Snack Maker KIND Offers Advice To Retailers On Healthy Snack Marketing

October 21, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Eighty-five percent of U.K. shoppers are actively trying to improve their diet in some way, so it’s no surprise that healthy snacking is set to boom. Although snack maker KIND obviously wants retailers to fill store shelves with its snack products, it offers some general advice on how to take advantage of the fact that shoppers are willing to pay up to 30 percent more for products with perceived benefits – “a great opportunity to grow the basket spend of your shoppers.” Top snack trends for the coming year include products with added protein, plant-based products, and take-home snacks. Lastly, the company advises retailers to give healthy snacking the space it deserves in-store; create secondary space for healthy snacking; and make a clear distinction between different consumer protein needs (performance, lifestyle, natural, i.e. plant-based). Word of warning: carve out dedicated space in store for healthy snacking, do not mix it in with traditional confectionery.

October 20, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Austin, Texas-based retail grocery chain pinpointed a big trend in snacks for the coming year among its other food and beverage predictions. The retailer sees increasing consumer interest in health and wellness, specifically products that support the immune system, like probiotics, broths and sauerkrauts. Because breakfast will continue big into 2021, look for more pancake mixes, sous vide egg bites, and egg alternatives. Expect coffee-flavored bars, granolas, smoothies, foods with omega-3-rich flaxseeds and chick peas. And the final trend that will impact 2021: meatless meat snacks made from fruits and vegetables, flavored with chili, salt, ginger, and cacao.

CCBA Suspends Acquisitions In Kenya

October 20, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Coca-Cola Beverages Africa (CCBA) has decided to emphasize integration of businesses it has acquired recently so will not make new acquisitions in the local market in the near term. The company is said to be aligning Nairobi Bottlers and Almasi Beverages’ operations to those of the parent company’s systems and policies following its acquisition from Centum Investment Company a year ago. Through its subsidiary, Coca-Cola Sabco East Africa Limited, CCBA acquired 53.9 percent and 27.6 percent of the stake held by Centum at Almasi and Nairobi Bottlers respectively at a value of $200 million. The company says sales and revenue slid by 50 percent for carbonated soft drinks, juice, energy drinks and fuze tea bags because of the pandemic. Government-imposed lockdowns led to disruptions in production, supply chains, and reduced demand for the products.[Image Credit: © Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa]

Innovfood’s Nutrixin Rebrands To Emphasize Its Nutraceutical Character

October 13, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The 2019 Singapore-based immunity product, apple peel essence, was relaunched to strengthen its association to nutraceuticals and downplay it as a fruit juice. In addition, the company rolled out two more functional beverages with cognitive and digestive functions. The company said apple peel essence was unveiled in “an attractive and artistic packaging” that unfortunately “gave the wrong impression to consumers who associated our brand to apple juice.” The product, however, is a nutraceutical containing five times the polyphenol and 100 times more quercetin found in apples. The two new beverages are grape peel essence for metabolic and cognitive functions and orange peel essence for digestive and immunity benefits.

Pretzel Sales Benefit From Pandemic Shopping Trends, But Also From Healthy Halo

October 13, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Market data from industry researcher IRI confirm the huge impact the coronavirus has had on stay-at-home snacking generally, and surprisingly on pretzels, which trailed some other snack categories in previous years. Heading into 2020, dollar sales of pretzels grew as volumes declined, mainly because of price increases. That trend was altered heading into May 2020, however, with dollar sales growing 20 percent. IRI projects that the category will grow 13 percent in the remainder of the year. After a lot of stockpiling, consumers are no longer facing shortages, and have added pretzels – soft and hard, large and bite-size – into their snacking mix as a more healthful alternative. Opportunities to keep pretzel sales growing beyond the pandemic may lie in that perceived healthier halo, IRI says.

Lori's Potato Chips Finds Winning Recipe For THC-Spiked Snacks

October 12, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
It wasn’t long after recreational cannabis was legalized in Washington State in 2012 that consumers began to look for alternatives to smoking pot. They turned to THC-infused edibles, a trend that proved to be a shot-in-the-arm for companies selling sugar-based items like gummies and hard candy. Seattle-based Craft Elixirs, which began by making pot-infused syrups, introduced a potato chip line in 2018, but it didn’t catch on. A reformulation and re-introduction finally got the brand – Lori’s Potato Chips – on track. The new lineup includes Roasted Garlic Chips fried in THC-infused olive oil and a Sweet Potato Chip seasoned with cinnamon, brown sugar, and sea salt. All are vegan, kosher, and made with organic potatoes. One of the benefits of the chips is that they offer THC newbies the option of micro-dosing. A single $7 bag contains 10 milligrams of THC, with roughly 15 chips per bag. Needless to say, demand for all Craft Elixirs products has increased since the pandemic hit.

U.K. Start-Up Small Giants Unveils Snack Crackers Made With Cricket Flour

October 9, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The London-based snack maker says its bite-sized savory crackers made with cricket flour are on a mission: to promote insects as a sustainable source of protein.

Each 40-gram pack of crackers contains nine grams of protein, five grams of fat, are “a source of fiber,” and contain no added sugar. The oven-baked crackers are available in tomato and oregano, turmeric and smoked paprika, and rosemary and thyme flavors. The brand launched in the U.K. under a different name a year ago after raising £150,000 ($195,200) in investment, then recently rebranded. Small Giants will be distributed by Tree of Life in the U.K. distribution and are available direct on its website and on Amazon for an RRP of £1.50 ($1.95).

Chulitos LLC Says Its Low-Cal Tortilla Chips Are Healthy, Sustainable

October 5, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
To achieve that result, the Laredo, Texas-based snack company replaces some of the traditional corn used to make tortilla chips with cactus and bakes it without oil. The technique results in a chip with half the calories (75 total), triple the fiber (six grams), and a lot of micronutrients and antioxidants. The key ingredient is cactus, the company says, “an ancient Aztec superfood” that is said to boost immunity, improve gut health, and reduce inflammation. Chulitos, sold in recycled packaging and made with water-saving ingredients, are available on Amazon and will soon be in the snack aisle of specialty grocery stores.

China’s Dehydrated Vegetable Companies Get A Pandemic Shot In The Arm

October 3, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Thanks to the pandemic, consumers in the U.S., Europe, Japan, and South Korea have increased their snacking. This, in turn, has boosted sales of dehydrated vegetables, a major ingredient in most of the convenience food products. During the first four months of this year, a city in China’s Zhejiang province exported more than 800 metric tons of dehydrated vegetables, up 81.3 percent on a yearly basis. The export value of the products was $2.94 million. Huzhou Fresh Food's dehydrated vegetables were mainly exported to the U.S. and Europe, including dehydrated tomatoes, red peppers, and cabbages to Belgium. Major Chinese snack makers such as Wuhu, Anhui Three Squirrels Electronic Commerce Co Ltd, and Bestore Food Co Ltd, have also benefited from the trend: they have been developing healthier high-quality snacks like fruit and vegetables crunches in recent years.

Innovation – And The Pandemic – Drives Potato Chip Success

October 2, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
An almost overnight change in snacking behavior brought on by the coronavirus pandemic has driven potato chip sales through the roof: up $51 billion for the first quarter of 2020, compared to last year. Innovation in the category with products like kettle-cooked chips has also played a major role in fueling the trend. And producers have responded to consumer preference for healthier snacks by lowering salt and using quality oils with health benefits. Utz’s Boulder Canyon kettle-cooked potato chips, for example, are cooked in healthier oils like avocado, coconut, olive, sunflower, safflower, and rice bran. But flavor is what keeps customers coming back for more. Herr Foods has launched a new Flavor Mix that includes Cheddar and Sour Cream and Onion; Barbecue and Salt and Vinegar; and Red Hot and Honey Barbecue.

A Teen’s Search For Natural Nut Butters Results In A Lucrative Business

October 2, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
A 15-year-old with a fondness for peanut butter who wanted to do something about her weight problem started looking closely at ingredient labels. The “ton of artificial ingredients” were a turn-off, so she began experimenting in her family’s kitchen with cashews, coconut, honey, almond, dates and pecans to create her own all-natural nut butters. From the kitchen to farmer's markets, to grocery store shelves, and eventually online, Abby Kircher’s business – Abby’s Better Nut Butter – has grown tenfold in the past five years, moving its operations into a manufacturing facility in 2018 and cultivating a huge online following with more than $400,000 in ecommerce sales since the beginning of the year. In addition to its 11 nut butters, the North Carolina-based company has launched a line of grab-and-go Nut Butter Snack Bites that come in four flavors.

Pretzels Offer A Good Balance Between Indulgence And Better-For-You, IRI Says

September 29, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Analysts at IRI advise pretzel bakers that shoppers looking for a balance between indulgent and better-for-you snacks, especially during the pandemic, can find that balance in pretzels, for several reasons. Pretzel snacks often feature savory and higher-protein doughs that fit well in several trending diets, including low-sugar, high-protein, and plant-based diets. As bakers struggle with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, they can implement several tactics to drive growth for the category and their own sales. Highlighting health and wellbeing claims on snack packaging is a good place to start. They can also share at-home consumption ideas with consumers that will engage and excite them with options for versatile shelf stable and frozen pretzels. Lastly, bakers should adapt prices and sizes “to ensure a good mix, price and value in conjunction with private label across channels to maximize foot and click traffic as well as sales,” said IRI analyst Sally Lyons Wyatt.[Image Credit: © Couleur from Pixabay]

Relaxing Snacks: A Trend Waiting To Happen?

