CONSUMER DEMAND FOR PLANT-BASED GOODS IS A BOOMING $4.2 BILLION INDUSTRY

According to the most recent SPINS’ analysis, the ‘plant-based’ goods industry is projected to be worth $4.2 billion by the end of 2018 after growing 18 percent in the year ending July 15, 2018.

SPINS estimates that the plant-based sector will grow to $6 billion in sales by 2020, which would be a 100 percent increase over just six years!good-food-insights-8-31-chart1

 

According to New Hope and SPINS data, the rapid growth of the plant-based product sector has been a four-stage process:

  1. The widespread adoption of the more broadly appealing term “plant-based” for products that often were labeled (or characterized) in the past as “vegan.” Vegan, to many consumers, is a lifestyle completely free of animal-sourced products (or nearly so), which only a small percentage of all consumers have adopted. But a much greater percentage of eaters are seeking more plants and less meat and dairy in their diets, and they have a higher comfort level with “plant-based.”
  2. Rapidly increasing distribution. Overall growth rate appears to be accelerating as products such as these become more available in a greater number of stores. “More retailers are adopting and incorporating plant-based into their assortment sets, and this distribution growth is apparent,” said Dries Zender, a SPINS client growth solutions principal. “Retailers need to pay attention to the plant-based shopper, as they spend 60 percent more in their basket than the average shopper.”
  3. Packaging. Improved packaging that draws attention and makes plant-based alternatives much more appealing.
  4. Successful plant-based products taste good. “You even see plant-based brands that are continuing to innovate with their taste profile,” said Alice Mintz, business growth solutions manager at SPINS. “That’s great, because people are continuously adventuring, and brands are adventuring and they’re trying to offer the best-tasting product. They’re not giving people a reason to step away from plant-based. If anything, it’s giving people a reason to dig further in.”

NATURALLY GOOD EXPO 2018 – BY THE NUMBERS

Held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Darling Harbour, the Naturally Good Expo is Australia’s largest trade show for all natural, organic and healthy products and services.

Each year we attend as a platinum partner to showcase our top sellers to the most influential people in the industry and work to build mutually beneficial connections with retailers and our suppliers. This year we unveiled our biggest stand yet – the largest at the show!

In case you missed it, here’s how our Naturally Good Expo 2018 experience happened – by the numbers!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-clif-bar1

1. ONE CRITICAL PERSON

It takes a whole lot of planning, coordination and project management to transform our original ideas into a real-life masterpiece at the Naturally Good Expo. Thankfully, we have one incredible team that makes all the late nights, early mornings, last minute hiccups and hours spent on emails and phone calls integrate into a seamless, successful event!

While we couldn’t do it without many hands on deck, there is always one person in particular that plays a pivotal role in our Naturally Good experience – our Marketing Executive extraordinaire, Carol. Thank you for all that you do!

2. TWO MAJOR STALL SPACES

This year the Unique stand took up two of the largest sites at the expo. The updated stand was dotted with sampling booths, decorated with hot new products and buzzing with staff, suppliers and retailers – it was a sight to see and the energy was incredible!

3. THREE HOUR PACK DOWN

With the Australian Pharmacy Professional Conference & Trade Exhibition looming the following weekend, most of the team had already returned to the Sunshine Coast by the time the event ended. The staff and suppliers that remained (thank you, East Bali Cashews and Natural Evolution!) packed down the stall in a record time of 3 hours!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-hot-new-products

4. FOUR SIGMATIC, MY MAGIC MUD, UPTON’S NATURALS & MORE!

This year, when it came to sampling and showcasing our amazing product range, the team had a little extra help…

Award-winning international and local creators, innovators and makers of the hottest, must-have health products joined us as part of our ‘Meet the Makers’ event – including Four Sigmatic, My Magic Mud, Manitoba Harvest and Upton’s Naturals!

Each supplier that joined our stand had the opportunity to promote and sample their products at their very own sampling booth. This allowed the suppliers to strengthen their retailer relationships and cement their place as a leading brand in the health and wellness space. Something we’re beyond proud to help facilitate!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-clif-bar

5. FIVE HUNDRED HEALTH PRODUCTS AND GOODIE BAGS

The stand was full to the brim with more than 500 natural health and wellness products on display! Plus, we handed out 500+ goodie bags to industry influencers, retail leaders, and key stakeholders filled with:

6. SIX MONTHS PREP TIME

The entire event took our team, Carol in particular, a grand total of six months to prepare for. From supporting the Naturally Good Expo team with our Platinum Partner duties, to coordinating stock, and logistics of the stand set up and staff involved, there was so much to be done and we couldn’t be prouder of our team and what they’ve achieved!

7. SEVEN THOUSAND ATTENDEES

Across two huge days, we served up thousands of product samples to 7000+ health-focused expo attendees – also known as a lot of chopping!

Sampling allowed retailers and industry leaders to gain better insights into the suppliers products, build stronger connections, learn the backstory, and discover what niche the product can fill in their stores. It’s a super important step towards long-term success in stores!

Naturally-good-expo-2018-manitoba-harvest

8. MORE THAN EIGHTY HOT NEW PRODUCTS LAUNCHED

An entire section of our stand was dedicated to over 80 hot new products launched at the expo! Brands included:

9. NINE HOUR SET UP

While the pack down was somewhat of a breeze, Rome wasn’t certainly not built overnight. Our largest stand ever took a whole lot of teamwork and around nine hours to set it all up!

10. TEN HUGE PALLETS DELIVERED

That nine hours of set up involved the unpacking and merchandising of 10 full pallets of product, equipment and stall materials!

