BACON, BOOZE & BBQ

Nothing stands in the way
of more massive growth
in CBD-infused foods.

bacon flavor and a touch of
sweetness.
"It finishes with a sweet
heat which is very popular,"
Brewer says. "We've developed this flavor as a sausage
blend to start, but I can predict that the combination will
transition into other applications such as a dry marinade
for vacuum tumbling."
Pit-smoked BBQ's
popularity growth has no
end in sight, Brewer says.
Food Channel programs
devoted to the competition
BBQ circuit are fueling
home BBQ aficionados'
interest, Brewer says, and
as they build their skill level,
they're spending money on

better grilling and smoking
equipment.
"This is the crowd that
buys a lot of specialty fresh
and smoked sausage," he
says. "Sausage blends, and
our "Rump Rub" line of
products continue to grow
in sales due to the increased
demand."
Ethnic foods, Indian in
particular, are also trending,
Brewer says. Retailers that
tap into it by cross merchandising menu options pairing
seasonings and components
along with recipes will make
their respective departments
destination points.
Health and nutrition
trends also will continue to

play a huge role in what flavors and cuisines will be hot
in 2020, Brewer says.
"We have a growing group
of customers requesting
lower sugar or salt in their
blends. Non-GMO, MSGfree, and no nitrite are also
hot buttons."
Excalibur's R&D team
stays busy reformulating
current blends in order
to market to the growing
health-conscious consumer
base, Brewer says. "There are
some exciting products out
now that allow us to develop
blends that are healthy and
don't sacrifice flavor or finished product yields for our
meat processing customers."

organic to the product, rather than superimposed just to
cash in on a fad.
"(Health claims) only have a place with emerging
flavors and cuisines if they can play the role of the best
friend to the leading lady - flavor, cuisine," she says.
"You can't just slap a health claim on a product, it must
come from a sincere place. It can't be a marriage of
convenience."
Recently, there seems to also have been an influx
of Australian food and beverages with new bakeries
and restaurants opening, particularly in New York City,
Marks-McGee says. The Flat White (coffee) and Aussie
sausage rolls are two examples.
"Perhaps Australian flavors will trickle into supermarkets and appear in the deli and prepared food sections,"
she says.

CBD-infused food and beverages with a variety of flavor
profiles and new applications."
Also on the rise are tropical flavors, Marks-McGee says.
They've always been popular in spring and summer.
Now, she says, tropical is trending year-round.
The meat category has been a surprisingly strong performer when it comes to tropical flavors, Marks-McGee
says. Take cold cuts and jerky. Bold Aloha Sunshine Turkey
Breast by Boars Head, according to the company, is
"expertly coated with pineapple and hibiscus, and lightly
charred for a sweet and savory traditional luau flavor."
In addition, Country Archer Jerky Co. offers a
Pineapple Pork meat stick that "is bursting with flavor
reminiscent of a tropical luau, hints of real pineapple
hula with delectable antibiotic-free pork for a savory and
not-too-sweet on-the-go treat."

Cannabis madness, tropical trending

Hello, halloumi

Look for CBD-infused foods and beverages to remain
huge heading into the New Year, Marks-McGee says.
"Cannabis is currently the wild west of the industry
and is a cultural phenomenon that is not fully regulated yet," she says. "I expect to see the continuation of

Halloumi cheese is another flavor Webster expects to
see popping up a lot next year. The only thing that could
limit its growth, she says, is accessibility.
"It's definitely going to take off - we'll begin to see
a ton of applications - but it's not something that's

Excalibur Seasoning recently
introduced a new brat flavor

Brewer, Excalibur's vice president of sales and marketing:
