must approve each pie before they are
offered to retail.
Pinkowski purchased SatisPie from
General Mills in 2007 and quickly jetti-
soned all of the existing formulas. “They
just did not work,” he said. “Now we have
all clean ingredients and nothing is artifi-
cial. If one of our pies says strawberry on it,
you can be sure that is the No. 1 ingredient.”
Today, SatisPie offers about 70 SKUs,
recently introducing such new pies as
lemon blueberry and triple berry (straw-
berry, wild blueberry and blackberry).
“Our price points are a little higher than
other products out there but we have 70 to
75 percent fruit content instead of 50 to 55
percent,” Pinkowski said. “It makes a big
difference with your shopper.”
SCHLOTTERBECK & FOSS
Celebrating its 150th anniversary,
Schlotterbeck & Foss debuted its line of
wing sauces and served chicken wings
right on the show floor. The sauces are
made in small batches and come in several varieties including: Creamy Garlic
Parmesan, Mango Habanero, Wild
Buffalo and Blazing Buffalo—the company’s spiciest offering.
Last year the company moved from its
original downtown Portland, Maine location to a contemporary 40,000 square-foot facility in Westbrook.
This move made it possible for Schlotterbeck & Foss
to increase its manufacturing capacity and to attain a
Level 2 Certification of Safe Quality Food (SQF).
TASTE TRADITIONS OF OMAHA
Frozen soup could be the next big
thing in in the freezer aisle. Taste
Traditions of Omaha recently
launched six varieties of frozen
retail soups that deliver restau-rant-quality taste and can serve
a family of four to six people.
Officials with the Omaha, Neb.-based company said
the products offer a much better value to retailers than
comparable refrigerated offerings, and the convenience
and ease of preparation makes the soups attractive to
consumers. Retail soup varieties include: Cheddar
Baked Potato with Ham; Chicken Noodle; Cheesy
Chicken Tortilla; Cream of Broccoli with Cheese;
Wisconsin Cheddar; and Chicken Wild Rice.
WOEBER MUSTARD CO.
Products that are as close to their
natural state as possible have been a
hit with consumers in recent years.
Springfield, Ohio-based Woeber
Mustard Co. is meeting this demand
with the introduction of its Organic
Raw Apple Cider Vinegar.
The vinegar is made with organically grown apples, is unfiltered and
unpasteurized so it contains the naturally occurring
“mother of vinegar”—strands of proteins, enzymes
and gut-healthy bacteria.
Woeber’s also launched its Simply Supreme Craft Beer
Mustard, which is made with beer from Warped Wing
Brewery and blended it with a variety of spices.