September 29, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The fact that Americans are sleeping poorly in 2020 and snacking more presents a marketing opportunity for snack makers who develop snacks formulated for better sleeping. More than 85 percent of Americans snack between dinner and bed time, often consuming calorie-packed treats that impair and disrupt sleep. Companies said to be toying with the idea of introducing “Better-for-Sleep” snacks, according to Financial News Media, include PepsiCo, Inc., Nestlé S.A., Mondelēz International, Inc., and Kellogg Company. An early entry into the space is NightFood Holdings, Inc. (Tarrytown, N.Y.), an emerging brand that markets ice cream formulated for relaxation and better sleep.[Image Credit: © Nightfood]

South Korean Government Promotes Its Seaweed Industry

September 28, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries is promoting a national quality standard, dubbed K-FISH, that must be followed by companies producing, selling, and exporting seaweed-based foods, including snacks. Korea’s dried seaweed exports – edible seaweed or laver (kim in Korean) – soared 50.3 percent in 2017. Seaweed, produced from algae, can be processed into a wide range of products. Seaweed snacks are slowly penetrating the global market with varieties such as a seaweed-fish meat combo and seaweed with ingredients like coconut, grains, and anchovy. The large variety of Korean seaweed snacks has yet to be discovered by foreign consumers, according to the Korean government.[Image Credit: © National Federation of Fisheries Cooperatives]

Australian Chickpea Farmers See Growth Potential In Chickpea Snacks

September 28, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
More than 95 percent of Australia’s chickpea crop is exported overseas, but there is growing demand in the country for legume products as a healthy protein source. With that in mind, the West Australia farming cooperative Ord River District Coop has teamed up with food wholesaler Gourmet & More (Perth) to create and distribute the state's first locally grown chickpea snack range. Following three years of university research and several consumer studies, ORDCO has settled on a suite of gluten-free, high-protein products including sweet and savory roasted chickpea snacks, ready-to-eat pre-cooked chickpea pouches, and chickpea flour.[Image Credit: © Alex Dante frim Pixabay]

Kelp-Based Snacks From 12 Tides Offer Health, Sustainability Benefits

September 25, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Another sign of the ascension of kelp (seaweed) as a healthful component of snacks is the line of organic seaweed puffed snacks from San Francisco-based start-up 12 Tides. The roasted, tissue-thin snacks, available in sea salt, chili, and “everything seasoning” flavors, are made from sustainably harvested North American kelp, which is nutrient dense and supports ocean restoration, according to the company. Kelp can grow up to 18 inches in a day, efficiently absorbing a large amount of carbon from the ocean. The company noted that kelp is a zero-input crop requiring no fertilizers, no fresh water, and no arable land. The kelp is also a different species from the Asian nori seaweed, which has a fishier flavor. “We geared the flavor profile and the texture … toward a mainstream audience and are positioning ourselves as a better-for-you alternative to traditional salty snacks like potato chips,” said founder Patrick Schnettler.[Image Credit: © 12 Tides]

Pandemic Gives Rise To Behaviors That Offer Snack Marketing Opportunities

September 23, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The global onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic has convinced many consumers to commit to staying healthy. Market watchers say forward-looking bakery and snack producers can take advantage of that trend, and related sub-trends, by introducing products that balance consumer health concerns with affordability. Among the emerging concerns and trends that snack makers should focus on are: gut health and immune function; plant-based nutrition; weight management and metabolic health; combatting feelings of anxiety and stress with indulgent foods that also offer good nutrition; increasing interest in tailored, personalized nutrition; and increasing interest in value-based shopping, including a growing demand for basic pantry staples, stimulating trade-downs to private labels, and increasing traffic to value retailers.[Image Credit: © Free-Photos from Pixabay]

September 23, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Denver-based maker of snack crisps announced the launch of a redesigned website along with a new direct-to-consumer online platform.

BFY Snack Formulators Have A Natural Ally In Almonds

September 22, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Health-conscious consumers increasingly opt for snacks that offer nutritional benefits, full transparency, and are “free from” ingredients perceived to be either useless or harmful. So, snack developers are innovating with a focus on natural, familiar ingredients that also offer nutritional benefits; One of these is almonds, which deliver essential nutrients that may be hard to come by in a total plant-based diet, including protein and calcium. In addition, most consumers think of snacks as an indulgence, so mouthfeel and flavor are important. A crunchy ingredient like almonds complements products with softer textures, and roasted almonds pair well with sea salt or high cacao chocolate to add a more premium product positioning. Market data show that almonds continue to be the leading nut used in global new product introductions, with particularly strong growth in the bakery, snack, and confectionery categories.[Image Credit: © Steve Buissinne from Pixabay]

Mondelez Hopes To Extend Its Snack Line With Acquisitions Of Healthy Snack Companies

September 21, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
As consumers watch their weight, and investors and governments urge action on obesity, the $81 billion Ill.-based maker of Oreo cookies, Cadbury chocolate, and Ritz crackers, is looking to acquire healthier snack brands. The company has made healthy snacks a priority as it diverts billions of dollars’ worth of investments in coffee companies JDE Peet’s and Keurig Dr Pepper. CEO Dirk Van de Put criticized increasingly popular sugar taxes in an interview with the Financial Times, saying they were overly “restrictive” to consumers and would limit the potential for his company to invest. [Image Credit: © Mondelēz International]
