Comfort, Flavor, Value, Functionality Were Hallmarks Of Cracker Sales In Early-2020

September 16, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
As homebound shoppers stocked up on familiar and traditional shelf-stable snacks that deliver comfort, nostalgia, and flavor during the pandemic, dollar sales for crackers leapt 14.1 percent for the four months ending April 5, 2020, year-over-year. Sales were up 6.8 percent over the previous quarter ending June 14, 2020. Camden, N.J.-based Campbell Snacks has introduced more than a dozen new cracker products this year. Traditionals like Kellogg’s Cheez-It Baked Snack Crackers, Pepperidge Farm Goldfish, and Nabisco’s Ritz Crackers earned the most dollar sales. Pepperidge Farm Flavor Blasted Goldfish sales rose 19.6 percent. But customers were also looking for healthful attributes, e.g. fiber as a functional benefit. TH Foods’ Crunchmaster brand launched a line of fiber-rich Grain-Free Crackers. Also high on the shopping list were functional snacks that boost energy or satiate hunger mid-morning or afternoon. Another cracker shopping trend: larger package sizes. Crunchmaster launched a 10-oz Party Pack of its bestselling Multi-Seed Original Crackers to appeal to value-seekers.  [Image Credit: © WikimediaImages from Pixabay]

Scottish Snack Company Partners With Farmers To Put “Wonky” Cauliflower To Good Use

September 15, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
As recently as seven years ago, 40 percent of fruit and vegetable waste in the U.K. comprised ugly or “wonky” produce. But consumers, farmers, food makers, and retailers all seem to agree now that ugly vegetables are just as nutritious as the pretty ones, and their use will help reduce waste and make farming greener and more sustainable. An example is a Scottish snack company that has added a cauliflower chip (crisp) to its better-for-you snack line, which includes toasted coconut chips and roasted pulses. Nudie Snacks (Fife) produces the snacks in partnership with Growers Garden, a venture of the East of Scotland Growers collective of 16 farms. The crisps are made from 40 percent fresh, if wonky, cauliflower and come in cheese and caramelized onion and katsu curry flavors. They are low in sugar and roughly 40 percent lower in saturated fat than standard potato crisps.[Image Credit: © Nudie Snacks]

Pringles Hopes To Shed Its “Nightmare” Environmental Packaging Image

September 12, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Kellogg’s brand is revamping its iconic cylindrical packaging in the U.K. to be more environmentally friendly. Pringles was dubbed the greatest villain of the recycling world because of its foil-lined cardboard tubes, metal bases, tear-away lids, and plastic caps – “a nightmare to recycle due to the combination of materials present,” according to the Recycling Association. Kellogg’s is testing a tube made of widely recyclable paper, allowing customers to dispose of the packaging with their regular household recycling. The new tubes are being sold at three Tesco stores in East Anglia as part of a six-week trial. If successful, the tubes (with plastic and cardboard lids) will be introduced to shops more widely across Europe. Kellogg’s pledged in 2018 to make all its packaging reusable, recyclable, or compostable by end of 2025.[Image Credit: © Kellogg NA Co.]

McCabe's Granola To Pitch Its Product To Walmart Buyers In Virtual “Open Call” Event

September 10, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Cincinnati granola maker will present its case to Walmart buyers on Oct. 1, 2020, via virtual pitch meetings that could mean a major leap forward for the Seven Hills Food brand. According to reports, a successful pitch could quadruple the number of stores that carry McCabe’s Granola products if it can convince buyers they belong on Walmart store shelves. Walmart chose 850 companies out of 4,800 applicants for this year's event. McCabe's is made with expensive olive oil, a more healthful ingredient than the canola oil or brown rice syrup that others use. McCabe's keeps prices reasonable by cutting back on some of its profit margins, but the products still cost around $6 to $6.50 while others run about $3.50.[Image Credit: © McCabes Granola]

Research Finds Consumers Wary Of GMOs, Especially In Kids’ Snacks

September 8, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
A survey by the International Food Information Council Foundation showed consumers were very interested in non-GMO foods and beverages. Non-GMO was the third most influential attribute behind natural and no added hormones or steroids and ahead of organic, locally sourced, and pesticide free. Oddly enough, many organic food marketers add non-GMO label claims to their products even though organic certification requires non-GMO ingredients, according to Mintel. Cargill research found that parents were “especially sensitive” to GMOs when they shopped for snack bars for their children: thirty percent said they would avoid snack bars with GMO ingredients. Twenty-one percent of parents would avoid sweet baked treats containing GMOs. A similar number indicated they would avoid GMOs in candy and salty snacks. But only 12 percent of adults said they would avoid baked goods made with GMOs. Salty snacks and snack bars scored slightly higher.[Image Credit: © Cargill, Incorporated]

