Volume was down 2.5 percent on a comparable basis. The cost of sales rose $1.8 billion and operating profit decreased 12.5 percent to $224 million.

Israel’s Coca-Cola Bottler Targets Online Retailer Selling Lookalike Cola

May 1, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Super-Sol, Israel’s biggest supermarket chain, has been selling a cheaper private-label brand of cola whose packaging resembles Coca-Cola’s. To counter that tactic, Coke’s bottler in the country, Central Bottling Company, has acquired a 25 percent stake in BringBring, a new online food retailer. Though the founders and majority owners of BringBring say Coca-Cola’s investment does not amount to a declaration of war against Super-Sol, it does represent a major challenge to Super-Sol, which controls 70 percent of the online grocery market. BringBring promises grocery deliveries within four hours of ordering with no charge for orders over $56. It’s a big improvement over Super-Sol’s service, which promises only same-day service and charges $8 for orders less than $207.

April 30, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

A 20-year-old Danish bakery chain has expanded to the U.K. and will soon open its first store in the U.S. Founded in Christianshavn Denmark, the Lagkagehuset chain is majority-owned by the Norwegian capital fund FSN, whose cash infusion – and an 18 percent increase in sales in 2017 – is making the international expansion possible. CEO Jesper Friis said Lagkagehuset is looking forward to “exporting a small piece of Danish cultural history” when its Manhattan location opens this year. (© Lagkagehuset)

Coke’s Strategy In India Is Paying Dividends

April 27, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey’s strategy in India – focus on its product portfolio, bottling operations, distribution, and sales and communication – is paying off after years of sluggish sales. Popular drinks like Coca-Cola, Fanta, and Thums Up all experienced torpid sales, a situation worsened by demonetization. By September 2017, the company began to see a turnaround as volumes grew six percent during the quarter. By March 2018, the company had posted three consecutive quarters of growth. Portfolio changes eliminated gaps for competitors at critical price points: smaller packs of juices, new fizzy drinks, expansion of the premium drinks line, and a stronger mid-range line were all implemented. Lastly, to boost distribution, bottling unit Hindustan Coca-Cola merged two sales forces that were selling popular and juice-based drinks.

Starbucks Hopes To Trim $75M In Food Waste by 2020

April 27, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

Starbucks Corp. is losing $500 million a year on waste in its more than 8,000 company-operated U.S. stores, but hopes to cut that by 15 percent ($75 million)over the next year-and-a-half through greater efficiency. The company says its business model – “strict product quality requirements” plus “product availability” – always results in some waste. Food discarded because after the expiration date, and lost sales associated with a lack of inventory, are part of the costs. During Starbucks' fiscal second quarter, it cut waste costs by focusing on “outlier stores” that had high waste as a percentage of sales. It also improved training on the process of pulling .

Scary Food Warning Labels Not The Answer To Obesity Problem

April 26, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

The Chicago Tribune editorial board is warning readers that the scary food labeling policy in Chile could happen in the U.S., thanks to possible revisions of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Because of a growing obesity problem, Chile requires food companies to label high-calorie or high-fat treats with black stop-sign-shaped warning labels. As part of the NAFTA negotiations, officials are discussing similar warning labels, though the Trump administration is opposed to them on American foods. The Trib editors, while acknowledging the obesity crisis, argue that food labels shouldn’t be a part of trade negotiations in the first place, and “scare tactics like warning labels are a huge Super-Nanny-State overreach.” They also argue that obesity is not caused by eating fatty or sugary foods. “It is caused by people eating too much of those foods.” (Image credit: © International Trademark Association)

Coca-Cola Turns To Alcoholic Drinks In Japan, As Nonalcoholic Segment Stagnates

April 26, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Coca-Cola Japan this summer will launch Lemon-Dō, an alcoholic beverage that emulates the classic Japanese beverage chu-hai, also called "the lemon sour." The move to alcoholic beverages is based n the company’s reckoning that Japan’s soft drink and nonalcoholic market offers no growth potential. Three varieties Lemon-Dō to be sold include: Teiban Lemon (five percent alcohol/10 percent fruit-juice), Salty Lemon (seven percent alcohol/7 percent fruit juice), and the lightweight, Honey Lemon, only three percent alcohol and sweetened with honey and sugar. All will be sold in 350 ml cans, with retro-styled labels, at $1,50 each. According to the company, the chu-hai and low-alcohol beverage market is valued at more than a billion dollars.

Hey FDA, It’s Time To Update Those Rules About Labeling Eggs

April 25, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

An organic and free-range egg company has petitioned the FDA to modify its regulations to allow eggs to be labeled as a healthy food. New Hampshire-based Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs is puzzled that many sugary foods, such as toaster pastries and pudding cups, are allowed to market themselves as "healthy," but foods widely known to be nutritious, such as eggs, are not. In fact, the FDA’s stance on eggs is out of step with the thinking reflected in the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, issued by the USDA and the Department of Health and Human Services (HSS). "Our goal with this petition is to encourage the FDA to bring outdated regulations in line with current nutritional science and general consumer awareness,” says CEO Jesse Laflamme.

Coca-Cola Posted Solid First Quarter Financials

April 24, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

Coca-Cola announced it is on track to meet financial targets for the year, thanks to its refranchising strategy – net revenues declined by 16 percent as a result – and growth in new and core beverage brands. The company reported first quarter profit of $0.47 a share on revenue of $.6 billion, both numbers beating analyst estimates ($0.47 a share and $7.35 billion, respectively). The healthy numbers excited investors: shares rose by 1.6 percent after the results were announced. The stock was down more than four percent this year. In addition to selling off company-owned bottlers, Coca-Cola has invested in start-up beverage companies and relaunched its Coke Zero and Diet Coke brands with new flavors and packaging. First-quarter growth of the Coke Zero Sugar brand reached double-digits, and volume growth of Diet Coke in North America returned to positive territory.

C-Store Poll Shows Modest Rise in Coca-Cola, Monster 1Q Sales

April 23, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

A Wells Fargo Securities poll of 15,000 U.S. convenience stores found that first quarter Coca-Cola sales rose 2.3 percent in the channel, and retailers were pleased with the company’s recent relaunch of Diet Coke. Twenty percent of respondents plan to allocate incremental shelf space to the line. Some respondents complained about the company’s decision to take Smartwater “out of a beautiful sealed box with blue clouds,” a move that hurt stores’ ability to create displays. C-stores also reported that Monster Energy sales increased 5.4 percent in the quarter, and several praised the positive impact of RTD coffee innovations, such as Espresso and Caffe. Fifty-seven percent said Monster did the best job in introducing new innovations in the quarter, and 100 percent said they expected to give Caffe Monster shelf space.

Boxed Water Company Carves A Lucrative Niche In Packaged Water Market

April 23, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

Maryland-based beverage start-up Rethink Brands says it has found a lucrative niche in the $2.5 billion bottled water market by targeting health- and eco-conscious parents with zero-calorie, sugar-free flavored water in recyclable boxes. Co-founder Matthew Swanson says parents who wanted to give their kids water had to give them plastic bottles or sippy cups, but “Rethink Kids Water solves all those problems.” The Rethink Kids Water line provides a more healthful alternative to juices that contain sweeteners and other additives. Swanson says demand for the products has been strong enough for the company to double its offerings with four new flavors. The products are available in more than 10,000 stores, including CVS, Wegmans and Target.

Americans Replace Sugar With Natural Sweeteners

April 23, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Americans are increasingly avoiding sugar, but they still want sweetness, as long as its not synthetic. A Nielsen survey finds that 57 percent of consumers say low-sugar is important in the foods they buy, up from 55 percent last year. Thirteen percent say they follow a specific low-sugar diet, five percent follow a diabetic diet, and others follow popular low-carb diets like paleo, keto, Whole30, and Atkins. Regarding alternative sweeteners, the jury is still out. However, “in most cases, it is natural sweeteners that are winning,” a Nielsen researcher said.  [ Image credit: ©  Wikimedia  ]

Functional Sparkling Water From Sweden Targets America’s Diabetics

April 23, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Sweden’s Good Idea blood sugar management drink is tackling the America’s 30 million diabetics and 90 million pre-diabetics who need to manage blood sugar levels. The carbonated dietary supplement blends five specific amino acids with chromium to reduce post-meal blood sugar spikes significantly. The beverage is intended to be consumed before and during a meal when blood sugar levels tend to ebb and flow the most. Aventure’s research, conducted with scientists at Lund University, included nine clinical trials showing that Good Idea can help reduce blood sugar by 20 – 30 percent. Despite the functional benefits of the drink, parent company Aventure AB is positioning it as a sparkling water for a mass audience.

