Post-Pandemic Shifts In Snacking Trends

November 14, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
SNAC International, an international trade association for the snack industry, has recently identified significant post-pandemic shifts in consumer trends. Stemming from the lifestyle shift forced by the pandemic, one prominent trend in today’s snacking landscape is the move toward snacking from home. In tandem, e-commerce snack shopping has also grown in popularity, with a 27 percent increase since the onset of the pandemic and an 83 percent increase in 2020 alone. Snacking frequency has also increased in recent years. The average consumer snacks 2.7 times per day, and the number of consumers who snack five or more times per day is on the rise. Millennial and Gen Z consumers are setting the stage for this increase, as they are more likely to snack throughout the day and replace meals with snacks.

Tata Soulfull Expects Increased Demand Post-Diwali

November 10, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
Soulfull, a millet-based breakfast cereal and snacking brand recently acquired by Tata Consumer Products Ltd., is expecting strong sales in the November-January period following Diwali. While health is not a priority during the festive season, Tata Soulfull expects increased demand in the period following Diwali, Christmas and New Year, as customers experience guilt after the period of indulgent eating. As the number of health-conscious consumers in India continues to rise, Soulfull is preparing for the growing demand through working on its distribution, accessibility and product innovation. Soulfull has expanded into mass markets with multiple price points to cater to a wide spectrum of consumers. It has also ramped up its distribution network and is available in 400,000 retailers, up from 15,000 last year. Previously a metro-focused brand, non-metro purchases now accounts for 35-40 percent of Soulfull’s overall sales.

Experts Cast Doubts On Plant-Based Jerky Market

October 28, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
Industry experts are questioning whether plant-based jerky can break out of the niche market. According to SPINS data, plant-based jerky sales doubled to more than $20 million last year in the U.S., excluding e-commerce. However, the category is still unlikely to challenge the beef jerky industry, which is estimated to be worth $5 billion. Nicholas Fereday, an executive director for food and consumer trends at Dutch investment bank Rabobank, argues price and taste are essential to the success of plant-based jerky, adding that plant-based jerky should be at a discount to meat-based products to recognize it as a substitute product. However, even if the plant-based option manages to be cheaper and palatable, it will often still not contain the same protein levels as meat jerky, reducing its functionality. John Baumgartner, a managing director at Japanese investment bank Mizuho Securities, points to Beyond Meat’s jerky as an example. While Beyond Meat has strong distribution through PepsiCo and is selling its product at a 20-30 percent discount to meat jerky, the product is still experiencing slow growth and low repeat sales.

Data from ADM finds that 74% of consumers are keen to be adventurous and try new flavours from around the world. Consumers often perceive snacks as ‘low risk’ opportunities for food exploration, as they tend to be smaller quantities and at lower price points than full meals.

Kameda Seika Aims To Grow Sales Outside Japan

October 25, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
Rice snack manufacturer Kameda Seika aims to leverage growing interest in gluten-free and meat-free options to expand its business beyond its domestic market in Japan. The company’s goal is overseas revenue of 50 billion yen by the end of the decade, from 9.2 billion in fiscal 2021. CEO Lekh Raj Juneja says there’s been an increase in rice snack sales in Asia and in the U.S., where it sells gluten-free crackers through subsidiaries. Juneja also wants to enter Europe and South America. The company’s flagship rice cracker, Kaki-no-tane, is popular in India, where it’s called Kari Kari. Juneja added that as the company deals with higher costs, it can reduce production costs by structural changes or by adding value to its products so it can raise prices.

New Study Points To Mushroom Boost For Functional Foods

October 22, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
A new study by Grand View Research forecasts the global functional mushroom category to reach almost $25 billion this year, and $47 billion by 2028. Zoey Henderson, from low-alcohol mushroom beer brand Fungtn, said the pandemic kickstarted the boom as consumers sought natural immunity booster. Mushrooms have been used in medicine for thousands of years. Henderson sees opportunities in offering supplements in more fun ways, such as in beer, as they can be seen as a bit boring. London Nootropics launched an adaptogenic coffee blend in 2020 using lion's mane and cordyceps mushrooms. The brand secured a listing at Harrod’s this year and also has a pop-up café near Piccadilly Circus that sells mushroom chocolates and products from other mushroom brands. Price is the main obstacle to mass adoption, but being able to convert their umami flavours into great-tasting functional products is also a challenge. However, the health benefits could begin to outweigh any reluctance caused by taste. Puresport founder Grayson Hart sees mushrooms developing along the lines of CBD.

Hong Kong’s Consumer Council Releases Statement on Seaweed Consumption

October 17, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
The Consumer Council in Hong Kong tested 27 ready-to-eat seaweed snack samples. All 27 had a high iodine content. Iodine can provide metabolism benefits when taken in moderation, but with excessive consumption could impact thyroid function. One of the four products labelled suitable for infants and young children contained iodine at a level per serving 90 percent above the daily recommended nutrient intake for young children aged 1-3. The tests found that 19 samples were deemed high-sodium foods and 10 were found to be high-fat foods. The Consumer Council advised consumers to read the ingredients list and nutrition label on seaweed products and to be especially aware of their sodium, fat and sugar intake levels. It also said that taste preferences are often formed at an early age and warned parents that feeding children "strong-tasting" foods such as those high in sodium may result in the children developing a preference for salty foods.

Search For Healthier Food Led To Launch Of Allergen-Friendly Snacks

October 17, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
The Real Renee snacks are the result of founder Renee Sorgi’s search for snacks that didn't contain allergens that upset her stomach. Sorgi said that food often left her feeling “bloated, fatigued” and her “skin was bad, and I just knew it wasn’t normal." After a diagnosis of gut health issues, she stopped eating nuts, grain, soy, dairy, eggs and wheat, but found it hard to find things to eat in the grocery stores. Experimenting at home, she made a granola with sliced tiger nuts as an oat replacement, olive oil, syrup, cinnamon and salt, with chocolate chips added. Sorgi launched The Real Renee in 2020, and the pandemic gave her time to further develop the products. The brand now has two granola products (chocolate chip and cinnamon) and three cracker flavors (chive, garlic, and Rosemary). They are available online and in the Rochester Hills Farmers Market. Sorgi is trying to raise money through crowdfunding.

FDA Highlights Cereals It Considers No Longer Healthy

October 15, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
The list of breakfast cereals the Food and Drug Administration no longer considers to be healthy includes Kellogg's Special K, Frosted Mini Wheats and Raisin Bran; Honey Nut Cheerios and Corn Flakes from General Mills; and Post Holding Co's Honey Bunches of Oats and Honey Roasted. Quaker Oats's Life cereal also made the list on account of its 8 grams of added sugars. But even these are healthier than some others, such as Post Consumer Brands' Golden Crisp, which contains 18 grams of sugar per serving.