Market Researchers Reveal Snacking Trends For 2020

September 3, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The major trend uncovered by recent snack market research data is the pervasive impact of the coronavirus pandemic – and associated stay-at-home behaviors. Because of the pandemic, and ensuing panic buying, consumers bought indulgent treats like salty snacks in larger quantities. Salty snacks – potato chips, tortilla chips, cheese snacks, etc. – have been the No. 2 food item contributing to dollar growth at retailers since early March, according to IRI, and tallied $21 billion in sales for the 52 weeks ending June 14. As the country reopens, Industry observers expect continued: demand for large package sizes and multipacks; reliance on ecommerce; strong emphasis on flavor, especially bold flavors, international and regional; and reliance on good quality, cheaper private label snacks. Lastly, “In the long-term, pent-up demand will reignite consumer preference for the new and different, the unusual.”[Image Credit: © Thomas B. from Pixabay]

Quinn Gets $3M Cash Infusion

September 1, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Colorado-based natural snack maker recently closed a Series D round of funding that bolstered its cash reserves by $2 million. The entire board of directors, as well as several other investors, participated in the round. The cash will be used to strengthen its sustainability and transparency mission, its retail and ecommerce presence, and fund development of “more first-to-market product lines.” Founded ten years ago, Quinn has experienced a 65 percent growth in revenue this year over 2019, driven by expanded distribution and a recently launched Paleo-friendly, grain-free pretzel chip. It was also first-to-market with a microwave popcorn in a patented Pure Pop popping bag made of compostable paper free of chemicals, plastic, and heat conducting susceptors. Quinn expanded into Walmart and increased listings with Whole Foods Market, Kroger, and Wegmans, bringing its presence to over 7,000 U.S. retail outlets.[Image Credit: © Quinn Snacks Inc.]

NatureBox Shifts Its Office Snacks Business To Company-Subsidized Home Snacks

August 31, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
As the office snacks business collapsed amid pandemic lockdowns and closings, the California  company shifted to a new business model: delivering subsidized snacks to employees working at home. NatureBox says the approach didn’t work in every case, mainly because keeping remote-working employees stocked in snacks is not a top priority with all the pressure to cut costs. But many firms are eager to continue offering snacks to show appreciation for staff working at home. For $25 per employee each month, the company delivers customized snack boxes directly to employees at home or at the office. A second option is to give a free corporate membership to employees who can buy discounted better-for-you snacks themselves.[Image Credit: © NatureBox]

“Beverages For Life” Strategy Is Inspiration For Coca-Cola’s Latest Reorganization

August 28, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Atlanta-based company’s newest reorganization helps implement the strategy of ensuring there’s a Coca-Cola beverage for consumers at every life stage and for every occasion. The reorganization – which affects operations, beverage categories, and services – will drive growth by balancing the “power of scale” with deep local marketing information. Nine new tightly-interconnected operating units will replace the current 17, offering more consistency in structure, less resource duplication, and faster scaling of new products. The company has settled on five global categories that show the strongest consumer opportunities: Coca-Cola; sparkling flavors; hydration, sports, coffee, and tea; nutrition, juice, milk, and plant; and a catch-all “emerging categories.” The company expects that the reorganization will require layoffs globally, but it has initiated a “voluntary separation program” offering employees a separation package. The severance programs could cost as much as $55 million, the company said.[Image Credit: © The Coca-Cola Company]

Nut Snack Providers Faced With Tons Of Unwanted Product As Airlines Cut Flights

August 26, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The coronavirus pandemic has forced airlines to reduce flights and limit onboard services to cut costs. These changes have affected a variety of companies that support the airline industry, including suppliers of nut mixes to first-class passengers. They have been stuck with a glut of unneeded products at risk of spoilage. For example, GNS Foods, a woman-owned, family business that supplies United Airlines, was stuck with more than fifteen tons of warehoused baggies of mixed nuts and raw ingredients. The company has turned to retail channels, selling its goods at what it says are "near-cost" prices. Nut lovers can find two-pound bags of the Elite Status mix (that's whole cashews and whole almonds) for $7.99 on the company's online storefront, and of the Elite Status Hawaii mix (whole cashews, whole almonds, and large whole macadamia nuts) for $10.99, a lot less than the prices at Whole Foods Market.[Image Credit: © GreatNuts.com]

