THE FASCINATING ALCHEMICAL PROCESS BEHIND REMEDY HERBALS

Remedy Herbals’ tea, tonics and compounds are hand-crafted, natural products designed to assist the body with detoxification, digestion, vitality, stress, sleep, and cold and flu. 

Established by Prof. Junius and Dr Kumar, who were instrumental in bringing Ayurveda to Australia in 1982, the range is the culmination of the combined knowledge and understanding of Herbalism and Plant Alchemy from both the Eastern and Western traditions. 

So, as you’d expect, these products are not simply your regular cup of tea. Each item is expertly manufactured using an ancient process known as the Spagyric Method

What is the Spagyric Method?

The Spagyric Method is an alchemical process based on the concepts of Separation, Purification and Reunification of the active components within a plant, in order to produce a natural essence of the entire plant’s healing properties. 

Unlike the more common pharmacologically isolated way of extracting active ingredients for tinctures and infusions, Spaygric preparations utilise the entire plant in a holistic, synergistic way. 

Through successive phases of extraction, using safe and natural solvents, all of the active principles within the plants are released, including the water solubles, essential oils, minerals, salts and trace elements. 

In the final stage, the fibrous remains of the plants are calcinated to a white ash. The ash is then filtered into a water solution which is potentiated and added to the other extracts to purify and energize the final product which works in a holistic manner to support the body as a whole and highly complex system.

The Spagyric Method adheres to the philosophy that whole foods ideally complement our digestive make up which results in a superior absorption of the nutrients that are required to maintain and/or correct healthy bodily functions.

As an example, Remedy Herbals Trim Tea is prepared from a special blend of herbs including Senna Pods, Chapparal, Uva Ursi, Gotu Kola, Juniper Berries & Elderflower to support the body’s natural detoxification pathways. 

Thanks to their intensive preparation process, these potent blends are incredibly convenient for the consumer allowing them to make a purifying tea in moments with no mess or waste. 

Each tea in the range also offers great value as it only requires one teaspoon per cup! That’s forty cups of tea per bottle!

AUSTRALIAN’S CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF THIS MEAT-FREE BRAND!

Australia’s interest in plant-based alternatives is high with 1 in 3 Australians actively reducing their meat intake!

One brand that continues to shine in the meat-free spotlight is Upton’s Naturals.

This year the brand has been featured in a number of retail and consumer-focused publications, including Ocean Road Magazine, Nourish Magazine, Female, Girl, The Australian Retailer, Live KindlyFood and Drink Business, and Onya magazine!

Pioneers in the meat-alternative market, Upton’s Naturals caters to demand with seasoned jackfruit packets and Ready Meal Kits that tap into the consumer-driven convenience category while offering better-for-you, plant-based alternatives to regular meal kits.

Founder, Dan Staackmann says “doing what we believe in is the best part of this business, and to us, success is creating 100% vegan products that can inspire meat-free meals,” shared Staackmann.

“Unripe jackfruit is the source of an incredibly versatile and healthful meat alternative that is relatively foreign to the [Australian] market. We’ve made jackfruit easier to enjoy and more accessible to the everyday consumer, and the response from vegans and non-vegans alike has been amazing.”

A WIN FOR PLANT-BASED FOODS

Pioneers in the vegan food products industry, Upton’s Naturals are not afraid to stand up to those who are feeling threatened by the plant-based alternative industry either.

In early July, Upton’s Naturals and the Plant Based Foods Association (PBFA) teamed up with the Institute for Justice (IJ) to sue the state of Mississippi for violating the First Amendment right of companies to label food in ways that consumers understand.”

The company stated “Our First Amendment suit in Mississippi has forced the state to propose a new regulation making it clear that companies can sell veggie “burgers” and vegan “bacon.” This is a win for clear labelling and a loss for meat producers who wanted to cripple their competition.”

