Chinese Snack Company’s IPO Underscores The Country’s Growing Demand For Snacks

June 8, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The IPO filing by Henan-based spicy snack maker Weilong Delicious Global Holdings is a clear indicator of how important snacks have become in the Chinese food industry.

Pipsnacks Founders Remain Focused On Salty Corn Snacks – For Now

June 8, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The co-founder of the Brooklyn, N.Y., maker of Pipcorn puffed cheese snacks and crackers says new product development is still focused on bagged salty corn-based snacks. Jennifer Martin says “the sky’s the limit” when it comes to high-quality corn-based salty snacks, mainly because many classic nostalgic snacks – made with GMOs and artificial ingredients – could be replicated “in a natural way.” But in the long term the company has a lot of other ideas, completely outside of salty snacks, that focus on a high-quality corn ingredient. And, Martin notes, that there are other seeds, ancient grains perhaps, that are worth looking at. “We’re not tied to corn,” she says. “We’re corn today, but there’s definitely an opportunity to grow outside of corn in the future.”

Snacks Increasingly Cater To Followers Of All Types Of Diets

June 7, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Data from SPINS and New Hope Network show that any of the popular diets – gluten-free, vegan, keto, paleo, etc. – have corresponding snacks. Diet-specific snacks aren’t a new phenomenon, but a couple of “overwhelming and overlapping trends” are driving their growth. Label claims such as gluten-free, organic, non-GMO and vegan are driving sales, along with cleaner labels that highlight allergen-free and high protein ingredients. Consumers also are seeking products that are free from artificial sweeteners and colors and offer unusual flavors. Among the players: Earnest Eats (snacking avocados); Rind Snacks, (crispy thin-cut fruit chips with the peel on); Elma Farms (steamed and marinaded asparagus snacks); and New York-based Union (crunchy charcuterie chips in genoa, sopressata, and chorizo varieties that promote regenerative sourcing).

Indian Consumers Increasingly Demand Clean-Label Snacks

June 7, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
“No additives or preservatives” is a number one claim associated with clean-label snacks in India. Clean-label snacks have grown from 11 percent of total snack launches in the 12 months to January 2017, to 19 percent between February 2020 and January 2021, according to Mintel. Moreover, as products with “free-from” claims on packages raise consumer awareness about specific ingredients to avoid, the demand for such formulations is likely will rise. Prior to the pandemic, hunger and energy were the key drivers of snacking, but not anymore. Today it's the search for comfort, stress-reduction, health benefits, and clean ingredients that moves consumers. The study conducted among 3,000 Indian adults shows how brands can emphasize naturalness and no “nasties” as a means to justify snacking and remove guilt.

Internal Nestlé Report Admits 60 Percent Of Its Mainstream Foods Are Unhealthy

June 2, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The report, which excluded categories such as baby formula, pet food, coffee, and medical nutrition, said come categories of the foods and drinks included in the 60 percent “will never be healthy” no matter what changes are made. Nevertheless, the company has worked for years to improve the nutritional footprint of its products, reducing sugar and sodium content in its products, and adding ingredients such as whole grain, protein, fiber, and micronutrients. These efforts co-exist alongside a guiding company principle: a healthy diet means finding a balance between well-being and enjoyment. In other words, there must be room for indulgent foods, consumed in moderation.

Mondelēz Australia Sees Benefits To Its Snack Business From COVID-19

June 1, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The pandemic’s creation of a work-at-home culture in Australia certainly benefited the snack industry in general and Mondelēz in particular, according to the company’s State of Snacking report for 2020, based on a survey of more than 500 consumers. Significant was the finding that consumers, particularly younger ones, snacked more frequently during the lockdowns. Ninety-one percent of adults said they are either snacking more or at the very least the same amount; 37 percent said they have been snacking more during the pandemic than before it. Seventy percent of Millennials and centennials (Gen Z) especially say they prefer snacks over meals. As to snack choices, 58 percent said they pay attention to the types and content of snacks eaten, and 64 percent maintain control over the portion sizes eaten.

Asia Pacific Region Touts Insects As Sustainable Protein Source

May 31, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Governments and food industry players in the region are increasingly enthusiastic about the insect-based food industry as an alternative protein source that is both healthy and sustainable. Globally, the edible insect industry is expected to increase in value to hit more than $1 billion by 2023, with more than 2,100 insect species eaten as food in countries worldwide. In the Asia Pacific region, research analysts predict this market to hit $270 million by 2024. South Korea is a leader in the region, thanks to laws and frameworks already in place governing the development of the sector. As a result of the government’s investment – including its Third Comprehensive Plan For Nurturing The Insects and Sericulture Industry – farmers and food firms involved in the insect-food industry increased 280 percent to 2,535 between 2015 and 2019. Other countries actively building an insect-based food industry include Australia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia.

