CLIF CELEBRATES FEMALE ATHLETES WITH NEW PACKAGING

For the first time in its 28-year history, CLIF BAR® will replace the iconic climber on the most popular flavours of its CLIF BAR packaging with real-life trailblazers – six women athletes representing six different sports. This exciting change celebrates the incredible athletes who require sustained energy to push boundaries and go farther in their discipline.

CLIFBAR_SUSTAINED_LakeyPeterson

This limited-edition packaging will flow through to Australia and New Zealand during the months of July – September 2020 and will be available throughout 2020 while supplies last.

The six athletes, Venus Williams, Megan Rapinoe, Ashima Shirashi, Jordyn Barratt, Lakey Peterson, and Katerina Nash are world champions, Olympians, and Olympic hopefuls who lead with integrity in their communities. The sports they represent range from traditional events like cycling, tennis and soccer, to newer sports like skateboarding, surfing, and climbing.

“To see myself on a CLIF BAR is amazing,” says two-time World Cup Champion Megan Rapinoe.

“It would have meant so much to me as a kid to see a woman being celebrated for living her truth and chasing her dream. I hope it inspires the next generation to keep pushing us forward. My training requires dedication, and a ton of energy, so I love that CLIF BARs taste great and give me the sustained energy I need to power through. I’m so proud to represent a brand that supports me and aligns with my values.”

CLIFBAR_SUSTAINED_VenusWilliams

“It’s such an honour to be featured on a CLIF BAR along with these other incredible female athletes,” says seven-time Grand Slam singles champion and entrepreneur Venus Williams.

“This is the perfect example of women supporting each other and celebrating their successes in sports, in business, and in life. From an early age I have always been mindful about what I put into my body, so I love that I can grab a CLIF BAR and get the right mix of protein, fat, and carbs to sustain my energy levels for practice, training, and everything I want to accomplish each day.”

CLIFBAR_SUSTAINED_JordynBarratt

“I created CLIF BAR, the ultimate energy bar, to serve all types of and fuel their favorite sports,” says Clif Bar & Company founder and co-CEO Gary Erickson.

“Today, our bars are eaten by everyone from the elite athletes on our new packaging to everyday athletes playing pickup basketball or challenging themselves on a long hike. While I’ve never been a professional athlete myself, I’m inspired by those at the pinnacle of their sport, and we hope by featuring these six women on our new packaging that we can continue to inspire athletes at all levels.”

CLIFBAR_SUSTAINED_MeganRapinoe

Born on a Bike™ and made for athletes of every stripe, CLIF performance energy foods are purposely crafted with the right nutrition to sustain your energy and power you through adventures big or small.

The idea for a better performance bar was born during a 175-mile bike ride. Nearly 30 years later, CLIF BAR® remains the ultimate energy bar, fueling athletes with an ideal mix of nutritious, sustainably sourced ingredients.

THE POWER OF THE BRAGG BRAND

Bragg Live Food Products is one of the oldest and most trusted health and wellness brands and the world’s top producer of apple cider vinegar (ACV). 

Founded in 1912 by renowned health advocate Paul Bragg as a way to provide products to help people live more vibrantly, the Bragg company has consistently provided products that reflect a commitment to supporting a simpler path to healthier living. 

For decades, Paul, and his daughter-in-law, Patricia, have been promoting the benefits of apple cider vinegar and their broad portfolio of other health-focused food and dietary products including seasonings, dressings, olive oil and ready-to-drink beverages. 

There’s a century of time-tested wellness benefits inside every Bragg product. Authentic “real food” formulas they’ve perfected to help your customers transform their lives, one day at a time.

BRAGG APPLE CIDER VINEGAR – A WORLD MARKET LEADER

An authentic and storied brand, Bragg has a highly loyal, multi-generational following in the health and wellness space.

Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar is the most well-known product in the range and an institution in itself. For many people, Bragg is the only choice when it comes to selecting ACV.

Most Bragg users express unwavering loyalty. If Bragg isn’t on your shelf, 59% of shoppers will leave and purchase elsewhere, rather than buy another brand. Plus, sales for Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar are greater than all other brands combined (including all private labels).*

For years, the company has been enjoying a dominant position in the high-growth apple cider vinegar category globally and a long and successful history with its range of healthy products.

It’s the obvious choice for ACV and the range is a must-have for your pantry aisle.

KATY PERRY JOINS BRAGG

You may have seen Katy Perry holding a bottle of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar on social media lately….While it may seem like an unexpected match, Katy Perry’s connection to Bragg goes way back.

“My mother made me drink it every day, but now it’s a staple for me.” Her mum also got to know Patricia Bragg. “She invited her to our church when I was little—and Patricia bought me my first guitar when I was 13.”

Katy Perry and fiance, Orlando Bloom are now co-owners of the company, helping Bragg steer it for a new century. 

“I’m here to help reeducate people on how to use it,” Perry says. “I’m deeply familiar and aligned with Patricia’s mission to make the world a healthier and better place, and I am so honoured to have the opportunity to be a part of the team that will bring the magic of the brand to a new generation of consumers.”

WHAT’S NEXT FOR BRAGG?

The Bragg brand was acquired by investors mid last year with the focus to drive growth and expand the reach of this trusted health and wellness brand.

With the new investors in her company injecting a modern flair, Patricia Bragg, 90, said she hopes her products will “reach millions more people worldwide.”