The Institute for Justice stated, “our lawsuit made it clear that subjecting plant-based food companies to possible criminal prosecution for using common terms on their labels would be a violation of their free speech rights. Mississippi has made the wise decision to change those regulations so that companies will be free to continue selling vegan and vegetarian burgers and other meat alternatives in the Magnolia State.”

The new proposed regulation reverses course from the law banning plant-based foods from using meat product terms like “burger,” “bacon” and “hot dog” on their labels, as well as the Department’s July 1 proposed regulation giving force to the ban. The Department’s July 1 proposed regulation has now been withdrawn.

PLANT-BASED LABELLING IN AUSTRALIA

Many states in the US have passed or are considering implementing similar restrictions on how plant-based foods can be labelled. In Australia, both dairy and meat farmers are calling for transparency through labelling by creating a similar restriction on labelling terms, including a ban on calling nut milks ‘milk’, and limiting potentially ‘misleading’ terms on meat-free alternatives such as vegan ‘bacon’ or plant-based ‘burger patties’.

The CEO of the National Farmers’ Federation in Australia, Tony Mahar states, “the two products – meat and plant-based proteins – can coexist, but we want people to be informed about what they are buying through accurate and honest product labelling.”

It’s a debate that we anticipate will be happening for some time. Yet, regardless of how plant-based alternatives are labelled, there’s no denying that the demand for this exciting category is on the rise!

AUSTRALIA’S EVER-GROWING APPETITE FOR VEGAN PRODUCTS (INFOGRAPHIC)

Plant-based products have been trending all year. But the rise in popularity for meat-free alternatives and cruelty-free, vegan beauty products in Australia shows Aussies are far ahead of the curve! 

What does it mean to be Vegan?

Veganism includes dietary and lifestyle choices that avoid the use of animal-derived products. A vegan diet excludes meat, eggs, dairy, and all other animal-derived ingredients including cheese, honey, butter and gelatine. 

Many vegans also choose to avoid foods processed using animal products, and avoid the use of personal and household products that are tested on animals or use animal-derivatives such as leather, fur and wool. 

Australian’s demand more plant-based alternatives

While not everyone is turning vegan, many consumers are focused on adding more meat-free meals to their diet. 

This increase in demand has seen manufacturers across the globe jump to offer more plant-based alternatives and as a result, it’s never been easier to go meat-free. 

Australian’s are Googling ‘vegan’ more than anyone else in the world! 

So, if you’re not offering plant-based options for your customers, you’re missing out on major sales! 

As a comparison, Australian’s are big adopters of the ‘free-from’ category including gluten and dairy-free items, with the industry seeing major growth in this category and an expanding range of products on offer.

However, the search for ‘vegan’ is far greater! 

Going meat-free might not be the norm, but it’s no longer not normal. 

According to the Financial Review, a Woolworths spokesperson said demand for plant-based options in its stores has grown across cities, coastal and regional areas around Australia.

“There has been double-digit growth in demand for vegan products in the past year. This isn’t all about customers deciding to go vegan or vegetarian, but part of a broader trend where Australians are looking to add more vegetables and plant-based foods into their weekly shop,” the spokesperson said.

The increasing availability and affordability of vegan and vegetarian products then self-perpetuates the trend even further. 

vegan-stats-australia-infographic

In the US, the $4.5 billion USD plant-based market has grown five times the amount of total food sales this year!

There’s a major opportunity for more Australian-made, plant-based product manufacturers too.

“We’re facing a multi-billion-dollar opportunity for Australia to become a global plant-protein powerhouse, and the great news is we already have the intellectual and infrastructure assets to seize it,” Food Frontier CEO, Thomas King said.

According to the report, Australian farmers have a potentially lucrative opportunity to grow crops for the plant-based meat supply chain and secure market share from imported products, demonstrating how the emerging sector complements Australian agriculture.

According to the CSIRO, the global consumer trend for plant-based protein alone is predicted to reach $25 billion AUD by 2030. This is led by increasing interest in sustainable, ethical and healthy food products combined with a growing demand from export markets who are buying into Australia’s reputation for clean and green products.

