Price Increases Inflate Value Of U.K.’s Bagged Snack Sales

December 17, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Higher production costs and fewer promotions are driving up the price of snacks in the U.K. The bagged snacks category made an extra $174 million over the past 12 months – a four percent increase – but volumes rose by just 1.8 percent. That means the 2.2 percent rise in average price was the main driver of that gain. The average price of Pringles, for example, is up by 10.3 percent. One factor behind these changes is higher production costs: the price of packaging, energy, deliveries – and ingredients such as oil and potatoes – is moving upwards. At KP Snacks, the price of its nuts brand is up an average four percent. KP seems to be bucking a trend, though: despite price increases, volumes are up 7.8 percent.

As Supply Costs Rise, Snack Maker Monitors Frito-Lay’s Pricing Tactics

December 17, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Like many businesses in the U.S., Better Made Snack Foods of Detroit feels the pinch of supply chain disruptions and inflated prices for potatoes, oil, and other ingredients during the pandemic. The company knows it has to hike prices at some point, but it is waiting to see how much Texas-based, market leader Frito-Lay raises prices on Ruffles and Lay's potato chips. "If you raise your price over what the major national brand is selling for, you're not going to be in a very good marketplace," said company President David Jones. "So we've got to see what the national leader is doing and then we follow right behind them." Better Made, which distributes snacks in 20 states, says prices have increased 20 percent for potatoes, 30 percent for seasonings, 20 to 30 percent for corrugated cardboard, and 158 percent per pound for cotton seed oil.

Belgian Baking Company Buys Stake In Good Crisp Company

December 17, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Boulder, Colo.-based better-for-you snacks startup, has sold a minority stake to Belgium’s Lotus Bakeries as part of a Series A funding round. Lotus, which makes waffles, biscuits, and snacks, invested in the business via its venture capital arm FF2032. The financing round included a returning investment from San Francisco-based VC firm CircleUp Capital Partners. Good Crisp, founded originally in Australia in 2015 and moved to the U.S. two years later, produces gluten- and allergen-free, clean-label potato chips without any artificial flavors; it recently added cheese balls to its portfolio. The products can be found in Walmart, Whole Foods Market, Kroger, and Wegmans.

Breaking Through India’s Snack Product Clutter Is No Easy Task For Start-Ups

December 15, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Food industry analysts in India say sustained profitability is tough for snack start-ups, but there is a demand-supply gap that new companies can leverage. There are plenty of packaged and healthy snacks on the market, so new brands try to rise above the clutter by straddling the indulgence-versus-health marketing message: “no chemicals or preservatives,” “baked instead of fried.” and “no added sugars” have become the buzzwords that attract buyers. Entry-level pricing also plays a role in luring consumers. “We want to democratize the better-for-you category with healthier snacking at an affordable premium positioning,” says Anuj Krishan, co-founder of Forbidden Foods. Other marketing ploys include free sampling at stores and alternate consumer outreach channels, like partnering with local sports, cultural, and lifestyle events.

ADM Spotlights “Snackification,” Other Snack Trends

December 15, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Chicago-based food ingredients company says the “snackification” movement (snacking vs. specific meals), which emerged before COVID-19, continues to grow as consumers focus on making better-for-you snack choices for themselves and their children. That means snacks that deliver nutrition and satiety with ingredients like whole grains, fiber, and protein. The company’s research arm found that 64 percent of households with children under the age of 18 revert to snacks to ensure sustained energy throughout the day. The vegan, vegetarian – or at least flexitarian – approach to eating has also taken hold, and plant-based will continue to be a major buzzword in 2022. Alternative proteins will account for 11 percent of the total protein market by 2035.

Sapientia Technologies Debuts Plant-Based Snack

December 14, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The company, a subsidiary of Eat Well Investment Group (Vancouver, Canada), has launched its better-for-you plant-based twists in 350 Federated Co-operatives Limited stores under the COOP Pure Brand. The plant-based snacks were created by Sapientia founder Eugenio Bortone, the inventor of the Twisted Cheeto. Sapientia says it created the plant-based twisted curls for consumers seeking healthier snack foods with increased protein and nutritional credentials. They are baked rather than fried, so they contain 30 percent less calories, as well as three-to four-times more protein, and four- to five-times fiber. The initial launch consists of Ketchup and Cheese flavors. Chili Lime and Mediterranean flavors will be available shortly.

