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]

Utz To Go Public After Merger With Acquisition Company Collier Creek

June 9, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Century-old Utz Quality Foods LLC will become a public company valued at $1 billion as part of a merger agreement with acquisition company Collier Creek Holdings that is expected to close in the fall. The merged companies will be known as Utz Brands Inc., will trade under the NYSE ticker symbol UTZ, and will remain in Hanover, Pa. The Rice and Lissette family, the founding family and owners of Utz, will retain more than 90 percent of its existing equity stake, which will represent more than 50 percent ownership in Utz Brands after closing. The deal will likely leave Chester-County-based Herr's Foods Inc. as the largest privately-held and family-owned snack company in the U.S. Utz had $768 million in revenue last year and ranked fourth in market share for U.S. salty snacks behind PepsiCo, Campbell Soup Co., and Kellogg Co. According to news reports, executives from Utz and Collier Creek say acquisitions will play a key part of future growth strategy.[Image Credit: © Utz Quality Foods, LLC]

Singapore Company Searches For Perfect Blend Of Insects, Plants For New Snacks

June 9, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Insect-based foods firm Bugsolutely is developing a new snack with the help of Singapore-based partner Asia Insect Farm Solutions (AIFS) and supported by the government-based Food Innovation and Resource Centre (FIRC). The new snack will be formulated with both insect- and plant-based proteins to maximize nutrition, while minimizing processing costs and maximizing consumer benefits, according to founder Massimo Reverberi. Production costs can be steep in the insect-based foods sector, which is why Riverberi is working plants into the mix. He says the nutritional profile of insects is rich: protein content is between 50 and 70 percent, they contain omega-3, -6, and -9 fatty acids, and a variety of minerals and vitamins. Supplementing with plants that require little processing to extract the desired proteins makes the formulation very cost-effective. Plants used to make the snacks include mung beans, seeds, and flours; cricket flour is the current choice for the insect portion.[Image Credit: © Bugsolutely Ltd]

Nestlé U.K. Steps Up DTC Activities With Delivery Partnership

May 29, 2020: 12:00 AM EST

Nestlé U.K. has joined forces with Deliveroo’s Essentials delivery platform so that stay-at-home British consumers can have a variety of its brands delivered to their door during the pandemic. Customers place orders via the Deliveroo app with deliveries available from 11 sites in Leeds, London, Manchester, and Nottingham. Other big food manufacturers that have turned to the direct-to-consumer (DTC) channel in recent months include PepsiCo rolling out new websites selling its snacks and drinks in the U.S., and Kraft Heinz launching an e-commerce operation (Heinz to Home) in the U.K. giving consumers a chance to buy its products. The move to DTC at least partly replaces lost revenue from the closure of some retail stores and most hospitality venues during the pandemic.[Image Credit: © Nestlé]

Nestlé Nigeria: “Too Early To Quantify” Impact Of COVID-19 On Business

Nestlé Nigeria Plc reported revenue of $194 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2020, slightly below the $196 million reported in the same period of 2019, according to the unaudited financial results posted on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) website.

Nestlé Philippines Expects Surging Demand To Ebb As Buying Power Sinks

May 5, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The current surging demand for its products is expected to be short-lived, Nestlé Philippines says, because many Filipino consumers have lost income because of the pandemic and the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ). In the near term, the company is ramping up production as it faces supply line shortages and a spurt in demand for food products among panic-buying consumers. The company had increased production to 80 percent from 60 percent in recent weeks after demand surged in March and April. Shipping delays, meanwhile, had caused a decrease in output. To address supply challenges, the company has put safety measures in place so that employees can report for work, and it is planning further ahead when ordering raw materials. To buoy demand, the company is considering adding free packs in products and increasing promotional strategies, an executive said.[Image Credit: © Nestle]

Q1 Profit Slides As Nestlé Pakistan Posts Hike In Revenues

April 30, 2020: 12:00 AM EST

Nestlé Pakistan posted healthy first quarter (January to March) revenues of $189 billion, a 2.6 percent increase over last year, despite COVID-19 lockdowns that severely impacted the sales of juices and water as well as products for the out-of-home channel. The Afghanistan border closure also had a major impact on exports. Despite the rise in revenues, net profit for the same period slid 33 percent because of higher financing costs, currency devaluation, higher input and energy costs, and the imposition of sales tax and federal excise duties on milk powder and beverages. In a statement, the company pledged to prioritize the health and wellbeing of its employees, foster business continuity, and support communities with relief efforts.[Image Credit: © Canon/Nestle]

