U.K.’s Burts Snacks’ Sales Unimpeded By Pandemic

September 14, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Plymouth-based maker of crisps and popcorn posted a $9.7 million hike in sales in 2020 to a total of $79.4 million, making it “the U.K.’s fastest growing independent “snacking” company, despite the COVID pandemic.” Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization – a measure of profitability – were $3.6 million for 2020, up from $1.4 million in 2019. The company is optimistic about 2021 sales in the U.K., and is developing several new export markets that it says are “a key pillar in our overall strategy.”

Mintel Expert Advises Snack Makers On Flavor And Ingredient Experimentation

September 14, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Snack makers experimenting with flavors in hopes of broadening snack appeal should pair an unusual one, such as baobab or guajillo chili, with a familiar format, such as tortilla chips, according to Lynn Dornblaser of Mintel. Or, if experimenting with snack chip ingredients, they should try an unconventional base ingredient, such as seaweed or dried portobello mushrooms, combined with cheddar, barbecue, or another popular seasoning. Other snack innovation insights Dornblaser shared with SNAXPO21 attendees: be sure the name lives up to the ingredients – a cayenne pepper snack, for example, better be spicy; if concerned about delivering a healthy snack use chickpeas or plantains and highlight their better-for-you benefits; and experiment with flavors on more receptive younger consumers.

Dirt Kitchen Tests Binder-Free Snack Technology

September 14, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Mondelēz International brand is testing a better-for-you snack bar created using a mechanical pressure and ultrasound technology developed by an Israeli company. Torr FoodTech’s technology combines different ingredients without using binders or added sugar, instead applying mechanical pressure and ultrasound energy to create multi-textures and sensorial taste profiles not found in a typical snack bar.  Dirt Kitchen so far has focused on chip-like snacks made of vegetables like tomatoes, zucchini, and green beans. The companies plan to roll out four flavors – tomato, raisin and black pepper; apricot, beets and pumpkin seeds; almond, raisin and carrot; and apple, cinnamon and carrot – in about 50 of the few hundred stores that carry Dirt Kitchen products, and on the brand's website.

Campbell Soup’s Snack Unit Bets Heavily On Innovation

September 7, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The company’s snack business, which reported a five percent increase in net sales during the 12 months ending in August of last year, benefited from the stay-at-home lifestyle created by the pandemic. But the company is not resting on its laurels. When research found that spicy was the most requested Goldfish flavor, the company partnered with Frank's RedHot to create a limited-edition hot-sauce Goldfish cracker. The flavor takes the snack beyond the traditional kids/parents market into an older consumer demographic. As to marketing, the company is considering different channels and platforms, like Twitch, Hulu, and TikTok.

Scion Of Singapore Snack Firm Is Revitalizing Her Family’s Products, Image

September 2, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Esther Loo, the third-generation scion and current head of marketing of the Tai Sun brand of nuts and chips, was well aware that the company’s outdated image needed an overhaul. Market research told her that branding – not product quality – was the root of the problem: packaging was a mess, and “there was no real formatting for the brand as a whole.” What’s more, younger consumers really didn’t know about the products, and therefore were not buying them. Loo launched a repositioning campaign, complete with brand bibles and product segmentation. Tai Sun’s current portfolio now includes brands like Nature’s Wonders, Treatz, UCA, and more. Nature’s Wonders will be rolling out new nuts and mixes, and Treatz will receive a significant revamp. And Loo wants to convey to the public – using social media etc. – that healthy snacks such as pecans and macadamias, often thought of as premium nuts, are not necessarily out of reach.

Potato Chips Starting To Disappear From Office Vending machines In U,K,

September 1, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Suppliers of office vending machine snacks in the U.K. are substituting products with longer shelf life, thanks to a dearth of snacking office workers. According to reports, traditional fried potato chips (crisps) are disappearing from vending machines, replaced by crackers such as Mini Cheddars that can last twice as long. Because of a slowdown in potato chips turnover, they go stale in the machines. "We would hope this time next year we would start to see 2019 levels of business," said David Llewellyn, chief executive of the Automatic Vending Association, although expectations are that British workplaces will remain emptier over the next year.

FSSAI”s Approach To Healthier Snacks And Sweets Is Two-Pronged

August 31, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Eat Right Movement of the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India, which originally focused on reducing sugars, sodium, and saturated fats in snacks and candy, is now promoting immunity boosting ingredients. The relatively recent emphasis emerged during the pandemic, and now India’s food companies are adding healthy ingredients such as whole grains, vegetables, and micronutrients to their products, including children's foods. An example is Lil' Goodness, a children’s food and nutrition brand that is targeting deficiencies of vitamins B, C, D, zinc, calcium, Iron, protein, as well as an excess of unhealthy fats and carbs. The company’s product lines include savory snacks (multigrain puffs, veggie crackers made with real veggies) and sweet snacks such as prebiotic chocolates.

The Evolving Consumer Behaviors Driving Food And Beverage Innovation

August 27, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Food processing corporation Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) has identified five key consumer health and wellness trends that are driving innovation and creating opportunities for food, beverage, and supplement companies. At the root of the evolving trends in health and wellness is the pandemic, which has transformed the way consumers perceive holistic health and well-being. The key trends are: renewed motivation to improve individual health and wellness; emergence of a holistic approach to managing the mind-body connection; the rise of tailored nutrition that supports personal health and wellness goals; increased emphasis on a proactive perspective on immunity; and the emergence of “purposeful indulgence” as the new “permissible indulgence.” “Consumer focus on sustaining health and wellness through nutrition may likely become an enduring behavioral change, even after the global pandemic is over,” ADM says.

New Kerry Microapp Will Help Private Labels Fine-Tune Snack Marketing

August 26, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Irish taste and nutrition company’s research shows there are ample opportunities in the snack marketplace for grocery and private retail labels to plant their product flags. The company created what it says is an “easy-to-navigate online microapp” designed to provide information about its research results and identify the opportunities shaping the private label snacks space. The “Seizing the Private Label Snack Category” microapp allows users to explore product packaging examples and reveals the claims and ingredients that resonate with various consumer types. Insights related specifically to snacks provide direct guidance on tackling snack product innovation. For example, private label consumers comprise two key groups: “adventure seekers” (novel flavors) and “practical traditionalists” (tried-and-true flavors).

Market For Healthy Functional Snacks Broadens

August 24, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The elderly and “ultra-health-conscious” are no longer the only drivers of demand for healthy functional snacks, according to a recent Glanbia Nutritionals-sponsored survey of 2,001 British consumers. With post-pandemic healthy eating on the rise, and better nutritional information available to all consumers, the demand for the ultimate functional snacks increasing among a wider array of snack buyers. Key data from the survey: younger generations (in particular, 25-34-year-olds) demand high-protein snacks; 43 percent of Baby Boomers prefer foods to be made with simple, real ingredients; 43 percent of Gen Z prefer to have something labelled as “no preservatives, artificial ingredients, high fructose corn syrup, or trans fats;” and “conscious indulgence” is on the rise, with healthy, clean label chocolate fudge brownies and peanut butter cups “the top two preferred flavors.”

British Pub Snack Preferences Swing Toward – Olives And Halloumi Fries?

August 22, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
A study by a British mobile app for order table service found that sales of traditional pub snacks have plummeted as consumers turned to healthier eats since the start of the pandemic. According to an analysis of 1.5 million pub orders by the ServedUp app, sales of pickled onions, salted peanuts, Mini Cheddars, and prawn cocktail crisps have sagged while sales of olives, halloumi fries, cashews, and popcorn have soared. Purchase of healthier baked crisps rose by 23 percent compared to before the pandemic, cashew nuts by 20 percent, popcorn by 12 percent, gourmet flavored crisps by 16 percent, and olives by eight percent.

Popularity Of Protein-Based Foods And Beverages Persists

August 20, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
An executive at Irish taste and nutrition company Kerry says foods naturally rich in protein (e.g., yogurt) as well as foods that have been fortified with protein continue to sell well. New protein-based product launches increased 12 percent from 2018 to 2020. Among the trends driving the popularity of protein: heightened focus on nutrition and health during the pandemic; increased sensitivity to sustainability, climate change, and the environment; increased popularity of protein foods among mainstream consumers; and increased development of new protein sources. The demand for high protein snacks has significantly increased, driven by consumers seeking “better for you” convenient snacks. A lot of innovation has focused on clean-label snack formulations, with natural claims important in the protein bar category.

