Produce: Snacking
Healthy convenience
Coral Gables, Fla.-based Fresh Del Monte
and its subsidiary Mann Packing Co. are
currently marketing avocados for guacamole
and assortments of fresh fruit and veggies
as snacking products, said Pablo Rivero, the
company's vice president of marketing for
North America.
In addition, Mann Packing's value-added
fresh veggies are commonly consumed
on a variety of party trays alongside other
snacking products such as dip, chips and
pretzels, hummus and cheese.
With snacking still on the upward
trajectory, those and other value-added
products are a perfect fit, Rivero said.
" We believe the fresh-cut produce market
continues to be one of the fastest-growing
categories in the fresh produce segment.
It's largely due to recent consumer trends
favoring healthy and conveniently packaged
ready-to-eat foods. This directly corresponds
with the mix of snacking products over the
years, as both brands have seen a consumer
increase and desire for produce and
convenience snacking. "
Del Monte and Mann Packing are able
to deliver the highest quality fresh cut
ON-THE-GO
GROWTH
San Antonio-based
and snacking products thanks to vertically
integrated operations and just-in-time
delivery, Rivero said.
That ensures great quality from the
company's farms to the end consumer,
unbroken cold chain from field to store,
innovative packaging, no additives or
preservatives, produce prepared and
packaged in our own facilities, state-of-theart
processing equipment, operating under
strict food-safety, quality management
systems.
Due to the surging demand for snack
products, Del Monte and Mann Packing Co.
are currently exploring different snacking
options to share with consumers and retailers
in 2022. The brands will also offer several
promotions this year and will be sharing
those plans with consumers and retailers
soon, Rivero said.
NatureSweet's new to-go
line offers ready-to-eat
snacking tomatoes in a
single-use format and in a
crush-resistance packaging.
The line features two
tomato varieties: Cherbubs
and Constellations.
" We're very excited about
our new to-go innovation,
since it's one that will make
the whole category grow,
and we want to give special
thanks to Kroger for their
terrific support in releasing
this ready-to-eat, very
tasty and healthy snack to
the market, " said Rodolfo
Spielmann, president and
chief executive officer
of NatureSweet.
Help from the real snacking experts
Fresno, Calif.-based raisin giant Sun-Maid is enlisting the help of kids to help it
come up with innovative snacks.
Six kids ages 6-12 will be chosen for the company's second annual Board of
Imagination. Kids will work with Sun-Maid executives to help them make
decision on future product innovations.
The Six kids - five selected via a nationwide search and one via an internal
Sun-Maid employee competition - will receive a $5,000 donation for their
school, $5,000 for a college fund in the form of a 529 donation, and notably,
an entire year's worth of Sun-Maid raisin snacks to enjoy with their classmates.
Through quarterly meetings with the Sun-Maid executive team, the kid board
members are tasked with sparking imagination and creativity, while inspiring
positive change, according to Sun-Maid. They're assigned product-related
challenges and provide feedback that truly informs the direction of the next
snacking innovations.
Board members will be named in March and formally seated in April.
