SUSTAINABLE BRANDS ANSWER THE CONSUMER CALL

Regardless of generation or gender, the environment matters to consumers. 

In one study of 2000 Australians, the researchers found that the top three overall social and economic concerns for the respondents were plastic waste, toxic chemicals and our oceans. The same study also found that 56% of people are actively searching for sustainable brands and products that support causes or have environmentally friendly attributes. As many as 6 in 10 will pay more for said products. 

56% of people are actively searching for sustainable brands and products that support causes or have environmentally friendly attributes.

Equally, in another recent study on sustainability in Australia, 46% of people reported that they had stopped buying particular products due to their environmental and societal impact. 48% of people wear their choices with pride, believing that sustainable purchases are a statement of who they are and what they believe in. 

At Unique Health Products, we are proud to distribute products from a large range of sustainable brands that are leaders in providing choices to address the environmental concerns of consumers.

Sustainable brands using recycled packaging

RECYCLED PACKAGING

The statistics on plastic packaging are frightening. In Australia, one million tonnes of our annual plastic consumption is single-use plastic. And it’s not going unnoticed. 83% of people are concerned by plastic waste. 

Ethique is on a mission to #giveupthebottle and revolutionise the beauty industry. To date, Ethique’s solid bars have saved more than 10 million bottles from entering landfill. The commitment from this brand to being plastic free extends right across the business. Not only are the bars plastic free, but they also use compostable packaging.

Acure is another sustainable brand, already firmly committed to sustainable and natural products, now taking further steps by removing unnecessary outer box packaging. 

Similarly, household cleaning brand, Earthwise, has pledged that by 2025, 100% of their packaging will be recyclable, reusable or compostable. They are transparent on their progress and dedicated to making positive environmental change.

Sustainable brands that consider the full product life cycle

THE FULL PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE

The Australian Packaging Covenant has set a target for 100% of product packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025. There are many brands that are going further than that to create products that not only use sustainable packaging, but the product itself is compostable. 

This approach of considering the full product life cycle caters to the growing consumer market that is concerned with their waste footprint.

PATCH is one such sustainable brand with their innovative, compostable Bandages. Not only are the PATCH Bandages made from 100% natural bamboo fibre with the added goodness of activated charcoal, aloe vera and coconut oil, but the Bandages, and their packaging, are also 100% compostable. The result is a product that is good for people and the planet. 

Using bio-plastics, the Biotuff range of Bin Liners, Kitchen Tidy Bags, Nappy Waste Bags, Disposable Gloves, Cling Wrap, Sandwich Bags and Dog Waste Bags are biodegradable and compostable. Plastic bags can take between 20 and 1000 years to decompose, not to mention the other environmental impacts they can have for our oceans and animals. 

Sustainable brands that make reusables

REUSABLES

According to Euromonitor, the Australian ‘throw-away’ culture is being replaced with an increased movement towards reusable and refillable containers and products. 

Ever Eco was an Australian pioneer as the first brand in the country to introduce Stainless Steel Drinking Straws. They have continued to lead the reusables industry and have since expanded their range to include a large number of reusables including Water Bottles, Clothes Pegs, Produce Bags, Kitchen Storage and more.

Also in the reusables market, Honeybee Wrap creates 100% organic cotton, eco alternatives to plastic wrap that can be reused time and time again. 

But it’s not just food and drink related products that are driving the reusables boom. The Hello Cup replaces pads and tampons as a reusable period product alternative. Made from medical grade thermoplastic elastomer, it can be used for years, helping to reduce the 45 billion single-use period products that end up in landfill each year. 

Sustainable brands that use sustainably sourced ingredients

SUSTAINABLY SOURCED INGREDIENTS

In one study conducted by IBM it was found that 73% of the research participants want more than simple sustainability claims from the brands they buy. They want details about sourcing and the traceability of products and ingredients. Of those people, 71% are willing to pay a premium for products that provide that information.

This is the kind of transparency that RXBAR was founded on. Not only does every RXBAR contain clean and responsibly-sourced ingredients, those ingredients are proudly visible, front and centre on the product packaging. 

The Ginger People are also steadfastly committed to sustainably sourced ingredients and have developed strong partnerships with their farmers to ensure this. By working with family farms around the world in locations such as Peru, China, Indonesia and Fiji, they create opportunities for the local people and follow bio-diverse farming practices. 

Ethical sourcing is also a principle that guides the production of Dr Organic Skincare and Hair Care. The natural and plant extracts are sourced from around the world to produce luxury products that don’t cost the earth.  

Sustainable brands with carbon neutral operations

CARBON NEUTRAL OPERATIONS

77% of consumers are concerned about climate change. They are looking for the brands they purchase to take positive action towards reducing their carbon footprint. 