COLOUR BLOCKING MERCHANDISE FOR MAXIMUM IMPACT

Everyone and everything is constantly competing for the attention of consumers. To win a consumer’s interest, retailers must stand out in some way. Especially if it’s to distract them away from their smartphones! 

One of the most effective ways to catch your customers’ attention is by understanding and implementing engaging visual merchandising. One technique that’s effective and affordable is called colour blocking.   

Colour blocking utilises colour to improve the way the products are displayed. The products look neat and organised, giving the impression that the products are fresh and enhances the overall quality feel of the store. 

Colour blocking has also been proven to encourage shoppers to look through more stock – causing them to notice and purchase products which would otherwise be ignored!

HOW TO COLOUR BLOCK YOUR MERCHANDISE

Most products use distinct colours to differentiate their flavours, scents etc. Utilise this to your advantage, especially with brands that use high-impact colours. A great example of this is ACURE

acure-seriously-soothing-range

For best results, merchandise your colours based on either a theme i.e. Christmas colours; by their colour-branded product ranges i.e. the ACURE Seriously Soothing product range; or by arranging the colours in a layout that suits the weather season. Yes, the temperature plays a role! 

According to Dotactiv, placing products from left to right from darkest to lightest during winter and reversing them during summer feels more natural for your customers, as they read from left to right. 

If you haven’t played around with colour in your merchandising before, try this example as a start:

  1. Place colours from left to right and bottom to top, 
  2. Keep the darker colours on the left, getting lighter as you move right,
  3. and place the darker colours on the bottom, lighter colours on top.

This is what it will look like with a sample of items from the ACURE range:

acure-colour-blockingAlternatively, you can stack your colours vertically from left to right, with the darkest colours on the left, moving to pastels and lighter colours as you progress to the right. Remember to reverse the colours for the colder months!

AWARD-WINNING BAMBOO BANDAGES RECEIVE GLOBAL RECOGNITION

2019 is the year plastic-free alternatives have upped their game, stepped out of the shadows and have the full focus of environmentally-savvy consumers.

There has been a wave of innovation in this space but one company in particular has been sweeping out the competition!

PATCH adhesive bamboo bandages have won six prestigious awards across the globe this year.

PATCH was born when the founder of Nutricare, James Dutton noticed that while trying to protect his son’s adventure wounds his skin was in fact reacting badly to a common wound covering and making the wound worse.

James then set out to create PATCH, a range of natural adhesive bandages that are sustainable, environmentally conscious and cost-effective.

The range includes four types of hypoallergenic, organic adhesive strips made from 100% bamboo, enriched with aloe vera, coconut oil and activated charcoal.

patch-strips

Already sold in 35 different countries, the world’s first 100% compostable wound care solution is disrupting the market by using certified bamboo, natural ingredients, as well as being free of harsh chemicals, plastic, latex.

PATCH is also Australian owned and operated, vegan friendly and cruelty free.

“We want to change the consumer health market for the better by delivering a natural, sensitive-skin-safe and environmentally friendly alternative to wound care.” – James Dutton, Chief Executive Officer

THE SIX AWARDS PATCH HAVE TAKEN HOME THIS YEAR

1) The ‘Best For The World’ Award

PATCH has been recognised as one of the Certified B Corporation’s ‘Best For The World’ Honourees for its sustainability movement and environmental achievements in business, ranking in the top 10% of all B Corps globally for their environmental responsibility.

Nutricare has been a Certified B Corporation (a for-profit company dedicated to using business as a force for good) since 2018.

This year, 1,000 B Corps from 44 countries were named to the 2019 Best For The World lists. These companies were determined based on the verified B Impact Assessments of Certified B Corporations.

According to B Corp, “Our 2019 Best For The World: Environment honourees are taking bold action to preserve our most precious resources. With planet-friendly practices and environmental initiatives, these companies consider the impact of their everyday footprint, including energy usage, materials, facilities, supply chain, and more.”