Thailand’s "Ganja Appetit" Initiative Informs People About Edible Pot

December 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Food entrepreneurs in the Southeast Asian country are rapidly developing pot-infused food products, now that the government has removed most of the marijuana plant from the list of banned narcotics.  Leaves, stalks, stems, and roots – but not flowers and seeds – can now be used to make medicine, health products, food, and cosmetics. To help educate citizens about THC food products, a school in Bangkok known as TCDC Commons Seacon Square recently organized an exhibition titled "Ganja Appetit." One of the administrators of the school said “’Ganja Appetit' informed visitors about the legalization of cannabis in Thailand, how to make cannabis-infused food products, and the first steps entrepreneurs have to know." Among the new edibles are jelly, ice cream, sun-dried bananas, cookies, grilled fish chill paste, and fermented fish sauce.

Solina: Beneficial Snacking Is Replacing “Mindless Munching”

December 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The French company that specializes in customization of food ingredients for manufacturers says that consumer demand for more healthy and tasty snacks – and less “mindless munching” – requires food companies to do things much differently. That often means reformulation of current product lines to remove or lower fat, sugar and salt content, and development of better-for-you snacks that contain natural ingredients and deliver functional benefits. Solina says it is helping manufacturers accomplish this with a “four-pillar” approach: a chef approach for developing unique flavors; a technical approach to assure processability and minimum waste; a local approach that considers taste preferences and agility in sourcing; and a nutritional approach informed by knowledge of ingredients with nutritional or functional properties.

Former Vita Coco Execs Launch Sugar-Free Cereal

December 11, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Noting that the new sugar free, non-HFSS cereal brand is "closer nutritionally and price aligned to protein supplements," former Vita Coco brand and sales managers Kit Gammell and Jac Chetland named their brainchild Surreal. The product will debut in the U.K. with four flavors: Cocoa, Peanut Butter, Frosted, and Cinnamon, all with 13 grams of protein and five grams of net carbs per bowl (rsp: £6/210g) and made with such as tapioca starch and inulin, but no cereal grains. The brand plans to give out 30,000 bowls in a sampling campaign, and will begin filling orders by the end of December, with Amazon and a DTC launch in January. The cereal has attracted the attention of investors such as Proper founder Ryan Kohn, former Sir Kensington's CEO Mark Ramadan and entrepreneur Mervyn Davies.

Post Stresses Flavor, Healthy Ingredients In Great Grains Ad Campaign

December 9, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Lakeville, Minn.-based company says its new media campaign is designed to hold onto all of the Great Grains customers it acquired during the pandemic. The healthy and flavorful theme is one that Post Consumer Brands will evolve during 2022 under the “Recipe For Great” platform, the first major Great Grains campaign since 2016. According to the company, during the pandemic consumers were willing to pay more for premium cereals. Brand manager Joe Christenson said, “We had lots of people who reached out to us for the first time.” The first creative iteration of “Recipe For Great” is a 15-second video from the Barkley agency titled “The Beauty of the Harvest.” Post said dollar sales of Great Gains rose 8.7 percent in 2020 versus the previous year. From October of 2020 to October 2021, the brand was up 2.6 percent.

Kellogg's Tests New Packaging Technology For Corn Flakes Brand

December 4, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Battle Creek, Mich.-based cereals maker is testing Corn Flakes packs lined with paper in a "small number" of Tesco stores in the U.K. in January, with the results "helping to shape Kellogg's future packaging plans." According to the company, its scientists "worked to create paper-based inner packaging for its cereal that can survive the process of filling and sealing millions of bags in boxes of cereal produced in its factory and transporting them to retailers." Plastic inner liners are not widely accepted in curbside recycling. The move is in line with its “Wellbeing Manifesto” seeking to improve its food and packaging "so that it's better for people, the planet, and the community."

Nestlé Plans To Double Ecommerce Sales Over Next Three Years

Ecommerce, including direct-to-consumer and business-to-business-to-consumer (B2B2C) online sales, today accounts for about $12 billion of Nestlé’s total annual sales ($92 billion).

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.

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).

The Naked Market Raises $27.5M In Institutional Series A Round

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. The two-year-old company has launched five snack and food brands: Flock Chicken Chips, AvoCrazy, Project Breakfast, Rob’s Backstage Popcorn, and Beach House Bowls.

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.