New CEO, Linda Boardman says she is optimistic about the future of Bragg, which she says will forge forward using:

  • Consumer education
  • Retailer education
  • Product innovation

So keep an eye out for innovative new products, engaging consumer-focused campaigns, retailer support and updated packaging through Unique in the near future!

Bragg is definitely a big deal now….but you’ll be foolish not to establish yourself as a Bragg retailer now once you see what they have coming soon!

If you’d like to become a stockist of this iconic brand, make sure you create a wholesale account with us here. If you are already a retailer with us, simply order your stock via our online store anytime.

RXBAR: AN IDEAL FIT FOR TODAY’S SNACK ENTHUSIASTS

According to Roy Morgan research, nearly 9 in 10 Australian adults eat packaged snacks each week. 54.7% of which consume at least one healthy snack in an average 7 day period. That’s a lot of opportunity for snack sales!

In fact, a total of 62.5% of the adult population are considered heavy or medium snackers consuming at least four packaged snacks per week. And they’re increasingly looking for healthier options.

NATURAL SNACKS

Natural ingredients are no longer a niche request for consumers. Producer of technology-driven natural ingredients and systems, Doëhler said the demand for naturalness and functionality is firmly cemented as a lifestyle choice as consumers continue to choose snacks that help make them feel good.

SNACK TIME IS ALL THE TIME

In today’s world, any time is snack time!

Snacking is no longer just an absent-minded activity. Shoppers are intentionally looking for snacks to indulge in, satisfy a craving, tide themselves over until their next meal, or enjoy on the go instead of a meal! The snackification movement is not disappearing anytime soon.

For retailers, variety is key. Variety across a multitude of locations and presented to customers at the right time to continue to see success with hungry snackers.

ETHICS AND VALUES MUST MATCH (AND BE COMMUNICATED!)

Today’s shoppers are not only looking for healthier snacks, but ones that tick ethical, local, environmentally friendly boxes too. The brand must have clear communication around these elements in order to stand out from their competition and gain consumer trust.

More and more consumers are shopping according to their values, increasingly willing to be loyal, repeat purchases of brands which they know align with their morals, and this includes their choice of snacks.

After all, consumption of snacks is often in public and millennials in particular see these choices as an expression of who they are and what they stand for.

SO, DO RXBAR’S CREATE THE IDEAL HEALTH-CONSCIOUS SNACK?

RXBAR real food protein bars contain eight ingredients or less with the major ingredients featured front and centre on the packaging. They’re vegetarian, use high-quality protein and stand for clear communication that highlights their wholesome ingredients and commitment to ‘clean’ nutrition.

rxbar-when-to-use

Each RXBAR packs 12g of protein and 5g of fibre in just under 220 calories (924 kilojoules) and what you see is what you eat. The core ingredients are all there for a reason:

Egg whites for protein. Dates to bind. Nuts for texture. 

No free rides. No fillers. Just real food that tastes good and is good for you. 

No artificial preservatives, added colours, sugar or GMO ingredients. 

It’s a nutritious, convenient protein bar that’s in a class of it’s own.

THE ZERO-WASTE, FEMALE-FOUNDED, SOLID BEAUTY BAR BRAND CHANGING THE WAY YOU SHOWER

ethique-hair-care-range

Ethique is an earth-friendly, ethical beauty brand that has pioneered a concentrated, solid beauty bar range to cut out plastic and water waste.

Established in 2012 when biologist and founder, Brianne West had a lightbulb moment. West “realized up to 75 percent of shampoo and even 90 percent of conditioner can be water…which is madness, when there is water in your bathroom!”.

With the beauty industry producing so much plastic waste and the major ingredient in most liquid products being water, it made sense to concentrate the active ingredients into simple and sustainable products that deliver on results, without the packaging.

Each solid beauty bar is equivalent to multiple bottles of the same liquid product. This means on average, every bar saves just under 1L of water and up to 5 plastic bottles! 

Fast forward to today and Ethique is stocked in over 2,500 stores in 17 countries, has a loyal 200k+ social media following and has saved more than 6 million plastic bottles from entering landfill!

HAIRCARE | BODYCARE | SKINCARE | BABY & KIDS | PET CARE | CLEANING | BAR STORAGE

ethique-body-range

The extensive range is:

  • Plastic free
  • Biodegradable
  • Plant based
  • Sustainably made
  • Cruelty free
  • Salon quality
  • Made with ethically sourced, naturally-derived ingredients
  • Wrapped in compostable packaging
  • Affordably priced

A no-compromise brand, Ethique is focused on the goal to become the world’s most sustainable cosmetics company. Currently, they are NZ’s highest-scoring BCorp (the fair trade symbol of the business world) as well as both a carbon-neutral and a living wage employer. 

Sales are driven by their completely plastic-free stance, eye-catching certified compostable packaging, clean, vegan-friendly ingredients, and word of mouth advertising about the efficacy of the bars. As well as features in top-rated publications including Forbes, BBC, and Business Insider. 

It’s no wonder it is the highest-rated, fastest-selling shampoo and conditioner brand on Amazon! 

Ethique truly is natural beauty without a trace, but thanks to its impressive ethics and sustainability efforts, it’s a brand that is definitely making its mark. 

ethique-bodywash-range-zero-waste-bars

Ethique products are available nationwide from all good natural health stores and online, and exclusively distributed through Unique Health Products! RRPs start from as little as $9.95. Eco-friendly bamboo storage solutions and trial packs for face, hair and body are also available!