General Mills Tells Parents: Cereals Do Deliver A Healthy Breakfast

August 17, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
With breakfast cereal sales declining steadily in recent years – though growth projections have been rosier lately, thanks to the impact of the pandemic – the Battle Creek, Mich.-based company surveyed parents and found that many feel guilty about feeding their kids breakfast cereals thinking they’re sort of a nutritional cop out. In fact, the company says, nutrient-dense eating can and should include foods – i.e., breakfast cereals – that are accessible and affordable to all. “In reality, a bowl of cereal is hard to beat when it comes to nutrient density.” Especially, the company says, a bowl of one of the nutrient-dense options from General Mills Big G Cereals: Cheerios, Fiber One, Chex, etc. Guilt-free parenting can be easy after all.

Environmental Benefits Of Upcycling Are Real – And The Snacks Are Good, Too

August 17, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Companies that produce upcycled snacks – made with food production by-products otherwise bound for landfills – claim they’re helping the environment by reducing food waste and creating products with less power, water, and other carbon-heavy resources. Nutritionist and writer Ariane Resnick says her research found the claims mostly true. In the process, she discovered a few upcycled snacks and food products that she really liked. Among these are: CaPao’s fruit and nut bites made from cacao fruit left over after chocolate processing; Fast Company’s high-fiber, gluten-free flours, baking mixes. and snacks made with the by-products of plant-based milk processing; Renewal Mill’s okara flour made from the leftovers from soy milk production; and Pulp Pantry’s fiber-rich chips made from the pulp left over after fruits and vegetables are juiced.

“Click For Snack Delivery” Remains Strong Trend As Pandemic Wanes

August 17, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
A report from PepsiCo and Chinese on-demand delivery and retail platform Dada Group acknowledges growth in ecommerce but says the pandemic has been the real catalyst in driving home delivery sales. That trend is still strong: the number of Chinese consumers preferring to “click” to have goods delivered directly to their home continues to grow, creating real opportunities for retailers and brand owners to attract new customers, as well as repeated orders. Snacks in particular are enjoying a real boost through ecommerce, with JDDJ reporting a 91 percent growth of snack sales in 2020. Snack buyers come from all channels, all scenarios, and all regions. And their tastes range from everyday treats to the most eclectic, like mango-flavored chocolate and sauerkraut-flavored potato chips.

British Company Boundless Raises Cash, Launches Sorghum Snacks

August 17, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The four-year-old U.K.-based “activated” snacking brand raised $1.4 million from angel investors and others to expand its healthy snacks business, which includes a range of high-protein, gluten-free nut and seed mixes. The company’s FAB (flood, activate, bake) method involves soaking the nuts and seeds in salt water to kick-start germination before “activating” them by drawing out hard-to-digest phytic acid. The products are then baked at a low temperature. This month the company will debut two new snacks made from sprouted sorghum. The new funding will be spent primarily on overseas marketing, working on in-store sampling and virtual trade shows, and social media campaigns.

Breakfast Cereals Tick A Lot Of Boxes As They Cater To Consumer Preferences

August 16, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The growth of non-cereal breakfast categories – frozen, refrigerated, bagels, pastry/doughnuts, etc. – is outpacing the growth of cereals. But a number of seemingly conflicting benefits – cost-effectiveness, functional health, better-for-you, clean label, indulgence, nostalgia – could fuel category growth during the coming year. Yes, consumers are more motivated to try a new cereal with claims of reduced sugar, added protein, added fiber, and nutrient-dense ingredients. However, industry watchers say there’s still room for some indulgence in the category – think Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies cereal, Post’s Dunkin-inspired cereals, General Mills’ Dunkaroos Cereal, and Kellogg’s Special K Dipped Chocolatey Almond. A key factor driving their success is familiarity of flavors that hark back to their childhood breakfast tables.

Sales Of Snacks Are Up, But Watch The Impact Of The Delta Variant

August 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Sales of low-calorie, diet, and convenience foods have started to rise as vaccinations have slowly increased, more restaurants and bars are operating at greater capacity, and workers are heading back to their offices.
