UK-Based Start-Up ELEAT Launches With High Protein Cereal

UK-based start-up ELEAT cereal is now sending orders out to the more than 1,000 people who signed up for pre-launch access. ELEAT was founded by two university sportsmen who wanted to create a nutrient-dense cereal for an active lifestyle. The pair developed the cereal in their student kitchen and received start-up funding and mentoring from the University of Bristol’s Careers Service. ELEAT’s cereal is vegan, gluten-free, low in sugar, and high in protein and fibre, including gut friendly prebiotics. ELEAT’S four flavors are: Chocolate Triumph, Cinnamon Sensation, Strawberry Blitz and Vanilla Thriller. The cereal will be delivered to customers on a subscription model in two packaging options: a large resealable 250g pouch and a 50g single-serve pack, designed for on-the-go. The subscription model allows customers to tailor the flavor and quantity to their needs. Over the coming year, ELEAT plans to extend from its direct-to-consumer business to retailers and diversify its product portfolio.

European Consumer Insights On Protein-Fortified Snacks

Glanbia Nutritionals' European Healthy Snacking Innovation Team conducted new research that discovered fortified protein snacks are popular with European consumers, who are generally turning to perceived healthier snacks over more traditional options. Its research found 16 percent of respondents are eating protein-fortified snacks, such as protein bars, powders, cereals and pancakes, at least once a week. This jumps significantly to 29 percent for active lifestyle consumers, and 40 percent for sports performance consumers. Another finding is that taste is non-negotiable for consumers. It’s the number one requirement for protein products, followed by being high in protein, low in sugar, and filling. European protein bar users are showing an interest in protein cookies (50 percent) and brownies (47 percent), while 34 percent say protein crisps sound appealing. Baked goods such as protein-fortified pastries and donuts (30 percent) are also rated highly, as well as small, bite-sized formats like protein bites (30 percent) and balls (24 percent).

Opopop’s Innovations In The Popcorn Market

Premium popcorn brand Opopop was founded in 2018 with the aim of innovating in the stagnant popcorn market. Opopop aims to differentiate itself from competitors such as Pop Secret and Orville Redenbacher’s through reimagining formats, flavors, and design. In 2021, Opopop launched its Flavor Wrapped Popcorn Kernels, which the company claims are the world’s first pre-flavored popcorn kernels. Each individual kernel is coated with flavoring, allowing the popcorn to be seasoned as it pops. This past January, Opopop launched its Peel + Pour cups, single-serve packages that contain popcorn kernels with a solid chunk of flavoring inside. The cups are meant to be used in Opopop’s collapsible silicone popper. Opopop also takes an experimental approach with its flavors, with varieties like Cinnalicious, Chedapeño, Salted Caramel and Maui Heat. In April, Opopop debuted its Wasabi flavor and last month launched its dill pickle flavor Pickle Monster. Opopop’s colorful branding and play on words attracts a younger audience. Opopop is available online on its website and in retailers such as Williams Sonoma and Foxtrot Market. The company is currently planning a wider retail launch at grocery stores to reach new consumers.

Key Trends Within BFY Foods: Functionality & Dietary Requirements

Within the BFY food landscape, two clear trends are emerging in product development: functional and diet-specific foods. Functional foods with claims of specific health benefits and ingredients such as adaptogens and nootropics are gaining traction. In 2021, global functional and fortified food sales reached $292 billion, including $83 billion in the US. A new functional snack start-up is DOH!, which offers vegan, gluten-free cookie dough enhanced with nutrients to target specific needs such as immune support and stress relief. Products promoting digestive health are particularly popular. For example, BelliWelli offers plant-based, gluten-free digestive health bars aimed at consumers suffering from irritable-bowel syndrome. Dalci serves a line of gut-friendly dessert bars formulated with anti-inflammatory ingredients such as avocado oil, coconut sugar and almond flour. Food alternatives are also increasingly popular as more consumers follow specific diets or eating patterns. Snow Days is a brand of organic, grain-free pizza bites made with a cassava flour crust, aimed to rival General Mill’s Totino’s Pizza Rolls. Additionally, Three Wishes Cereal, creates gluten-free, low sugar cereal that is formulated with chickpea, pea protein and tapioca.

