Sustainability Of Peanut Farming Plays Big Role In Record Consumption Levels

December 2, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The National Peanut Board (NPB) says the consistent rise in the nut’s popularity, even during the pandemic, is largely due to its healthfulness and significant sustainability figures that resonate with consumers. Peanut consumption in the U.S. has hit record levels for the second year in a row: an all-time high of 7.9 pounds (3.5 kg) per American in 2021, topping the previous record level of 7.6 pounds (3.4 kg) in 2020. During the pandemic, peanuts helped people meet their nutritional needs during stressful and hectic times. As to sustainability, peanut farmers long ago began taking extra steps to care for their land because they knew it was key to being able to farm well into the future. Eco-conscious Gen Zers are among the biggest consumers of peanut products, though Millennials, Gen Xers, and Boomers also place the environment on the top of their list of priorities.

Lines Blurring Between Functional Foods, OTC Drugs, Supplements

December 1, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
A top exec at SnackFutures, the innovation and venture hub of Mondelēz International, told Fi Europe attendees recently that the lines between functional foods, over-the-counter drugs, and food supplements are getting fuzzier. According to innovations director Gil Horsky, ingredients that were common in the functional space – functional mushrooms, adaptogens, nootropics – are steadily moving into snacks and other foods. SnackFutures has explored the mushroom ingredient category with Millie Gram, a Mondelēz Global (East Hanover, N.J.) brand of nut-based spreads infused with mushroom blends and other ingredients.

Taste, Protein Quality Are Top Considerations In Food Purchases

November 30, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
More than three out of every five consumers around the world rank flavor and protein quality as their top priorities when buying food, including snacks, according to the “Protein Mindset” report from Irish taste and nutrition company Kerry. Protein consumers are motivated by health and wellness, with 50 percent of survey respondents associating protein with “healthy diet” and 46 percent with “healthy lifestyle.” Consumers are also willing to pay a premium for protein fortification: 75 percent would pay a higher price for protein fortified food and beverages. On-pack claims of “better for you,” “healthy halo,” and “clean label” were identified as crucial to creating protein-based foods and beverages that will resonate with consumers.

Louisiana Entrepreneur Grows His Dream Business From South American Seeds

November 29, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Aaron Gailmor’s healthy snacks venture – two-year-old Brass Roots – began when he encountered sacha inchi seeds in the bulk foods aisle of a California grocery store. The South American and Caribbean sacha inchi plant produces fruit with large, edible seeds that can be roasted, ground into powder, or pressed to extract oil, and are rich in protein, fiber, and heart-healthy fats. They are also free of many of the allergens associated with peanuts and tree nuts. After forging a relationship with a Thailand-based grower/supplier, he launched in New Orleans at the end of 2019. The company now makes three butters, three varieties of roasted seeds, and three “puffs,” essentially healthy versions of Cheetos. The company’s first round of investment came from a small venture capital firm in Chicago. A second round came in January 2021 from John B. Sanfilippo & Son Inc.

Zertus Acquires British Snack Maker Sun Valley Nut Company

November 24, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The German food group Zertus pushes into healthier snacking in the U.K. with the acquisition of Sun Valley from the Hacking family, who founded it in 1949. Zertus’ U.K. market presence includes free-from chocolate brand Nomo, kids' snacking brands The Fruit Factory and Forest of Hope, and a partnership with Diageo to produce Baileys Chocolates. Sun Valley's sales boomed during the pandemic, with revenue in 2020 up 13.9 percent to £45.5 million ($61 million). The increase in own label and retail sales made up for the "almost total" loss of pub sales.

Cereal-Loving Millennials Want Healthier Breakfasts For Their Kids

November 23, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Thanks to the breakfast preferences of Millennial parents, today’s cereals might come out of a box that promotes social justice, probably contain high protein and less sugar, and might be paired with milk that’s better for the planet. Breakfast cereals have also kept up with social media trends, including pop-ups like KITH Treats, collaborations between Supreme and Wheaties, and cereal milk latte recipes found on TikTok. Popular cereal brands on the market today swap out the sugar for added protein. Magic Spoon frosted snacks, for example, mimic the nutritional composition of a protein bar or keto smoothie, sweetened with monk fruit, stevia, and a rare, non-glycemic sugar called allulose. Three Wishes cereal is made with chickpeas and pea protein. Also available are “nostalgic” cereals like Schoolyard Snacks, which markets “old school,” keto-friendly cereals in vintage packaging.

