Ancients Grains Provide Marketing Opportunity For Breakfast Cereal Makers

May 6, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Breakfast cereal companies looking to differentiate their products from a crowded market should look to ancient grains for inspiration. It’s an idea whose time has come, because ancient grains like sorghum, millet, amaranth. and teff have started appearing in ready-to-eat cereal. Other possibilities include buckwheat, which offers texture and gluten-free benefits to pancakes and waffles, and quinoa. A marketing exec at Ardent Mills notes that ancient grains have proven to be “extremely versatile in breakfast applications, both cooked as whole grains or milled into flour.” Ardent’s Don Trouba says quinoa flour, flakes, and blends, for example, are perfect for hot breakfast cereals, granola, multi-grain blends, and toppings on breads, bagels, bars, and crackers.

Severe Nut Allergy Leads To Creation Of Seed-Based Snacks

May 4, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
An acute reaction to eating nuts that landed Nicole Ledoux’s future husband in the ER led her to develop safe-to-eat allergen-free seed bar snacks. The eventual result was the launch of Allston, Mass.-based 88 Acres, which originally marketed a line of snack bars made with pumpkin, sunflower, and flax seeds. They later added dense seed butters – pumpkin, vanilla spice sunflower, and dark chocolate sunflower. The company now has two new lines: Seed' Nola, like granola, but made instead with abundant clusters of seeds and gluten-free oats in flavors such as Triple Berry Blend, Ginger Apple, and Double Chocolate Sea Salt. The products are available at Whole Foods Market locations and at 88acres.com.

Whisps Snacks: A Leader In The New Baked Cheese Snack Category

May 4, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The idea for a 100 percent cheese-based snack crisp took root within the food innovation team at Schuman Cheese, a New York importer of Italian cheeses. And now, according to Forbes magazine, Whisps Snacks are “one of the most popular snacks on grocery shelves and the leader in a new category that they helped create.” The secret to the brand’s success, says CEO Ilana Fischer, is not just the quality cheeses and the fairly simple cooking process – basically baked parmesan or cheddar – but the passionate flavor development and aggressive marketing/distribution program. The keto-friendly, gluten-free, low carb, high-protein snacks are available at most grocery retailers and online in nine flavors. The two-ounce bags come in several variety and multi-pack formats. Four-packs are available on Amazon for about $15.00; discounted subscriptions are also an option.

Kerry: Consumers Looking For New Flavors In “Snackification” Trend

May 4, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Ireland-based food ingredients specialist says interesting snack flavors are emerging from the “snackification” trend as consumers in North America, Latin America, Europe, and EMEA seek variations and elaborations on basic sweet and savory offerings. Europeans, for example, often seek out Asian favorites wasabi and sriracha, while Americans explore flavors such as Irish cream and Korean BBQ. The pandemic has increased consumer interest in “flavors with a healthy halo association:” ginger, mint, kombucha, hemp, ginseng, reishi, maca, goji berry and basil. Kerry identified five emerging flavor trends: seasonality, enticing eats, taste exploration, novel flavors, and acceptable sweetness, “each a completely separate concept yet intertwined.”

Taking A Cue From Beverages, Botanicals Appear More And More In Snacks

April 29, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The use of botanical extracts in beverages continues to grow, whether in sparkling drinks or bottled water. But botanicals have begun to extend beyond beverages into functional snacks, thanks in part to the growing 'food as medicine' consumer notion, according to TeaSquares (Chicago, Ill.) founder Jordan Buckner. One company, B.T.R. Bars, makes a line of functional bars using ingredients like ashwagandha and other adaptogens. But snack brands at this stage should put less emphasis in their marketing on functional claims, and instead use broad language such as “recharge,” “focus,” and “energize.” Or, they should focus on botanical flavor cues, as bar company Humming Hemp does, highlighting botanical flavors such as lavender, pistachio, and blueberry in its products. But as the category grows, consumer curiosity will grow. Shoppers will wonder, for example, just what exactly are the efficacious doses of botanical ingredients in snacks?

NPD Group: Sadness, Depression Solidly Linked To Snacking Surge

April 28, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Chicago-based industry researcher’s new report on snacking describes the close relationship between mood and the surge in snacking during the pandemic. The average U.S. consumer ate 37 percent more snack foods and treats while feeling sad or depressed during the pandemic than they did in 2019. Being bored followed closely, increasing snacking by 33 percent. In addition, consumers tended to eat more snack foods and treats when they were cranky, stressed, anxious, calm, and relaxed. Snack food consumption declined when consumers were feeling rushed, happy, good, tired, and just normal or neutral, said NPD, which suggested that the snack food and sweets industries need to keep a keen eye on the mental state of consumers during changing times.