Sweet Potato Snack Brand Spudsy Expands Distribution To 4,000 Stores

Sweet potato-based snack brand Spudsy has expanded its retail distribution to more than 4,000 new stores across the US. Spudsy’s Sweet Potato Puffs and Sweet Potato Fries will now be available in stores including H-E-B, Albertsons-Safeway, Hy-Vee, Stater Bros, Hudson News, and CVS. Spudsy makes its vegan, gluten-free snacks out of upcycled, imperfect sweet potatoes to cut down on food waste. 

Cape Town Brand Plato Makes Its Crisps From Recycled Beer Grains

Cape Town-based brand Plato collects spent grain, a by-product from beer production, to create its grain crisps. Each year, Plato's collects approximately 24 tons of left-over malted barley grains from Darling Brew, a beer maker in the Western Cape, and makes it into 6.5 tons of crisps a month. Plato’s crisps are manufactured by canola oil company Southern Oil, which owns the brand in part. The crisps are flash fried, which the company claims makes the fat content of the snack 50% lower than regular potato chips. Plato’s crisps are made to enjoy with beer and are available in three flavors: Jalapeño Chutney, Mature Cheddar, and Smoked BBQ. In the future, Plato is looking to use spent grain to produce crackers, cookies, and fermented drinks.

Kellogg Is Splitting Into Three Businesses

Kellogg Company has announced its decision to split into three independent companies focusing on cereal, snacks, and plant-based foods. Chairman and CEO Steve Cahillane claimed the division will give each company greater autonomy to encourage innovation and growth. The breakup will occur through two tax-free spinoffs that will be completed by the end of 2023. Cahillane will remain as the CEO of the global snacking business, which will include the snack brands Pringles, Cheez-Its and Pop-Tarts, along with Kellogg's international cereal portfolio, the group's African noodles business and the US Eggo unit. Kellogg’s snacking business will focus on innovation, brand building and expanding internationally, including in South America and AMEA. While much smaller, the plant-based unit will be led by the Morning Star Farms brand and focus on growth and product innovation. Kellogg shares jumped as much as 5.5 percent on the day of the announcement, the most in over a year. Under the plan, Kellogg shareholders will receive shares in the two spinoff companies on a pro rata basis.

Kellogg’s Attempts To Debase UK HFSS Regulations In Court

Kellogg’s has turned to the U.K. High Court in a three-pronged attempt to prevent the upcoming government HFSS restrictions. Kellogg’s first argument claims the HFSS regulations should be declared “ultra vires” because enforcement powers given to local authorities to enforce the rules have never been approved by parliament. If the court decides the enforcement regime is illegal it could force the government to completely discard the legislation. It could also allow the regulations to continue but order the government to revaluate how they are enforced, leaving the ban in limbo. The second strand of Kellogg’s case centres on the HFSS nutrient profiling model, which was set up in 2004 as the basis for Ofcom’s policing of advertising aimed at children. Kellogg’s claims the model has never been before parliament. If the argument succeeds, the government would be forced to either drop the legislation or re-pass it with a different model. Kellogg’s third claim is that cereals should be excluded from the clampdown because most consumers add milk to the product, contributing to calcium intake and the cereal’s overall nutritional value. Within the court documents, Kellogg’s claimed it could lose up to £113 million in sales if the government’s crackdown on HFSS promotions goes ahead. Within the coming weeks, the court is expected to reveal which of the legal arguments the review will hear. If Kellogg’s arguments succeed, it would have huge implications on the government’s current obesity strategy.