Pandemic-Related Trends Depress Nut Prices In Midst Of Bumper Crop

August 25, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Nut prices have slumped in the past several months the coronavirus pandemic battered air travel, shuttered pubs, and nearly eliminated on-the-go snacking. A food retail consultancy found that cashew prices sank to their lowest level since Mintec's records began in 2011. In India, religious canceled festivities and weddings curbed demand for nuts used in curries.  There was less demand in Europe for almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, and Brazil nuts as fewer workers commuted to offices. Meanwhile, favorable weather led the USDA to forecast another record crop of almonds which, combined with limited demand, depressed almond prices by 41 percent. [Image Credit: © PublicDomainPictures from Pixabay]

Anti-Sugar Groups In U.K. Decry Fruity Snacks Marketed As Healthful For Kids

August 22, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
British anti-sugar groups such as Action on Sugar and the London Early Years Foundation have warned that the country’s National Food Strategy risks being weakened by treats marketed by manufacturers and retailers as healthful fruit-based snacks for children. Snacks such as Percy Pig and Bear Pure Fruit Yoyos are, in fact, full of harmful sugar. The groups have called on the government to crack down on these products as part of a new anti-obesity program to get Britain fit. The groups spoke out following the publication of a 110-page independent review of U.K. food policy that says obesity is a "national emergency we can no longer afford to ignore" and that the coronavirus pandemic had "given a new urgency to the slow-motion disaster of the British diet."[Image Credit: © Bruno /Germany from Pixabay]

Nudie Snacks Turns “Wonky” Cauliflower Into Snack Chips

August 21, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Scottish snack company’s new Cauliflower Crisps are made from 40 percent fresh cauliflower grown in Scotland. The crisps, available cheese and caramelised onion and katsu curry flavors, contain no artificial flavorings or colorings, are low in sugar and 40 percent lower in saturated fat than traditional potato crisps (chips). The company says they are also reducing food waste because they are made from vegetables often thrown out because they don’t meet standard shape and size requirements. Nudie Snacks also markets lentil curls flavored with chilli and lime, quinoa chips with sundried tomato and garlic, lightly salted roasted corn, lightly salted hummus chips, and popcorn. A box of 12 22-gram, 118-calorie bags of Cauliflower Crisps is £9.99 ($13.13).[Image Credit: © Nudie Snacks]

Latin Americans Are Willing To Pay A Premium For “Natural” Foods, Beverages

August 21, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
A survey of more than 1,500 Latin American consumers conducted by flavor and fragrance maker Symrise found that while price remains an important consideration in the selection of foods, snacks, and beverages, participants said they were willing to pay more for products that “embrace true naturalness.” And that presents marketing opportunities for producers of organic, fresh, and “free from” foods. In the savory and snacks category, consumers look for quality brands and pay particular attention to labels and ingredients. In Brazil, for example, Symrise found that consumers perceive soups as a healthy snack and useful as an option for weight loss. Other key highlights: fruit flavors, especially from the citrus family, are highly preferred; and consumers are avoiding ingredients with scientific or artificial-sounding names; [Image Credit: © Marijana from Pixabay]

Mexican Lawmakers Have High-Calorie Snacks In Their Sights

August 21, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Legislators in several Mexican states are imposing or considering restrictions on the sales of high-calorie snacks because they have contributed to the country’s soaring childhood obesity rates and an unusually young coronavirus death toll. The Gulf coast state of Tabasco, for example, passed limits on the sale of sugary bottled drinks and high-carbohydrate snacks recently, shortly after the southern state of Oaxaca became the first to do so. Lawmakers in other Mexican states have introduced similar bills barring merchants from selling "junk" food to minors unless a parent or guardian is present and approves. In Chihuahua, a legislator introduced a bill "to guarantee our children and youths a healthier diet and to fight obesity and excess weight." And the mayor of Mexico City said she is working with legislators to see if it is feasible to get similar legislation there. Some of the measures would also ban vending machines from dispensing such foods and prohibit sale in or near schools.[Image Credit: © hayme100 from Pixabay]

Better-For-You Trend Gains Prominence In Snack Industry

August 20, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Mel Festejo of American Key Food Products (Closter, N.J.) says the snack and bakery industry is getting better at meeting consumer demands for "the delicate balance of 'healthy indulgence'” by providing better-for-you snacks and baked goods. The better-for-you balance is “particularly handy” in snacks, he says, because snacks have gone from being sometime-treats to becoming today's take on the meal. This has opened the door to innovations like seaweed- and seed-studded crackers, and gluten-free snacks; snacks that cater to diet and health trends like paleo, keto, and vegan; snacks that address fitness, mental health, and rest; and snacks that appeal to consumers following flexitarian and plant-based diets.[Image Credit: © Sabine Schulte from Pixabay]
