TRENDING IN 2020: CAULIFLOWER

Riced, powdered, blended, roasted as a ‘steak’ or completely transformed into a vegan-friendly creamy sauce, grain-free pasta or crispy pizza base. Is there anything the humble cauliflower can’t do?! 

It seems that one of the most detested veggies of our childhoods has managed to sneak its way into practically everything and today’s health-conscious consumers’ are obsessed. 

INDUSTRY GROWTH

According to Nielsen data, packaged cauliflower products have grown by 71% over the past year. Sales of packaged cauliflower “rice,” zucchini noodles and other vegetable-based replacements for pasta and other simple carbs reached $47 million this year, with sales of cauliflower substitutes in particular doubling over the past year to $17 million.

Consumers are turning to cauliflower because of its low carbohydrate nutrient profile, mild flavour and versatility. Cauliflower-containing recipes have spread like crazy across social media, appearing in everything from muffins and cakes to gnocchi, pizza and “Mac N’ Cheese” inspired casseroles!

CONSUMERS LOVE CAULIFLOWER

Experts are attributing the rise in cauli-love to a broader increased interest in low carb, keto and paleo diets. As well as an increased awareness about the health benefits of vegetables and desire to eat more of them, especially those following flexitarian, vegan, gluten-free and plant-based diets. 

Clever manufacturers are capitalising on the popularity and adding the element of convenience for a winning combination that pleases a wide range of consumers. 

The increased innovation in packaged cauliflower products also provides exciting new options for parents in the never-ending battle to get their kids to eat more vegetables!

SUPERFOOD CREAMER SHAKES UP GLOBAL COFFEE INDUSTRY (PLUS RECIPES)

Coffee creamer is used in countries all around the world as a convenient substitute for milk. It has a longer shelf life than milk, comes in liquid and powered forms and can be added to tea, coffee and chocolate drinks.

What are the ingredients in Creamer?

Typically, a creamer combines refined sugar syrups, additives, flavours, vegetable oils and sodium caseinate (a milk protein derived from casein). Coffee creamer can also contain trans fats to increase the stabilisation of the product. Trans fats are known to contribute to health issues such as high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes and increased risk of heart disease.

Superfood Creamer

In stark contrast, Laird Superfood Creamers are crafted from the highest quality all-natural whole food ingredients. Their entire range is sustainably sourced and thoroughly tested to ensure only the cleanest, finest products are created.

It’s the value-added, non-dairy creamer that, according to SPINS data, is the fastest growing brand in natural and speciality channels in the US!

Co-founder, Laird Hamilton is an American big-wave surfer, co-inventor of tow-in surfing, and world renowned “waterman”. He has appeared in a variety of movies and was recently interviewed by Joe Rogan for the Joe Rogan Experience, one of the world’s most popular podcasts.

Laird created Laird Superfood Creamer out of his personal desire to enhance his daily coffee and keep himself energised for longer when out in the water.

“At Laird Superfood, we think of our clean-ingredient products as fuel. With the right fuel, you can accomplish anything” says Laird.

Laird Superfood Creamer Ingredients

So what makes Laird Superfood Creamer so superior? It all comes down to the clever blend of quality ingredients. The Original blend combines coconut milk powder, organic coconut sugar, Aquamin™ (a mineral rich algae) and organic extra virgin coconut oil for a simplistic, clean alternative.

The other blends in the range have added superfoods such as Turmeric and Cacao and there is also an Unsweetened variety for a low-carb, keto-friendly creamer option!

The full range is:

  • Plant-Based
  • Gluten Free
  • Soy Free
  • Non-GMO
  • All-Natural
  • Shelf Stable

They contain:

  • A full range of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) 
  • No Artificial Flavours, Colours, or Additives
  • No Highly-Refined Sugars
  • No Refrigeration Needed

The Rise of Healthier Creamers

Technavio’s analysts have predicted that the entire coffee creamer market will register a CAGR of over 5% by 2023.

The convenience of creamers is the key factor driving their use in general, but “the rising demand for vegan coffee creamers is one of the key factors that will trigger the growth of the global coffee creamer market.”

The general preference for more natural and organic products is also predicted to support this growth.

How To Use Superfood Creamer – Recipes

Using creamer is easy! It’s as simple as adding it to your favourite hot beverage.

For Laird Superfood Creamer, simply add a heaped teaspoon to the beverage and shake, blend or froth into a deliciously smooth coffee supercharged with MCTs and superfoods.

THE BANANA CHIP TREND – GUT FRIENDLY, SAVOURY SNACKS WITH A POTATO CHIP TASTE!

Savoury snacks are the emerging fast food category in the global market and banana chips are offering the top performing products a run for their money.

According to MarketWatch, the global market for savoury snacks was valued at $140 billion AUD in 2016 and is expected to reach $203.7 billion AUD by 2023 at a CAGR of 7.20%. 

Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing market, largely driven by changing lifestyles and food consumption habits, the rise in disposable incomes and increasing food convenience.

Various products within the category include potato chips, extruded snacks, nuts, and seeds, traditional snacks, popcorn, and pretzels. 

Potato chips are highest in demand, however, market capturing opportunities include the rising popularity of innovative products with different types of flavours and organic based savoury products. 

SAVOURY BANANA CHIPS

Capitalising on low customer loyalty, high shifting habits and consumer demand for innovation in this market, savoury banana chips are beginning to tempt consumer taste buds with a ‘better-for-you’ alternative to regular potato chips. 

What is a savoury banana chip?

The sweet, thick cut varieties may first come to mind, and while some types bear a little resemblance to these, the savoury versions are made from unripe bananas and coated in mouthwatering herbs, spices and natural flavours to cater to consumer demand for more grain free, savoury snacks. And they’re proving very popular! 

According to SPINS Data, Bubba’s Fine Foods ‘Nana Chips have seen 240+% growth in only 7 months at Whole Foods Market and a total of 470% product sales increase in the past year! 

BUBBA’S FINE FOODS ‘NANA CHIPS VS BANANA JOE’S BANANA CHIPS

Here at Unique, we distribute two very different types of banana chips as an alternative offering in this rapidly growing market – Bubba’s Fine Foods and Banana Joe’s

bubbas-nana-chips-australia

Bubba’s Fine Foods was founded by Jared Menzel and Jeff Schmidgall, two former addicts of Doritos & Chex Mix, who switched to Paleo diets to manage their Diabetes & Crohn’s disease.

After a few years of eating grain-free, Jared and Jeff missed the crunchy snacks of their youth. The market didn’t have a solution, so they made it themselves.

The green, low-sugar bananas are kettle cooked and seasoned with real spices and seasonings so they taste like potato chips and satisfy salty snack cravings. Schmidgall, Bubba’s CEO says, “We’re going to get you your naughty taste, but we’re going to do it with really nice ingredients.”

Bubba’s Fine Foods – Key Selling Points

  • Thick cut
  • Loaded with flavour

  • A natural prebiotic for gut health
  • Vegan 
  • Paleo
  • Grain free
  • Gluten free

banana-joe-banana-chips-australia

Banana Joe’s Banana Chips are made with sustainably grown green Hom Thong bananas that are finely sliced and seasoned before cooking and tossed with probiotics, offering a first-to-market synbiotic chip with pre- and probiotic benefits for gut health. 

Co-founders, Joe Vachiravich Sirichokvanich and Nat Meechubot are longtime friends who love to eat great food. Nat said “we decided that functional snacks were not so abundant on the market, nor did they offer the same taste as regular snacks—hence, a huge compromise.” So they took it upon themselves to source the finest ingredients and utilise the latest in innovative technology to fill the gap.

The bananas are picked fresh and packed on the same day for extra freshness and 10% of profits go towards small scale farmers in support of organic, sustainable, fair-trade agriculture. 

Banana Joe’s – Key Selling Points

  • Thin & Crispy hand-cut wafer-like slices
  • 1 billion probiotic cultures per pack
  • Full of flavour
  • All natural
  • Cooked in rice bran oil
  • No preservatives 
  • Non-GMO

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.

GRIN BRUSHES AWAY COMPETITION WITH THEIR CLINICALLY PROVEN 100% NATURAL ORAL CARE

Grin Natural, the Kiwi business dedicated to making our pearly whites brighter the natural way, has finally hit Australian shores and the future for oral care retailers is looking oh-so-bright!

The Grin Story

Back in 2013, the Grin team set upon creating a product different to the rest. One that is 100% natural with NO sodium lauryl sulfate, NO added sugar, NO preservatives, NO artificial colours, NO artificial flavours, NO fragrance and NO harsh abrasives. It was as much about what they were leaving out as what they were putting in.

In 2015 after 18 months of researching, testing and refining, Grin Natural was born! Not only is Grin toothpaste missing all the nasties, it’s natural active ingredients; Manuka Oil, Propolis and Organic Sea Salt, based on their laboratory test results, show good potential to combat the six common oral bacteria.

Today, Grin Natural is stocked in over 400 retailers in New Zealand, including dental clinics nationwide! In fact, it’s the ONLY natural toothpaste stocked in New Zealand dental clinics!

Grin-toothbrushes

Grin Toothbrushes

A healthy oral care ritual isn’t complete without a better-for-you-and-the-planet toothbrush! Beautifully designed and available in a colour palette that includes ivory, navy and mint, and pink and orange for kids, the Grin corn starch brushes are an eco-friendly alternative to the not-so-fantastic plastic toothbrush.

The brush handle is made from sustainable non-GMO corn starch and will biodegrade in a home or commercial compost. Just use a pair of pliers to remove the bristles first and let nature do the rest.

With packaging that is as sustainable as the brushes in them, Grin has created a consistent experience for the conscious consumer. The clear blister seal is made of PLA, a biodegradable plant-based plastic made from corn starch and the card backing is biodegradable too!

The bristles on the adult brushes are infused with a premium activated charcoal; an ingredient that has been recognised for its antibacterial and detoxifying properties for thousands of years. Alongside brushing, the charcoal works to keep bacteria at bay whilst absorbing toxins and restoring the whiteness of teeth.

The bristles on the kid’s brushes are extra soft rounded nylon bristles designed for sensitive teeth and gums.

Grin-toothpaste

Grin Toothpaste

Grin is all about what they leave in, what they leave out, and how they leave your teeth. Their formulation is 100% natural and helps to improve your oral hygiene – because toothpaste needs to get the job done! Here’s what you’ll find in their products, and the items they’ve left out:

Grin Kids Toothbrushes and Toothpaste

Grin 100% Natural Kids toothpaste is a gentle and effective gel specifically formulated to give the kindest treatment to your little one’s baby teeth.

Available in natural orange or natural strawberry flavour; delicious, real fruit flavours, the natural sugar-free xylitol adds a hint of natural sweetness and helps to prevent plaque build-up with regular brushing.
