Tyson to upgrade
prepared foods plant
that makes pretzels
Springdale, Arkansasbased Tyson Foods Inc.
plans to invest $27 million
in upgrades to a prepared
foods plant in Caseyville,
Ill., that produces meatand-cheese stuffed
pretzels.
The Landshire
Sandwiches plant was
previously owned by
AdvancePierre Foods
before it was sold to Tyson
in the summer of 2017.
Tyson said it is adding
three production lines to
the facility which has the
capability of producing
16 million lbs of product a year.
Company spokesman
Derek Burleson says the
upgrade would create
approximately 100 jobs,
with the new plant lines
expected to be operational
by March 2020.
In addition to

pretzels, the facility
produces tuna sandwiches, baked goods and
other foods.

dips. Pretzel buckets featured bite-sized versions
of Auntie Anne's Original,

Pepperoni Pretzel flavors
or its Original Pretzel Dog,
served in a fun, shareable bucket.
Each bucket contained

five servings, which meant

Pretzel Nugget Buckets
and 50 pieces in the Mini
Pretzel Dogs Bucket.
They could be dipped in
Cheese, Hot Salsa Cheese,
Sweet Glaze, Caramel,
Honey Mustard, Marinara,

football stadium presentation for the Pretzel
Nuggets and Mini Pretzel
Dogs as a perfect complement to watch parties.

Mark your calendars
April 26 is National Pretzel
Day. Retailers can take
advantage by running
specials, introducing LTO

charcuterie, artisan beers
and other products.

DITSCH LLC USA, KAREPA - STOCK.ADOBE.COM

GARY GOTTENBUSCH, president
of Cincinnati-based artisan pretzel
specialist Ditsch LLC USA, has a
simple message for retailers who
may be wondering whether or not
they should jump on the pretzel
bandwagon.
"SUPERMARKETS that don't participate will miss out."
THE SUCCESS of another artisan
product is great news for artisan
pretzels, Ditsch says, paving the
way for multiple cross-merchandising opportunities.
"CRAFT beer's expanding popularity begs for artisan pretzels to meet
the quality expectations of more
sophisticated palates, and Ditsch is
the single source soft artisan pretzel
provider."
DITSCH continues to innovate in
the pretzel category, Gottenbusch
says, adding classic twists, buns,
sticks, rolls and bites. Bite sales
in particular, he says, have been
"exploding."
DITSCH also offers its customers new capacity and capabilities in the artisan pretzel space,
Gottenbusch says.
"LABOR is tight and retailers
demand retail-ready packaging,"
he says. "Ditsch offers individually
wrapped pretzels, bagged buns,
sticks, rolls and bites as well as platters and tubs to exceed consumers'
expectations."
DITSCH products are also a great fit
for consumers who are concerned
about genetic modification and
chemicals added to their diets. The
company's pretzels are made with
non-GMO flour, water, salt, yeast
and soy oil.