ARE YOU READY FOR ‘MEAT FREE WEEK’ THIS SEPTEMBER?

Plant-based eating is the biggest worldwide food shift of this decade, particularly in Australia. With nearly 10 million Aussies cutting back on red meat, this trend shows no signs of slowing down. 

According to Google Trends, Australia tops the world for searching “vegan” online. In February 2004, “vegan” queries hovered at 15 (out of 100); but now sits at 92 and has steadily risen for 14 years. 

This year, why not encourage a plant-based lifestyle by promoting Meat Free Week? 

meat free week australia

Meat Free Week (23-29 September) challenges participants to try a plant-based menu for seven days and raise funds for a great cause.

Going meat free for one week creates a great opportunity for your customers to start thinking about how much meat they eat and the potential health impacts of eating too much. 

Studies conducted by the World Cancer Research Fund show bowel cancer risk increases by 12% per 100g of red meat consumed per day and that bowel cancer risk increases by 16% per 50g of processed meat consumed per day.

Whether your customers are meat eaters, vegetarian or vegan, the Meat Free Week challenge can help them discover how easy it is to make little changes that can create a big difference, including some delicious plant-based recipes! 

So why not highlight some of your plant-based meat alternatives front and centre this month?

One of the most versatile, meat-style vegan products comes from the widely recognised US brand, Upton’s Naturals.  

Upton’s Naturals was the first to market with a range of heat-and-eat, pre-seasoned Jackfruit. Jackfruit are the world’s largest tree-borne fruit, and when harvested young and unripe, they can be prepared savory, as a meat alternative. With a naturally meaty texture, this whole food meat alternative makes a simple swap for pulled pork, shredded poultry, and even fish.

They currently offer three lines in Australia – Jackfruit, Real Meal Kits and Ch’eesy Macs. Consumers love eating the Bar-B-Que Jackfruit on a bun with coleslaw, or using the spicy Chilli Lime for tacos.

Original, unseasoned Jackfruit provides a blank slate for the more experienced cook, while Thai Curry, Sweet and Smoky, and Sriracha are meant to inspire those who are new to this unique ingredient.

While the products are shelf-stable, they’re most successfully merchandised in the fridge with other refrigerated meat alternatives.

uptons naturals

The company’s Real Meal Kits feature wholefood ingredients and come in four Thai-inspired varieties: Massaman Curry, Pad See Ew, Thai Spaghetti, and Thai Curry Noodle. Each complete meal is ready in just a few minutes, and can be prepared on the stove top or in the microwave – simply mix the pouches, and heat.

Despite containing no preservatives, these meals are shelf-stable, and are generally sold alongside other Asian meal kits, or quick meal kits.

uptons ch'eesy mac

Another quick-cooking vegan line from Upton’s Naturals are the Ch’eesy Mac varieties – Ch’eesy Bacon Mac and original Ch’eesy Mac. The packages contain ready-to-eat large and ridged macaroni noodles alongside a pouch of prepared nutritional yeast-based cheese.

These 100% vegan products are low in sugar while being completely free from nuts, dairy, oil, trans fat, cholesterol, GMOs and artificial flavours. Typically found with other boxed mac and cheese in stores, these are ready to eat in as little as 60 seconds. 

Other great plant-based pantry staples for easy, meat-free meals include:

SNACKIFICATION: THE PRODUCTS YOU NEED, NOW.

Snackification is driven by Millennials and taken up by the time-poor. Australians are adopting the idea of snacking their way through the day instead of sitting down to the traditional three square meals a day.

Snacks are no longer used as a treat to simply hold off hunger until the next meal. They are becoming the meals themselves! As a result, consumers are demanding way more healthier options.

Grab n’ go healthy snacking has never been so popular. Maximise on this opportunity by introducing your customers to a whole range of new, delicious and healthy items.

The benefit? Snacks take up minimal shelf space, you can place them in high traffic areas to bump up your average basket sale amount and if they meet the current market demands, they have a guaranteed high turnover.
