RyKrisp Update – June 6, 2021 15


Today is the day we remember those who participated in the D-Day landings. It was a long time ago, but reminds us all of the service that people are willing to offer on behalf of others. RyKrisp was around back in those days, but to the best of our knowledge didn’t ever make it into rations of soldiers. We wondered a bit as one of the uses in recent years was in “survival” packs due to the long shelf life. On to more current matters, which is how are things going with litigation.

Last Friday there was a hearing in front of the presiding judge where the defendant tried again to have claims dismissed and was unsuccessful. As a reminder, the current litigation relates to RyKrisp seeking to recover the damages it won at trial and the defendant’s insurer claiming it has no obligation to cover that loss. There are some technical issues upon which we have to follow up, but the next stage is probably a more thorough discovery phase relating to the case. We consider this progress.

We don’t have any timeline as the pandemic has thrown legal proceedings in all courts into a major slowdown. So the fact that we have our next briefing in early July is a sign that we’re moving forward. Thanks to all for your continued support, comments, and the like. This seems like a saga, which it is, but we’re happy to keep you informed of things. All the best to our fans.

The RyKrisp Team

  • I hope litigation is settled and someone will again produce what I considered the best product of its type available.

    I was looking for RyKrisp in the walmart the other day and was shocked that I and an employee of the store could not find it. Please get back into production ASAP. I want to buy it again.

    This is so messed up! There was always rykrisp in every grocery store , in the cracker aisle! I love cheese, and herring.. and nothing tastes better! There are crackers, that I am sure had nowhere near the sales that Rykrisp did,that still have a place on grocers shelfs!! I hope you guys make it through to see it to the end, I.E. Rykrisp was available everywhere! Not that you folks are willing to sell, or back down, but it makes me wonder , if a grocery chain that has the money and the distribution , I see no reason why it would not be a bread winner! “ no pun intended” umm.. well maybe!! See this thru or find another sponsee !! I cannot in good faith, think that , the new owners of the brand..ralston etc.. just let it die! Obviously, that is what the litigation is about! Please keep me informed.

      Chuck – your passion is appreciated. Ralson/ConAgra is like most large companies…less emphasis on the minor brands. We took that challenge on and then had a major legal hiccup. We now hope that gives us an opportunity to do a proper relaunch, but collecting large legal judgments is not easy. On the case. Ted L