CCEP Q1 Revenue Declines Four Percent

April 28, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Coca-Cola European Partners plc (CCEP) reported that FY 2020 first quarter revenue slid four percent from a year ago to $2.7 million. Challenging comparables, some customer disruption due to a planned pricing strategy, and the initial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic all played a part in driving comparable volumes for the period down four percent. Revenue per unit case increased 1.5 percent, thanks to favorable price and promotions offset by negative channel and pack mix. The company is reducing discretionary spending in trade marketing, promotions, merchandising, incentives, seasonal labor, travel, and meetings, representing a potential fiscal year cost reduction of $218 million to $272 million. CCEP is also delaying some discretionary capital expenditure, resulting in a 2020 capex of about $381 million.[Image Credit: © The Coca-Cola Company]

COVID-19 Bashes Coca-Cola Global Sales Volumes

April 21, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Coca-Cola reported flat first quarter revenues as global sales volumes slid 25 percent this month due to COVID-19 disruption. Q1 revenues were $8.6 billion, one percent less than the same period last year. Operating income declined by two percent to $2.38 billion. Unit case volumes of sparkling soft drinks declined two percent in the quarter, while juice, dairy and plant-based beverages were down six percent and tea and coffee volume declined six percent. The company said that volume at the end of February was growing by three percent – excluding China – and was on track to achieve its full-year 2020 targets. But disruption due to COVID-19 in global markets from March significantly impacted sales, as social distancing measures and quarantine orders were put in place by governments around the world.  The company expects continued reduction in away-from-home activity will have a “significant impact on second-quarter results.”[Image Credit: © THE COCA-COLA COMPANY]

Danone Surprises Market With Healthy First Quarter Financials

April 21, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Danone posted first quarter like-for-like net sales growth ahead of expectations at 3.7 percent to $6.8 billion, as consumers stockpile and increase their at-home consumption. The company withdrew its full-year financial guidance for 2020 owing to the lack of visibility caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The Waters business reported a drop in net sales of 6.8 percent on a like-for-like basic due to closures in food service. About 40 percent of the division’s sales are normally consumed away from home. Its Essential Dairy & Plant-Based (EDP) unit recorded strong performance by its plant-based brands, Alpro in Europe and Silk in North America, and its top essential dairy brands such as Actimel, Danone and Danette in Europe, and Horizon and Two Good in the U.S.[Image Credit: © Danone S.A.]

Kellogg’s Launches Jumbo SNAX, Pushing Cereal-Based Snacks

Kellogg’s is hoping to extend four of its cereals into snacks as ‘Jumbo SNAX’. It has taken four flavors, Froot Loops, Apple Jacks, Corn Pops and Frosted Flakes and is making them available in snackable form.

European Corn/Rice Miller Invests In Two-Year-Old Vegan Snack Start-Up

March 25, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
British snack company Cheeky P’s, which markets a line of vegan, gluten-free, protein- and fiber-rich ”beer snacks” made from roasted chickpeas, has secured an investment from European dry corn and rice miller Dacsa. The two-year-old company, founded by a brother-and-sister team originally from Malaysia, has also nailed down distribution deals with companies like Epicurium, which supplies health stores, convenience stores, farm shops, and pubs around the U.K. Co-founder Gregory Goh said the fresh cash would enable it to extend its product portfolio, grow the team, and expand to more international markets. Dacsa, a rice producer in Spain and Portugal, has nine production plants in six European locations.

