Chinese Consumers Spending More On Healthful Snacks

July 22, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Thanks largely to the stay-at-home lifestyle enforced by the COVID-19 pandemic, China's snack market is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years with a major trend toward fresh and healthful food, according to Beijing-based think tank EO Intelligence. The sales volume of China's snack market will reach three trillion yuan ($429 billion) in 2020 and surpass four trillion yuan ($572 billion) in 2025. Seventy-one percent of survey participants said snacks are important to their physical and psychological health; and more than 85 percent of snack-loving Millennials said freshness and healthful qualities are priorities in choosing snacks. Another report by U.K.-based Barclays Bank said Generation Z consumers pay a lot of attention to snack nutrition and prefer plant food.[Image Credit: © Nestlé]

Coca-Cola Sees Some Financial Improvement In 2nd Quarter

July 21, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
After a “most challenging” first quarter marked by a 28 percent pandemic-caused sales decline, Coca-Cola said second quarter soda demand improved, a fact reflected in adjusted revenue of $7.18 billion, largely in line with analyst estimates. Demand for Coca-Cola drinks was battered by the closings of restaurants, theaters, and sports venues. Unit case volume trends, a key demand indicator, improved from a 25 percent drop in April to a 10 percent drop in June as lockdowns eased. For the June quarter, volume sales declined 16 percent, with flagship Coca-Cola falling seven percent and sparkling soft drinks dropping 12 percent. Unit volume of teas and coffees slid 31 percent, largely because of the temporary closure of Costa Coffee stores in Western Europe.[Image Credit: © The Coca-Cola Company]

Goodmills Innovation Develops Snack Ingredient That Promotes Healthy Immune System

July 21, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The wheat germ concentrate introduced by German joint venture GoodMills Innovation, allows bakery and snack producers to capitalize on consumer demand for holistic wellbeing. SpermidinEVO is rich in spermidine, a polyamine compound found in ribosomes and living tissues that supports the self-cleaning process (autophagy) in cells and is linked to a healthy immune system. During autophagy, old and superfluous cell components, as well as harmful invaders such as viruses, are broken down and recycled. SpermidinEVO also contains folic acid and vitamin E, considered to be a classic anti-aging ingredient. GoodMills Innovation (Hamburg, Germany) is a joint venture between European milling enterprise, the GoodMills Group, and Danish food emulsifier and stabilizer manufacturer Palsgaard[Image Credit: © Shutterbug75 from Pixabay]

Animal Skin Snacks Hope To Benefit From BFY Food, And Keto Diet, Trends

July 12, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Fried chicken skins are a popular snack in the Japan and Southeast Asia. But will consumption of edible animal skins – beyond pork rinds, that is – ever catch on in the U.S.?  Several companies are betting on just that, and on the hunch that Americans are becoming more conscious of the sources and health factors of their food. Los Angeles-based Goodfish, launched during the rise of the pandemic and dependent on DTC online sales, sells fried wild Alaskan sockeye salmon skins at $3 for a 1/2-ounce pack. Available in chili lime, spicy BBQ, and sea salt flavors, Goodfish skins contain seven grams of protein, marine collagen, omega-3 fatty acids, and zero carbs. The fried chicken skin snack Flock (Naked Market, San Francisco) markets itself as keto-friendly, high-protein, and low-carb. The keto trend has also benefited a more traditional “animal skin” snack: in 2018, pork rinds saw a 49 percent increase in dollar sales, according to IRI.[Image Credit: © Goodfish]

Annies Reports Boost In Sales After Partnering With U.S. Subscription Food Firm

July 8, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The New Zealand-based snack maker shifted its business model and marketing strategy in response to the COVID-19 crisis and is now enjoying a million-dollar revenue turnaround. Annies saw its retail fruit bar and snack sales sputter early in the pandemic as consumers stayed home. The company then struck a deal with California-based subscription food box company Imperfect Foods in February. Annies sends products to Imperfect Foods under a private label, and puts its own branding on products delivered in a weekly food box. The U.S. is Annies' fastest-growing market: the company, owned by Māori food and beverage producer Kono, expects a 420 percent growth rate in the current financial year. [Image Credit: © Annies]