CLIF is a leader in this space, having achieved their goal of carbon neutral business operations, operating on 100% green power for electricity at all CLIF facilities. Not only this, they also sustainably source their ingredients and they are committed to reaching a goal of 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025.

Sustainable brands showing environmental innovation

ENVIRONMENTAL INNOVATION

There are also many sustainable brands that are identifying innovative ways to target environmental issues.

Take People4Ocean as an example. Their range of suncare products were designed by marine biologists to be not only reef safe but also target common skin concerns related to sun exposure. 

Another brand innovating for good is Natural Evolution. What started as an accidental discovery when Natural Evolution founder and second-generation banana farmer, Robert Watkins, drove over a hand of lady finger bananas has turned into a booming brand. Not only do Natural Evolution Banana Flour products have an array of health benefits, using the bananas to produce flour also helps with the issue of farmers discarding excess bananas that were unwanted by the supermarkets.

Whatever the environmental concerns of your customers, at Unique Health Products we have brands to cater to their needs. As a retailer you can make a statement about your sustainability goals and commitments by stocking your shelves with these innovative, eco-friendly brands.

TRENDS AND INSIGHTS FROM NATURALLY GOOD 2021

Over the last 25 years as a natural health products distributor, we’ve not only witnessed the industry evolve, we’re proud of the role we’ve played in that evolution. Natural health products have merged into the mainstream as more and more consumers embrace their benefits.

One thing we recognise as a business is that it’s when we come together to share, connect and learn that we see the biggest shifts. Naturally Good is one such place to do that and we were thrilled to be back at Naturally Good 2021, flying the Unique flag alongside our suppliers, retailers and industry peers.

If you weren’t able to make it to Naturally Good 2021, we wanted to share some of the learnings and insights we took away from the event so you can ride the wave of the coming industry trends.

Naturally Good 2021 insights

HOLISTIC HEALTH 

Something we’ve been talking about for awhile at Unique Health Products is the more holistic nature of the modern health consumer. Today’s definition of health includes both physical and emotional aspects. 

This trend towards total mind and body wellness was echoed by the IRI Analysis, 2021, which lists physical activity, diet and nutrition alongside other holistic health priorities such as sleep, rest, financial wellbeing, ethics and sustainability. 

At the same time, the health foods market is growing. According to the IRI MarketEdge Grocery Scan, MAT to 03/01/21, health foods in grocery saw dollar growth of 10.7% from 2019 to 2020 to AUD$662 million. Vitamins and minerals in grocery saw 13.1% dollar growth in the same period to AUD$47.4 billion incremental dollars. 

PLANT-BASED DIETS

Plant-based eating is on the rise with 65% of global consumers eating more plant-based food and beverages1. But it’s not just vegans who are driving the plant-based trend. There are new markets of consumers turning to plants for a variety of reasons.

In Australia, 1-3% of people identify as vegan, 4-12% as vegetarian, 7-20% as flexitarian and 20-25% as meat reducers2

Interestingly, the uptake of plant-based meat alternatives is mostly driven by curiosity. While 17% of people buy plant-based meat alternatives because they are vegan or vegetarian, 19% of people do so for environmental reasons, 28% due to animal welfare concerns and 58% out of curiosity about the taste3

But this isn’t the end of the plant-based growth phenomenon. Expect to see more in the way of adaptogenic plants, such as ashwagandha, rhodiola, maca, holy basil and eleuthero root, that can help people to cope with stress.

PROTEIN POWER

Protein has been shining in the spotlight for some time… but what next?

What is apparent from in-store promotion is that consumers see protein as permission to indulge. However, given the saturation of protein-centric SKUs in the market, the key when it comes to protein is differentiation. 

That differentiation comes in a variety of different ways. The first is products that crank up the protein, such as CLIF Builders Bars. The second is in personalisation to target specific market segments4. It’s important to focus on the importance of protein quality with a number of plant-based protein sources, such as protein-rich pulses and carbon transformation playing a bigger role in the industry. 

GUT HEALTH AND IMMUNITY

With increasing awareness and interest in products that support immunity, digestion and gut health, there also comes an opportunity for in-store education and promotion. 

75% of consumers admit to learning about new products by discovering them in store5. It’s important to maximise shelf-ready packaging to ensure the brand and key selling points are clear to not only increase customer awareness of the product but also the ingredients used. Better-for-you bagged snacks are also playing a leading role in the future of shelf real estate.10 

In this same trend, it’s worth noting that probiotic and prebiotic grocery SKUs are growing by more than 50% year on year6. The opportunity here is to highlight probiotic quality and strain efficacy and look for probiotics entering new categories.