Spotlight On The Products That Work Best In Micro Markets

November 22, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Micro market kiosks are convenient, easy-to-use, and offer an array of payment options, including cash, credit/debit cards, prepaid account, fingerprint reader, etc. But not all products work well in micro markets: those that meet the needs and demands of customers will help kiosk retailers succeed. Single-cup coffees and teas that offer multiple flavor choices are working the best, along with alkaline waters, CBD waters, and non-filtered spring waters. Also working for micro market distributors are healthy brain food snacks, including fresh fruits and granola, energy bars, and meals on-the-go in the form of shakes. And don’t forget the impulse items: energy drinks or other types of caffeinated beverages, gum, mints, candies, etc. Key advice: be on the lookout for the latest market trends.

Deceptive Brands Jump On The Healthy Snacks Bandwagon – It’s Called Healthwashing

November 17, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
With obesity and diabetes at an all-time high, consumers in the COVID and post-COVID era are looking for healthier snacks. Because of this, “purposeful’ snacking” – for fuel, focus, or a protein boost, for example – will become even more mainstream. But as the demand for better-for-you snacks grows, so do the number of snacks that claim a “health halo.” Unfortunately, the nutrition in the snacks often doesn’t live up to the health claims, a phenomenon known as healthwashing. Many so-called “healthy” snacks are either packed with sugar – “many refined sugar-free snack bars/balls contain more sugar than a Kit Kat” – or they contain unhealthful ingredients hiding behind “low sugar’ claims.” Some deceptive brands positioned in the health space deliberately obscure warnings they are legally required to carry – a particular problem online.

European Food Community Wants To Make Food Health Claims Comprehensible

November 17, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
To help food product developers communicate, and help consumers better understand, health claims, the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) has launched the Health Claims Unpacked project. The idea is based on the need for multinational producers to overcome the challenges in communicating health claims to European consumers from differing societies and cultures. Funded by EIT, the project wants to find out how consumers respond to health claims presented on food packages; what is the impact of wording, location on pack, and use of symbols and pictures; and how to help producers cope with regulatory requirements while appealing to consumers,

Advancements In Sustainable Packaging Bode Well For The Environment

November 16, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Consumers want sustainable packaging. In fact, 60 percent to 70 percent of consumers say they would pay more for it. There are challenges, however, particularly in material collection and curb side recycling, and in the use of multi-layers of materials such as films and foils. But the benefits outweigh the negatives. Many new alternative materials promote recycling and reusability that reduce landfill deposits. Successfully sourcing these alternative materials in a way that fits current recycling methods of collection requires care. With research and development of better materials, and industry revised standards for sorting and collecting, the flexible packaging market will continue to thrive and grow. End users will benefit from the advantages to such packaging. And society will benefit from a cleaner environment.

Millennials’ Concerns About Health and Wellness Drive The Food/Beverage Market

November 16, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The 72 million American Millennials – born between 1981 and 1996 – have been deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and are now placing a higher priority on health and wellness than any other generation. In consumer surveys, the Natural Marketing Institute (NMI) found that 77 percent of Millennials saw a healthy, balanced lifestyle as “very” or “extremely important” in 2020. It is not surprising, then, that Millennials are driving three of the biggest trends in health and wellness: immunity-boosting foods and supplements (beets, cider vinegar, citrus fruits, fermented vegetables, garlic, ginger, leafy green vegetables, etc.); flexitarian diets (reduced meat consumption); and plant-based products; and solutions for better sleep and mental health (melatonin, magnesium, CBD).

November 15, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The San Francisco-based food and beverages startup says the new cash, which brings the total funding raised to $33.5 million, will help it “create a new market of consumer products for Millennials.” The company uses a proprietary tool that collects purchase data from platforms like Shopify, Amazon, and search engines to determine which products have the most appeal to Millennials in the United States. The funding will allow further development of the tool while also boosting in-house incubation efforts, scaling existing brands, and focusing on acquisitions.