Food Writer Emily Elyse Miller Launches “Socially Responsible” Cereal Brand OffLimits

July 7, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
New York-based Miller, author of “Breakfast: The Cookbook,” is on a mission to take down the sexist “patriarchy” that dominates the breakfast cereal industry. That includes the slew of male cereal mascots like Tony the Tiger, the Lucky Charms leprechaun, Count Chocula, and Trix’s Silly Rabbit. Launching in two flavors (coffee & cocoa and vanilla & pandan), Dash and Zombie are represented by two “emotionally unstable cartoon characters” named Dash (a female) and Zombie. Miller says she is also reinventing the concept of cereal box toys, with “a gamified, arcade-style experience where consumers can redeem points collected from cereal purchases for unique merchandise.” [Image Credit: © Offlimits]

Tasty, Surprising, Nutritious – And Ho-Hum: A Close Look At Snack Subscriptions

July 7, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Snack subscription services deliver a wide variety of treats to the front door – kettle corn, shrimp crackers, Japanese candy, etc. – in food styles like paleo, gluten-free, keto, vegan, raw, high-protein, and kosher. A pandemic-induced spike in snacking has caused an 85 percent spurt in online searches for "snack delivery" and "snack subscriptions" this year. Food writer Jolene Thym recently sampled a bunch of the snack boxes and shared her conclusions. Among the better ones: AP Munch offers a box with generous packs of tasty, nutritious, and unexpected snacks from Shrooms, b'cuz, Vegan Rob's, and Love Corn, among others; and American Natural Theme Boxes delivers gluten-free selections like Tate's chocolate chip cookies and Dang Coconut Chips. Not so impressive: Snack Sack, whose assortments are basically ho-hum and forgettable, Thym says.[Image Credit: © APmunch]

Indulgent Snacks Are A Form Of “Self-Medication” During Coronavirus Crisis

July 5, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Consumers are increasingly turning from healthful snack options to indulgent ones during the coronavirus pandemic, according to the NPD Group. Thirty-seven percent of surveyed consumers told NPD in April they wanted to make sure they were well-stocked on salty snacks, frozen sweets, and sweet or savory foods more than other, more healthful items. Snack food consumption has risen eight percent during the pandemic. Research has shown that people turn to comfort food, a form of “self-medication,” because of stress, and gravitate toward products with high fat or sugar. Chips, cookies, and other indulgent, inexpensive foods have a long shelf life, making them more attractive to homebound consumers.[Image Credit: © Shutterbug75 from Pixabay]

Spent Beer Brewing Grains Upcycled Into Healthful Snack Chips And Dip

July 2, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Danish brewery and brew/food tech laboratory Science Brew has developed a snack product from upcycled brewers’ spent grain (BSG), a nutrient-rich by-product of the beer brewing process that is mostly discarded (42 million tons a year worldwide). After the beer is brewed, the company separates it into a liquid and dry matter that is ground into a flour, mixed into a dough, rolled out, cut into triangle shapes, and baked. According to the company, the resulting chips “resemble and taste” like nachos: voila “Beerchos,” rich in protein, antioxidants, and fiber. The company also developed from upcycled ingredients a dip for Beerchos that purportedly has a “consistency similar to tapenade” (an olive/anchovy/caper paste). Science Brew plans to scale-up production to market the new products itself, but is also considering licensing out the technology. Science Brew was founded as a spinout from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).[Image Credit: © Science Brew]

Plant-Based Snack Company Helps Revive Scotland’s Seaweed Industry

June 30, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
With the help of £1.7 million ($2.2 million) in new investment, Scottish seaweed food firm Shore (Alness) is expanding its range of plant-based snacks. Shore uses sustainably harvested seaweed to produce its range of snacks, introduced in late 2018. Seaweed has a long history in Scotland: at one time the industry was worth about £7.5 million ($9.2 million) a year to the Hebrides alone. The funding package combines a business development grant from Highlands and Island Enterprise (HIE), equity investment from the Scottish Investment Bank (SIB), and contributions from several private investors.[Image Credit: © Ronile from Pixabay]

