Food safety/standards in snacks and bakery

January 26, 2017

Navigating the quagmire of stringent regulations and product recalls isn’t a walk in the park as it requires a detailed knowledge of critically important hygienic conditions and strategies.

Bakery and snacks US market report

March 16, 2017

A healthy, convenient indulgence – that’s what consumers wanted in 2016 and that’s what is forecast to be one of the biggest drivers of NPDs in the snacks and bakery sector in 2017. Gluten-free is going mainstream; protein is the must-have fortification; sugar is the big no-no; and more traction is being given to clean labels.

Is grain-free the new gluten-free?

July 27, 2017

Grain-free may still be niche but it’s gaining traction among consumers who perceive it as the next step to better health. ‘Going completely grainless’ is becoming increasingly popular among consumers who are moving away from processed foods and incorporating natural ingredients, such as nuts, legumes and pulses, into their diets that boost their intake of proteins and minerals. The grain-free trend is an extension of the gluten-free trend, which is predicted to reach $4.35b by 2013 in the US, according to MicroMarketMonitor. We investigate further.

Brand/character licensing in snacking and bakery

November 2, 2017

Licensing is fast becoming a major factor in the success rate of a product. Studies conducted in the US and Germany over the past few years have noted how children significantly prefer the taste of foods that feature popular cartoon characters on the packaging. With films such as the new Star Wars commanding the cross-generational global franchise top spot, it seems as if the sky is the limit. BakeryAndSnacks will go where no man has gone before to seek out new ideas.