If It’s Regenerative, And Organic, It’s Better For You

April 26, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Though regenerative agriculture has been around for centuries – think “crop rotation” – the term has now been married to the increasingly popular concept of organic farming, resulting in yet another reason to charge premium prices for some foods. Not to worry, though, because an IBM study found that sixty percent of consumers are willing to change shopping habits to reduce environmental impact. Realizing that, companies with products from booze to sunflower oil to snacks have jumped on the regenerative bandwagon, passing the increased costs on to shoppers. An example in the snack segment is regenerative entrepreneur Emily Griffith, founder of Lil Bucks, a Chicago snack company trying to build a market for regenerative buckwheat with a snack one writer dubbed “granola meets birdseed.” The idea behind it, and other regenerative foods, is: if it’s better for the planet, it’s better for you, even if it costs more.

April 23, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
A collaboration between EverGrain (Anheuser-Busch) and Bright Future Foods (Post Holdings) positions the companies for a push into climate-friendly snacking. Nielsen recently found that nearly half of U.S. consumers are likely to adjust shopping to meet environmental standards, putting their dollars where their values are. Bright Future Foods’ first product launch, Airly Oat Cloud Crackers – touted as the first ever climate-positive snack – is made with oats, which the company says have a negative carbon footprint. EverGrain – created to find uses for the spent grain from AB’s brewery processes – has two product lines that can be used across a range of applications, such as the plant-based barley milk line Take Two. Additional products are slated to hit the market later this year.

The new incarnation of Shreddies breakfast cereal – called The Simple One – has only four ingredients, all of whose nutritional credentials are green under the U.K.’s traffic light system. The ingredients are whole grain wheat, fruit purée, date syrup, and “a pinch” of salt.

Bruized Turns Imperfect Produce Into Snacks, Other Food Items

April 20, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Canadian start-up’s dual mission is to reduce food waste while producing healthy snacks and other food items. Monique Chan, who witnessed food waste while working in restaurants and at farmers markets, launched Bruized to inform people about food waste and sell food items made from upcycled, imperfect produce. The top seller is a dehydrated granola made from carrot, beet, and pear juice pulp sourced at a juice bar. The pulp would be thrown away, but it’s still rife with fiber and other nutrients. The “pulp crunch” is sweetened with ripe bananas sourced from a local shop when they start to get spotty. Dehydrated “second grade” apples from a local farm round out the flavors.

Insect-Based Snack Maker Crické Rebrands

April 14, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The challenge that London branding agency Midday was given by Crické was two-fold: come up with a new name, market positioning, and identity – and smash an “ancient taboo” about eating insects. The new identity – Small Giants – is still about gourmet crackers made with cricket flour. But the packaging and marketing message are bolder and brighter, featuring “a loud color palette, a bold personality and an orchestra of oversized charming crickets” on the packs. Midday admits the rebrand goes "big on weirdness" and changes "yuck to yum." But the Small Giants team sees itself as powerful changemakers encouraging consumers to think again about insect snack treats.

Other new snacks include Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Bars, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, and Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups.

As Pandemic Loses Steam, Snack Innovation Will Shift Into High Gear

April 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Demand for snacks that promise comfort, new experiences, and wellness will drive snacking innovation this year – after a year of lackluster new product activity – as the U.S. ambles toward herd immunity from COVID-19 and the reopening of economies. Research firm IRI Worldwide says 2021 promises to be a “blockbuster year” for snacking innovation after 2020 saw drastically fewer new products. Last year’s near overnight shift to staying at home and repeated lockdowns helped drive dollar sales of snacking up 79 percent. But products designed for on-the-go and smaller pack sizes saw sales fall slightly with units down one percent and volume down 0.3 percent among total core snacks compared to a five percent and 10 percent increase in total store units and volume respectively. As more people become vaccinated and economies reopen, sales of on-the-go items and smaller pack sizes will pick back up, along with new product launches.

State Grant Helps Idaho Potato Industry Apply New Chip Frying Technology

April 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The $292,000 grant from the Idaho Department of Commerce is helping scientists at Boise State University and the Boise-based Food Physics Group introduce pulse electric field (PEF) technology to the state’s potato chip and snack food industry. The technology enables snack makers to fry potato chips at a lower temperature and with less oil. PEF technology reduces sugars and amino acids in potatoes, ultimately reducing acrylamide – a possible carcinogen – in the high-temperature production of potato chips. Idaho Global Entrepreneurial Mission (IGEM) grants serve as a bridge for university researchers to collaborate with Idaho businesses to further economic opportunities in the state.