When Boston-based allergy-friendly 88Acres bakery makes its cinnamon-flavored Seed+Oat Bar Thins, a popular free snack on JetBlue airlines flights, the edges are trimmed to ensure clean lines.

Macro Snacks Founder Rebrands To Escape Niche Market Shackles

May 26, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Thanks to an SKU Accelerator program, the founder of the Charlotte, N.C.-based snack chip start-up realized that rebranding was necessary to fully scale his product. Justin Wiesehan says a lot of customer research among customers and non-customers convinced him that being a diet-focused, niche product was very restrictive. He also found that repeat customers were using the snack as an alternative to less-healthy options. As a result, Wiesehan hopes the new name – HA!, for Healthy Alternative – along with bolder, louder packaging, will land the chips on grocers' shelves next to familiar crunchy snack foods. Each of the seven flavors of HA! chips is gluten-free – all but Pizza Pie are vegan friendly – and each bag contains 11 to 12 grams of protein. The products are available online and soon in retail grocery stores.

Mintel: Being Healthy Is No Longer Just About Losing Weight

May 25, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Bakers and snack makers in the BFY arena need to be aware of how the pandemic has shifted consumer dietary concerns and behaviors if they want to take advantage of emerging opportunities, market researcher Mintel says. No longer is being healthy just about losing weight or exercising. The data show that consumers’ top priorities now center on strengthening the immune system, managing stress, improving sleep quality, and eating more healthful foods. And, issues such as sustainability and contributing to a healthy society are now part of the BFY mindset. Products that promote wellness – clean label, natural, reduced sugar or salt, etc. – are even more important since the onset of the pandemic. Lastly, there is an opportunity for bakers and snack makers to introduce foods that promote mental and emotional health.

May 25, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Mexican snack brand, owned by Grupo Bimbo business unit Barcel, is branching out beyond its mouth-singeing corn chips lineup into popcorn, chips, and other fiery salty snacks.

Takis first expanded beyond tortilla snacks with the introduction of Takis Hot Nuts in October 2020.

Federal Judge Certifies Plaintiff Classes In KIND Advertising Suit

May 25, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Despite the lack of a uniform definition of the term “natural,” especially as it applies to foods, a federal judge in the Southern District of N.Y. has certified three classes of plaintiffs in three states who allege that KIND LLC, maker of eight brands of BFY snack bars, deceptively marketed several products as “all natural” and “non-GMO” even though they purportedly contain synthetic and genetically modified ingredients. According to an article in the National Law Review, the decision by Judge William H. Pauley III was “somewhat surprising, given the deep reservoir of class certification decisions finding that, where plaintiffs fail to establish a controlling definition for a key term or phrase in the challenged advertisement, individual issues predominate and class certification should be denied.” Pauley found, nevertheless, that the definitions cited by the plaintiffs weren’t all that different from one another. The FDA has declined to adopt a formal definition of the term “natural.”

Utz Brands Partners With Ferrara To Fill Snack Variety Pack Void

May 24, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Hanover, Pa.-based chips and pretzels maker is joining with Ferrara (Chicago, Ill.), a related company of the Ferrero Group, to respond to growing consumer demand for snack food variety packs. More than 60 percent of consumers prefer sweet and salty varieties in a multi-pack, but only 16 percent of available multi-packs offer that variety. Ferrara and Utz say their work together will focus on filling that gap.

Glanbia Nutritionals Says Its Ingredients Help Snack Makers Stay On Trend

May 24, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Chicago-based food ingredients company says market data support the use of a couple of its protein products by snack makers. For example, while the plant-based protein segment is considered a niche market compared to dairy-based protein, consumer interest and demand are growing exponentially, thanks to more diversified diets, consciousness of sustainability issues, animal welfare issues, and allergen avoidance. In response, the company has created BarHarvest Pea Protein, which adds protein fortification and is an allergen-free, gluten-free, kosher protein ingredient. Still, consumers in some countries are loyal to dairy, so Glanbia created whey protein concentrate solutions OptiSol 1005 and 1007, which are heat stable even in high processing conditions.

BFY Cereal Start-Up Focuses Heavily On Brick-And-Mortar Retail

May 23, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Like every food and beverage maker over the past 14 months, Three Wishes breakfast cereal faced daunting marketing challenges brought on by the pandemic. But the developer of the product, a mom picky about the diet of her young child, stuck to her guns, mostly steering clear of ecommerce and direct-to-consumer. The company doubled down on brick-and-mortar retail grocers and saw a huge payoff. Three Wishes says it went "from zero to multi-millions in sales" in the last year thanks to national retail accounts like Sprouts, Whole Foods Market, and Wegmans. The brand plans to have its cereal on the shelves of as many as 2,000 stores by the end of 2021.  A serving of Three Wishes cold cereal contains eight grams of plant-based, vegan protein, making it a grain-free, nutrient-dense, clean ingredient cereal – in cinnamon, honey, unsweetened, cocoa, fruity, and frosted flavors – that tastes good to kids and adults.