Flavor And Color Trends That Will Impact The Snack Industry

March 9, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Industry experts like IRI (Chicago) have found that most snack eaters in the U.S. identify taste/flavor as the top purchase driver for snacks, followed by colors. Pure flavors like cheese and chocolate will always dominate, but snack makers should also be aware that consumers look for combinations and variety, “from sweet all the way to hot.” In fact, over the past few years, there have been 4,160 flavor combinations introduced, more than half of which saw dollar growth in 2018 versus 2017. Future snack flavor stars and trends may include: sweet and sour combos like that found in dragonfruit; tart, sour, and fermented flavors (think yuzu); and savory and sweet applications featuring cardamom. Vibrant and bold colors continue to trend forward in snack and baked goods. These include the tried and true yellows and oranges popular in crackers, and the aqua, blue, and purple colors found in the baked goods category, especially in frosting applications.

Key Trends That Are Shaping The Evolution Of The Snack Industry In Asia

March 9, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Several major trends – urbanization, industrialization, cultural expansion – are changing the way Asian consumers, especially Millennials, view snacking and are, in turn, changing the snacks industry. Rising living standards coupled with premiumization, meanwhile, are pushing younger consumers away from the tradition of three meals a day to the more flexible and accessible on-the-go snacking way of life. Other forces transforming the snacking landscape in Asia include: social media’s role in speeding the evolution and introduction of new snacks and flavors; accelerated food and beverage industry response to the demand for snacks that fit a busy yet simplified lifestyle; the rise of healthful, better-for-you, energizing snacks; and the emergence of “mindful snacking” that emphasizes sustainability, and ethical sourcing and production.

Snack Makers Tune Into The Buzz From Hot Pepper/Sour Flavor Combos

March 9, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Inspired by the fact that more chefs are pairing peppers with sour flavors – and Americans are looking for more complicated snack flavors – makers of chips, candy, sauces, and drinks are increasingly combining hot pepper flavors with sour ones to create snacks that pack a flavor punch. Snack makers producing spicy-sour – also known as “spicy pucker” – products include: PepsiCo’s Doritos brand (Flamin’ Hot Limón and Ruffles Lime & Jalapeño) and Lay’s brand (Flamin’ Hot Dill Pickle); Kettle Brand’s pepperoncini-flavored chips; Roaring Brands (Feast & Fury, recently added a creamy horseradish flavor); and Trader Joe’s (chili-and-lime chips).

Industry Experts Ask: Will The Current Success Of Sourdough Bread Endure?

February 25, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
According to Nielsen data, total bread sales in the United States have been stagnant since 2015, showing little to no growth leading up to 2020. The phenomenon has made it hard for smaller players to stay afloat and has led to industry consolidation among big players. But one corner of the bread industry has shown signs of a comeback: sourdough bread sales grew about 11 percent from 2015 to 2019 to over $325.9 million, and sourdough is becoming more popular at restaurants. Last year, sourdough bread was on 14.3 percent of restaurant menus, up from 11.6 percent 10 years earlier. A Grand View Research study saw the market value of sourdough jump from $298.7 million in 2014 to $2.4 billion in 2018. But, industry observers wonder, is this a solid and enduring trend, or a flash in the pan?[Image Credit: © sandid from Pixabay]

Innovation Helping General Mills Advance In An Improving Cereal Market

February 20, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Successful cereal innovations are helping General Mills grow and take market share. In the first half of fiscal 2020 the company had five of the top six cereal launches in the United States and it continues with new launches. It has introduced Trix Trolls cereal and is experimenting with premium products such as its Morning Summit cereal that has almonds as a first ingredient and retails for $13 a box in the club channel. CEO Jeffrey L. Harmening said its fiscal year-to-date retail sales were up 2% on the back of “innovation, great marketing and excellent in-store execution”. He pointed to compelling marketing ideas such as its Cheerios heart health campaign and Cinnamon Toast Crunch’s Cinnaverse campaign as examples of combining meaningful innovation with smart marketing. In broader comments, Harmening believes the US cereal market is improving and no longer declining, supported by improving macro and demographic trends with a return to growth in the number of households with kids and a stabilization in breakfast eaten-at-home versus away-from-home.