Pan’s Mushroom Jerky Goes Big Time After Shark Tank Success

April 12, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The original marketing strategy of the Portland, Ore.-based maker of shiitake mushroom jerky, launched in 2018 with a family recipe from Malaysia, was definitely grassroots: “knocking on doors,” emailing, and phoning independent retailers, co-ops, and small businesses offering samples. But it was an appearance on the TV show Shark Tank – and Mark Cuban’s eventual investment – that kicked the company into overdrive. Cuban’s team advised the small company – ten employees at the time – on D2C communications strategy; assisted with marketing strategy including SEO, advertising and email marketing; and introduced it to wholesale accounts. The company now has 30 employees and its products are on store shelves in more than 900 U.S. retailers, including Whole Foods Market, Ralph’s, Mom’s Market and Natural Grocers, and sold online through Thrive Market, Hive, Amazon, and Purple Carrot.

Eat Real Tries Again To Enter Chinese Market

April 12, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The U.K.-based maker of healthy snacks – hummus and lentil chips, quinoa puffs, etc. – has been successful at distributing globally. But it ran into a snag when it tried marketing in China two years ago. The company was working with three different distributors, and sold its products via online channels such as Tmall. But the Chinese distributors sold the snacks under three different names, confusing consumers and sparking a price war. The company eventually abandoned the market last year. Now, after reorganizing its business strategy and brand positioning for China, the firm expects to enter the country within the next months. It will bring in only six SKUs, instead of 20, and work with a single distribution partner.

Increasingly, Acquisition Targets In Snack Industry Are Focused On BFY, Plant-Based

April 12, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Private equity firms and strategic buyers are getting very picky about who they consider prime targets for a snack or food industry deal. Along with animal-free supply chains and low-carbon packaging, nutritious ingredients matter to health- and eco-conscious snack shoppers, so they matter to dealmakers. Whether a granola bar contains milk-derived whey or pea protein could mean the difference between an average multiple and one with "flex," says one investment banker. A significant example is Swedish beverage company Oatly’s oat milk product. It avoids the carbon emissions of factory farming, and it’s vegan – “the holy duo in a market growing secularly toward health and social consciousness.” The company’s IPO is reportedly heading toward a $5 billion valuation less than a year after a July funding round pegged it nearer $2 billion – an "extraordinary" level, said a partner at Blue Point Capital.

SnackMagic Adjusts It Marketing Strategy

April 9, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The New York-based build-your-own-snack-box service, whose business took a hit when the pandemic closed many offices, managed to stay afloat and even make a profit in 2020. It received a vote of confidence recently in the form of a $15 million Series A financing round led by Craft Ventures, with Luxor Capital also participating. The company will use the funding to continue growing its existing business, and to extend into gifting categories beyond chocolates, chips, hot sauces, and other areas like alcohol, meal kits, and non-food items. There’s also the possibility of expanding into areas like corporate gifting, marketing and consumer services, and analytics coming out of its sales.

Mondelēz-Grenade Deal: Another Sign Of Big Chocolate’s Spread Into Healthy Snacks

April 1, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
In 2019, Mondelēz passed up a chance to buy U.K. protein snack bar brand Grenade. But, late last month, and following other major Big Chocolate acquisitions of healthy snack companies like KIND (Mars) and Eat Natural (Ferro), Mondelēz bought a majority interest in Grenade for £200 million ($276 million). Why the reversal? According to a Rothschild analyst, in two years Grenade grew dramatically and moved from a purely sports nutrition brand to the mainstream, where it has become a category leader. Under Mondelēz, Grenade has the potential to grow much more, and continue to take share away from traditional chocolate countline bars. Another observer noted the “perfect timing” of the deal: Grenade was reaching a saturation point in the U.K., and Mondelēz can now ramp up distribution worldwide. A significant positive sign for Mondelēz was the fact that Grenade sold well during the pandemic, thanks to its entrenched ecommerce audience.

Utz Brands Says Its Healthier Potato Chips Are Catching On

March 31, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Hanover, Pa.-based snack company has been rebranding and developing Boulder Canyon potato chips since it acquired the brand four years ago. The company says the work is paying off, as more shoppers choose snacks with healthier ingredients, such as the avocado oil used to cook the Boulder Canyon chips. Utz's lineup of healthy snacks includes Veggie Chips, Half Naked Popcorn, and potato chips cooked in olive oil and avocado oil. In its recent earnings report, the company reported a “significant” increase in new buyers and higher repeat-purchase rates over the past year. Utz plans to grow sales and reach new customers in 2021 by increasing its digital advertising spend by 60 percent and potentially more, CEO Dylan Lissette told CNBC. Social media and digital ads do well in contrast to having one commercial that runs through the year “and realizing it didn't really give you what you needed.”