Pandemic Shifts Irish Snack Company To Online Marketing, With Good Results

June 27, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Northern Ireland’s Noisy Snacks says it has doubled its business in Great Britain over the past three months because of the coronavirus lockdown. The Ballygowan-based company pivoted to online sales and in-home snacking as its established outlets in bars and cocktail lounges were shuttered. Noisy Snacks offers a range of “boldly flavored” snacks whose packaging “makes lots of noise,” the company says. Unlike most snack companies, it uses eight percent flavoring, doubling “the taste, the flavor and the fun.” The secret ingredient is noise, “because every time a customer shakes a Noisy Snack pack, the extra flavors at the bottom of the bag are activated.” The snacks are flexitarian, vegan, gluten-free, and high in fiber and protein. Flavors include red curry and coconut, Jamaican jerky, pickled onion, and beef brisket.[Image Credit: © Noisy Snacks Ltd]

Avocado Puff Snacks Are BFY, But Not Quite As Healthful As Real Avocados

June 27, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
San Francisco-based Avo Crazy, a brand of Millennials-owned Naked Market, has introduced Avocado Puffs ($24 for eight-pack), better-for-you puffed snacks made from avocado powder. To make sure the powder doesn’t turn rancid during production, the avocados are first dehydrated and the fat is removed. The powder is then introduced during the puffing process. That means, unfortunately, that consumers are not getting the same healthy fats in the puffed snack as in a normal avocado. The snacks are dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, and relatively low in sodium (190 mg preserving) for a chip. Flavors available include vegan cheddar, vegan ranch, and BBQ.[Image Credit: © Project Breakfast]

Kerry Reports On Food Flavor Trends Including Emerging Snack Flavors

June 24, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Food and beverage flavor company Kerry (Teterboro, N.J.) says the pandemic’s crimp in consumer travel plans is fueling a desire to sample the world’s many exotic flavors, a trend known as “geo-based taste desires.” Global flavors include tropical notes such as dragon fruit, mangosteen, natsumikan, citrus, yuzu, matcha, and acai. Other international flavors likely to gather interest in the snacks world include za’atar (Middle Eastern spice blend), seaweed, bird’s eye chili, carom, edamame, and shichimi. Carom is an Indian herb commonly dry-roasted or fried in clarified butter. Shichimi, a common Japanese blend of roasted orange peel, black and white sesame seed, hemp, poppy seed, ginger, and seaweed, is used traditionally to flavor soups, noodle dishes, meats, and seafood. And now, maybe, snacks.[Image Credit: © Kerry Inc]

Pandemic Wreaks Havoc On Healthful Snacks: Is There Light At The End Of The Tunnel?

June 24, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The coronavirus pandemic’s stay-at-home orders gave a boost to conventional comfort foods, including salty snacks. Cracker sales jumped nearly 40 percent Y-O-Y in March; sales of Lay’s and Tostitos were up 32 percent and 42 percent, respectively. But that had a dampening effect on sales of new healthful snacks with ingredients like cassava and chickpeas, and with flavors such as basil, avocado, and sweet chili. Over time, consumers are likely to come back to these innovative BFY snacks, though a persistent economic downturn may keep consumers from buying non-essentials, including snacks of all kinds. The good news? A post-recession period could spark demand for premium, innovative options, including snacks that deliver vitamins and minerals, probiotics, fiber, collagen, and cannabidiol.[Image Credit: © UpliftFood]

