yesterday PepsiCo announced the 10 brands that will participate in the six-month Nutrition Greenhouse North America accelerator program.

Each participating company will initially receive $20,000 in funding and have access to mentors from PepsiCo brands including Quaker, Naked, and Stacy’s. At the end of the program, one brand will be chosen to receive an additional $100,000 and an opportunity to continue working with the beverage giant.

Companies were selected based on their products, brand, focus on nutrition, business model, and position in the market. Without further ado, here is the class of 2018:
