Allied says there are opportunities in the roll segment
UK firm Allied Bakeries has launched a high fiber white bread loaf and roll line under its Allinson brand to target huge opportunities in the healthier white segment, its brand manager says.

It has launched a high fiber 800g white bread loaf and high fiber white and whole meal rolls in four packs.

The UK firm has developed the breads using an ultra-fine wheat fiber to increase the fiber content to that of a whole meal product.

Allied Bakeries said the new product development (NPD) was prompted by consumer research that suggested a demand for tasty, healthy family options. It added that rolls have become increasingly popular given the trend of more in-home lunches and evening meals.

Guy Shepherd, category director at Allied Bakeries, said: “The healthier white segment presents a huge opportunity, which is why we’ve invested in not only the brand but developing our NPD. Our research shows that high fiber white is seen as innovative and unique. There currently isn’t anything else like this being produced by any other major branded bread manufacturer.”

“We’ve had positive feedback from consumers who like white bread but who also want the health benefits of whole meal. This loaf is genuinely new and different and will help to attract new buyers to the sector,”​ Shepherd said.

Marketing push

The NPD will be backed up with a £1m ($1.57m) marketing campaign including its first TV advert in 10 years, a full packaging re-design and refreshed website.

The campaign will promote the ‘wholesome and hearty’ qualities of the range, Allied Bakeries said.

Its packaging redesign uses a bright and colorful design that aims to make the brand stand out from other products on the shelf. The re-design has been rolled out across its entire range.

What is the difference in the quality of this product? Fiber is contained in the kernel of the wheat so what makes this loaf different from any full fiber loaf?