Advanced Technologies Help Snack Makers Get Rid Of Sodium But Not Flavor

June 22, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Consumers in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region today are better–informed and more health–conscious about their diets, and well aware of the health risks associated with too much sodium. But when snack makers try to reduce sodium they run into a few challenges. Flavor complexity may be compromised, for example, and must be built back to create full–flavored snacks that deliver the umami mouthfeel and fullness in taste that consumers crave. The cost of reformulating without salt is another challenge: salt is cheap and snack manufacturers want cost–effective solutions. Though there are problems associated with use of potassium chloride as a salt substitute, a 45 to 50 percent sodium reduction in snacks can be achieved through a combination of KCl and various flavors. But thanks to the success of taste modulator technology, masking systems, and texture solutions, some of the flavor challenges arising from developing new products that are clean label, healthful. and nutritious are being solved.[Image Credit: © Thomas B. from Pixabay]

Delivering Dairy Protein-Based Snacks Offers Numerous New Product Opportunities

June 19, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC) and Innova Market Insights reveal in a new webinar that, while traditional snacks still dominate the market, unique new dairy-protein formats are grabbing some attention, including brownie protein bars, tortilla–style protein chips, protein crisps, and puffs, among others. Protein snacks have evolved into convenient solutions for today’s health–conscious consumers who realize that the benefits of dairy proteins are not reserved for young people or competitive athletes. Enticing new flavors, shapes, and sizes attract consumers of all ages. Traditional protein bars are still strong, but alternative forms such as bites and balls, gels, pastes, and jellies continue to grow in popularity to meet the needs of the “on–the–go” consumer.[Image Credit: © Tumisu from Pixabay]

Blake’s Seed Based Broadens Market Reach Beyond People With Food Allergies

June 17, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Chicago-based snack company Blake's Seed Based’s niche market is consumers with food allergies who need snack bars free from the top eight allergens. It’s a big market: more than 32 million people in the U.S. live with food allergies, 90 percent of whom are affected by the top eight allergens. But company founder Blake Sorenson is positioning his company to attract more than people with food allergies, so he is now focusing marketing on the general health benefits of seeds, while appealing to those looking for an alternative to nut–based and granola bars. Consumers are getting more savvy about seeds, which "are still trending," says Sorensen, and his seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, and flax) pack a lot of nutrition per serving (i.e., healthy fats, protein, and fiber). Launched as an online brand, the products can now be found in 1,000 brick–and–mortar stores nationally, often positioned next to category giants such as KIND. Still, the new pandemic-driven stay-at-home lifestyle has forced the company to rethink and strengthen its Direct-to-Consumer marketing strategy: it is building a new website to reflect the change in course.[Image Credit: © Blake's Seed Based]

From Doritos to Vlasic, pickle flavored chips are a sweet trend for salty snacks

June 17, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
PepsiCo-owned Frito Lays has jumped on the pickle-flavored chips bandwagon with a Doritos version only available at Dollar General and Circle K store for a limited time. Several other chip brands are offering pickled versions, including Lay’s (also PepsiCo), Utz, Pringles (owned by Kellogg's), and Kettle (owned by Campbell's Soup). Craft chip makers Herr’s, Uncle Ray’s, and Louisiana's iconic Zapp’s brands have also introduced pickle chips. ConAgra Foods pickle company Vlasic has a line of pickle chips, made from real pickles. Competing pickle company McClure’s offers pickle–flavored crinkle cut chips, including Spicy Pickle and Garlic and Dill Pickle. It’s possible pickle chips are growing in popularity because the flavor seems more “artisanal” than standard salt and vinegar chips, according to a report from food news website Eater.[Image Credit: © Conagra Brands]

As The Pandemic Grinds On, Coke Believes Even More Strongly in Innovation

June 16, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Coca-Cola is committed to innovation as a growth engine, especially now during the coronavirus pandemic. By staying local, by reacting quickly to developments, by staying tuned to consumer needs, and by determining “what behaviors are short-term versus those that may stick” as the pandemic drags on, the company will be able to turn challenges into opportunities. An example is hygiene, a particular concern of consumers now. "Building touchless solutions in the away-from-home channel is a big opportunity we need to tap into,” says Coca-Cola CFO John Murphy. In Australia and New Zealand, for example, Coca-Cola vending machines have started to accept bitcoin to reduce the number of contacts consumers need with the machine. [Image Credit: © The Coca Cola Company]