The Unlikely Connection Between International Snacks And Hip-Hop

International snacks and beverages have long been popular in the U.S. International supermarkets like 99 Ranch and online stores such as Weee! thrive off the demand for them. They have a cult-like following among customers who feel compelled to try each new product and flavor. Popular flavors include Spicy Sour Doritos from Israel, Chinese Chicken Cheetos from China, and Esan Hot Pot Lay's Chips from Thailand. Recently, the international snack industry has crossed over with hip-hop culture. San Jose rapper Yonex Jones sells international chips and beverages at his TankShop in San Jose and in his box truck at pop-up events. Furthermore, Exotic Pop, a Houston beverage company that launched in 2016, sells international beverages and makes branded sodas that feature popular rappers including Soulja Boy, Sean Combs and Too $hort. According to Exotic Pop's founder and CEO, Charleston Wilson, international snacks and beverages connect to hip-hop culture due to exclusivity and high price point. Wilson claims international snacks are often flaunted on social media and even music videos to emphasise wealth and success. 

Peatos Releases New Crunchy Pizza Rings

Plant-based ‘junk’ food brand PeaTos has announced the release of its latest offering: Crunchy Pizza Rings, a Funyuns-style onion ring in a dairy-free “cheesy” pizza flavor. New in 2022, PeaTos uses proprietary technology to replicate the dairy experience using only 100 percent plant-based ingredients. With its technology, PeaTos aims to challenge the PepsiCo Frito-Lay’s category monopoly by creating products that offer the flavor of junk food snacks like Cheetos and Funyuns but with the benefit of better-for-you nutrition. PeaTos replaces the traditional corn base with peas to offer more protein and fiber than the leading salty snack counterparts but with fewer calories, and less fat and sodium.

Research Finds Protein Snacks Are Very Popular, But Taste Is Key

A Europe-focused study from Glanbia Nutritionals looked at consumer attitudes relating to protein snacks. Consumers from Germany, France, Sweden and Italy were polled. The survey found that about one in six eat them once a week or more to manage appetite and energy, as well as for enjoyment, and consumers are reducing their consumption of less healthy snacks. Nearly half think protein bars are healthy snacks. Although many use snacks as nourishment and for an energy boost, more use them as a treat, and taste is the most important factor when choosing a snack. Protein content is then considered, as well as the amount of sugar it contains. The study also found that format innovation in protein snacks will become increasingly important, with interest shown for protein cookies and brownies, as well as protein crisps, protein-fortified pastries and protein bites, balls and spreads. For its part, Glanbia Nutritionals has created Crunchie Milk Protein Crisps, which can be included in bars and snacks, and also sells custom premix solutions of vitamins and minerals, with bioactive, functional and nutritional ingredients.

Plant&Co. Secures Rabba Fine Foods Listing For Holy Crap Cereal

Holy Crap comes products certified organic, non-GMO, kosher and gluten free, containing hemp, buckwheat, chia seeds and gluten-free oats. They are also high in fiber, free from the top nine allergens and contain no added flavors, preservatives, chemicals, color, salt or oil. 

Chasin’ Dreams Farm Is A Dream Come True For Sydney Chasin

A San Diego gluten-free snacks brand, Chasin’ Dreams Farm, is the culmination of almost two decades of effort by Sydney Chasin, who has eaten gluten-free food since she was seven and started to experiment with making healthy snacks at home. The brand has launched air-popped, sorghum-based “Tiny Pops” in three varieties: sweet and salty, cinnamon and cocoa. They look like mini-popcorn and can also be eaten as a topping. Chasin established the company in 2018 while she was working in a New York City restaurant and prototyped the snacks in her apartment. Sorghum can be used as a gluten-free flour replacement, but it can also popped and is used in crackers and chips Chasin chose to air pop them without oil. The startup raised $62,000 through the Republic crowdfunding platform and has also been backed by Kathleen King, an angel investor. The products are currently sold by Compass Group in five regions, and can also be bought on the brand’s direct-to-consumer site and on Amazon.

Rise In Meal Fragmentation Leads To New Snacking Trends

Consumers are increasingly moving away from eating the traditional three meals a day, instead turning to frequent snacking and meal fragmentation. As the line between meals and snacks becomes increasingly blurred, consumers are becoming more concerned with the nutritional value of snacks. This is reflected in three visible trends: rise in plant-based alternatives, protein claims and lower sugar content. Innova Market Insights’ number two trend for 2022 is “Plant-Based: The Canvas for Innovation,” which reflects consumers’ desire for diet variation due to health and sustainability concerns. The popularity of plant-based products coincides with the rise of protein claims, which are also popular beyond plant-based foods, including meal replacements, sport nutrition, dairy products and cereals. Another key trend is the increased demand for sugar-reduced products and natural sugar alternatives. Innova Market Insights found the use of sweeteners in F&B launches increased globally by 3 percent from 2020 to 2021. As a result, manufacturers are developing new natural and low-calorie sweeteners. Earlier this year, Sweegen rolled out Ultratia, a new high-intensity sweetener from brazzein. In addition, Finnish confectionery brand Fazer is upcycling oat hulls to create xylitol, a sugar replacer with 40 percent fewer calories. 

PeaTos Expands Retail Footprint

Plant-based ‘junk’ food brand PeaTos has recently expanded distribution into more than 2,000 CVS Health and hundreds of H-E-B retail locations nationwide, following a recent transition to become a 100 percent plant-based brand through proprietary technology. PeaTos hopes to challenge the PepsiCo Frito-Lay’s category monopoly by creating products that offer the flavor of junk food snacks like Cheetos and Funyuns but with the benefit of better-for-you nutrition. PeaTos replaces the traditional corn base with peas to offer more protein and fiber than the leading salty snack counterparts but with fewer calories, and less fat and sodium. It currently offers two varieties: Crunchy Onion Rings (Original or Pizza) and Crunchy No-Cheese Curls (Original or Fiery). PeaTos is now available at more than 6,700 retailers nationwide, including Kroger and Sprouts, and online at Peatos.com, SamsClub.com and on Amazon. 

Ancient Brands Milling Announces Expansion Plan

Ancient Brands Milling has announced plans to invest $26.5 million to relocate and expand its puffed grains capacity in Dyersville, Iowa. Ancient Brands is a manufacturer of organic and non-GMO puffed grains for use in products such as cereal, granola and energy bars. After experiencing high demand, the company has nearly reached the capacity of its current facilities. As part of the investment, Ancient Brands plans to replace its current facility by building a new 92,000-square-foot plant in Dyersville. The new facility will allow the company to expand its portfolio to include puffed wheats. In addition to bringing in new high-volume equipment, the expansion will increase Ancient Brand’s capacity from 2.5 million to 20 million pounds of puffed grains per year. The company will start building the new facility this month and hopes it will be ready to start-up by the end of Q2 next year.

Thai Snack Brand MUNCHHH To Launch This Year

Thai firm Balance Corp is planning to launch its first product range, MUNCHHH, later this year. MUNCHHH has developed a range of vegan snacks based on what it has termed the ‘middle ground’ of snacking, a balance of health and indulgence. All of the brand’s products have been designed to mirror the nutritional proportions of a balanced diet; they contain one part protein, one part carbohydrates and 0.2 parts fiber. MUNCHHH’s products are made with various local grains and lentils, making them lower in calories and fat and higher in protein and fiber compared with regular potato chips. Though the brand has not officially launched, it has already received awards: the bronze award at the 2021 global Pentawards for its packaging design, and a place in Thailand’s SPACE-F accelerator programme, which is run by the Thai government and food giant Thai Union. The firm is looking to formally launch MUNCHHH through its online website later this year, starting with selling its savoury snack in Mala and Nori Seaweed flavors. MUNCHHH is also in the process of developing other snacks, including chocolate balls, cereal, ice cream and gummy bears. 

Main Findings From The 2022 IFIC Food & Health Survey

The 2022 Annual Food & Health Survey conducted by the International Food Information Council has revealed major changes in Americans’ food attitudes and behaviors in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and generational shifts. An oversample found that Gen Z takes a more holistic approach to health than older generations and is the only generation with emotional/mental health surfacing in the top three health benefits sought from foods, beverages or nutrients. Younger consumers are also driving a big shift toward online food shopping, with 35 percent of Gen Z and 37 percent of Millennials respectively shopping online for food at least once a week.

