2015: A Grocery Odyssey

H

ello, grocers! Do you read me, grocers? Te digital age is here. We’re in it. We’ve been in it. So if you’re not already a part of it, it just may be too late. As we assert in our retail outlook, starting on page 21 of this issue, it’s not enough to have a “technology part” of your business — technology is embedded in every facet of it. I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do. Retailers need to reinvent themselves by merging the technology embraced by the next generation of shoppers with grocers’ core competencies in selecting, merchandising and preparing food. As a Google executive declared at GMA’s Leadership Forum this past summer, companies need to work harder to become “digitally mature,” which means leveraging the web to deliver on their mission. This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it, by swinging too far toward or away from digital. In fact, as Wakefern Food Corp. chief Joe Sheridan noted at the latest food industry summit at St. Joseph’s University, traditional grocers have a key advantage over the likes of Amazon: They’re more human. “How can Amazon make an emotional connection with the consumer?” queried Sheridan, whose company’s ShopRite From Home service is a success story in marrying online with the best of brick-and-mortar retailing. Tat’s the key — combining the aspects of e-commerce that allow grocers to deliver a better customized shopper experience with the food know-how that compels consumers to maintain

loyalty to their neighborhood markets. Skilled associates can look beyond SKUs in helping time-pressed shoppers select the best cuts of meat, the freshest produce, the most cost-efective pantry staples or the most strategic ingredients for convenient weeknight meal solutions. And it’s doubtful any pure e-tailers are going to ofer fresh sushi, made-to-order pizzas or nutrition consulting. “We’re betting on dietitians, culinary, pharmacy — all these need states,” said Sheridan, who expects a tipping point in retail within the next three years, when digital will infuence more than half of all U.S. in-store sales. Striking a winning balance between digital and blood-and-sweat retailing is only part of the equation. As we further explore in this issue, the confguration of supermarkets is being reshaped to better respond to consumers’ evolving shopping habits, as are new products to fulfll their desire for solutions to their daily menu challenges. I’m guessing at least some of you picked up on the references to “2001: A Space Odyssey” woven throughout this column. As we sit here, more than a dozen years beyond the year of director Stanley Kubrick’s classic sci-f meditation, I hope they helped to underscore the lesson that while we must embrace a new normal, we can use it to better advance the lessons of the “old normal” that grocers have spent generations cultivating. Heed both Google and Wakefern: Succeed in creating transformation through technology, but never lose the human connection. And if you’re not going to take action, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye. PG

Retailers need to reinvent themselves by merging the technology embraced by the next generation of shoppers with grocers’ core competencies in selecting, merchandising and preparing food.

Accolades / Insights / Trends / Opportunities

Supervalu’s Haugarth Feted as ‘Trailblazer’

Bravo to Janel S. Haugarth, Supervalu’s EVP and president of independent business and supply chain services, who was honored as the 2014 Trailblazer at the Nov. 12 Progressive Grocer Top Women in Grocery gala celebration at Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel, in Rosemont, Ill. One of Supervalu’s top executives, Haugarth oversees the company’s relationships with about 1,800 independent retail grocery stores across the United States. During her acceptance remarks, Haugarth said: “I’ve had the good fortune to have spent most of my 30-plus years working with our independent customers. This fantastic group of entrepreneurs keeps me passionate about the business, excited about the future and on my toes. They run very successful community-based stores across the United States, from one-store towns to large metropolitan areas. They exemplify the spirit of innovation, passion and local retailing.” Established in 2012, the Trailblazer Award recognizes one food industry executive whose leadership, vision and influence have helped break new ground for women in the retail food industry.

Restaurant Traffic Down as Shoppers Stay Home

As Americans continue to feel the aftereffects of the recession, more consumers are eating meals at home instead of at restaurants, representing one of the single biggest changes in the nation’s eating patterns over the past five years. Although Americans are eating more meals at home (eight out of 10), this doesn’t necessarily mean they’re cooking more meals, according to Harry Balzer, VP of The NPD Group and author of the report. In regard to the increasing popularity of grocers’ fresh prepared sections and easy meal solutions, Balzer says, “We are still leaving the cooking to others,” noting that as restaurant visits shrink, “the manufacturers of our foods are filling more of that need.”

—The NPD Group

Male Malaise

Although research shows that more men are taking an active role in their households when it comes to grocery shopping, many of them don’t enjoy the experience, according to recent insights from The NPD Group, in Port Washington, N.Y. Men now represent 41 percent of all primary grocery shoppers, and many of them — especially those who are single and ages 18-34 — consider it a chore. Men who feel this way, however, are conscientious and take their responsibility seriously by preparing a list most of the time and buying on sale. —The NPD Group

NielseN’s Spotlight

Do family men and women shave more frequently than single guys and gals? so it would seem from the consumption patterns of households including kids, with younger and older bustling families seeing particularly high use of disposable razors. Besides the need to be well groomed (no scratchy stubble!) for one’s significant other on a regular basis, here’s another factor: Multiple members of a household needing to shave (Mom, Dad, maturing teens of both genders) ensures higher turnover of product.

Soup Market Overview l After a 2 percent sales decline between 2008 and 2011, and slow growth (4 percent) between 2011 and 2013, sales of pre-packaged soup are expected to continue growing slowly between 2013 and 2018, from $6.9 billion to $8 billion. l

The slow growth is linked to a number of factors, including the perception that while soup is a relatively healthy meal, it can contain high amounts of sodium, artificial ingredients, and/or preservatives, and competition from

homemade foods, either for economical or other reasons. l

Refrigerated/frozen soup is the smallest segment, with a 4.1 percent share, yet it experienced more rapid gains than any other in the market, growing 24 percent.

Gluten-free claims in soup were most active in North America compared with other regions, accounting for 16 percent of launches in the 12 months to September 2014, with new product development driven by branded players (21 percent, versus 9 percent for private label).

Brands can do more to position their products as dinner options by marketing suitability in cooking, by using hearty/highsatiety ingredients, and by adding on-pack suggestions that include salad or bread to round out a soup dinner. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s room to boost consumption as a snack by focusing on packaging

innovation to facilitate snacking or eating on the go, and by using lighter recipes more suitable for between-meal snacking. l

Private label should continue to fare well, even in an improving economy, given how retailers are looking beyond affordability and also expanding their product lines to include more gourmet, ethnic, chilled and premium offerings.

he Supersuite at Gillette Stadium was the setting for Progressive Grocer’s Retailer of the Year celebration in honor of Ahold USA and its divisions, which took place on Oct. 16, when the New England Patriots hosted the New York Jets for the nationally televised Tursday night game. Hosted by PG Brand Director and Stagnito Business Media VP Jef Friedman and Chief Content Editor Meg Major, the intimate, invitation-only reception provided the event’s valued sponsor partners a special opportunity to celebrate with, and extend personal

congratulations to, Ahold USA and its divisions’ senior leadership teams from Stop & Shop New England, Stop & Shop New York Metro, Giant Landover and Giant/Martin’s. Progressive Grocer’s full Retailer of the Year profle, which appeared in the October issue, highlighted Ahold USA’s divisions’ exceptional community eforts relating to charitable giving, health-and-wellness initiatives and employee engagement. While Freidman made the formal award presentation to Ahold USA COO James McCann, Major discussed the signifcance of this publication’s annual award. “On behalf of our entire team, I’m pleased to congratulate the Ahold USA executives on hand this evening, as well as to your extended family of 120,000 associates throughout the company, for carrying on an enduring legacy of giving back by paying it forward. We hope this award will occupy a place of prominent honor — not only in your ofces, but more importantly, in your hearts — and further serve to inspire you to continue striving for excellence as a great place to work, a great place to shop and a great neighbor.” PG

Jeff Friedman presents a $5,000 donation to Ahold USA’s Our Family Foundation, on behalf of PG and its Retailer of the Year event sponsors, to Kathy Russello, Ahold USA’s EVP of human resources. During the event, Russello was also named president of Our Family Foundation.

under the ShopRite banner, warned that the next three years will witness a digital tipping point for the industry. “If you haven’t reinvented yourself,” Sheridan cautioned, “survival may not be achievable.”

y

Best of Both Worlds Te key will be achieving a balance between digital tools and human interaction that resonates with consumers for the long term. “You can’t be a pure-play on either side,” Sheridan asserted, referring to digital versus brick-and-mortar retailers. Retailers continue to work toward “cracking the code,” he said, and Wakefern perhaps has come closer than many at this point in the industry’s evolution: ShopRite at Home ofers home delivery as well as order at home/pickup at the store, stressing the human connection by ofering personal shopping assistance on digital orders. Even Millennials, the embracers of all things digital, are indicating they’d go to the grocery store more often if provided a hands-on shopping experience with consultants or experts, according to research from Cincinnati-based LoyaltyOne. Responding to the September 2014 study, 84 percent of Millennials (age 18-29) said that being able to redeem rewards/loyalty program points for a session or consultation with a chef or nutritionist would motivate them to shop more with that grocer. “Marketing to Millennials successfully will depend on how well retailers meet their unique needs,” says Fred Tompson, LoyaltyOne retail practice leader. “Ofering sessions with a consultant or expert in the feld helps to develop a meaningful relationship between the retailer and shopper, which leads to increased engagement, loyalty and, ultimately, proftability.” Still, traditional methods linger. According to Te Retail Feedback Group’s July 2014 online survey, coupons delivered via print remain a popular go-to when it comes to saving money on groceries. Half of the 1,200 adult shoppers surveyed who said they visited a conventional supermarket within the past 30 days read printed circulars at home to fnd deals for their last store visit, nearly a third clipped paper coupons from newspapers or other print sources, and a quarter used a printed in-store circular. Ofers through digital channels still have a way to go to catch on with core supermarket shoppers; the survey found that about one in fve respondents used a digital circular or downloaded digital coupons during their last grocery trip, and only a few conducted research on smartphones or used social media promotions to save money. But those all-important Millennials continue to rise in purchasing power; further research indicates that internet users age 45 and younger are more likely to partake in digital grocery shopping activities than older adults.

“Tere is no ‘technology part’ of your company — everything is technology.” Tat statement, made by Amit Singh, president of Mountain View, Calif.-based Google Enterprise, at the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) Leadership Forum this past summer, matter-of-factly lays out the reality in which grocers must operate. Tey must, as Singh further explains, “succeed in creating transformation through technology, or face destruction by competitors that do.” Companies need to work harder to become “digitally mature,” which means leveraging the web to build brands by engaging at scale; employing collective intelligence; working collaboratively and in real time, using data as a core element; and developing technology that’s easy to use. Retailers need to reinvent themselves by merging the technology embraced by the next generation of shoppers with grocers’ core competencies in selecting, merchandising and preparing food. As noted by Joe Sheridan in his presentation at the recent food industry summit at St. Joseph’s University, in Philadelphia, digital will infuence more than half of all U.S. in-store sales by 2016.

e-Tail Details Wakefern and other retailers are rresearching other ways to meld ttechnology with grocers’ selliing know-how: 360-degree portal scanners to speed the checkout process; self-scanners that allow shoppers to bypass checkstands altob gether; and beacons to track shoppers, allowing grocers to ofer targeted, personalized deals aat shelf, are just some of the items they’re looking into. th Online grocery sales are still considered at an introductory stage in the United States, while they’re at a growth stage in places like the United Kingdom, France and the Netherlands, with maturity and saturation still far ahead on the continuum here and abroad. Key drivers of grocery e-commerce are freshness, quality, convenience, urbanization and connectivity. According to research presented at the last GMA Leadership Forum, 70 percent of U.S. consumers are willing to try buying groceries online, while a third of shoppers are willing to pay for same-day delivery. Consumers are spending more time with digital than traditional media, so companies need to deliver experiences that translate to digital content — that was the crux of the issue as discussed at the GMA forum by Lisa Hammitt, VP of marketing for San Francisco-based Salesforce.com, and Karen Sauder, Google’s national industry director for food, beverage and restaurant. Retailers and CPGs must understand consumers’ purchasing criteria, leverage digital for cultural relevancy and turn data into insights. Products are now social, not just functional and emotional; 90 percent would recommend a retailer after a good experience, and digital makes doing that easy and immediate. A joint e-commerce initiative commissioned by Google, IRI and Boston Consulting Group revealed that shoppers regularly switch between digital and physical channels, and CPG companies will need to serve multiple retail models as e-commerce continues to evolve. Of particular note: 5 percent of e-commerce penetration will be 50 percent of all CPG growth over the next fve years. Success, the study asserted, can come through developing an integrated strategy, building an adaptive organization, building brand equity online, revising category management across all channels, resisting old capabilities, and developing joint plans between CPGs and retailers. Te feld continues to grow, with players such as Peapod, Instacart, FreshDirect and Amazon Fresh now being joined by Salt Lake City-based Overstock.com, which last month announced the launch of its Farmers

Market to ofer customers access to home delivery of seasonal, healthy food, grown and produced locally. “We’re integrating small farms, community-supported agriculture and co-ops into our technology so as to allow consumers in their area to buy and arrange delivery through Overstock,” says CEO Patrick M. Byrne. “We want to streamline the farm-to-table process to provide everyone access to healthy food, delivered to their doorstep.” According to Byrne, Overstock is currently able to serve about 20 percent of the U.S. population with farm-fresh food grown near their ZIP code, and intends to provide delivery access to fresh, locally grown food for 70 percent of the U.S. population by the end of 2014. So what do these purely digital retailers mean to traditional grocers? “Tey’re here — we have to play with them,” Wakefern’s Sheridan acknowledged, noting that traditional grocers do have advantages, among them trained associates that humanize the shopping experience. “How can Amazon make an emotional connection with the consumer?” he said. “Food retail is the last ‘local,’ and there’s always going to be an emotional connection with that.”

The Perils of Progress But even in the brick-and-mortar world, technology has its faws. Part of the new normal in retailing is dealing with hackers bent on stealing customers’ private information, and grocers are in no way immune to this threat. Supervalu Inc. and New Albertsons were twice the victims of related data breaches this past year. St. Louis-based Schnucks Markets Inc. recently settled a class action stemming from a breach in 2013, when malicious computer code targeted data in the magnetic stripe of credit and debit cards swiped at 79 of its stores. And the much-publicized data breach that afected millions of Target shoppers more than a year ago eventually resulted in upheaval at the highest levels of the Minneapolis-based discount retailer’s executive suite. Tese will certainly not be the last retailers to be so impacted, according to Tom Field, VP of editorial for Information Security Media Group, a Princeton, N.J.based global media company. “Te big cost is not what it costs to mitigate the breach. It’s a reputational hit,” Field tells Progressive Grocer. “You’re going to have people getting [credit and debit] cards replaced for the second or third time, wondering if it’s safe to shop there.” Field expects consumers to be at the point of thinking “enough is enough” when it comes to data security at retailers. “Every day, there’s something new,” he says. “I don’t want to say consumers have to get used to it, but that’s where we’re at right now with magnetic stripe cards.”


Embedded chip technology, widely used abroad, is more secure, but U.S. businesses have been slow to convert, due to infrastructure expenses. Credit card companies are moving toward the new technology, but “the issue is the merchants’ switching their technology from magnetic stripe to chip,” explains Field. “Tat’s going to be the new obstacle. But I think each breach pushes them further towards making that investment.” —Jim Dudlicek

Formatted Future

After a decades-long Quixotic quest charted by some of the biggest brains in the business — belonging to the likes of real estate teams, consultants, market researchers and universities, among others — the grocery store of the future is decidedly here, manifest in a plethora of shapes, sizes and storefronts, both physical and virtual. Indeed, the most productive supermarket organizations are prioritizing capital expenditures to spur growth, with an emphasis on future-focused store confgurations to best serve the multifaceted needs of today’s multigenerational and multicultural shoppers. With consumer behavior, spending and demographic profles changing rapidly, retail leaders are increasingly adopting omni-channel approaches to engage consumers, using all of the platforms at their disposal, including brick-and-mortar, online and mobile. With e-commerce and digital strategies serving as the dominant themes in food retailing these days, the industry’s ferocious cycle of unparalleled disruption and change continues to intensify.

Strategies for the Multichannel Shopper In a world where the lines between online, mobile and in-store shopping continue to blur, Ralph Crabtree, CTO and co-founder of Norcross, Ga.-based Brickstream, an in-store analytics market leader, afrms, “Consumers have become accustomed to having a diverse array of purchasing choices at their disposal, whether at the register or with the click of a mouse or tap of a touchscreen.” Accordingly, the following two overarching questions are currently in play: How is the evolution of technology impacting grocery shopping today, and how will it impact the grocery store of the future? “To be sure, the traditional grocery store remains a top channel for brick-and-mortar shopping,” says Crabtree, citing Forrester research reported by CNBC in June of this year that found grocery accounting for just 2.2 percent of online sales. “Unlike categories such as electronics or books, there are important sensory aspects to grocery shopping that are difcult to replicate online. People often prefer to check the ripeness of their produce before they buy, or take a

Many retailers need to consider opening smaller prototypes that can make money, albeit at a lower sales threshold.” —Robert Gorland, Matthew P. Casey & Associates

look at what’s available at the prepared foods counter when they want to pick up something fast for dinner.” But as smartphones become ever more pervasive “and consumers ever more technically savvy, grocery chains that fail to adapt their in-store strategies to the multichannel shopper will put themselves at a disadvantage,” warns Crabtree, who recently authored an exclusive PG online guest column on the role that in-store analytics will play in powering next-generation grocery stores. “Te day is coming when ‘smart refrigerators’ might place orders that consumers pick up on the way home from work, or when shoppers will want to check register wait times before they stop at the store.” As such, retailers seeking to increase their odds of competing in the Darwinian low-margin/highstakes grocery slugfest are plotting heavily to adapt to a new world order revolving around the Internet of Tings (IoT) — which refers to a near future in which everything, from clothing to appliances to groceries, is interconnected and tech-enabled to send data back and forth (i.e., recipes sent from a grocer via smartphone based on what items are being dropped in carts) — with more sophisticated, solutions-based concept stores.

Walmart Strives for ‘Endless Aisle’ And so it goes with the planet’s largest retailer, Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart Stores Inc., which over the past 25 years has leveraged its dominance of the large-format supercenter model, and now conversely projects to spend about $1.2 billion to $1.5 billion on e-commerce and digital initiatives as part of its $12 billion 2016 cap-ex fscal budget. “Our business and customers continue to evolve, and so will the way we deploy capital,” Charles Holley, Walmart’s EVP and CFO, told iinvestors at its annual meeting earlier this fall. “We will invest more heavily in e-commerce initiah tives, while temporarily moderating our global physical ggrowth, particularly larger stores. We are focused on creating an endless aisle and appealing to our customers’ cchanging needs.” Targeted Learnings T F its part, the nation’s secondFor lleading mass retailer, Target Corp., is poised to open its sixth C TargetExpress store in the South Park T

a of San Diego in July 2015. At area approximately 19,000 square feet, tthe compact store will be about 14 percent of the size of the retailer’s p ttypical 135,000-square-footer. “Tis is an exciting opportunity to test and learn as we conn tinue exploring new ways to meet our ti gguests’ needs and exceed their expectations,” says John Grifth, EVP of property ti development for the Minneapolis-based national d chain. To that end, Grifth says the TargetExpress experience “will be grounded in this research as well as learnings from the company’s CityTarget stores,” such as checkout lanes confgured to cater to high trafc and smaller basket size. Target currently operates one TargetExpress store in its hometown, and the San Diego location is the ffth store to be slated for a 2015 opening.

Debunking Conventional Wisdom When asked to handicap what he considers to the top store-confguration hot buttons in both the short and near terms, Robert Gorland, VP for Harrisburg, Pa.-based retail real estate specialists Matthew P. Casey & Associates Inc., says, “Te majority of new conventional stores can be smaller without a gaping reduction in either quantity or quality of perishables departments.” However, he notes, “Many operators continue to feel that “a one-size-fts-all larger prototype is necessary” to maintain a strong perishable perception. To the contrary, Gorland says that many would be wise to follow the lead of Whole Foods Market, Publix, Hannaford, Food Lion and, yes, Walmart, all of which he says are enjoying “a certain comfort level operating many stores in the 40,000-total-square-foot range, especially for fll-in locations in less densely populated locations. Many new great sites are becoming harder to fnd,” Gorland continues, and leases, let alone break-evens, are growing increasingly costly. “Since very often, only smaller parcels are available and many vacant, small- to midsize boxes are becoming available,” says Gorland, “many retailers need to consider opening smaller prototypes that can make money,” albeit at a lower sales threshold. “In fact, in many under-stored rural areas, there may be enough sales available to open a smaller, proftable, more space-efcient prototype, versus a higher-risk larger store with excessive grocery and beverage space, excessive checkouts, wider aisles” and, of course, higher break-evens. “Bigger is not always better,” he afrms, “and many smaller supermarkets are more proftable than their larger units,” as a result of more careful product curation, tailored merchandising and more focused customer service. Companion benefts of smaller foor plans are also realized through enhanced operational

efciencies with receiving and inventory management. “With more intelligent, demand-based ordering,” explains Gorland, “retailers can reduce back-room storage and cooler space. For instance, … a total 55,000-square-foot store with a more space-efcient 42,000-square-foot selling space can produce the same sales — and a higher proft — versus a total 65,000-square-foot store with 46,000 selling square feet.” Te bottom line, according to Gorland: “Today’s retailers need to think more about achieving higher sales per square feet, and worry less about market share.”

High Tech + High Touch = Bull’s Eye As he noted in the August 2014 PG Store Design Contest issue, Bill Bishop, chief architect of Barrington, Ill.-based omni-channel consultancy Brick Meets Click, says the successful next-generation store will ofer “a mix of high tech and high touch needed to attract all the spending from a geographic trade area,” while keeping true to its distinctive local roots. Behind this development, Bishop says, is “the emerging appreciation among food retailers to fnd ways to proftably drive sales to their stores

and simultaneously connect with customers before, during and after their shopping experience — including when they’re shopping online.” Accordingly, successful new stores are on a slow but steady path to solve a more complicated set of challenges by: Tailoring the assortment and pricing to customers in specifc trade areas. Ofering services, i.e., online shopping with and without delivery, to satisfy the needs of a broad range of shopping occasions. Developing new store formats and store networks made up of a range of diferent platforms to best serve customers in each trade area, as well as in the larger metro markets, which is where Bishop believes the real creativity will occur. —Meg Major

New and Improved

What products will capture grocery shoppers’ imaginations — and dollars — in 2015 and beyond? To hear Chicago-based market researcher Information Resources Inc. (IRI) tell it, many of the same


types of items that currently claim their attention. Susan Viamari, IRI’s editor of thought leadership, indicates four major currents in edible product innovation, starting with home-based/do-it-myself indulgence. “Consumers have become adept at fnding less expensive ways to treat themselves, and they will hold onto these skills even as the economy continues its slow upward march,” she notes, so items that enable shoppers to pamper themselves at little cost — a bottle of store-brand wine and a pint of gourmet gelato, say — will continue to resonate with shoppers. Next up is favor/texture excitement. According to Viamari, “Consumers … are looking for new favors/ textures that bring them experiences of the world. Marketers are investing to explore new ingredients/ combinations that bring excitement and experiences to everyday eating experiences.” By that standard, the recent mania for sriracha-favored everything wasn’t just a fuke. Also on the list are healthier-for-you items. “a large majority of consumers are working to eat healthier by consuming more of the ‘more desirable’ ingredients (e.g., fber, fruits/veggies, protein) and less of the ‘less desirable’ ingredients (e.g., fat, calories, trans fats),” explains Viamari. “New ingredients and new

technologies are allowing manufacturers to bring new benefts (e.g., beverages with more protein, veggie-infused beverages, cereal with more whole grains) without sacrifcing favor/texture/ experience.” Tat means we can expect more better-foryou item introductions seeking to duplicate the recent breakout success of kale chips. Finally, portable eating solutions and satiation continue to be high priorities for shoppers.” Consumers will continue to look for new ways to fuel up without slowing down,” afrms Viamari. “Innovation that makes it easier to be fuller for longer will continue to do well in the coming years.” Expect packaging to keep pace with consumer demands for portability, while more protein- and fber-rich oferings could serve to stave of hunger.