Food Ingredient Suppliers Highlight Consumer Trends In The Industry

November 15, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown functional “superfood” ingredients, particularly in the healthy snacking segment and convenience foods, into the spotlight. According to ingredient suppliers, the key consumer concerns driving this trend include: the search for immune-boosting food options – sources of vitamins C, D, A, B12, B6 – and the need to make healthier dietary choices; growing demand for ingredients that help fight insomnia and chronic fatigue; interest in ingredients that support mental health and mood; solutions for hormonal imbalances and menopausal issues; and consumer demand for functional botanicals – acerola, beetroot, yerba mate, ginger, hibiscus and carob – that deliver vitamins and antioxidants.

Mondelēz Sees No Post-Pandemic Slump In Online Snack Sales

November 14, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Chicago-based snack foods company says the pandemic-driven snacking boom will continue to grow even after mobility restrictions are lifted, mainly because consumers are now used to using digital devices to buy food online. Homebound snack shoppers have become fairly savvy at using ecommerce channels as a “lifeline during the pandemic,” said Mondelēz executive Maurizio Brusadelli. The company’s ecommerce sales have jumped by about 30 percent this year in Asia, the Middle East and Africa. In China, online buying comprised 20 percent of total sales, helped by partnerships with TikTok and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. “People were forced to buy online during the pandemic, and then they continued to buy online,” Brusadelli said.

Grain-Free Snack Makers Are On The Cusp Of A Major Trend

November 12, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Among all the attributes associated with BFY snacking, one stands out – grain free. Consumers are choosing grain-free snacks for a variety of reasons: allergies or ingredient intolerances; adherence to a keto, paleo, or other low-carb diet; a desire to improve gut health; support for regenerative agriculture; or just a desire for something new and different. Snack makers are delivering grain-free products formulated with cassava, nuts, legumes, pulses, root vegetables, or other grain substitutes. The trend started with the popular Siete tortilla chip brand, then spread to other brands like Barnana, Plant Snacks, Made With, and Mary’s Gone Crackers. But, as one industry expert noted, “Taste is still the No. 1 thing that drives these sales, and everything tastes delicious.” Even shoppers who don’t follow a grain-free diet still buy the snacks because they are attracted to the “unique labeling and ingredients.”

In its second acquisition since since being acquired by private-equity giant Bain Capital earlier this year, the Dublin-based multinational producer of branded food and beverage products has acquired savory-snacks supplier Freshers Foods, based in northwest England. The company’s main product is pork scratchings (fried pork rinds) that it sells under its own brand, Openshaws, and co-manufactures for the Snaffling Pig Co and Awfully Posh brands. In August, Valeo Foods acquired U.K. meat-snacks business New World Foods Europe, the owner of brands such as Wild West beef jerky. Valeo Foods plans to house Freshers Foods with New World Foods.

Supply Chain Crisis, Global Warming Lead To Rising Prices, Supply Shortages

November 8, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Like many companies worldwide, San Francisco, Calif.-based bakery Nana Joes Granola is being hurt by one of the unforeseen commercial side effects of the pandemic – namely, the supply chain crisis and its by-products, shortages and higher prices. The company blends only a few agricultural ingredients – rolled oats, nuts, seeds, and coconut – but they are sourced from all over the world. In addition, over the past 18 months prices have soared and availability tightened because of crop shortages caused by climate change. The owner of Nana Joes says so far, she has not passed rising costs on to her customers. However, she expects to pay $342,000 more for raw materials for next year’s products, up 52 percent from before the pandemic. So, price hikes – the granola now retails for $9 to $11 a bag – may be on the horizon.

Top Seedz Creator Will Use A $1.4M Prize To Take Her Company Global

November 7, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
A Buffalo, N.Y.-based company’s organic, vegan, and gluten-free seed crackers have found their way into America’s biggest supermarkets, including Whole Foods Markets. And now founder and transplanted New Zealander Rebecca Brady hopes to go worldwide with the help of the $1.4 million she won in a “New York business competition,” beating out 18 other contestants. After investing $5,000 of her own money to perfect the recipe – basically the crackers are made of pumpkin, sesame, sunflower, chia, hemp, and flax seeds – create the packaging, and develop the artisan manufacturing process, she hopes to expand globally and become a $100 million company. Before she can do that, however, she needs to spend some money on upgrading to automated production to meet retail store – including Whole Foods Market – demands.