Despite the whirlwind nature of the actual event, we put our time and effort into these events to support our suppliers, build and strengthen our retailer relationships and meet new faces along the way. We couldn’t do what we do without their support and for that, we’re always grateful!

If you missed out this time, don’t worry, we can’t wait to do it all again, so we’ll see you next year!

7 DIET TRENDS EVERY HEALTH RETAILER NEEDS TO KNOW

WHILE INDIVIDUAL DIETS VARY, BELOW IS A GUIDE TO HELP YOU ENSURE YOU’RE OFFERING CUSTOMERS WHAT THEY WANT.

What diet trends are your customers following in 2018? We’ve covered 7 of the most popular diets you’ll be asked about this year so you can wow your customers with the products that suit their needs, no questions asked.

1. FLEXITARIAN

A flexitarian diet (also known as a semi-vegetarian) is mostly vegetarian, allowing for the occasional consumption of meat, poultry and seafood. This diet has risen in popularity as it’s a more achievable alternative to going full vegetarian.

Growing numbers of Australians are going meat free with more than 11% having eliminated or almost eliminated meat from their diets at the end of 2016.

2. REDUCETARIAN

This diet is very loose but makes a conscious effort to reduce meat, poultry, seafood, eggs and dairy. For example, those that follow ‘Meat-Free Monday’ would fall into the reducetarian category.

Meat replacement alternatives like Upton’s Naturals jackfruit are highly appealing to this category!

3. VEGAN

A vegan diet strictly avoids any animal-derived ingredients, including meat, poultry, seafood, dairy, eggs, gelatine and bee products.

4. LOW FODMAP

FODMAP is an acronym that stands for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols. Simply speaking, the Low FODMAP diet helps with digestive issues by aiming to temporarily reduce short-chain carbohydrates in the diet.

5. PALEO

Widely famous thanks to high calibre influencers like Pete Evans, the paleo diet is based on the types of foods presumed to have been eaten by early humans. This includes meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, nuts (excluding peanuts which are a legume) and fruit. It excludes dairy, processed foods, sugar and grains.

Nutrition Insight reported that globally the “high protein” paleo category experienced 26% globally from 2015-2016.

6. LOW CARB HIGH FAT (LCHF)

Also known as the keto diet, the LCHF prescribes foods low in carbohydrates (ranging from 5-20% in total carbohydrates) and high in fats (up to 75% in total fat).

Nielsen reported that the Asia-Pacific region is leading the growth in the category with 34% of respondents saying they follow a low-carb, high-fat diet to lose weight.

7. 5:2

5:2 is an intermittent fasting diet. It follows five days of normal food intake with two restricted calorie days weekly. The diet aims to reduce body fat and extend the time human growth hormone (HGH) is active in the body.

Common foods consumed in the diet include bulletproof coffee, protein, high fat foods including oils and high carbohydrate foods like rice and quinoa.

ONE TO WATCH: WHOLE 30

The Whole 30 Diet is a short-term program that encourages participants to cut out alcohol, dairy, grains, sugar, legumes, and additives for 30 days straight – with no cheating.

The goal is to cut inflammation-promoting foods and then gradually reintroduce them to see what needs to be eliminated for good.

Customers following this diet may be looking for packaged foods that meet the guidelines, and products that support detoxing and gut health, and reduce inflammation.

The World’s Biggest Jackfruit Frenzy!

ALL OVER THE GLOBE, FLEXITARIANS, VEGETARIANS, VEGANS AND EVEN CONFESSED BURGER AND BBQ ADDICTS ALIKE ARE CAUGHT UP IN THE JACKFRUIT MEDIA BUZZ!

If you’ve somehow managed to dodge the fruit frenzy and are still in the dark about this mysterious fruit and strong coming trend, here’s what you need to know.

Warning: This knowledge could bring hungry foodie masses to your store!

What is Jackfruit?

Jackfruit is the world’s largest tree-borne fruit, which can weigh up to a massive 45 kilograms! It is indigenous to South America and South-East Asia.

It’s got a tough, green, knobby exterior, sticky sap and odd-looking seed pods that taste like a cross between a pineapple and a pear. But in its unripened form, after several hours of brining, basting and baking, a meaty like substance that resembles shredded chicken or pulled pork is created.

About Upton’s Naturals

Upton’s Naturals is the first company to make pre-seasoned, heat-and-serve, natural jackfruit varieties available in the U.S. market. They successfully launched it in Australia in July and customers are jumping on the craze!

It took Upton’s Naturals about four years to source the right kind of jackfruit from Southeast Asia for its March 2015 product launch in the US. “We use young, green, unripe jackfruit,” says Upton’s co-founder and vice president Nicole Sopko.

The young green fruit ensures the perfect consistency, texture and flavour is achieved.

Varieties of Upton’s Naturals Jackfruit include Bar-B-Que, Chilli Lime Carnitas, Sriracha, Sweet and Smoky, Thai Curry and Original – so your customers can create their own mix of flavours.Upton's Naturals Jackfruit

Why do customers love jackfruit?

Media buzz is pushing jackfruit’s positive status as a tasty plant-based meat substitute and everyone’s listening!

Besides joining the Instagram buzz around the trending food, customers are loving how nutritious and incredibly moreish jackfruit is.

Upton’s Naturals have successfully tapped into several trends to offer products that customer just can’t resist. The range fits perfectly into the international healthy convenience movement, as well as the growing demand for vegan alternatives.

Each packet is also low in saturated fat and cholesterol, low GI, gluten-free, oil-free and soy-free (just to add to jackfruit’s reasons for #trending).
