Nestlé’s Pandemic Response Is To “Rethink” The Out-Of-Home Business, Not “Right-Size” It

August 3, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Nestlé CEO Ulf Mark Schneider told investors recently that the company has no plans to “right-size” its business in response to the coronavirus pandemic, but it is definitely “rethinking” categories like coffee and water and will adapt wherever possible in the out-of-home business. That means less hotel and restaurant business “for a while going forward,” Schneider said. But he noted that many more consumers have ordered in from restaurants and dark kitchens during the crisis, so “there's almost like a blurring of the lines between what is in-home consumption and what is out-of-home consumption.” Nestlé’s out-of-home sales declined by as much as 60 percent in the first half of the year as offices, restaurants, and hotels closed. The company’s year-to-date profit increased 18 percent to 5.9 billion Swiss francs ($6.5 billion); earnings per share increased 22 percent to 2.06 Swiss francs ($2.29). [Image Credit: © Nestlé]

Salt of the Earth Says Its Mediterranean Umami Ingredient Can Cut Salt Content Of Snacks

July 31, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Israeli sustainable sea salt flavoring company says that its clean label ingredient can help improve a snack’s Nutri-Score by reducing sodium content. The nutrient score shows that the Mediterranean Umami ingredient, derived from plant extracts containing umami flavor compounds, can be used as a 1:1 drop-in replacement for salt in snack applications. Available in powder and liquid form, the ingredient cuts sodium by up to 45 percent, improving the Nutri-Score by 3-5 points. That, in many cases, is enough to improve the overall letter score, the company claims. The 5-color Nutri-Score nutrition label, used by European countries and companies like Nestlé and Danone, converts the nutritional value of products into a simple letter/color code.[Image Credit: © Salt of the Earth Ltd.]

Snack Innovators Are Focusing On Zesty Flavors, Strong Nutritional Profiles

July 29, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
As snacking takes on greater importance in the on-the-go and, perhaps paradoxically, pandemic-induced stay-at-home lifestyles, snack companies have ramped up innovation. Leading advances in snacking include exotic flavors, “plant-forward” products, high-protein treats, and zesty nutritional snacks. Examples of plant-forward snacks include: Wholly Rollies (3One), a round, nut-based snack; and Power Veggie Bites (Appleton’s Market), a muffin-like snack made with broccoli, carrots, and Swiss chard. High-protein snacks feature peanuts, beef jerky, or pork rinds. Trendy flavors that appeal to snack lovers: international, savory, spicy, smoky, and umami, often combined with traditionally sweet products, like sea salt caramels or smoked almond toffee. Bold, spicy flavors are also having their day – “the hotter the better.” An example of healthful+zesty is Spicy Peri Peri Biltong Sticks (Stryve): the clean-label beef stick snack contains only common foodstuffs like beef, vinegar, salt, chili pepper, coriander, black pepper, nutmeg, clove, and lamb casing.[Image Credit: © piviso from Pixabay]

By Changing Corn’s Amino Acid Profile, Plant Scientist Makes Popcorn More Healthful

July 28, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
A University of Nebraska-Lincoln plant breeder who believes popcorn can and should be healthful has come up with a way to imbue corn with a more complete amino acid profile. The original goal was to improve the levels of lysine and tryptophan in the corn kernel through traditional breeding. Once that was accomplished, popcorn was the next logical target. Corn is high in protein, but it is not the complete protein needed by the human body. Some amino acids, especially lysine, are deficient. By changing the protein profile, David Holding says, corn becomes a more complete protein source, and popcorn could become “a unique food snack that's compatible with the healthy eating movement." The new varieties may also offer some interesting flavor possibilities. The only downside? "A slight reduction" in the popping volume, he says.[Image Credit: © Deborah Breen Whiting from Pixabay]

U.K. Initiative On Obesity Riles Snack Makers

July 27, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Arguing that the harsh impact of the coronavirus pandemic is bad enough, the snack industry says government-imposed restrictions on foods and beverages would further harm the nation’s consumers and economy. The European Snacks Association (ESA) and the Snack, Nut and Crisp Manufacturers Association (SNACMA) have endorsed the Food and Drink Federation’s (FDF) position that PM Boris Johnson’s obesity plan would deal a “punishing blow” to a struggling economy. The goal of Johnson’s Better Health campaign is to tackle the nation’s increasing obesity problem, which has been exacerbated by the coronavirus outbreak. As part of the program, “junk” food advertising will be banned online and before the 9 pm time slot on television. A Public Health England study reported recently that a diagnosis of “medically obese” increases the risk of death from coronavirus by 40 percent. Thirty-six percent of U.K. adults are overweight, and 28 percent are obese.[Image Credit: © Vidmir Raic from Pixabay]

China’s Wholly Moly Wants To Replace Rice With Whole Grains In Country’s Diet

July 24, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The young Shanghai-based company has its marketing eyes fixed on the country’s younger, more health-conscious generation with its instant oatmeal made of oat bran. The company raised several million dollars from C Ventures, led by a Hong Kong billionaire, to take advantage of China’s burgeoning health food market. “China has a severe lack of wholegrain food options,” said Claire Fang, founder and chief executive. “We want to introduce [whole grains] into young people’s diet in a way that is easy for them to embrace.” The market for natural health food in China is forecast to expand to $26 billion in value by 2022, an annual rate of 12 percent since 2017. Wholly Moly, which generates 90 percent of its income from e-commerce channels, including a store on Tmall, posted sales of $15 million in 2019 and hopes to triple that this year. The company works with farms and milling factories in the Midwest and northern U.S. as well as southern Canada, because the oats harvested there are said to be more aromatic and chewier than cheaper oats planted in China or Australia.[Image Credit: © Yum Delight, Inc./WhollyMolyChina]

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]

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]

July 15, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The New York-based direct-to-consumer start-up claims it is “not a snack box,” but offers hundreds of snacking options in 14 different categories from established snack firms and from "off-the-beaten path" brands new to the marketplace.

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]

July 6, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Though start-up investment has been hobbled somewhat by economic hardships and uncertainty resulting from the pandemic, Florida-based snack maker Summit Naturals managed to raise $9.5 million in capital, according to two SEC filings.

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]

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]
