officials were show-
casing Dietz &
brand of bulk service deli lunchmeats made
with proteins featuring “no antibiotics – ever”
along with several organic items, including
chicken breasts and hot dogs, as well as cheeses
that are rBST-free. “Our current customers
like and know they need these products, but
we are also hoping to get new customers in the
natural/organic grocery channel that we really
didn’t have access to before with our conven-
tional items,” said Lauren Eni, vice president
of brand strategy at Philadelphia-based Dietz
Irish Soda Bread is
not just for St.
Patrick’s Day any-
more, with many
retailers stocking it
year-round as a breakfast bread. Officials at
Gonnella Frozen Products have expanded
upon that with a Lemon Blueberry Soda Bread
that is offered for the summer and made with
whole blueberries and real lemon peel. For the
fourth quarter Pumpkin Raisin Soda Bread is
being introduced. “With the increase of the
popularity of pumpkin, we wanted to capture
some of that and offer it to our retailers as a
breakfast offering,” said Meg McDonnell, vice
president of sales for the Schaumburg, Ill.-
based company. The breads are shipped as fro-
zen raw dough that is baked off in the store.
Snacking and all-natural are the two
major trends Grecian
Delight is focusing
on this year. That can
be seen in the new Hummus Plus Snack Packs
that pair fresh chicken with hummus in a single-serve pack, containing a spork and napkin,
in three assorted flavors. “You see these all the
time with pretzels and crackers, but this is a
fresh chicken solution that is high protein,”
said David Gacom, vice president, retail sales
and marketing for the Elk Grove Village, Ill.-based company.