Snacking has increased. 73 percent of adults said they snack at least once a day, up from 58 percent in 2021. This may be due to stress as most Americans report feeling ‘very’ or ‘somewhat’ stressed over the past six months and 24 percent of adults said they always or often eat when feeling stressed. People reporting feeling very stressed in last six months are more likely to snack three or more times a day than those feeling somewhat stressed (29 percent vs 10 percent). 

Nearly 40 percent said environmental sustainability has an impact on their purchase decisions, up from 27 percent in 2019, and 57 percent are concerned about food waste. Inflation rates are also affecting consumption habits, with 83 percent noticing food and beverage price rises in the past year, of which 29 percent said they purchased less than they otherwise would have. 

The Cracker King Shares Upcoming Product Launches

Gluten-free cracker company The Cracker King has revealed two new upcoming product launches. The company will add a Parmesan & Herb flavor to its cracker line-up, which include award-winning flavors such as Cheddar ‘N Pepper and Rosemary & Sea Salt.

BFY Snack Start-Ups Attract Investors Amid Upcoming HFSS Rules

Investors are increasingly funnelling money into better-for-you snack companies due to healthy eating trends and upcoming HFSS rules. More specifically, the HFSS rules have given confidence to investors that healthier eating will accelerate. 

While online crowdfunding has proven successful for many snacking start-ups and SMEs, others have sought support from specialist investment vehicles. Mission Ventures is a key operator of accelerator programs in the UK, with two programs: Good Food Fund and Batch Ventures. The Good Food Fund supports brands tackling childhood obesity through providing funding, scaling up manufacturing and managing costs. The program has taken on start-ups including quinoa crisps brand Nombots, healthy marshmallow maker Lexi's Treats, jelly supplier Naturelly, and chocolate-covered carrot biscuit brand Rootles. It now intends to back a further 10 to 15 healthier food and drink brands in the coming year, with a specific focus on non-HFSS snacks. Batch Ventures is the other business support program by Mission, created in partnership with Warburtons to back baking related innovation. While not aimed exclusively at better-for-you brands, Batch Ventures has already supported baked sorghum snack brand Insane Grain and non-HFSS oat cookie brand Snackzilla. Batch Ventures also backs Dorset biscuit supplier The Artful Baker. 

Other notable start-ups backed by other investors include Perkier, Fitbakers, The Savourists and Boundless. Last year, healthy snack bar maker Perkier raised more than £1 million in an oversubscribed crowdfunding round, smashing its £400,000 target. Fitbakes, which makes non- HFSS cakes and snack bars, enjoyed a successful bout of crowdfunding in 2021, securing £525,000 from 313 investors. Savory snack bar brand The Savourists raised £200,000 and is available at Whole Foods Market and Amazon. Germinated nuts and seeds snack brand Boundless has raised a total of £1.6 million from angel and other investors. 

Investor support is increasingly important due to cost-of-living increases and delays in the UK government’s HFSS regulations. Increases in the cost of living due to war in Ukraine has upped supply and production costs for start-ups, which are more vulnerable to cost increases than large corporations. Smaller brands are also less likely to be able to pass the higher costs through to the shopper, and delays in introducing HFSS rules will give larger corporations more time to innovate and reformulate.  

Trends Within BFY Snack Bars

As better-for-you snacks are increasing in popularity, there remains potential in the snack bar category. Snack bars are forecast to grow 14 percent over the next three years as consumers move away from unhealthy options such as confectionery and biscuits. Snack bars with added fiber, protein or vitamins, or those that help consumers reach their five-a-day, are in high demand. More consumers are also avoiding ‘processed’ snacks bars and are switching to bars with whole and raw ingredients, such as nuts, fruit and wholegrain. However, though consumers are looking for healthier options, they are still looking for flavor cues from traditionally more indulgent products.

Canadian Start-Up Muskoka Granola Seeing Growth

Canadian start-up Muskoka Granola has seen positive growth since its launch in August 2021.  The handmade, vegan and gluten-free granola is only sweetened with Canadian maple syrup. The company started by selling in local markets, and is now sold on its website, 15 stores and seasonal markets such as Bracebridge and Gravenhurst.