February 19, 2020: 12:00 AM EST



An amateur baker and chef from Raleigh, N.C., whose passion is art and cooking, spends her time creating flatbreads elaborately decorated with colorful landscapes and intricate garden scenes. Blondie and Rye, as she is known on Instagram, uses thinly sliced spring onion for stems, spheres of beetroot for flowers, shredded capsicum for grass, and cherry tomatoes as rosebuds. Her handiwork has attracted the attention of an army of amateur bakers, with close to 95,000 Instagram followers keeping track of her “spectacular” breads, pastries and pies. The creations have spurred a craze for creative baking on social media.[Image Credit: © Blondie + Rye (Hannah P.) from Instagram]

Kellogg’s Develops Fully Recyclable Stand-Up Pouch For Its Bear Naked Range

February 18, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Bear Naked’s Fully Recyclable Stand-Up Pouch Wins Packaging Award
Kellogg’s Bear Naked granola now uses the first fully recyclable stand-up barrier pouch made for food packaging that’s available nationwide. Development took over 18 months and required the collaboration of five partner companies. Bear Naked’s goal was to produce a stand-up pouch that met its specifications and could be recycled at a retail store, not sent to a special processing center as earlier packaging required. Developing flexible packaging that can be more easily recycled is challenging because of the multiple layers in the material that are often held together by adhesives that impair recycling. This issue was navigated by using a nine-layer material from Berry Global, called Entour, which leverages a technology from Dow called RETAIN. The pouch won a Silver Award in Sustainability in the Flexible Packaging Association’s 2020 FPA Achievement Awards.

The Search For A Healthful Whole-Grain Bread That Appeals To The Masses

February 18, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Bread makers who consider themselves purists – healthful ingredients only, no preservatives or other additives, no pre-slicing, no pan baking, and no plastic packaging – have had to deal with a harsh reality: the market often rejects what they’re selling. As Vermont baker Blair Marvin discovered, some compromise has been necessary though the goal – a soft, sliced, affordable, and healthful whole wheat bread – is still the goal. So Marvin and colleagues in a baking collective that is helped by the famous Bread Lab of Washington State University are working toward making a whole-grain loaf that’s familiar-looking and affordable enough to appeal to a mass audience. The result, dubbed “The Approachable Loaf,” is now made in 20 states, as well as in England, Canada, and Australia. Disguised as a standard-issue sandwich bread that kids will eat, the loaf contains fiber and other nutritious ingredients, but no chemical preservatives or additives (i.e., flavor enhancers or sugars), found in mass-produced whole-wheat breads.[Image Credit: © Wolfgang Eckert from Pixabay]

Nostalgia For Their Jewish Roots Draws Bay Area Entrepreneurs Into Baking

February 14, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Blame it on nostalgia for New York or Israel, or simply on a desire to launch a second career that harkens back to their early years. Whatever the reason, a number of entrepreneurs have opened (or re-opened) Jewish bakeries in the San Francisco Bay area recently. They include a kosher bagel shop in Berkeley; a bread bakery in San Leandro that specializes in making challah; and a home kitchen in Santa Clara that produces stretchy Yemeni flatbreads. New York native Sam Tobis, for example, moved to the Bay Area 12 years ago to attend UC Berkeley and decided to stay. Nevertheless, he longed for Jewish foods, ubiquitous in New York, and a connection to his roots. Three years ago he purchased Grand Bakery in Oakland, a long-running but now shuttered kosher bakery and has been evolving the 60-year-old legacy business, now a wholesaler, adding bagels as well as house-cured gravlax to the challah, hamentashen, and coconut macaroons that remain prominent offerings. Tobis may someday open a cafe that would expand Grand Bakery’s customer base beyond Jewish moms and rabbis.[Image Credit: © JAQ-WoJ from Pixabay]

A New Twist On An Old Jewish Pastry Arrives For Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2020: 12:00 AM EST



An Israeli-inspired bakery with four branches in New York City has been selling – yes, for Valentine’s Day – a red, gooey version of the traditional Jewish chocolate-filled pastry known as rugelach. The “roselach” at Breads Bakery are made with marzipan, rose water, and sprinkled with raspberry. Redolent of roses, the roselach was invented by an Israeli restaurateur who joined forces with a Turkish chef to honor the pagan-inspired holiday in America. Even though the roselach is a strictly Valentines-only treat, the hope is that the traditional chocolate version, made with high-quality ingredients and baked fresh daily, will sell well year-round. Meanwhile, the innovative roselach costs $36 for a box of a dozen in store, or $50 shipped. [Image Credit: © Breads Bakery]
