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.

Take a look at the latest to arrive at Unique below.

What ACO Means For Me?

FREE RANGE, CRUELTY FREE, PASTURE FED, SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE, GROWN FREE FROM SYNTHETIC PESTICIDES, GM, HORMONES AND ANTIBIOTICS – THE AUSTRALIAN CERTIFIED ORGANIC (ACO) BUD IS ONE LOGO THAT PROMISES IT ALL!

ACO is a not for profit, fully-owned subsidiary of Australia Organic Ltd and with over 1500 operators within its certification system, it’s Australia’s largest certifier for organic and biodynamic produce.

With today marking day one of Australian Organic Awareness Month, as a retailer, you may be wondering how this month will affect you and what ACO means for your business. In the short – it’s all good news.

Australian Organic Awareness Month is Australia’s largest national campaign run by ACO celebrating certified organic products, across a diverse range of industries, including fresh produce, packaged food and beverages, skincare, cosmetics and more!

So tell me the good news, you say? The good news is that global demand for organic products is rising, which is said to be due to increasing health concerns and awareness.

Just over half of organic shoppers say the key factor that prompted them to start buying organic was ‘becoming more aware of the impact food, fibre or cosmetics had on personal health’.

ACO table

Organic industry revenue is forecast
to reach $919.2 million in 2016-17,
up 7.2% from the previous year.

This upward trending growth indicates that customers are increasingly buying organic and if you’re known for stocking organic, it’s your doors they’ll think of walking though first. That’s a win for the organic industry, a win for the environment, a win for your customers and a win for you!

When it comes to organic, trust has been identified as being a big barrier to purchase. ACO’s strict quality guidelines have lead their bud logo to become the most recognised and reputable organic logo amongst Australian consumers today.

85% of all shoppers say an organic
certification mark on a product
influences their purchase decision.

Read more about the certification process and compare the above growth statistics to last year’s industry growth here.

 

Throughout Australian Organic Awareness Month (this September), ACO will be running promotions, prizes and giveaways via social media, online media, print media, radio and TV, educating consumers and driving your sales of ACO products.

“It’s all about raising awareness and protecting the interest of the consumer, so our message for consumers is to look for a certified organic logo when you’re shopping – like ACO’s Bud logo – because that’s the only way to guarantee a product is truly organic.” – ACO.

To capitalise on the demand for organics and the extra exposure organics will receive during Organic Awareness Month, make sure you are stocked up with our most popular ACO brands including Power Super Foods, Protein Supplies Australia and Hemp Foods Australia.

Power Super Foods

Power Super Foods offer a large range of beautifully packaged superfoods, many of which hold the ACO bud.
