RyKrisp is a brand of rye crisp bread introduced in 1899.[1] Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the RyKrisp plant was purchased by Ralston Purina in 1926.[2] In 1994, the Ralston portion of Ralston Purina was spun off into a new company called Ralcorp Holdings, including the RyKrisp operations. Ralcorp was acquired by ConAgra Foods in 2013.

In January 2015 ConAgra Foods announced that the factory that produces RyKrisp would be shuttered and the product would be discontinued due to declining demand.[3] RyKrisp Inc. bought the brand in April 2015 with plans to revitalize it once a new manufacturing partner is found. A larger-scale commercialization test is currently planned for October 2015 with commercial production expected some time after that.[4]