May 14, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The company also promised to reduce salt in children’s cereals by 20 percent as part of a ten-year plan to make its products healthier.

Ingredia Says Its Clean Label Dairy Proteins Benefit Cheese Snack Makers

May 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The French dairy ingredients company (Arras) is convinced that the growing consumer focus on health, naturality, and sustainability is driving innovation in the cheese market, including in the snack segment. Although considered to be an indulgent food product, cheese is perceived by consumers as a healthy snacking option because of its high protein and calcium content. Cheese offers many possibilities for innovation, including in taste, format, texture, and flavor. Ingredia’s clean label dairy proteins provide a way for snack manufacturers to develop healthy and creamy cheese concepts. “Cheese products can help consumers to meet their dietary needs; for instance, by fortifying the recipe with iron, by adding ayurvedic spices or gut-friendly cultures,” an Ingredia representative says.

Freeze-Dried Fruits Offer Plenty Of Benefits To Snack, Baked Goods Makers

May 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Because they meet consumer demands for clean label snacks and baked goods with pleasing taste and texture, freeze-dried fruits are a solid ingredient choice, according to natural ingredients supplier Paradise Fruits by Jahncke. Among the advantages offered by freeze-dried fruits: the free-flowing freeze-dried powders are easy to dose and therefore cost effective; they boost flavors and provide a natural colorant; they are low in moisture and do not impact other ingredients; they have a long shelf life; and they retain most of the nutritional benefits of fresh fruits, including vitamins, minerals and nutrients, and are low in sugar.

Spanish Snackmaker Hits A Home Run With Its Artichoke Chyps

May 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Though based in Murica, Spain, Cynara’s reach is global, and that includes Traverse City, Mich., where Melissa Elms serves as the U.S. sales director. The latest product from Cynara is Artichoke Chyps, which “are flying off virtual store shelves since their introduction in January of this year.” Gluten-free, Non-GMO certified, vegan, plant-based, and low in calories and carbs, Artichoke Chyps are more expensive than potato chips or other salty snacks because artichokes cost more to grow and harvest. Elms says a 1.76-ounce bag retails for between $5.99 and $7.99. They are sold in four- and eight-packs on Amazon and on natural- and organic-food online retailer Thrive Market.

Carbon Score Certification Is Gaining Traction In Food, Beverages

May 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
As the persistent pandemic stokes consumer interest in sustainable diets, food and beverage carbon labeling soon may hold more sway with consumers than other popular certifications. Labeling with a carbon score attracts consumers who want to know how much carbon was used in the production of an item: Net zero? 25 percent reduced? “That is the next phase,” says one industry observer. Brands that move quickly to add carbon labeling will appeal to consumers who are gravitating toward products with lower climate impact. Food and beverage companies already using, or exploring carbon labeling, include: Horizon Organic; Post Holdings’ subsidiary Bright Future Foods (Airly Oat Cloud Crackers); Maple Leaf Foods (carbon zero plant-based protein brands); Upfield (Imperial and Country Crock); Quorn Foods; Unilever, Mondelēz International, and Oatly.

Barnana Upcycles Unsellable Brazilian Bananas Into A Profitable Snack

May 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Founded by a former professional triathlete from Brazil who wasn’t happy with the available sport snacks, the San Diego-based snack company makes its products with bananas and plantains that can't be exported internationally to supermarkets because of size or ripeness. Caue Suplicy, 42, launched Barnana in 2012 after a trip to Brazil when he noticed that local banana farmers were tossing up to 20 percent of their stock. The initial upcycles products were sold in airports, at convenience stores, at LinkedIn, Google, and Facebook offices – “all disappeared overnight.” The company’s dehydrated plantain and banana snacks – tortilla chips, plantain chips, banana bites, etc. – are available in a variety of flavors online and at supermarkets across the U.S.

May 12, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Kathleen King recently announced an investment in the better-for-you snack brand Chasin' Dreams Farms, launched in 2019 by Sydney Chasin, whose goal was to disrupt the U.S. snacking space with a healthier option made from popped sorghum, an ancient grain sourced from regenerative farms in the Midwest U.S. Chasin’ Dreams Farms markets three varieties of its snack, in cocoa, cinnamon, and sweet & salty flavors in six-packs of one-ounce bags for $14.99.

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.