Bai Brands Is Newest Defendant In Malic Acid Lawsuits

April 20, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

Bai Brands is the latest in a string of food and beverage companies targeted by lawsuits accusing them of violating FDA ingredient labeling rules. Each of the suits, filed on behalf of four different plaintiffs by one attorney, claims that certain products should be labeled as “artificially flavored” because they contain the petrochemical-derived ingredient malic acid. There is some disagreement, however, as to whether malic acid is a flavoring itself, or merely a flavor enhancer, which would put it outside of FDA regulatory jurisdiction. There is also disagreement over whether the suits will advance in the courts. A spokesman for Dr Pepper Snapple Group, owner of Bai Brands, said the lawsuit has no merit, and the company would ”defend against it vigorously.” Other companies sued include Campbell Soup (V8 Splash drinks), Kellogg’s, and Frito-Lay.

Premium Coconut Water Company Spurns Traditional Retail Channel

April 20, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

Three-year-old premium coconut water company CoAqua doesn’t want to be seen in the low-rent district of traditional retail stores alongside lookalike coconut water brands. Company founder Grier Govorko says there’s not much difference among competitive brands, most of which claim to be a “sports replacement drink.” To differentiate itself CoAqua is sold only in luxury resorts and restaurants in Southeast Asia, and in the U.S. direct-to-consumer online channel. The target demographic is younger health-conscious consumers willing to pay $48 online for a 12-pack case. The packaging – single-serve, recyclable clear glass bottles with metallic pull-tab caps – also sets the brand apart. Govorko is not only committed to recycling, he feels his coconut water tastes naturally sweeter because it is pasteurized in glass bottles.

Avoid Processed Foods, Replace With “The Clean 20”

April 19, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

Processed foods – potato chips, snack cakes, frozen pizzas, etc. – may be tasty and convenient, but they are a major contributor to obesity and illness. Best-selling author Dr. Ian Smith says that transitioning away from processed foods to cleaner, more healthful edibles needn’t be difficult. In his new book, "The Clean 20: 20 Foods, 20 Days, Total Transformation," Smith lists the foods and the benefits of including them in our diets every day. They are: avocados, berries, cheese, chicken, chickpeas, eggs, kale, lemons, lentils, nuts, oatmeal, seafood, squash, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, turkey, quinoa,100 percent whole-grain or whole-wheat bread, whole-wheat pasta, and yogurt.

“Smart Packaging” Helps Extend Food Shelf Life, Reduces Waste

April 19, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A New Zealand university scientist who specializes in “smart packaging” says there are a number of viable solutions that can cut food waste. Each type of packaging acts differently depending on the food being protected. According to Dr. Jenneke Heising, “active packaging” extends shelf life by reducing negative factors, such as oxygen, that react with the food. Active packaging can also react to ethylene gas, slowing the ripening process of produce, and can also regulate the level of moisture, other gases, and temperature. Still another type of packaging uses antimicrobial materials to curb bacterial growth on fresh produce, reducing the need for preservatives.  [ Image credit: © Rabobank New Zealand  ]

Danone’s Water Sales Up Significantly

April 18, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Danone CEO Emmanuel Faber said several factors contributed to a three percent rise in the company’s share price and signified continued growth. Among the factors were the premiumization of Danone’s offering in early childhood nutrition in China, broad-based growth in waters, and gradual improvement in essential dairy and plant-based activities. The water business, which includes the Evian brand, experienced a four percent rise in sales, but dairy sales in Europe, though improving, still dropped 0.3 percent in the first quarter compared to the same period last year. Faber said demand for baby formulas in China – fed by a sharp rise in birth rates – helped boost like-for-like sales by almost five percent.

Food Waste In The U.S. Exacts A Huge Environmental Toll

April 18, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A new study by university and USDA researchers has found that about 25 percent of all food available to eat in the U.S. – one pound per person, or about 30 percent of available calories – is wasted each day. The environmental costs of such food waste are huge. About 30 million acres of cropland, 4.2 trillion gallons of water, and nearly two billion pounds of fertilizer are used to produce the wasted food. The most wasted foods – fruits and vegetables – are actually the healthiest: produce waste amounts to 39 percent of the food wasted by each person, according to the study published in the journal PLOS ONE.  [ Image credit: © Wikepedia  ]

Carbs Schmarbs, Bring On The Toast

April 18, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Food writer JeanMarie Brownson says toast is having a long moment in the U.S., thanks to the popularity of avocado spread, and despite the anti-carb trend. But there are other good things to slather or sprinkle on toasted bread, she notes. There’s old favorite cinnamon, for example. Other possibilities include cheese and béchamel sauce; mushrooms sautéed with spicy poblano pepper and glazed with cream; hummus, cucumber, feta and micro-arugula; and hummus and sautéed ground lamb and feta. But it’s not just the toppings that matter. “Crusty, toasted bread also makes lunch better,” she says.  [ Image credit: ©  Wikimedia  ]

Retail Grocers Are Major Culprits In America’s Food Waste Problem

April 17, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Supermarket chains in the U.S. are contributing significantly to the nation’s food waste problems, according to a new report. Nine of the ten largest grocery retailers – Ahold Delhaize is the exception – do not publicly report their total volume of food waste. The study, conducted by the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Ugly Fruit and Veg Campaign, listed five companies – Target, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Costco, and Publix – who earned a “D” grade for efforts to reduce waste. Aldi flunked the evaluation, while Walmart earned a “B.” Food retailers generate 40 percent of the food waste in the U.S., more than restaurants or foodservice providers, the study noted. A CBD spokesperson said food waste squanders farmland and water and puts food security at risk. “We can stop this massive waste, but only if supermarkets are part of the solution," Jennifer Molidor.  [ Image credit: ©  Wikepedia  ]

Nestlé Waters NA Buys Delivery Business Of Connecticut-Based Spring Water Company

April 17, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

Nestlé Waters NA has acquired the home and office delivery businesses of Meriden, Conn.-based Triple Spring Spring Water Co. The company, whose name comes from the three springs on its property, originated as a farm in 1918 and began selling bottled water locally in the 1940s. In 1974 it began selling water statewide, and later in New York and Long Island. A Nestlé Waters spokeswoman said a subsidiary, ReadyRefresh, would handle the acquired portions of Triple Spring. However, customers will still be able to purchase Triple Spring water from an onsite company vending machine at any time.

Monster Energy’s “Camo” Can Isn’t A Political Statement

April 16, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Monster Energy, known for the bizarre terminology and descriptions on its beverage cans, has created an Internet sensation with its Assault energy drink can. Besides the rant on the back – “We’re not for ‘the War,’ against ‘the War,’ or any war for that matter” – the can sports a military-style “camo” pattern. The $32 billion company – Coca-Cola owns 16.7 percent – has been a huge success despite its strange packaging, at a time when major competitors are struggling to boost sales. The camo can is not a political statement, the company says. It’s more of a motivational tool that “helps fire us up to fight the big multinational companies who dominate the beverage business." And: “We think it looks cool.”

Consumer Survey Spotlights Attitudes Toward Bread Products

April 16, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A survey among U.S. consumers by N.Y.-based flavor company Comax Flavors found that bread is far from moribund as a diet staple, though preferences are evolving. Consumers are gravitating toward low-calorie, whole grain, artisanal, and gluten-free breads. The survey also found that: taste and price are the most important factors in choosing a bread; whole wheat is the number one flavor; rye and sourdough are equally enjoyed; and a majority (55 percent) prefer eating an open-faced bagel sandwich (45 percent prefer it closed)Among those who don’t eat bread, 16 percent said it was  because of its high carb content. The survey, conducted in September 2017, covered attitudes toward sliced bread, English muffins, bagels, pitas, and wraps/flatbreads.  [ Image credit: © Wikimedia ]

Banana Cleaners Make Peels Edible, Keep Them Out Of Landfills

April 12, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A California-based company looking to reduce food waste has launched the “Save the Peels” campaign with a goal of redirecting 18 million pounds of banana peel waste from landfills. More than 3.2 billion pounds of bananas are eaten every year in the U.S., adding 780 million pounds of peels to landfills where they decompose, forming harmful methane gas. EatCleaner has developed cleaning solutions that allow peels to be cleaned of agricultural sprays, waxes, chemicals, and germ-laden debris. Ripe, clean peels can then be used to make smoothies, banana breads and muffins are rich in fiber, amino acids, and antioxidants.  [ Image credit: ©  EatCleaner  ]