Further, by integrating health products alongside non-health products on shelves you can reach new customers and demonstrate your awareness of and responsiveness to trends that are important to consumers. 

AUSTRALIAN DIET TRENDS

While Australians generally have a poor diet (i.e. not enough of the recommended five food groups, with too much of the discretionary category) there is some awareness of this. 44% of consumers agree that they “follow a balanced, healthy diet” while only 12% strongly agree with this statement.7

At the same time, 44% of Australians are concerned about how much sugar they are consuming.8 Related to this, SKUs that target the no/less sugar market are seeing 17% dollar growth and 13% unit growth, both higher than the industry growth rates.9 

The opportunity in this trend is the reinvention of low sugar indulgence with a move to clean and simple ingredients.

CLIF BAR: The #1 energy bar fuelling sales, one bite at a time

The CLIF Bar story started with a bike ride. The epiphany that founder, Gary Erickson, had on that one cycling adventure set the wheels in motion for a product that has since become the leading energy bar across America, Canada and more recently Australia. 

It was 1990. Gary lived in a garage with his dog and pursued his passion for skiing, climbing and cycling. But with minimal options for energy bars on the market at the time, fueling his body for his active lifestyle was unappetizing to say the least.

Gary spent two years, with the help of the best baker he knew, his mum, perfecting the recipe that would become the original CLIF Bar. It ticked all the boxes – taste, sustained energy and wholesome ingredients.

CLIF Bar was an instant hit and soon became the energy bar of choice for cyclists and climbers before quickly hitting mainstream distribution channels.

The high-energy, natural and organic CLIF range now includes Energy Bars, Nut Butter Bars, Bloks Energy Chews, Energy Gel Shots, and the latest addition, Builders Bars. The brand has a loyal following, recognised for providing plant-based, wholesome grab n’ go bars and quick-release energy sources. 

CLIF Bar products

Powering top athletes around the world, including Venus Williams and John John Florence, the brand currently powers more than 11 Australian TEAM CLIF BAR athletes and tens of thousands of event competitors across the nation.

Never veering from its original vision to make a better tasting product, each item is crafted by athletes for athletes and made with real ingredients to energise and nourish. 

Going well beyond fuelling energy for any moment, CLIF is a company with a global purpose. When other energy bar brands were being acquired by multinational food companies, Gary and his wife, Kit Crawford, made the decision to stay private and developed an innovative, values-based business model. And it has paid off. The brand has seen double-digit, compounded annual growth for the past 10 years. 

In the same way Gary started CLIF with a vision to create a better energy bar option, the company vision has always been to do business in a better way. Food is at the centre of everything CLIF does, so organic ingredients and organic farming lead the sustainability efforts of the business. 

They are committed to reaching a goal of 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025. Their business operations are climate neutral and they have wide reaching programs in place to support the people, places and communities they touch including becoming an employee-owned business, paid community volunteer days for staff and operating on 100% green power for electricity at CLIF facilities. 

Over 30 years CLIF has played a leading role in shaping the energy bar industry while remaining true to their sustainability values. It’s no wonder they’re the number one choice to provide energy for any moment.  

Unique Health Products is proud to be part of the CLIF Bar story as the exclusive distributor of CLIF Bar products in Australia. You can shop the CLIF Bar range online with us 24/7, or call our friendly sales team on 1800 787 904. If you don’t have a wholesale account with us yet, you can register for one here.

HEALTHY SNACK BARS ARE FUELLING SALES

In Australia, the snack bar market is expected to reach AUD $1 billion by 2024! With the ‘Snackification’ trend still going strong and consumer lifestyles getting more active with the warmer weather, the demand for healthy, convenient snack options is high.

In fact, recent research by Roy Morgan tracked the shopping habits of Australians over March and April this year. Their results showed that 66% of Australians bought savoury snacks and there was a significant increase in healthy-snack orders, which accounted for 54.7% of total packaged snack-food sales. That was the biggest moving sector in the healthy-snack category! 

Snack company Livwell Emporium said in a statement, “as the frequency of snacking has increased and interest in veganism has gained momentum, so too has the demand for healthier, plant-based snacking options”. The company saw sales increase by 80% in the last six months as Australians sought out healthier options and plant-based alternatives.

The research also found that more than 62% of the adult population are “heavy” or “medium” snackers. 

Tap into this growth and stock your snack bar category with these international and home-grown superstars. There is a bar to suit every dietary lifestyle, including keto, low carb, low sugar, vegan, paleo and gluten free. Let’s rip open the wrapper and discover more!

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.

CLIFBAR_SUSTAINED_KaterinaNash

“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.
