Mondelēz-Grenade Deal: Another Sign Of Big Chocolate’s Spread Into Healthy Snacks

April 1, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
In 2019, Mondelēz passed up a chance to buy U.K. protein snack bar brand Grenade. But, late last month, and following other major Big Chocolate acquisitions of healthy snack companies like KIND (Mars) and Eat Natural (Ferro), Mondelēz bought a majority interest in Grenade for £200 million ($276 million). Why the reversal? According to a Rothschild analyst, in two years Grenade grew dramatically and moved from a purely sports nutrition brand to the mainstream, where it has become a category leader. Under Mondelēz, Grenade has the potential to grow much more, and continue to take share away from traditional chocolate countline bars. Another observer noted the “perfect timing” of the deal: Grenade was reaching a saturation point in the U.K., and Mondelēz can now ramp up distribution worldwide. A significant positive sign for Mondelēz was the fact that Grenade sold well during the pandemic, thanks to its entrenched ecommerce audience.

Utz Brands Says Its Healthier Potato Chips Are Catching On

March 31, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Hanover, Pa.-based snack company has been rebranding and developing Boulder Canyon potato chips since it acquired the brand four years ago. The company says the work is paying off, as more shoppers choose snacks with healthier ingredients, such as the avocado oil used to cook the Boulder Canyon chips. Utz's lineup of healthy snacks includes Veggie Chips, Half Naked Popcorn, and potato chips cooked in olive oil and avocado oil. In its recent earnings report, the company reported a “significant” increase in new buyers and higher repeat-purchase rates over the past year. Utz plans to grow sales and reach new customers in 2021 by increasing its digital advertising spend by 60 percent and potentially more, CEO Dylan Lissette told CNBC. Social media and digital ads do well in contrast to having one commercial that runs through the year “and realizing it didn't really give you what you needed.”

Consumers Are Okay With Pricier Healthy Foods

March 30, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Despite complaints from organizations like the Ford Foundation that nutritious food is more expensive than junk food, consumers are finding enough incentives to include pricier healthy snacks in their diets. COVID concerns were one such incentive last year. At a recent U.K. nutrition conference, a Mars Edge exec said consumers are increasingly exploring new products in the health and wellness space. The U.K. marketing chief for KIND said consumers are linking healthier choices with higher prices. “Obviously,” John McManus said, “I’d like 15 million other consumers to make that choice as well. But we are seeing a rise in that and it’s a clear link that they are making.”  And anyway, Jean-Christophe Flatin noted, prices that now hover above conventional snacking products will be moving more into the mainstream.

Sound Nutrition Uses Premium Ingredients – And Ultrasonics – To Create Healthy Snacks

March 30, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The two-year-old Los Angeles-based snack company says its ultrasonic – or high-frequency, low-amplitude – sound waves gently vibrate high-quality ingredients, such as whole egg crystals and real cacao, into the snacks' shape and form in a fraction of a second without the use of high heat, to preserve the nutritional integrity of the snack. The result is Sound Bites, oval-shaped snacks made with premium ingredients that “promote wellness through functional snacking.” The company says the benefits include: satiation without lethargy; a higher level of mental clarity; sustained physical energy; and confidence in making a nutritious snacking choice. Sound Bites are available in four flavors (Vanilla Lime, Coconut Surprise, Chocolate Raspberry, Mocha), two oval-shaped bites per pack (30 g each bite), 12 packs in a case for $72.

Study Finds Brits Are Over-Eating Before Lunch

March 27, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
A recent study by British protein oat bar maker Grenade Reload found that many Britons are eating 1,406 calories in a typical morning – almost all of their daily calorie allowance before lunch. In fact, according to the survey, the tradition of "elevenses" – eating a snack at 11 a.m. – has made a comeback in recent times: 72 percent said they now eat a snack at that time every day. Thirty-eight percent said they prefer biscuits (cookies) with a cup of tea; 36 percent choose packets of crisps (chips); 35 percent choose chocolate, while 15 percent eat a cheese toastie (grilled cheese) as their pre-lunch snack. But a disturbing finding had to do with perceived calories of breakfast items: respondents estimated a full English breakfast (two rashers of bacon, two fried eggs, two sausages, slice of buttered toast and beans) to be 513 calories. In fact, it contains about 950 calories.

Women’s Health Mag Lists 15 Cereals Approved For Vegans

March 26, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Vegans need to be careful when shopping for breakfast cereals because animal-based ingredients like milk proteins and sweeteners like honey can easily sneak into favorites, A nutritionist warns, for example, that white sugar might also be a no-no because the refining process may use bone char, a non-vegan animal product. And cereals can be fortified with nutrients like vitamin D3 that may be derived from the sheep-based product lanolin. That said, here are a few of the 15 breakfast cereals approved for vegans: Fiber One Original Bran, Bob's Red Mill Muesli Cereal, Purely Elizabeth Ancient Grain Granola, Three Wishes Grain-Free, Plant-Based Honey Cereal, One Degree Cereal Ancient Maize Flakes, Kashi GO Peanut Butter Crunch, McCann's Irish Traditional Steel Cut Oatmeal, and Food For Life Ezekiel 4:9 Organic Sprouted Grain Cereal.

Mondelēz Buys Majority Stake In Sports Nutrition Firm Grenade

March 23, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Chicago-based snacks company’s investment in the U.K. sports-nutrition business is a step further into the healthier foods segment, but it may prove “problematic.” “Mondelēz is continuing to try to tap into the increased desire among a growing number of consumers to buy better-for-you products,” writes Just-Food editor Andy Coyne, “a trend underway before COVID-19 but which has been exacerbated by a renewed interest in health and wellness linked to the virus.” Mondelēz reportedly paid about $277 million for Grenade, which markets better-for-you snacks, including high-protein, low-sugar bars, shakes, and drinks targeting the physically active. Mondelēz suggests the purchase of a "significant majority interest" in Grenade "enables expansion in broader snacking and fast-growing well-being segments." But some analysts suggest the investment may prove difficult for Mondelēz. Said one observer: "The Grenade branding is likely problematic for [Mondelēz] rather than complementary, especially if they want to build big in the U.S.”

University In Peru Develops Variety Of Purple Corn For Popcorn

March 19, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Scientists at the Peruvian Universidad Nacional Agraria La Molina (UNALM), using traditional genetic improvement technology and modern double haploids (DH) technology, have developed a new variety of purple corn for popcorn that offers nutraceutical properties. Corn is rich in starch, carbohydrates, proteins, fibers, and vitamins, and purple corn adds anthocyanins with antioxidant properties. Anthocyanins are said to help lower blood pressure, contribute to the treatment of diabetes and obesity, and help prevent cardiovascular disease. Scientists at the university are conducting tests of the hybrid purple corn kernels to determine its suitability for popcorn, i.e., how much it bursts, its color, its performance, and other positive characteristics.

Israel Approves BioHarvest Sciences’ Request To Add Resveratrol To Snack Bars

March 18, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Ministry of Health in Israel has approved the Canadian snack company’s (Vancouver, B.C.) request to include the Vinea (piceid resveratrol) proprietary red grape cell product in a health snack bar, the first approval for piceid resveratrol as a functional food in Israel. The snack bar will be launched in Israel in Q2/2021, and early in 2022 in the U.S. Vinea is already considered both a functional food and a dietary supplement in the U.S.; the company's overall forecast for U.S. sales of the Vinea dietary supplement will be updated soon after the U.S. launch of Vinea in May 2021. Through its BioFarming technology, BioHarvest can produce piceid resveratrol at industrial scale in a way that is non-GMO, maintains the natural structure of the compound, and has superior solubility, bioavailability, and efficacy versus other forms of resveratrol.

Eat Real To Relaunch In Effort To Produce Less Salty Snacks

March 17, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The U.K.-based healthier snacking brand is relaunching with a new look and flavors in a bid to be a “fully non-HFSS” (high in fat, sugar or salt) brand. Two new flavors of its Hummus Chips  – Sea Salt & Balsamic Vinegar, and Barbecue – will roll out alongside reformulations. Its Sea Salt and Tomato & Basil Hummus Chips will be reformulated, reducing their salt content by more than half. The brand will get a packaging makeover this summer designed to “highlight the brand’s use of real, natural ingredients” alongside a slew of new launches and recipe changes.

Haldiram Snacks Hopes To “Indianize” Oats, Granola For Local Consumers

March 15, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Indian sweets, snacks, and restaurant company, which makes roasted channa (chickpeas), roasted peanuts, diet murmura (puffed rice) and bhel (puffed rice and vegetables), and other snacks, has entered into a 51:49 joint venture with South African health food company Futurelife. The JV is launching products such as granola, protein powders, and oats. But because Indian consumers tend to prioritize flavor over health, the company is working closely with Haldiram's to get a sense of flavor profiles that would be more attractive to the Indian consumer. The Idea is to “Indianize” products like oats and granola, in much the same way Haldiram’s was able to “Indianize” a western product like potato chips.

Snack Makers Cater To Consumer Demands For New Flavors, Nutrition Density

March 14, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Snack manufacturers have been happy to meet the demands of consumers and grocery retailers looking for “alternative” better-for-you snacks in a variety of new flavors. Plant-based snacks, for example, while still a small segment of snack sales, are a significant source of growth in the category, in fact outpacing traditional snacks. According to a Hartman Group report on shopper trends in the era of COVID-19, 44 percent of consumers say they are eating healthier during the pandemic. And nearly half of all meal occasions are snacking occasions. PopCorners, which markets that brand as well as gluten-free air-popped soybean and cassava-based crisps, believes that the better-for-you snack category is here to stay and is only increasing in demand. PepsiCo, which acquired PopCorners as well as Bare Snacks, maker of baked fruit and veggie chips, recently revealed a joint venture with El Segundo, Calif.-based meat-substitute manufacturer Beyond Meat Inc., a move that could lead to even more action in the segment.

Colombian Banana Snacks Brand Reaches U.K., Czech Republic, UAE

March 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Loro Crisps, banana snacks made with bananas grown in Colombia, have been exported since November 2020 to the Czech Republic, the U.K., and the United Arab Emirates. The two Colombian entrepreneurs who created the snacks say their goal was to at least partially replace potato chips in U.K. supermarkets with a snack that featured “a Latin flavor.” The entrepreneurs were supported in their efforts to bring a healthy, vegetarian, and gluten-free snack to the rest of the world by ProColombia, which helped them find a supplier in the Urabá Antioqueño region that meets the standards required for export. The founders expect their Loro Crisps will soon reach Japan, and within five years, Canada, Spain, and Ireland. Future plans include making snacks with cassava or chontaduro (peach palm).

Fraternal Entrepreneurs Launch Popcorn Company With A Charitable Twist

March 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Former fast-food franchisees Rudi and Aaron Sinykin wanted to escape the restrictive corporate environment and get involved in a fun concept with a charity component. The result was the launch of Tempe, Ariz.-based Kettle Heroes Artisan Popcorn, a company that makes small batch, artisan popcorn, kettle corn, and caramel corn in eight flavors with 100 percent all-natural, Non-GMO Project-verified, certified gluten-free, nut-free, and kosher-certified ingredients. The prickly pear kettle corn, for example, uses real prickly pear ground into a fine powder; real chiles give the Hatch green chile cheddar popcorn an authentic flavor. The company's charity side, meanwhile, is a key ingredient in its surging popularity. Since 2013, Kettle Heroes has donated more than $30,000 to various causes, nonprofits, and organizations. The global ready-to-eat popcorn market is expected to reach $6.22 billion by 2026.

Mondelēz Venture Unit Joins Group Dedicated To The “Upcycled Economy”

March 11, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
SnackFutures, the Mondelēz International, Inc. innovation and venture hub has joined the Upcycled Food Association (UFA), a nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing food waste by growing the upcycled economy. SnackFutures, created in 2018 with a focus on well-being snacks, the unit has made planet-first innovation a pillar of its portfolio strategy. The first two brands launched by SnackFutures were CaPao, which upcycles parts of the cacao fruit into plant-based snacks, and Dirt Kitchen Snacks, made from produce that would normally become on-farm waste due to surplus, ripeness, or bruising. The UFA, which has established a standard definition of upcycled foods, also created the Upcycled Certification Program, which allows brands and businesses to apply for a third-party certification of ingredients and products. It will launch later this year.

U.K.’s “Action On Salt” Calls For Honest Labeling Of “Healthy” Snacks

March 9, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
A group of British scientists focusing on preventive medicine and the unhealthy effects of sodium over-consumption has released new data showing that some seemingly “healthy” snacks are in fact saltier than the concentration of seawater and could be sabotaging consumers’ health. A survey of new products in the U.K. found, for example, that one 45-gram serving of either Love Corn Salt Vinegar – advertised as vegan, gluten-free, Non GMO Project Verified, and kosher – or Love Corn Habanero Chilli contains more salt than 3.5 bags of Walkers Ready Salted crisps. Action on Salt, housed at Queen Mary University (London), said more than half of “healthy” snacks are considered a high fat, salt and/or sugar (HFSS) food, but the majority do not display color-coded labeling on the front of packages. The group calls for restrictions on the use of misleading nutrition claims on foods deemed high in fat, salt and sugar, and urges the British government to appoint a successor to Public Health England to help bring down salt levels across all foods.

Pandemic Effects Cause Peeled Snacks To Go Belly Up

March 4, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Rhode Island-based healthy snack manufacturer has filed for bankruptcy, citing a decline in sales in two of its most important sales channels caused by the coronavirus pandemic, according to The Wall Street Journal. The company told the bankruptcy court in Wilmington, Del., that it has experienced a substantial sales decline because airports and schools have either been closed during the pandemic or are operating with capacity restrictions. The company sold gluten-free, vegan, kosher, grain-free, and paleo-friendly snacks, including dried fruits, apple clusters, pea crisps, and puffs.

Survey Sheds Light On Snack Accidents – Or “Snackccidents”

March 3, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
A survey of 2,000 Americans conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Chomps, a Naples, Fla.-based maker of beef, turkey, and venison meat sticks, has found that the average American experiences 416 “snackccidents” a year. Fifty-seven percent of respondents admitted that they'd accidentally eaten a full-sized bag of snacks in one sitting. Forty-five percent admitted eating a full meal composed entirely of snacks, when they'd only intended to eat a single snack. Thirty-seven percent said they’d purchased a snack that they later realized contained ingredients that weren't exactly healthy. But “happy 'snackccidents'” were fairly common, according to the survey: 66 percent of respondents confirmed they'd stumbled accidentally upon a new snack they enjoyed. And lastly, and happily for snack makers, fifty-six percent of respondents agreed that, when it comes to snacks, they have little to no self-control.