Tahini Moves Beyond Hummus Into Baked Goods

April 12, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Chefs and bakers in the U.S. and in the U.K. have begun using an ingredient better known to makers of hummus. The crushed sesame seed paste known as tahini is showing up in yogurt, as a dressing on grilled vegetables or meat, and sprinkled on ice cream. Bakers are also using it to make rye and sourdough breads, as well as cakes. British bakery Nutritiously Naughty makes gluten-free coconut brownies with tahini used in place of nut butter. A London bakery mixes the tahini-based sweet known as halva into its buttery, rich brownies. [ Image credit: ©  Wikimedia  ]

Danone NA Certified As Eco-Friendly B Corporation

April 12, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Danone North America, maker of plant-based milk beverages and yogurts, was recently certified as a B Corporation that has established standards regarding social and environmental performance. Recently renamed from DanoneWave, the company also changed its legal structure to become a public benefit company. There was some worry that B Corporation certification and environmental friendliness would be costly, but that has not proven to be the case. The company’s largest dairy manufacturing plant has cut water usage, for example, by using new technology. The plant now saves 250,000 gallons a day. The company is encouraging suppliers to adopt sustainable practices, noting that plant-based packaging saves money that can be used to pay workers higher wages.

Edible-Insect Supplier Entomo Farms Attracts Grocers, Manufacturers

April 12, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A co-founder of Canada’s Entomo Farms, an insect farmer and processor, says recent moves by grocery chain Loblaws and Maple Leaf Foods indicate that the edible insect movement may be gaining momentum. According to Jarrod Goldin, meat- and plant-protein company Maple Leaf Foods bought a minority stake in Entomo, and Loblaws is now marketing a private-label version of Entomo’s cricket powder. Some small food brands in North America buy cricket powder from suppliers in Thailand, Vietnam and other countries, but larger ones prefer dealing with suppliers closer to home They also prefer companies certified by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). Entomo Farms supplies more than 50 companies in eight countries with cricket and mealworm ingredients for protein bars, smoothies, chips, crackers, pasta and pasta sauce, baking mixes, hot dogs, and pet treats.

Multiple Interwoven Trends Combine To Pummel Carbonated Soda Sales

April 11, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Despite 90 percent market penetration in the U.S., the mature carbonated soft drink (CSD) industry needs to innovate to reverse 13 years of declining sales volumes, according to analysts who advise suppliers to combat adverse trends by offering more healthful options, varied flavors, and other benefits. Innovation in these areas must involve effective marketing to Generation Z and Millennials, and to increasingly diverse ethnic populations. Factors contributing to stagnated CSD value sales have included the rise of the health-and-wellness movement, the declining effectiveness of value-adding strategies, and increased competition. Health-conscious consumers are spurning sugary CSDs and artificially-sweetened diet CSDs – about 20 percent of consumers have trimmed soda intake. Mintel says the number and range of competitive beverages, many claiming to offer health benefits, is “a prime challenge to the CSD market.”

Nestlé Waters’ Plastic Packaging Is Recyclable, But Consumers Need To Recycle

April 11, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Nestlé Waters has announced plans to make 100 percent of its packaging across the business recyclable or re-usable by 2025. But another goal – no packaging ending up in landfills or as litter – requires help from consumers. PET has the potential to be a reusable resource, but it’s a major challenge: industrywide only half of bottles are recycled. The company says nearly all of its bottles are recyclable now, and it is working on the exceptions. But to achieve the goal of zero-landfill-disposal, the company said it needs the cooperation of consumers globally. To that end, it is “raising their awareness” via brand platforms and corporate educational programs such as those implemented in Italy, Argentina, U.K., and Thailand. In the U.S., the company uses “clear and consistent How2Recyle instruction” on half-liter bottle labels of major brands.

The basic idea is to catalyze business innovation, according to chief executive Alison Watkins, but not in beverages or products. The company’s new venture, dubbed Amatil X, wants to focus on improving the ways it deals with retailers that stock its products, under the broad themes of sustainability, use of customer information, and delivery.

The Many Possible Uses Of Coffee Grounds

April 10, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
British consumers are very much into coffee: 2.4 billion cups are consumed each year. But making that coffee creates 500,000 tons of grounds each year, most of it ending up in the landfill. Advocates of better use of coffee grounds have come up with a fairly long list of alternatives to simply trashing them. Among the creative options are using grounds in: making cocktails; insect repellant; skincare exfoliant; fueling vehicles; fertilizing gardens and deterring slugs; cooking; keeping shoes and refrigerators fresh; growing mushrooms; and making paint.  [ Image credit: © Wikimedia   ]