Mercadona Debuts Own-Brand Breakfast Cereals In Its Stores

November 5, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Spanish supermarket chain’s “cereal mix” is a blend of top-quality healthy cereals: oats, puffed rice, cornflakes, and quinoa, and contains no added sugar or sweeteners.

Mars Wrigley Exec Says Snacking Trends Are Not New

November 2, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Blas Maquivar said in a recent podcast interview that the three important snack trends his company sees actually existed before the pandemic, but are now accelerating. The first is the digital default trend, as digital shopping has quintupled over the past 18 months. A second trend – back to nature and back to home – involves people discovering new activities with their families inside their homes. The third trend is health and wellness: consumers are more aware of what they are eating and more aware of their mental health. The real challenge for snack makers is to have the speed and agility to be one step ahead of the competition and to “delight consumers as they are embracing these trends,” he said.

Natasha’s Law Focuses British Consumers – And Food Companies – On Food Allergens

October 31, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Increasing numbers of British consumers are demanding more food allergen information and allergen-free products, thanks in part to Natasha’s Law. Enacted in 2019 to protect allergy sufferers – Natasha died of anaphylactic shock after eating a badly-labeled snack – the law is now in effect, The law, plus recent trends in dietary patterns, pose continued challenges for labeling and innovation in the growing free-from sector. For one thing, many food manufacturers were unprepared for the new regulations: four in ten businesses had never heard of the law, while eight in ten said they were unprepared. Nevertheless, a Mintel free-from foods report, which noted a free-from slowdown in 2019 in the U.K., says sales growth accelerated in 2020. Value sales rose by 16.9 percent year-on-year to break through the £1 billion ($1.4 billion) ceiling.

Aspire Food Group To Open Cricket Processing Facility In 2022

October 30, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Canadian cricket farmer announced plans to open a CAD$90 million (US$72.4 million), 100,000 square-foot automated cricket processing facility near London, Ont., in Q1/Q2 of next year. The processing plant will produce 10,000 tons of crickets a year in phase one. The company says that, before crickets can carve out a meaningful space in the alternative protein arena, costs need to be reduced and supplies of consistent, high-quality raw materials must go up. The new plant should go a long way to accomplishing those goals.

Added Fiber Benefits Cereal, Bakery, Snack Applications

October 25, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The demand for fiber in foods continues to grow, and food manufacturers have numerous opportunities to boost fiber content in their products, especially in snacks, bakery, and cereals. Nutrient-dense snacks, beverages, and even indulgent desserts are fortified with varying levels of added fiber to help people meet their wellness goals. Health-conscious shoppers and everyday athletes actively seek out fortified snacks, bars, sparkling waters, shakes, and smoothies, making them ideal targets for increased prebiotic fiber. Market data show that cereal and bakery account for two-thirds of all product launches with fiber claims. Cargill, for example, has created baked and rotary molded biscuits, gelatin jellies, ice cream, and fruit yogurts that achieve “high in fiber” claims along with a 30 percent sugar reduction.

Upcycled Snacks Offer A Food Waste Solution

October 24, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Consumers purchase so many food products without thinking about their often good and nutritious by-products, says Philadelphia restaurateur Kiki Aranita. But those otherwise edible by-products often end up in landfills. There are alternatives, however. Among the eight food brands committed to upcycling to reduce food waste are two snack brands: Pulp Pantry’s Pulp Chips (Jalapeño, BBQ, and Sea Salt Lime Pulp Chips), made using the fiber left over from juicing fruits and vegetables, so they’re naturally gluten-free and vegan; and Seconds Carrot Crackers, made from upcycled juice pulp and peels, tapioca flour, garlic powder, onion powder, turmeric, nutritional yeast, and flax and chia seeds – a vegan alternative to Cheez-Its, according to Aranita. A 6-box variety pack costs $42.