2015 Retail Outlook development are similar to those behind edible items, including a home-based living/do-it-myself movement, and a desire for products deemed better for people and the environment. An additional trend shaping future nonfood offerings is the consumer desire for powerful results. “Whether it’s a salon-quality treatment in the home for less, or making the home cleaner with

minimal efort, consumers are looking to save time and efort with products that bring the power into their own hands,” asserts Viamari. Spanning all store categories, however, is an ongoing preoccupation with price. “Value will remain a key concern for consumers — they will be looking for solutions that meet their needs and wants at a price point that is deemed afordable,” she says. “To deliver value, look for new packages/pack sizes — perhaps packages/pack sizes that vary across channels/banners — as manufacturers/retailers work to really dial in on consumer needs/wants at a granular level.”

Breakfast and Beauty When asked which categories were likely to see the largest infux of products and why, Viamari replies: “Breakfast-related innovation has really escalated, and it will continue to be strong in the coming years. ‘Te most important meal of the day’ is essential to healthier eating habits that consumers are looking to adopt.” Over in nonfoods, “beauty innovation is strong, spurred on by healthier beauty,” she notes. “New ingredients and technologies will continue to enable growth of this segment in the coming years, and consumers will continue to invest in these products as a means of looking and feeling good for less.” Attention Getters “Brands that provide powerful results and exciting experiences are sure to capture attention and share of spending,” concludes Viamari. “Wellnessrelated products will continue to capture increased share of spending, and wellness will continue to be broadly defned. Products that provide powerful and long-lasting results will also do well in the coming year, as consumers look to maximize value. Experiential living will also capture attention, since [such products] allow consumers to indulge without breaking the budget.” —Bridget Goldschmidt PG For more Retail Outlook insights, visit Progressivegrocercom/2015 RetailOutlook.

n time for this holiday season, Barilla has joined forces with e-grocer Peapod to ofer busy Chicago-area families Peapod Meal Kits featuring Barilla Recipes. Exclusive to the area, the kits are delivered to customers’ front doors with all of the ingredients pre-measured and pre-packaged, enabling shoppers to create, in 30 minutes or less, a pasta meal — either Parmesan Crusted Chicken with Spaghetti or Baked Rotini — feeding at least four, at less than $5 per serving. “We strive to bring great fresh food and convenience into our customers’ lives, and easy meal solutions are a huge part of that,” noted Tony Stallone, VP of fresh markets at Skokie, Ill.-based Peapod, an Ahold USA company, at the time of the kits’ early-November launch. Stallone described the ofering as “not only … a simple way to provide a fresh, great-tasting meal that appeals to the entire family, [but also] a terrifc value.” He added that another big reason for teaming with Barilla was “because pasta is one of American families’ favorite foods.” Although the development of the kits drives home Barilla’s commitment to helping shoppers eat well without having to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, the manufacturer of sauces and pasta has come up with other creative ways to help out at dinnertime. “Because one-third of shoppers are looking for a solution for tonight’s meal, we have developed in-store tools that ofer both pasta and sauce,” says Debbie Zefting, director of customer and shopper development at Bannockburn, Ill.-based Barilla America. “We also know that, especially [at] traditional grocery stores, customers are looking for excitement and fun, so, in addition to our eye-catching merchandising, we have utilized educational in-store signage and display pallets, all focused on delicious and fast meal solutions.” One example given by Zefting is the company’s

30 Meals in 30 Minutes program, which “provided shoppers with a variety of fun recipes, developed by Barilla’s culinary team, which utilized Barilla pasta and sauces.” But Barilla’s not the only company to climb aboard the meal solutions gravy train, so to speak. “Sauces play an important role in providing variety to weekly menu planning,” afrms Hannah Dupes, associate director of marketing for condiments and sauces at Pittsburgh-based Heinz. Available in Traditional, Meat, and Parmesan & Romano favors, the company’s recently introduced Classico Family Favorites line “is proving to be an instant hit, bringing new users and incremental consumption to an otherwise stagnant category,” notes Dupes, who points out that the products “have taste profles crafted with families in mind. Te rich and smooth texture works well on a variety of dishes, ranging from pasta to casseroles and other baked Italian favorites. However, the secret ingredient that makes Classico Family Favorites sauces even better is the half-cup of vegetables per serving.” As well as being featured in retailer circulars, digital campaigns and displays throughout the country to drive awareness and trial, the new product was touted by mommy bloggers throughout the summer, driving national sales by providing recipe ideas and personal reviews, recounts Dupes.

Not Just for Pasta “Sauces will continue to evolve past pasta and onto alternate host foods like chicken and fsh,” Dupes

Mayo and Ketchup in the Asian/ethnic section, and others will carry them alongside the traditional mayo and ketchup products. We are also looking to make it easier for consumers by placing the sauces and condiments near meat and vegetables. In working with our retail partners, we just want to make it easy for the shoppers to come up with a convenient way to create a unique eating experience.”

FAST PREP FOR SUCCESS Barilla has developed a range of easy dinner options, including meal kits for Chicagoarea shoppers, in partnership with e-grocer Peapod, and the 30 Meals in 30 Minutes program at retail.

believes, and that movement is already apparent at stores operated by Lakeland, Fla.-based Publix Super Markets, where “there are a variety of skillet sauces that provide meal solutions for our customers,” observes Media and Community Relations Manager Brenda Reid. “It’s a growing category that many of our suppliers are introducing to their product mix. Publix has made many of these items available to our customers on the aisle with instant soups and broths, because many of the same suppliers ofer shelf-stable sauces.” Adds Reid: “Our customers look for convenient, quick and easy recipes to try, and many of these products ofer solutions to them.” According to Schaumburg, Ill.-based Nielsen, while the overall condiment, gravy and sauce category was up only 1 percent in dollar sales at U.S. food stores with sales of more than $2 million, for the 52 weeks ended Oct. 25, 2014, and spaghetti/ marinara sauces were down 1.7 percent, cooking sauces, like those featured at Publix, saw an impressive 9.6 percent uptick and Asian sauces logged a 3.1 percent increase. Tat last statistic is good news for Lee Kum Kee, a Hong Kong-based provider of Asian sauces and condiments, whose products are sold worldwide. Te company targets those in search of not only no-fuss meals, but also true culinary adventures. “Consumers are looking for more than just a simple solution, they want a more sophisticated culinary food experience, one defned by distinctive favors, foodie narratives [and] freshness,” emphasizes David Crocker, general manager of U.S. mainstream retail and Central & South America at Lee Kum Kee. “New, exciting specialty foods can help [shoppers] create their own unique experience.” A major way to reach consumers, notes Crocker, is through higher-profle placement in grocery stores. “Lee Kum Kee has traditionally been in the Asian or ethnic aisle of the supermarket, but we are testing placing the products in locations that may be more frequently visited,” he says. “For example, our Panda Brand Ready Sauces are in some ‘meal solution’ sets, some stores will carry [our] Sriracha

Dressings and More Healthy, wholesome ingredients are also important to consumers, as Victoria Hoke, COO at Irvine, Calif.-based namesake company Victoria’s Garden Grown, is quick to point out. “Any time consumers can fnd a product that enhances their meal without enhancing their waistline or flling them with regret, it’s a winner,” she notes. “Also, they want to feel they can trust the manufacturer behind the product; they want to know the company feeding them cares about them and their family.” In concocting the company’s line of “cleanlabel” jarred products featuring organic vegetables, which launched this past spring, “I use kale, red beets, red bell peppers and carrots to create healthy, favorful dressings that are low in calories — 15 to 20 per serving — fat-free, low-sodium, gluten-free and vegan,” continues Hoke. “Te line is also completely non-GMO and manufactured here in the U.S. Victoria’s Garden Grown works in so many applications — as a dressing for things like salads and vegetables, as well as a marinade for meat dishes … and a stir-in for starches like quinoa, rice and lentils.” Hoke particularly enjoys getting up close and personal when hawking the six-SKU line. “I love doing in-store demos to promote product as well as consumer events like marathon expos — consumers get to try the product, plus I hand out recipe cards to give them ideas on how to use it,” she enthuses. “Next year, I’ll be doing those, along with family expos, and vegan and gluten-free conferences, among others. I also am starting an online media campaign to help drive customers to stores.” Additionally, Hoke has had coupons created to distribute during demos and events, as well as to ofer to interested retailers to use in POS displays. So far, the results of these eforts have been encouraging, to say the least. “Tere has never been a dressing like this before, but based on initial feedback from consumers, this is something they want and have been looking for,” asserts Hoke. “Victoria’s Garden Grown has been doing well in the initial stores [where it’s ofered], and when I go to consumer events, I sell out of product.” PG For more about sauces and meal solutions, visit Progressivegrocer.com/saucesmealsolutions.

Thinking Outside the

ICEBOX Demographics, demands for added value driving design of packaging for refrigerated and frozen foods. By Jim Dudlicek

O Products and packaging will do a great job in telling a story that creates loyalty, but it must be different and innovative.”

—Andy Anderson, Brookshire Grocery Co.

verall food trends are being refected in their packaging, from specifc characteristics shoppers are seeking to that all-important demographic that promises to dominate the retail scene in the not-too-distant future, and products in the refrigerated and frozen sections of the grocery store are no exception. “Te characteristics of Millennials will help guide trends in packaging,” says Andy Anderson, dairy category manager for Tyler, Texas-based supermarket chain Brookshire Grocery Co. “Products and packaging will do a great job in telling a story that creates loyalty, but it must be diferent and innovative. Tis is in part why a retro package with a modern design or graphic and a healthy ofering will have broad appeal.” For brands to matter to Millennials, “average” is no longer enough, asserts Julie Henderson, VP of communications for the Harrisburg, Pa.-based National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association (NFRA). “A whole new level of engagement, authenticity and purpose is necessary.” Citing a July 2014 Mintel food packaging trends report, Henderson notes that Millennials

| Progressive Grocer | Ahead of What’s Next | December 2014

are looking for information about sustainability in manufacturing and packaging, as well as recycling information on the package. “Younger consumers, specifcally those 18 to 34, are more likely to look for functional packaging, including packaging that you can cook food in. Tis type of packaging reduces preparation time, as well as the amount of equipment required to prepare food.” Te report continues: “Future growth of the frozen and refrigerated categories will be dictated by innovation eforts and connecting with consumers who matter the most, along with the ability to create demand across diverse population segments.”

Clean Labeling Consumers are more educated than ever regarding labeling and nutritional facts, “and if they’re not, the information is at their fngertips,” notes Dave Marcus, Brookshire’s frozen category manager. “Because of this, we are seeing reductions in ingredient statements, reducing the amount of additives and ingredients consumers are not familiar with. We are also seeing more callouts on the front of the package for protein content, lower salt, gluten-free and other health-related attributes.”

BREAKFAST BITES Eggo Bites Pancakes, in single-serve microwaveable pouches, reflect an ongoing demand for convenience.

of trans fats, artifcial preservatives and GMOs. “Clean-label claims are tracked on nearly a quarter of all food and beverage launches, with manufacturers increasingly highlighting the naturalness and origin of their products,” Henderson notes. “With growing concerns over the lack of a defnition of ‘natural,’ however, there is a need for more clarity and specifc details. Frozen and refrigerated foods perfectly ft this trend. Frozen foods are made from real ingredients picked at the peak of ripeness and fash-frozen. Refrigerated foods are made from real, simple, fresh, farm-grown ingredients.” Retailers are stressing health-and-wellness messaging in their store layouts, product assortment and advertising, Henderson adds. “As consumers become more discerning about what they eat, manufacturers, retailers and distributors all have to address issues like quality, taste and nutrition, as well as take responsibility for proper handling to keep frozen and refrigerated foods at their peak of quality,” she says.

Anderson notes that the continued development of added benefts in conventional items is a current trend. “We see some of this in dairy with added protein, allnatural stabilizers and even which sweeteners are used,” he says. “Although health is a concern of the consumer, indulgence is also a purchase motivator. According to Henderson, food has become a “badge of values,” and consumers want to know where their food comes from and how it was processed. “Product claims related to fat content and natural ingredients make up the largest dollar sales for products with health claims,” she says. According to Nielsen LabelTrends, this includes claims that are called out on the product packaging, but doesn’t include any claims listed in the Nutrition Facts panel. Examples cited by the NFRA: Pinnacle Foods’ sustainable farming process for its Van de Kamp’s and Mrs. Paul’s brands’ 100 percent whole-fsh flets, and Smart Balance Purely Better spread, free

Convenience A continued demand for more convenient sizes and other physical qualities also is impacting refrigerated and frozen food packaging. “As household size declines, consumers are asking for smaller, convenient sizes; longer shelf life; and even aseptic qualities pertaining to dairy products,” Anderson says. “Single-serve can range from a 4-ounce to a 24-ounce package, while convenience can mean a bundle of individual serving-sized packages for families with children. In addition, seniors are needing easy-open or resealable packaging.” Convenience factors signifcantly into consumers’ purchasing decisions, afrms Sean Brady, marketing director of ready meals for Duncan, S.C.-based Sealed Air’s Food Care Division. Brady notes that the “2014 Power of Meat Report,” an annual Sealed Air-sponsored consumer survey commissioned by the American Meat Institute (AMI) and Food Marketing Institute (FMI), found that retailers sold more heat-and-eat and ready-to-eat items in 2013 than in each of the fve previous years. “With this growth in demand comes added pressure to deliver packaging features

and formats that accommodate consumers’ busy lifestyles,” Brady says. But despite the addition of convenience-friendly features, Brady admits that expanded favor profling — and not the packages themselves — is responsible for the greatest shift in the refrigerated and frozen food segment. “Retailers can now ofer a broader range of regional and international meals to accommodate consumers’ broadening tastes,” he observes. “Additionally, these formats enable retailers to capitalize on seasonal, limited-timeofer and specialty diet options.” Tom Domaracki, senior dairy category manager at Sunbury, Pa.-based Weis Markets, notes that home storage is a factor. “Manufacturers are designing more space-efcient packages that allow us to ofer more variety to our customers in the same amount of space. Tese new packages also make it easier for customers to save space in their own refrigerators and freezers. Resealable, stand-up packaging is also a new trend that not only allows for space savings, but also allows customers to only use what they need, while the rest can remain fresh for future meals.”

Refrigerated & Frozen Foods Packaging

SQUARE DEAL Unilever’s new rectangular spread tub delivers multiple efficiencies.

While some U.S. retailers have been hesitant to fully embrace new packaging innovations for frozen foods, there is still a significant opportunity to leverage them for growth in a challenging segment.” —Sean Brady, Sealed Air

Busy lifestyles have led Americans to snack more than ever before, and manufacturers are making it easier for consumers to decide if a given food product constitutes a meal or snack, Henderson observes, whether identifed from the packaging, portion size or type of ingredients. For example, breakfast items are packaged in single servings and stand-up pouches to infuence “anytime, anywhere consumption.” Convenience categories lead the list of top-selling frozen food products, with $14.1 billion spent on frozen prepared foods, $5.2 billion spent on frozen vegetables and $2.1 billion spent on frozen baked goods, according to NFRA. “With a variety of foods and beverages, the refrigerated dairy aisle is home to endless snacking possibilities,” Henderson adds. “Connecting with the strong growth in consumer snacking demand, snacks, spreads and dips found in the dairy case have seen back-toback years of sales growth with higher prices and increased promotional support.” Some examples in this area: Eggo Bites Wafes, in a single-serving microwaveable pouch, ready in 30 seconds and maple-favored so they can be enjoyed without syrup; Crystal Farms Nibblers, a line of favored cheese snacks in single-serve, 1.5-ounce, stand-up bags; Bob Evans Breakfast Bakes, individually wrapped for a convenient breakfast on the go or a hearty snack that’s ready after less than four minutes in the microwave; Stoufer’s Mac Cups, macaroni and cheese in three favors and microwaveable in three minutes; and Drumstick Minis frozen novelties. Such products refect a trend toward miniaturization, according to Roz O’Hearn, communications and brand afairs director for Solon, Ohio-based Nestlé USA. Te demand for snacks and mini-size products is “driven by Millennial shoppers who value natural/organic and sustainability, and do not eat the traditional three square meals a day, but instead graze throughout the day,” O’Hearn explains. “Miniaturization is also driven by the move away from low-fat, low-cal dieting towards eating smaller portions of the real thing.”

New and Reinvented Packaging has become a popular way to launch “new products.” According to the NFRA, new food product packaging has increased 89 percent since 2009, while the percentage of new products has declined 37 percent. “Rather than introduce completely new products, manufacturers opted for repackaging their existing products to attract new

| Progressive Grocer | Ahead of What’s Next | December 2014

audiences,” Mintel reports. Some examples: Ore-Ida Tater Tots’ 60th-anniversary packaging, available between July and November this year; Mrs. T’s Pierogies’ Pittsburgh Steelers on-package promotion; and Unilever North America’s recent relaunch of its I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! spread in a redesigned recyclable rectangular tub that’s not only more space-efcient in the refrigerator, but also top-rack dishwasher-safe so the container can be reused. Ian Speck, frozen category manager at Weis Markets, says the greatest concern for retailers is more efcient packaging. “Customer demand for variety grows daily, and no retailer can aford to expand every store in a chain to keep up,” Speck says. “Tus, the best alternative lies with the manufacturers to create space-saver packaging.” For the retailer’s part, Speck says Weis Markets is trying to reduce case packs to get better turns. Meanwhile, he adds, “We’re seeing more stand-up gusseted bags with tighter footprints and more multidirectional boxes to help with pack-out on shelves.” Packaging innovation represents a signifcant growth opportunity for retailers “willing to view it as more than a cost of doing business,” says Sealed Air’s Brady. “While breaking away from traditional formats may require time, equipment and resource investment, retailers beneft when operational efciencies throughout the supply chain enable smoother delivery of convenience, cost efciency and quality to consumers.” Brady says vacuum packaging can address freshness and quality concerns; it’s ideal for meat and poultry, as consumers are likely to store these items in the refrigerator or freezer before they prepare them. Used for case-ready red meat and poultry, the Cryovac Darfresh on Tray package features a leak-proof vacuum seal that preserves freshness in a refrigerator or freezer; its 3D vertical product display enhances merchandising by granting consumers a clearer view of the product inside. “While some U.S. retailers have been hesitant to fully embrace new packaging innovations for frozen foods, there is still a signifcant opportunity to leverage them for growth in a challenging segment,” Brady says. “Te next big thing for the refrigerated and frozen foods segment may not be a new package itself, but rather a better understanding of how to utilize the innovative technologies that are already available on the market.” PG Read more about packaging for refrigerated and frozen foods at Progressivegrocer.com/frigfrozpackaging.

ROCKING THE PRODUCE SECTION New packaging solutions, like Chelan Fresh Marketing’s Rockit, make fruit snacking on the go easier.

It makes the consumption of cherries a one-handed experience.”

—Mac Riggan, Chelan Fresh Marketing

Produce

In terms of trends on the exhibition foor, the prevalence of produce-based snacks was undeniable. According to the recent Nielsen Global Snacking Survey, nearly half of respondents admitted to snacking instead of eating meals. Indeed, snack sales are soaring. Global snack sales totaled $374 billion annually as of March 2014, up 2 percent year over year, according to Nielsen retail sales data. In North America alone, snack sales account for $124 billion. As snacks continue to replace three squares, health-conscious consumers are looking to the produce department for sustenance solutions. When Nielsen’s Global Snacking Survey asked consumers around the world what one snack they would choose above all others, fresh fruit was the overwhelming response. Schaumburg, Ill.-based Nielsen found that 18 percent of global respondents chose fresh fruit from a list of 47 options.

On-the-go Fruit While many fruits, from apples to bananas, are naturally designed for grab-and-go consumption, a host of innovative produce suppliers are introducing new ways to enjoy these sought-after snacks. Chelan Fresh Marketing, for example, showcased its new Rockit at the PMA Summit. Te Rockit is a high-graphic sleeve, similar to tennis ball packaging, which contains four or fve smaller New Zealand apples. “It’s about getting fresh fruit into people’s hands,” says Chelan Director of Marketing Mac Riggan, who notes that the Rockit can be sold in nontraditional venues like vending machines. “Te Rockit provides great convenience

| Progressive Grocer | Ahead of What’s Next | December 2014

in a practical delivery package,” he says. “It can be thrown in a golf bag, gym bag or sent to school or camp for lunch.” Te Chelan, Wash.-based company also introduced the Cup ’O Cherries, an 8-ounce cup of washed and de-stemmed cherries that features a smart lid: One section of the lid dispenses cherries, while a diferent compartment provides a place for pits. “It makes the consumption of cherries a onehanded experience,” asserts Riggan. “Tey can be enjoyed like a cup of Starbucks while driving or just on the go.” Tom Lange Co., of Springfeld, Ill., introduced its new Actual Produce line of grab-and-go fruit cups at the Fresh Summit. Part of Tom Lange’s “Foods with Benefts” strategy, Actual Produce was developed to meet consumer demand for fresher, healthier and more convenient products. Te Actual Produce fruit cups are single-serve containers that hold 5 ounces of washed, handcut product. Currently, there are six varieties, all of which are processed regionally for freshness. As consumers eat the fruit, the Actual Produce reverse label and tagline are revealed: “Eat. Smile. Repeat.” When it comes to enjoying fruit on the go, what could be easier than drinking a vitamin-rich juice blend? Tat’s the idea behind Stemilt Growers’ newly launched Fresh Blenders, a product line of 5-pound pouch bags of both sweet and tart apple varieties that’s designed to fuel the burgeoning blender and juicer trend. “Juicing and blending smoothies at home has taken of in recent years, and continues to grow in popularity among consumers across all age demographics,” said Roger Pepperl, marketing director for the Wenatchee, Wash.-based company. “Fresh Blenders is the perfect platform to directly market to this crowd and deliver them a great grab-and-go value pack.” Te bags are shipped in a Fresh Blenders display-ready carton.

Just 4 Kids Marketing to children was top of mind at this year’s Fresh Summit. It was a topic of discussion during the annual State of the Industry address delivered by PMA CEO Bryan Silbermann and PMA President Cathy Burns, as well as the concept behind the Just 4 Kids section, a special part of the New Products Showcase dedicated to companies with innovative products and services geared toward children.

Among the novel and tasty kid-friendly oferings were Bolthouse Farms Kids, a line of refrigerated fruit- and veggie-based snacks including Smoothies, Fruit Tubes and Veggie Snackers; Snapz premium fruit and veggie crisps made with real fruit and vegetables, using a low-temperature, multistep dehydration process; and Te Oppenheimer Group’s Cookie Monster mesh bag flled with easy-to-peel fruit. Te last product is the result of the PMA and Sesame Workshop Eat Brighter! campaign, as are Sunkist’s “Sesame Street”-themed 10-pound navel orange carton and polybag, and its Giro bag of easy-peel mandarins. “Childhood obesity is one of the most pressing issues facing our country,” observes Joan Wickham, manager of advertising and public relations for Sunkist Growers, in Valencia, Calif. “Fighting this epidemic requires powerful industry partnerships, and at Sunkist we believe that is exactly what PMA and the Sesame Workshop are ofering with the Eat Brighter! movement.” Sharing her impressions of Fresh Summit, Wickham notes “how inspiring it was to see so many diferent industry players supporting the movement in various ways at PMA Fresh Summit to help encourage families to eat more produce as part of a healthier lifestyle.” Tere were also numerous products geared to older kids and teens in the healthier-for-you snack category. Crunch Pak, of Cashmere, Wash., has

| Progressive Grocer | Ahead of What’s Next | December 2014

teamed with the National Basketball Association (NBA) to ofer Fit Snackers, a combo package of sliced fresh apples, cheese and pretzels, featuring several of the league’s most popular players on the label. “We want to encourage kids of all ages to eat more fruits and vegetables,” says Tony Freytag, Crunch Pak SVP of sales and marketing. “NBA Fit Snackers are portable, they’re easy to toss into a bag and go, and they make healthy eating fun and appealing.” Mann Packing, which displayed its Snap Pea Sensations kits in the New Products Showcase, shone the spotlight on its Mann’s Veggies and Hummus fresh vegetable tray, featuring Sabra Classic hummus, in the Just 4 Kids showcase. As part of the Salinas, Calif.-based company’s year-long 75th anniversary celebration, three Mann employees participated in an inaugural Tour de Fresh fundraising bike ride from Salinas to Anaheim, where the Fresh Summit was underway. “It’s a great cause that supports something we’re all very passionate about at Mann’s — addressing the child obesity issue and doing our part to contribute to the health and well-being of children,” says Craig Grantham, director of sales operations and Mann’s Tour de Fresh team captain. Te money raised by the Mann Tour de Fresh team was earmarked for school salad bars.

Sweet and Savory Who doesn’t love a little yin and yang in their diet? Te snack industry has long capitalized on treats combining sweet and savory, and now produce suppliers are getting into the game with healthful alternatives. At the PMA Fresh Summit, Los Angelesbased Melissa’s debuted Clean Snax, a line of healthful snacks in four mixes: Almond, Pumpkin, Coconut and Cranberry. Each clamshell package contains approximately 30 lightly salted, bite-size squares made from nutrient-packed chia and faxseed sweetened with honey. Te crunchy little squares are shelf-stable for six months, and all varieties are gluten-free. Mariani Nut Co. added fve new favors to its seasoned almond line: Spicy Cajun, Smoked Seasoned, Chili Lime, Sweet BBQ and Vanilla Roast. Te entire seasoned line is now all-natural and available in 6-ounce, resealable zip-lock foil bags. Tese new sweet-and-savory favors join Wasabi &

“We continuously see the growth in the better-for-you snack category,” notes Mio Sakata, director of brand marketing. “Produce purchasers — moms, etc. — are loyal users of our brand.” Harvest Snaps has rapidly expanded distribution of its six regular Harvest Snaps favors: Lightly Salted, Caesar, Black Pepper, Wasabi Ranch, Tomato Basil and Onion Tyme.

#Branding Opportunities As produce continues to move from a commodity business to a brand-driven industry, messaging and communication are crucial to success. “Managing a brand is becoming more and more complex, with consumers demanding information not only about quality, how products are grown and sustainability, but also about the social


causes a company supports, environmental policies and labor standards, to name a few,” asserts Meg Miller, director of public relations for the Newark, Del.-based Produce Marketing Association. Te industry’s response has been game-changing. To illustrate this innovation, Miller points to recent developments in produce packaging: eye-catching graphics, clear windows that allow the consumer to see the contents, reclosable/resealable convenience, clearly visible logos, and an invitation to communicate through websites, QR codes, social media and more. As shown by that last item, the produce industry is embracing social media, engaging consumers and encouraging dialogue, observes Miller. Te Twitter explosion at this year’s Fresh Summit is just one example. Duda Farm Fresh Foods, of Oviedo, Fla., was part of #TeamFreshSummit, a social street team project that invited 16 food bloggers to blog live from the PMA show foor. Trough the power of social media, Duda was able to draw attention to its new Dandy line of ready-to-eat radishes, including Ready Radishes, Radish Coins and Radish MiniSticks. “We understand and appreciate the power of bloggers, and we are excited to have these bloggers act as Dandy brand ambassadors and create a positive association for the whole fresh produce industry,” says Nichole Towell, director of marketing. NatureSweet Tomatoes, of San Antonio, has been inspiring consumers to give back this holiday season.

The

Blend Theory Mushroom mavens back a new program expected to yield explosive category growth. By Jennifer Strailey

strategic shift in the national promotion of fresh fungi may well lead to 2015 making retail history as the Year of the Mushroom. “Traditionally, the Mushroom Council hasn’t done much direct promotion in the retail landscape, but for 2015, we have a new plan with our retail blendability promotions,” says Kathleen Preis, marketing manager for the San Jose, Calif.-based council. Mushroom blendability — the culinary technique of blending fresh chopped mushrooms with ground meat in entrées such as hamburgers, meatballs and meatloaf — has taken of largely in the noncommercial foodservice segment, including schools, health care facilities and corporate dining, the council notes. “One of the hottest trends in mushrooms today is blendability,” concurs Rick Angelucci, general manager of Phillips Gourmet Inc., in Kennett Square, Pa. “Tere are many institutions using a blend of 50 percent mushroom and 50 percent beef to make healthier burgers, meatballs, tacos and meatloaves, which lowers the fat and calories by 25 percent to 30 percent, and saturated fat by 35 percent or more,” he explains. Te Mushroom Council’s new approach, which celebrates not only the nutritional benefts, but also the enhanced favor, of mushroom blendability, is targeting grocery stores and foodservice.

“We believe 2015 will go down in history as a pivotal year for the Mushroom Council and the evolution of mushroom blendability,” says Council Chairman Anthony D’Amico, president of To-Jo Mushrooms, in Avondale, Pa. In 2015, the council’s more tailored, retailerspecifc promotions will replace its successful Swap It or Top It campaign, which debuted in 2014. Swap It or Top It attracted some 54 retail participants, Preis notes, including Sunbury, Pa.-based Weis Markets. “Tis summer, Weis Markets promoted a mushroom-blended burger every Saturday, and also featured the campaign in its Healthy Bites Magazine,” Preis observes. Te grocer demoed burgers crafted from a blend of mushrooms, blue cheese and beef. “Te results were extraordinary,” Preis says of Weis’ 60 percent promotion-long sales spike in all three categories: mushrooms, meat and blue cheese.

Raley’s to Launch Blendability To pilot its 2015 blendability campaign, the Mushroom Council is partnering with West Sacramento, Calif.-based Raley’s Supermarkets. Bob Murphy, VP of marketing and sales for Premier Mushrooms Inc., in Colusa, Calif., is spearheading the collaboration on behalf of the council. “Tis is a very exciting time for the mushroom trade. It’s the frst time that not only the Mushroom Council, but the whole industry, really believes in the blend,” says Murphy. Raley’s, which is in the process of remodeling three of its stores to accommodate chef-led kitchens, is slated to launch the blendability program in the revamped stores in the next few months.

as well as the fact that mushrooms contribute to all meal dayparts — breakfast, lunch and dinner” — have put this nutrient-rich produce item in more and more shopping baskets, she points out. “Te white button mushroom is still the leader in sales in the mushroom category, but the specialty mushrooms are gaining a lot of momentum, which we think is due to all of the cooking shows on TV,” says Phillips Gourmet’s Angelucci. “Everyone wants to be a gourmet chef, and mushrooms like portabella, baby bella and shiitake ft right into their meal preparation.”

Down the road, Murphy envisions making the blendability campaign available to all grocers, even those without on-site chefs. “Another phase will be kits,” he explains. Tis will allow retailers to provide customers with the opportunity to create a freshly prepared meal featuring a blend of ground beef and mushrooms at home in minutes. Te Mushroom Council campaign will be supported by retailer-targeted POS, as well as consumer outreach. “Social media will certainly play a big role in these promotions,” says Preis. “We’ll also use geographic targeting, by inviting local customers to come to Raley’s, for example, when we’re sampling blended burgers at a particular store.” A new microsite, featuring blendability recipes, marketing materials and more, will become accessible from the Mushroom Council website in 2015.

The Boom in ’Shrooms Mushroom sales of all types are on the rise. According to the Mushroom Council, brown mushrooms were up 7.1 percent for the 52 weeks ending Sept. 7, 2014, specialty mushrooms were up 10.5 percent for the same time period, and white mushrooms — the longtime category leader — registered steady 0.3 percent growth. Te most encouraging aspect of this trend, according to Preis, is that increased sales of brown and specialty mushrooms haven’t negatively impacted sales of the category leader. “Tey aren’t cannibalizing sales from white mushrooms,” she notes. True growth in the mushroom category is the result of several factors, continues Preis. “Mushroom Council promotions, greater consumer awareness about the culinary and health benefts of mushrooms,

Flavor and Nutrition “One of the points we want to get across with blendability is that mushrooms are not a fller. Tey’re a gourmet item that enhances the favor,” Premier’s Murphy asserts. “It’s like people who love garlic adding garlic to their favorite dish.” While the new blendability campaign spotlights the culinary benefts of adding mushrooms to ground beef, such as favor, moisture and overall texture, the nutritional benefts are equally compelling. Cutting fat, cholesterol and calories is enticing to many consumers, as are favor and convenience. “As we get more information out about how easy it is to incorporate mushrooms into diets, mushrooms for the frst time have moved form side dish to center plate,” Murphy says. “People are using mushrooms like portabellas in place of hamburgers for Meatless Mondays, or cutting them like steak. It’s the versatility of mushrooms that has them being used more and more every day.” Angelucci agrees: “Today’s consumer is very healthconscious. Mushrooms ft right into a healthy diet by being low in calories, fat-free and cholesterol-free, not to mention having antioxidants and vitamins to help maintain the immune system and provide energy.” Sustainability When it comes to the hottest trends in mushrooms, Bill Litvin, SVP of sales and the national account manager for Temple, Pa.-based Giorgio Fresh Co., says organic and sustainable continue to tick consumers’ boxes and top shopping lists. “Consumers are doing their homework to constantly search for healthy products,” Litvin says. “Tey are also increasingly cognizant to purchase products from retailers or companies like Giorgio who make sustainability practices a priority.” Giorgio grows its mushrooms in a fully organic substrate, and is invested in integrated pest management. Te company is equally focused on favor and convenience, having recently launched a line of Stufed Baby Bella Mushrooms with zesty fllings in three favors: Parmesan Cheese, Artichokes and Spinach; Cheese and Imitation Bacon Bits; and Imitation Flavored Crab.

Supermarkets make up the bulk of non-florist sales, with roughly 34 percent share of total cut-flower sales, a share expected to rise over the next few years.

PMA (Fresh) Perspectives By Eileen O’Leary

Seeds of Change

A study finds floral at the forefront of unprecedented sales, with consumer demand central to success.

t’s that all-important time of the year again for retail, and foral retailing is no exception. Traditionally, 30 percent of foral sales occur around the December holidays, according to industry data from the Alexandria, Va.-based Society of American Florists. Tis year, the Washington, D.C.-based National Retail Federation predicts that improvements in key economic indicators — retail sales, jobs and housing data — will give way to increased holiday spending. And according to new research in a custom report compiled by London-based Euromonitor International for Produce Marketing Association (PMA), current estimates suggest overall U.S. foriculture sales could reach $38.5 billion by 2016. Gradually increasing disposable incomes and improved economic prospects support this optimistic trajectory. Te potential has never been higher for industry players that can fnd and expand their place in foriculture. While opportunities for growth appear in the foral forecast, Euromonitor’s fndings nonetheless suggest that thriving may be a challenge. Consumer demand, combined with a handful of other critical factors examined in the study, will continue to shape the foral industry over the next few years. By gaining a better understanding of these critical factors, retailers and the entire foral industry can identify market norms and emerging conditions that could afect the supply chain, and thereby develop efective strategies to grow their foral businesses.

Recession’s Lingering Side Effects Between 2008 and 2013, the U.S. annual disposable income per household was heavily infuenced by the economic recession. Often considered nonessential purchases, fowers experienced a signifcant decline under strained consumer budgets. Floral sales were especially hit hard between 2008 and 2010. Te recession not only infuenced topline sales, it also afected the overall foral industry landscape. A number of smaller players struggled to compete

when the industry constricted, and were forced to close their businesses in the face of mounting debt and limited capital. At the same time, many mid- to largesize players started to consolidate. At the end of this period, the total number of producers, wholesalers and retailers was signifcantly smaller than in the fve years prior. Despite sluggish sales through 2011, higher growth has been seen in the past few years. Te cut-foral market reached roughly $8 billion in 2013, and is set to grow by $700 million through 2016. Yet even in the midst of an improving economy and a rise in consumer spending, many price-conscious behaviors persist among middle-class households. During the recession and ensuing years, many people adapted their spending to constrained budgets and made price consciousness a permanent consideration. Tis, combined with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s recent projection that U.S. food price infation will increase 2 percent to 3 percent in 2015, could continue to afect foral purchases as consumers pick food over fowers to meet grocery budgets. Tis rapidly changing consumerspending environment will force the global foral industry to adapt its business practices, focusing on quality and efciency.

e-Commerce and Evolving Distribution Channels Where historically, forists represented the majority of cut-fower sales, an estimated 57 percent of these sales are now occurring in other channels. Supermarkets make up the bulk of these non-forist sales, with roughly 34 percent share of total cut-fower

sales, a share expected to rise over the next few years. Tis shift is being driven in part by stronger direct relationships with producers that give leading supermarkets and mass merchandisers the ability to ofer high-quality fowers at a lower cost and, in many cases, ofer a wider variety. At the same time, these stores beneft from convenience-oriented positioning that’s increasingly important to a widening customer base that prefers to shop at one place for a range of diferent products. Another critical change afecting demand is the rising importance of e-commerce, including the rapid growth of foral websites. Tere are a number of positive implications of this trend, among them increasing foral visibility among online consumers and making foral purchases convenient for potential shoppers in any location. While these dynamics can beneft the industry as whole, the growing importance of online foral sales is driving industry players to invest in e-commerce capabilities. Tose companies able to invest in and leverage online sales to drive business will likely beneft from the substantial opportunities generated by an increasingly technology-dependent society.

Driving Consumer Demand While the foriculture forecast appears promising, the industry’s future is subject to changing dynamics of the marketplace. It’s in the interest of all industry players to spur consumer demand, which requires individual businesses to understand the drivers behind consumer trends and adapt their marketing strategies accordingly. Te success of the industry can only be achieved by driving consumer demand through stronger collaboration among players and by reinforcing the need to adapt in a changing market landscape.

he movie “Field of Dreams” coined the phrase “Build it, and they will come.” Today’s supermarkets are using mobile merchandisers to put their own marketing spin on this phrase: Move it, and sales will come. As Frank Callis, director of sales and marketing at Royston LLC, in Jasper, Ga., points out: “Today, retailers are ofering an ever-broadening range of products, and using mobile merchandisers allows stores to experiment with new products near impulse-purchase hot spots. Additionally, we’ve found that savvy retailers are demanding well-designed mobile merchandisers that easily adapt to current store design, sight lines and trafc patterns. Lastly, while it’s clear that many retailers utilize mobile merchandisers as part of their front end fow, we’ve found that they work equally well in other areas of the store, and that retailers are interested in exploiting that opportunity.” Callis says that Royston’s innovative Get & Go smaller merchandisers work well for retailers’ seasonal displays, cross-sells or closeouts. Tey can be linked for an efective end cap feature, or placed back to back for a walkaround display. Tey’re available in many color and fnish options to ft any store décor. “Our most popular mobile merchandiser is our Hen House heated island case,” he notes. “It can be moved around the store, which makes it perfect for daypart merchandising. You can set it up in

the deli with boxes of wings for lunch, or set it up near the front end to help customers looking for last-minute meal replacement.” According to Callis, Royston’s latest mobile solution is the Heated Island Merchandiser, which is on casters, comes with a multiple-zone heat control, and features a programmable control so that it can turn itself on and of. “We anticipate further aesthetic changes in mobile merchandisers as store design continues to modernize and become more consumer-friendly rather than stock-friendly,” Callis observes. “We also see them increasing in popularity as stores further experiment with new product lines. For instance, gluten-free products began on mobile merchandisers initially and are now standard stock. As consumers become more savvy, stores will need the fexibility of mobile merchandisers.”

Hold Everything Mobile merchandisers are being more widely used in the deli, produce and fresh food areas due to the increased popularity of prepared foods and organic, locally grown and gluten-free products, says Terri Ess, marketing communications specialist at FFR Merchandising Inc., in Twinsburg, Ohio. “Tey also provide an ideal solution for showcasing seasonal and holiday oferings that tend to change frequently,” Ess points out. FFR ofers a variety of wood and metal mobile merchandisers, including rolling bakery merchandisers,

Euro tables, wooden carts and polymer shelving, as well as food-sampling units. Te sampling units are extremely popular for showcasing new and seasonal food items, Ess notes; they come in four countertop and three free-standing styles for fexibility throughout the store. Te company’s new Side Kick Cross Merchandiser is a free-standing shelving unit that creates a versatile cross-merchandising fxture at the end of aisles, accommodating many styles of product packaging, according to Ess, who adds that its shelves can hold a variety of packaging styles and heights, while the pegboard back allows the display of pegged products. Te Side Kick also includes an adapter to secure the shelving system to aisle gondolas. What’s more, the merchandiser’s durable black steel with black pegboard construction complements most store décor. “Te future of mobile merchandisers is likely to include the use of sustainable materials,” Ess asserts, “and, possibly, the integration of technological features and functions.”

Reinventing Center Store Bridgeton, Mo.-based Hussmann Corp. ofers several refrigerated mobile merchandisers that can be used to feature specially priced promotions, to cross-merchandise products within a department, or to display popular food items in convenient locations throughout the store. “Our SM/SN spot merchandisers are the most popular mobile displays in our portfolio,” says Cheryl Beach, Hussmann’s marketing communication manager. “Tey can be used for low-temperature products, and are available with either an open top or a sliding glass lid. Tey have a large display capacity and can be easily moved anywhere in the store. Te SM/SN are great for specially priced promotional products and ft well at the end of an island or shelving run.” Hussmann has recently introduced the new Q2-SS refrigerated merchandiser, which features multiple display levels with shelves, steps and racks. “Te Q2-SS is great for impulse sales in the deli, meat, produce, beverage, grab-and-go and bakery departments,” Beach says. Another new Hussmann ofering is the MPC

orchard bin-style two-level display merchandiser with a wood-clad front. It’s designed to integrate with the farmers’ market trend and attract shoppers to fresh-picked produce on display. “We see growth in the use of mobile merchandisers as food retailers reinvent the center store and want to create destination departments through cross-merchandising,” Beach says. “Tese smaller mobile merchandisers also enable retailers to appeal to their convenience shoppers by having their ‘musthaves’ within easy access at the front of the store and the checkout area.”

Basket Cases “Our name is Mobile Merchandisers,” says VP of Sales and Marketing Jerry Price at the company’s Mount Vernon, Wash., headquarters, “and 90 percent of our displays can be purchased with wheels.” According to Price, Mobile Merchandisers’ line of willow baskets is very popular in the grocery industry, with specialty racks available for produce, bakery and “virtually every department within the store.” Te company’s latest mobile merchandiser, he notes, is a four-basket merchandiser, which boasts a diferent look in merchandising and basket color. “With the growing competition of products trying to fnd space, and the continued growth of private label, we are positioning ourselves to not only provide merchandisers, but also provide insight on how we can increase customers’ sales in previously unused selling space,” Price says. “Te Rack Doctors from Mobile Merchandisers are available to help healthy stores get healthier, and we welcome the opportunity to make ‘house calls’ — store visits — with our customers.” Convenience, Portability and Eco-friendliness Michael Lehtinen, case product manager at Heatcraft Kysor/Warren, in Columbus, Ga., has also observed an increase in retailers deploying mobile units. Kysor/Warren produces single-deck and multideck mobile merchandisers in 4-, 6-, 8- and 10-foot lengths, which Lehtinen says are ideal for bakery, meat, seafood, produce and deli use. According to Lehtinen, the most popular of these is the 4-foot single-deck model, which provides the most convenient and portable format in the company’s line. “Our latest mobile platform is our 8-foot MX1,” he adds.”It was developed for retailers looking to deploy refrigerated end caps when required.” In the future, according to Lehtinen, mobile merchandisers using alternative refrigerants will limit the use of hydrofuorocarbons (HFCs), known to be harmful to the environment. Tus, it would seem that mobile merchandisers can help the Earth as well as supermarket sales — a good move all the way around. PG

The power of

POTATO BRANDING With more fresh produce than ever competing for retail space, you can’t afford to let slow-moving fruits and vegetables take up valuable produce department real estate. Stocking products supported by the power of a strong brand is one of the best ways to make sure every square inch of the produce aisle is working hard to drive higher sales. That’s why leveraging consumers’ proven preferences for potatoes with this kind of high-level brand appeal can be a savvy strategy for getting more spuds—and produce of all kinds—into your shoppers’ carts.

Among potatoes of all varieties, the Idaho name is by far the most-named top of mind “brand” of potato, according to exclusive new research from Carbonview Research. In fact, the association between “Idaho” and potatoes is the strongest of any of the most common food and state associations, such as Florida and oranges or California and grapes. Regular television advertising campaigns for Idaho® potatoes also tend to impact consumers’ grocery lists, with those who recall seeing the commercials demonstrating a stronger intent to seek out Idaho-grown spuds.

Squeeze Food retailers turn to workforce management technology to protect profits. By Christina Veiders

L

abor costs — a grocer’s second-biggest operational expense after cost of goods — are under pressure. Grocers can anticipate continued wage and beneft cost increases, with recent cries to boost the minimum hourly wage, fulfllment of Afordable Care Act requirements, and changing union and government work rules. In a competitive and complex business environment, food retailers are abandoning their old Excel spreadsheets and investing in sophisticated, next-generation workforce management (WFM) systems to control rising labor costs. Tey view their investment as a survival tactic. WFM investments, however, can yield big returns in labor cost savings. Shaving a point or point and a half of labor expenses can mean thousands — even millions — to a retailer’s bottom line. Getting there isn’t an easy process, however.

Upgrading the System Calgary Co-op is one of the largest retailer cooperatives in North America, and the largest food retailer in the Canadian province of Alberta, with 24 stores, 3,500 employees and 440,000 members. It ofers a full range of retail services, including food retail stores, pharmacies, fueling stations, wine and spirits stores, home health care centers, and travel ofces. Annual revenue last year was CDN $1.1 billion. Te co-op found itself squeezed by rising labor

costs in a market where the oil boom triggered wage competition. Hourly employees, of which 85 percent are unionized, get paid close to CDN $15 an hour. After collective bargaining last year, workers received a 1.5 percent increase in wages. Tey’ll get another 2 percent this year and next, according to Shawn Jacks, the co-op’s retail scheduling and center operation director. Despite these wage increases, the co-op was able to decrease its salary by a half a percentage point, which it attributes to an integrated WFM solution from Kronos, in Chemsford, Mass. Since 2010, the co-op has worked with Kronos to upgrade its antiquated scheduling system. In 2010, co-op executives visited Scarborough, Maine-based Hannaford Supermarkets, a Kronos customer and a chain with a similar food operation, to witness frsthand the impact of an integrated solution on Hannaford’s labor costs, says Jacks. By March 2012, Kronos software modules (time and attendance, forecasting, and scheduling) were up and running at the co-op. Year-over-year results produced a 1 percent decrease in payroll of front end employees, which is about 40 percent of its labor force. Efciencies were achieved, in part, by holding part-timers to their template hours and reducing the amount of “casual employee” hours. “We wanted a labor model that ensured we were providing customer service, but we were also being efective in how we scheduled to ultimately have a better percent of sales as a labor cost,” notes Jacks.

We want to be a great employer, and we still have to manage our business for customers. We have to have that balance.” —Shawn Jacks, Calgary Co-op

Te association hired 800 employees last year for more labor fexibility, allocating hours to two or three employees instead of just one. Co-op sales are up, as are scores on customer service levels from third-party analysis, says Jacks, who adds, “Tis program solidifed where we needed to go to make sure we are being proftable as an organization.” Although WFM tools have become part of the co-op’s culture, he notes, employees still have to manage their schedules. “We want to be a great employer, and we still have to manage our business for customers. We have to have that balance” between employee work-life issues and customer service. Calgary Co-op plans to expand its use of Kronos solutions across all divisions, including grocery, bakery, pharmacy, deli, produce, petroleum and liquor, to further enhance its quality of member service. It’s working with Toronto-based Axsium Group on developing engineered standards for those departments.

Our goal was to find a solution that could give us reports in real time of how much money we were spending on payroll in the week we were currently in.” —Noah Katz, PSK Supermarkets

Starting from Scratch “A hodgepodge of systems performing diferent functions” is how Paul Simas, director of operations and payroll, describes the labor management system Roche Bros. had in place before July 2013. Te 20-store, privately held chain, based in Wellesley, Mass., employs 4,500 associates and generates between $500 million and $600 million a year in revenue, according to various sources. Te goal was to consolidate all disparate systems. So Roche Bros. started from scratch and chose Orlando, Fla.-based Empower Software Solutions as its partner. Many retailers resist getting rid of their legacy systems and letting go of old processes, forcing suppliers to confgure their software to the retailer’s specifcations. Simas believes it was more efcient and less disruptive in the long term to build a new system with Empower’s software out of the box. Roche Bros. choose EmpowerWFM for its ease of confguration, report generation, dashboards, and implementation and support services. Te retailer uses Empower’s scheduler, time and attendance, forecaster, and employee self-serve soft-

One Seamless System Some suppliers may say they have one integrated WFM solution that can do it all. But Noah Katz, co-president of PSK Supermarkets, in Mount Vernon, N.Y., tested several that couldn’t deliver. Katz then tried Dayforce HCM from Minneapolisbased Ceridian, and is now an enthusiastic endorser of the single management solution for payroll, human resources, workforce, benefts, tax and payments services. PSK, a 58-year-old independent with 11 stores in the metro New York area operating under the Foodtown and Freshtown banners, has a workforce of 850 associates. Katz began searching for a solution that could replace PSK’s manual labor system with a SaaS system that delivers weekly labor budgets based on real-time labor spend. Te system was deployed enterprisewide without any cumbersome interfaces to complicate the process. “Our goal was to fnd a solution that could give us reports in real time of how much money we were spending on payroll in the week we were currently in,” Katz explains. It’s the diference between looking back on payroll spend to guesstimate for the coming week, and looking forward using real-time labor spend to budget for the coming week. Managers now fnalize their labor schedules for the week by pressing a button, and Dayforce calculates the department labor spend for the coming week. Tey log into the system during the week to make sure their departments are on track for meeting weekly budgets by comparing budget versus actual labor hours and costs, monitoring overtime expenses, and quickly identifying variances to their plan. According to Nucleus Research, a Boston-based technology analyst, PSK’s WFM system has delivered an annual ROI of 1,688 percent and saved the company $1.1 million in average annual benefts. For every $1 PSK has invested in Dayforce, it’s getting back $6 in labor savings over a three-year period. Katz says the cost savings comes out to 50 basis points, or a half a percentage point of sales: “It’s a big number.” Ceridian charges a fee per employee per month. Te fee covers access to the Dayforce applications and includes future maintenance and support. Tere are additional fees for implementation and education.

onsumers are taking a layered approach to their skin care regimens, a trend that translates into multiple purchases and strong category sales in the mass facial skin care category. “It’s become more common for consumers to use an oil or serum, followed by a moisturizer and then a BB cream,” says Donna Barson, beauty analyst at New York-based Kline Group. “Consumers are becoming more accustomed to layering products.” Sales of facial moisturizers were up 4 percent for the 52 weeks ending Oct. 5, 2014, according to U.S. multioutlet data from Chicago-based IRI. Facial cleanser sales were ahead nearly 4 percent for the same period, IRI found. “Wipes are a growth area” in the category, Barson notes. “Tey are a fast way to remove makeup before doing a deeper clean with facialcleaning devices, which are becoming more popular with consumers.” Te most dynamic performance in the category comes from BB and CC creams, which ofer consumers multiple benefts in one product. Euromonitor data indicates that the creams (classifed by the

| Progressive Grocer | Ahead of What’s Next | December 2014

London-based market research frm as “other facial makeup”) saw 107 percent growth to $355 million in U.S. sales last year. BB (short for beauty balms and blemish balms) and CC (for color correction or color control) products combine benefts from the skin care, sun care and color cosmetics categories to provide consumers with an all-in-one skin care solution. Te multibeneft products, on the U.S. market since 2012, have been popular in Japan and South Korea for several years. Clichy, France-based L’Oréal was the frst to introduce a mass-market BB cream in the United States, Garnier BB Cream Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector. Chicago-based Mintel reports that acceptance of the multifunctional cream is on the rise. Nearly 29 percent of women reported using the product in 2013, compared with 24 percent in 2012, and Mintel Beauty and Personal Care Analyst Shannon Romanowski predicts that the “market is sure to continue its upward trajectory.” A recent study by Te NPD Group, in Port Washington, N.Y., found that while only 2 percent of U.S. beauty shoppers have purchased a BB cream, nearly four in fve of those who’ve tried one

Physicians Formula has had this year. L’Oreal and Garnier have included educational components in their free-standing inserts, and also put considerable advertising and digital media eforts behind their brands. “Supermarket shoppers don’t have a lot of time to browse the cosmetics aisles, so categories that require a lot of consideration can sufer in this channel,” Barson says. “Manufacturers are making their FSI ads much more information-focused, so that by the time consumers who are shopping these outlets for these products get to the store, they know what they want and are coupon-driven.”

Supermarkets have to decide where beauty fits in their stores. They have to decide if they are all about the basics and replenishment. The problem with that philosophy is that they miss all the opportunity that comes with new products.”

say they’ll buy it again. Bullish on the segment’s potential, some manufacturers have even added DD (daily defense) products, designed for deep moisturizing, to their lineups.

Anti-aging Sales Slipping Te success of do-it-all creams has had an impact on the other skin care categories. Euromonitor Beauty and Personal Care Analyst Nicole Tyrimou believes that “weaker growth in facial moisturizers and sun care, coupled with static growth in anti-agers, may well be the result of the plethora of such multifunctional products in the marketplace.” IRI data show that sales in the anti-aging category slipped 2.5 percent for the 52 weeks ending Oct. 5, 2014. Ingrid Jackel, president of City of Industry, Calif.based Physicians Formula/Markwins International, expects the trend toward multifunctional products to continue. Te brand’s Super BB line surged 88 percent in 2014 over last year and continues to see double-digit growth, and its Super CC franchise has become the No. 1 new “masstige” franchise, according to Jackel. “Further diferentiating BBs and CCs will be key to success,” Jackel says. “Generalist products will have longer lists of benefts, and others will have specifc benefts associated with specifc problems such as dark spots and acne.” Te proliferation of higher-priced masstige cosmetics can be a challenge for supermarket retailers with limited space to display the products and often no sales help on the foor to educate consumers about the benefts of these products, which can retail for as much as $25. Manufacturers are communicating the benefts of the products through advertising, social and digital media, public relations, and point-of-sale education through merchandising and secondary packaging. Jackel attributes a signifcant boost in marketing communication campaigns to the success

Supermarket Strategies Supermarket chains know that price is their edge in this category. At a ShopRite location in Plainview, N.Y., shelf stickers ofered $3 of the $20-plus retail on Olay Total Efects CC eye creams and $5 of L’Oreal’s BB cream. Nearly every brand on the shelves was more than $1 of its retail price. Rochester, N.Y.-based Wegmans Food Markets makes a price statement as well, with signage that advertises “Consistent Low Prices” and shelf talkers highlighting sales. Chains that devote space to the category and create an environment for the products – which can even include stafng departments with salespeople that can help educate consumers – have had good results with higher-end skin care products. At Phoenix-based Sprouts Farmers Market, all new and remodeled stores include a body care “destination” department. “Tis clean, in-line format invites our consumers in and allows them to be hands-on with the products. Tey can test our products in the store, and they also have access to knowledgeable staf that provide insight to help them make their purchase,” says Brandi Tanner, Sprouts’ HBA category manager. More than 170 H-E-B locations have beauty advisers on staf who can explain product benefts to customers, help them select the appropriate products and instruct them on the proper way to use them. Te San Antonio-based chain also uses its website to highlight new products; its “Winter Beauty Trends” link has a skin care component that highlights several key products. With more advanced skin care products touting multiple benefts entering the market, increasingly sophisticated consumers will have more choices than ever. How supermarkets approach the category will require more thought. “Supermarkets have to decide where beauty fts in their stores,” says Wendy Leibmann, CEO of New York-based WSL Strategic Retail. “Tey have to decide if they are all about the basics and replenishment. Te problem with that philosophy is that they miss all the opportunity that comes with new products, so they can’t really grow that business. Tey have to decide if they really care.” PG

Household Cleaning Products

Household cleaning products aim for market interest in convenience, natural ingredients and sensory appeal. By Lynn Petrak

T

he answer to how to deal with life’s messes is clean and simple — and never more so than in today’s marketplace. Above all, household cleaning products have to be efective to stay on the retail shelf and in consumers’ shopping carts and homes. Increasingly, there’s also the desire for simplicity when it comes to such items, both in ease of use and in the way those products are made and merchandised. Te fact that things have become so complicated in many consumers’ lives is the impetus behind the demand for something easier when it comes to the chore of cleaning. Because of consumers’ time constraints and desire to get cleaning over with as quickly and successfully as possible, manufacturers have focused on convenience, multifunctionality and simple usage, with a variety of new and improved cleaning products. “Consumers today are looking for more from manufacturers when it comes to cleaning. Between jobs, kids, activities and the speed of life, cleaning gets squeezed out of their BOWLED OVER day,” observes Priscilla Tuan, direcMany toilet cleaner brands, tor of marketing at the Clorox Co., including in Oakland. Calif. Ty-D-Bol, now Shelley Cade, VP of marketing offer natural for Willert Home Products, in St. alternatives. Louis, agrees that consumers are seeking solutions in household cleaners that help them do more or as much with less. “People are basically looking for products that are efective, long-lasting and with superior performance. And,

80

with the need for saving time, there are products that do more than one task,” she says. Also changing are the people doing the cleaning, notes Tuan. “We are seeing demographic shifts in the makeup of households that are changing the way people clean. We used to talk about ‘she,’ and now it’s ‘he or she.’ Studies suggest men are cleaning more than they have 10 or 20 years ago. We need to design products for, and communicate to, both men and women,” she points out. Another demographic shift concerns the infux of multigenerational families. “We used to defne a household as the nuclear family. Now we fnd more families living intergenerationally than in the past — millennials returning to the nest, or grandparents in the home. More people in the same space means a higher need for cleaning, as well as sharing of labor among more adults,” Tuan says. “And the makeup of consumer households is increasingly diverse. Now the conversation has shifted to ‘total market,’ because America is now multicultural.” Although lifestyle changes and demands have evolved and impacted retail oferings, they haven’t afected the overall use of cleaning products. According to a report released last year by Chicagobased market research frm Mintel, the household surface cleaner category is a “resilient” $5 billion market spanning all-purpose cleaners/disinfectants, toilet/tub/tile cleaners, specialized surface cleaners, household cleaner cloths, foor cleaners and furniture polish.


For its part, Chicago-based market research frm IRI reports that sales of household cleaners topped $3 billion for the 52-week period ending Nov. 2, 2014. Within that general category, sales of allpurpose cleaners led the way, with a little more than $1 billion in sales, followed by toilet bowl cleaners/deodorizers, at $493 million, and nonabrasive tub/tile cleaners, at more than $407 million. IRI research also shows that sales of household cleaning cloths are approximately $625 million a year, up 5 percent from the year-ago period.

Many Uses Within the category of household cleaning products, many new items refect consumers’ interests in efectiveness and simplicity. From a convenience standpoint, multifunctionality is a major feature of new products, beyond general all-purpose cleaners. One example is Clorox Toilet Wand, a disposable cleaning tool. “With Clorox Toilet Wand, they can get right to toilet cleaning with no prep, without compromising their standard of clean, and then they get to throw the ‘ick’ away,” explains Tuan. Also making the daunting and not-so-fun

chore of toilet cleaning easier is the new Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush Starter Kit and Caddy, from Racine, Wis.-based SC Johnson. Te system includes an easy-load tray for touchless dispensing and disposal, and fushable cleaning pads. And for those who truly want a hands-of approach to cleaning the can, there’s Te Works automatic toilet bowl cleaner, from Concord, Ontario-based KIK Custom Products. Beyond the bathroom, multifunctionality and easy-disposal features are evident across all cleaning functions. Te Brillo Sweep & Mop, from Walled Lake, Mich.-based Armaly Brands, for example, is a three-in-one mopping system for hard fooring surfaces, with disposable dry pads for dusting, wet pads for quick washing, and deep-cleaning pads. Clorox’s Liquid-Plumr line now includes a Double Impact Snake and Gel System, which features a 23-inch snake to unclog pipes, along with a gel to fush away the residual “gunk.”

GROWING GREEN Based on rising consumer interest, Clorox has expanded its Green Works line of natural cleaning products.

A lot of consumers are interested in going more natural for their families and for the environment, but are worried they will be trading down on the clean they are getting.”

—Priscilla Tuan, The Clorox Co.

Household Cleaning Products

Natural Progression Simplicity has another meaning in the household cleaning product category right now, namely in the ingredients used to make the items. San Franciscobased Method Products, for example, continues to expand its line of natural cleaning products, including newly introduced air fresheners featuring pressured-air technology instead of traditional aerosol delivery. Last summer, Method revealed that 75 percent of its naturally derived biodegradable product lines had been certifed Gold by the Cradle to Cradle certifcation program. Willert, meanwhile, has introduced into the natural arena a new toilet bowl cleaner with an accompanying “cleaner” label. “Te product is a plantbased cleaning product with nontoxic, noncorrosive ingredients that kills 99.9 percent of germs on a toilet,” says Cade, adding that the product will be ofcially unveiled in early 2015. “Plant-based cleaners have been around for a few years, and we saw what was going on with green product lines and felt there is certainly a segment for that.” According to Cade, Willert is developing additional natural options. “We are working on other items associated with odor control that fall into the

natural product category. We want to be a company that gives you something to clean and help with odor control, with natural ingredients,” she remarks. Having likewise found growing interest among consumers for natural ingredients, Clorox has expanded its Green Works line of 15 natural cleaning products. “A lot of consumers are interested in going more natural for their families and for the environment, but are worried they will be trading down on the clean they are getting,” says Tuan, noting that the Green Works line allows for impressive cleaning results as well as a natural profle. Cleaning accessories are also going au naturel, so to speak. Te Scotch-Brite line, from St. Paul, Minn.based 3M, has added new “Greener Clean” nonscratch scrub sponges, heavy-duty scour pads and dish wands. Te trends toward multifunctionality and natural have fused in some cases. SC Johnson’s venerable Pledge brand, for example, ofers a multisurface cleaner that’s 99 percent natural, while the Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day line of natural cleaning products includes items like automatic dish packs in such varieties as Lemon Verbena and Lavender, and multisurface cleaners spanning ingredients from Radish to Orange Clove.

what s next Food, Beverage & Nonfood Products

Get on the Sticks

Gorton’s Seafood has reinvented its signature product with Smart & Crunchy Breaded Fish Sticks, made with 100 percent wild-caught Alaska pollock and featuring a crispy panko coating. The never-fried item boasts 50 percent less fat than Gorton’s regular Fish Sticks and contains 180 calories per serving. Expected to be available nationally early next year, along with Smart & Crunchy Breaded Fish Fillets, the fish sticks have an SRP range of $4.99-$6.99 for a 15.7-ounce, five-count resealable bag. www.gortons.com

Winners’ Cup

Barnie’s CoffeeKitchen’s entry into the Keurig-compatible single-serve arena, CupUp, brews a café-quality quaff with 30 percent more java than other leading brands. According to the company, the capsule’s patent-pending channel design boosts water circulation, producing a finer extraction of aroma and flavor. Available in a 10-count package retailing for a suggested $10.99, the item comes in Barnie’s Blend, Café Au Chocolat, Crème Brûlée and Santa’s White Christmas varieties. BarniesCoffeeKitchen.com

‘Frozen’ to the Core

Among Disney Consumer Products’ (DCP) lineup of recently released licensed produce offerings are “Frozen” branded bagged apples by Sage. “Beyond the toy aisle, ‘Frozen’ is also keeping the produce section fresh and cool,” notes John T. King, DCP’s VP of licensing. “The global appeal of our stories and characters gives Disney Consumer Products an opportunity to continue to expand our produce portfolio and empower parents with more nutritious food options for their kids.” Through collaborations with DCP, licensees and retailers can see their produce business thrive, and the effect of healthier eating on families increase. www.DisneyConsumerProducts.com

Faster Pasta

New World Pasta brands San Giorgio and Creamette have introduced products to help lovers of baked pasta dishes create meals in less time. With San Giorgio Oven Ready Penne and Creamette Oven Ready Elbows, time-starved home cooks can make baked penne or elbow casserole without having to boil the pasta first, saving on prep and cleanup time. The 12-ounce boxes, retailing for a suggested $1.38-$1.48 (San Giorgio) or $1.39-$1.56 (Creamette) each, feature an easy-to-make recipe, with additional recipes available at the brands’ websites. www.sangiorgio.com; www.creamette.com December 2014 | progressivegrocer.com |

Calcium-rich Blue Isle Mediterranean Yogurt Spreads, distributed by Karoun Dairies Inc., are made from fresh, rBSTfree milk with live active and probiotic cultures. Available in Original, Honey, Blueberry, French Onion and Spicy Vegetable varieties, the low-in-sodium and -sugar product line has just 60 calories and 6 grams of fat per serving. The SRP is $3.29 per 8-ounce refrigerated tub. BlueIslespread.com; Karouncheese.com

We’re seeing a lot of flavor experimentation in this edition of Shelf Score. Brands are trying out bold, unique profiles such as porcini mushroom, jalapeño or red velvet — and consumers are responding with varying degrees of interest. In terms of standout categories, snack and cereal bars occupy the top two spots, suggesting that flavorful, on-the-go foods are still serving a market need.

Pouchfuls of Flavor

As it marks its 100th anniversary this year, Chicken of the Sea is making the most of its salmon leadership with the introduction of Flavored Salmon Pouches — a first for the industry. Due to roll out nationally in the spring, the product line offers Lemon Pepper, Barbecue, and Sweet & Spicy flavors, with additional SKUs being considered for the future. To support the item, the company has developed a host of new recipes and serving suggestions, in addition to launching an exhaustive PR and sampling program. The SRP range for a 2.5-ounce pouch is $1.15-$1.49. www.chickenofthesea.com

Shredded Treat

Who says dogs can’t be foodies, too? Freshpet Select Fresh from the Kitchen Home Cooked Chicken Recipe allows Fido to dine in style on high-quality shredded poultry featuring no preservatives or fillers. In fact, more than 80 percent of the small-batch recipe consists of fresh, locally sourced chicken. The product also provides essential vitamins in the form of carrots, spinach and superfruit cranberries. A 1.75-pound bag of the refrigerated dog food retails for a suggested $7.99. www.freshpet.com

seasonal spotlight Festive Indulgences

Exclusive to Whole Foods Market, Ciao Bella’s limited-time-only Pumpkin Sea Salt Caramel and Mistletoe Mint gourmet gelato flavors capture the essence of the holidays. The former features a creamy pumpkin purée base, swirls of sweet-and-salty caramel, and a touch of cinnamon, while the latter, brand-new this year, consists of crème de menthe gelato paired with the company’s own Fair Trade organic South American dark chocolate. A 14-ounce container retails for a suggested $4.99. www.ciaobellagelato.com

Branching Out

M

aking a living is one thing; making a difference is quite another. And that’s precisely what our 2014 Top Women in Grocery (TWIG) award winners do every day: make a living for themselves and their families while making a big diference in their companies, and in the lives of those around them. It’s something we frmly believe is well worth celebrating, as did a star-studded, sold-out crowd of nearly 500, who joined with us last month at the Loews Chicago O’Hare hotel for our eighth annual Top Women in Grocery gala, which by all accounts delivered on our unending goal of continuous advancement of the industry’s premier women’s recognition program. In addition to providing an opportunity to mingle with, and shine an individual spotlight on, a full two-thirds — or roughly 200 — of our total 311 winners, this year’s TWIG event branched out in new directions — during both the afternoon educational and networking program and the evening bash — to culminate in what one senior retail executive described as “an overall amazing event.” Added another industry leader: “Te collaboration and integration of all sectors of the retailer and supplier communities were exceptional. It was so well planned, and it really made the women feel appreciated and recognized while providing ample opportunities to network, reconnect with old friends and also make new ones.” I’m particularly partial to the viewpoint of yet another attendee, who noted, “Te overall ‘feel’ of the total event was excellent; it was simply a great celebration of the accomplishments of inspirational women in our industry.” Ode to Joy No doubt, the contagious vibe of joy, gratitude and esprit de corps was unmistakable — not only among our honorees, but also for our illustrious special guests: FMI President/CEO Leslie Sarasin, who presided masterfully for the second year as TWIG awards emcee; Janel Haugarth, Supervalu’s EVP and president of independent business and supply chain services, who received the distinguished Trailblazer Award; and keynoter Deanie Elsner, EVP and CMO of Kraft Foods, who was positively sensational in delivering “fve life lessons” for our distinguished guests.

Elsner’s riveting wisdom dovetailed splendidly with the valuable life lessons shared by this year’s TWIG event attendees, who were asked to tell us who has had the biggest infuence on their lives or careers, and what they learned from them. And though space doesn’t permit me to expound on the many inspiring stories revealed by our 2014 event attendees (30 of whom were selected as the lucky winners of a sleek Microsoft Surface Pro 3), a universal theme of trust, respect and abiding appreciation — be it for parents, grandparents, siblings, sisters, frst bosses, former store directors, current district managers, corporate SVPs, mentors past and present, corporate presidents, or CEOs — permeated each heartfelt narrative. Considering the past hurdles faced by many of our Top Women in the forms of gender discrimination, family tragedies and personal setbacks, alongside responsibilities related to their roles as mothers, daughters, wives, sisters, friends, community leaders and grass-roots volunteers, the excursion to the TWIG winners’ circle is hardly a cakewalk. But as always, understanding their paths provides an optimal platform for the industry to appreciate the present and plan for the future. We encourage you to learn more about the inspiring journeys that brought our 2014 Top Women winners to Chicago last month on our website: www.progressivegrocer/TWIG2014. While we’re acutely aware of the great strides women industry leaders have made as TWIG enters its ninth year of existence, there’s clearly more to be done, and there remain many gifted and deserving women throughout the industry who deeply deserve to be recognized — not only by their companies, but more importantly, by their fellow industry peers as well. With this in mind, it’s my hope to see at least one member of each progressive grocery organization represented in our 2015 awards program, nominations for which will open on our website on beginning on Jan. 1, 2015. All of us at Progressive Grocer wish you an invigorating and productive 2015, and extend our abiding thanks for your friendship, trust and support.
