Spirits Spotlight: The Makers of ”Not Your Father’s Root Beer®” Debut New Bourbon from Small Town Craft Spirits


Small Batch Bourbon with A Hint of Vanilla Now Available

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Small Town Craft Spirits announced today the launch of Not Your Father's Bourbon™, the first in a new line of spirits for the spirits company. The innovative company is putting an exciting spin on the centuries-old spirit for a new generation of whiskey drinkers and cocktail connoisseurs. Crafted for veteran and novice bourbon drinkers alike, Not Your Father's Bourbon is an 86 proof (43% ABV), small batch bourbon with a hint of vanilla for a subtly sweet taste. Small Town Craft Spirits is from the makers of Small Town Brewery, pioneer of the flavored craft category with fan-favorite, Not Your Father's Root Beer.

With more than 12% percent1 growth in the 85+ proof bourbon sector, Small Town Craft Spirits saw an opportunity to break ground in this category with a unique and accessible flavor profile that stands out from competitive brands. The distinctive blend of ingredients combined with the brand's smooth finish creates a spirit that is far from ordinary.  Small Town Craft Spirits is excited to offer a bourbon at an affordable price point with top-shelf taste that can be enjoyed during any occasion – from relaxing at home to celebrating a night out with friends.

The folks at Small Town Craft Spirits celebrate the rich history and heritage behind bourbon, but are excited to launch an option with a unique flavor twist and finish, different from what is expected. While most flavored whiskeys taste more like the flavor than the whiskey, Not Your Father's believes that the whiskey is the most important part.  A touch of Madagascar vanilla was added to enhance the flavor, not mask it.

Created to be approachable for all spirits drinkers, Not Your Father's Bourbon appeals to those who want to savor the traditional taste of bourbon, on the rocks, as well as to those who prefer enjoying their bourbon in a mixed drink. Try mixing it with Not Your Father's Root Beer for an indulgent cocktail that's hard to refuse.

Not Your Father's Bourbon comes in 750 ml bottles and is available in Illinois and Wisconsin with plans to launch nationwide by the first quarter of 2018.

"Birds Eye Veggie Made Pasta doesn't just contain vegetable ingredients, and isn't just plain vegetables cut into shapes of noodles. It looks and tastes just like regular pasta, and it's made completely out of actual vegetables," said Risa Cretella, Vice President Marketing for Birds Eye. "It's a guilt-free way to enjoy the comforts of pasta with a full serving of vegetables, without having to boil water or clean pots, making it an easy choice to include in holiday recipes or any meal."

Industry News: FoodMaven Reinvents Food Supply – Launches Internet Marketplace to “Capture and Sell” $200 Billion in Food Lost Each Year



Former Co-CEO of Whole Foods Market, Walter Robb, Invests and Joins Board

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Nov. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- About 40 percent of food produced by U.S. agriculture gets lost in a complex distribution system and is never used, contributing to the 133 billion pounds of food that's hauled to U.S. landfills each year. This is not only a social and environmental nightmare; it represents an estimated $200 billion per year in lost revenue.

Enter FoodMaven, an innovative online marketplace bringing agility and flexibility to the big food system, and providing significant savings on high-quality local and oversupplied food.   The company is announcing today that former Whole Foods Co-CEO Walter Robb has joined its board of directors.

"Walter is one of the most influential people in the U.S. food system, and we are thrilled to welcome him as a significant investor, trusted advisor, and member of our board of directors," said Patrick Bultema, Chairman, CEO and Co-founder of FoodMaven. "His decades of thought leadership in the food industry, experience at Whole Foods Market, and most recently his involvement in Amazon's acquisition of Whole Foods, will be instrumental as we continue to grow FoodMaven and transform how we think about the big food system."

"FoodMaven is going straight at the growing challenge of food waste and has created an imaginative and innovative market-based approach to using more of what we produce," said Robb. "I am excited to join with Patrick and team to help with this effort and grow the company."

FoodMaven's business model complements the big food system by capturing high-quality lost food from oversupply, imperfects and local products. The company has built an efficient Internet marketplace and rapid logistics system for capturing, re-selling and quickly delivering this lost food, drawing on big data optimization technology, and an agile logistics model for all food handling, safety and delivery.

"We believe that the food system needs a 'back-to-the-future' play—an agile hybrid of the best of local, and the best of the current big food system, seamlessly blended together," said Mr. Bultema.

For restaurants, institutional kitchens, and other buyers challenged by limited time, tight budgets, stringent requirements, and a continuous need to innovate, FoodMaven offers significantly discounted high-quality foods from trusted manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, and local producers to complement their existing suppliers. The FoodMaven Online Marketplace makes it easy for them to select products and payment options, and choose a delivery window that works for them.

"FoodMaven saves us money, aligns with our values as a business, and allows us to be creative in the kitchen with our products. A win, win, win," said Russ Ware, Co-Owner, The Wild Goose Meeting House.

For grocery distribution centers, food distributors, regional manufacturers, and local farmers and ranchers, FoodMaven provides an effortless way to make a profit on products that would otherwise be lost completely or be logistically and operationally challenging. These suppliers face obstacles such as limited solutions for imperfect and surplus inventory (distributors) and the lack of time to build new sales channels (local producers). FoodMaven helps them rescue revenue for their businesses by conveniently picking up, storing and selling their lost products.

Moreover, buyers and sellers using FoodMaven make a positive social and environmental impact. FoodMaven donates unsold food to hunger relief organizations and operates on a zero landfill policy.

"Our model is good for profits, people, and the planet," said Mr. Bultema.

Following a final build out in the Front Range metro areas of Colorado, FoodMaven will roll out its services nationally in 2018. For more information, please visit foodmaven.co.

About FoodMaven
FoodMaven is an innovative online marketplace and rapid logistics company bringing agility and flexibility to the U.S. food system. The company's goal is to capture and reclaim revenues from lost food, estimated at $200 billion per year.

Packaging Spotlight: Fifty50 Foods Unveils New Packaging for its Certified Low-Glycemic Products


Specialty food brand continues to serve consumers' growing appetite for Low-Glycemic Foods while funding Diabetes research

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Fifty50 Foods, the company that designed specialty foods for people living with diabetes, revealed new packaging prominently featuring its brand slogan "Eat Well, Feel Good" to underscore the company's commitment to helping consumers benefit from a Low-Glycemic diet. The company also announced that it will continue its 26-year legacy of donating half of its profits to diabetes research, which so far totals more than $14 million.

"Based on shopper and retailer insights, we felt it was the right time to showcase how our great-tasting products meet the personal wellbeing objectives not only for people with diabetes but also those who want to live a Low-Glycemic lifestyle," said Julie Frost, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Fifty50 Foods.

Fifty50 Foods has the industry's most extensive variety of certified Low-Glycemic foods ranging from peanut butters and fruit spreads to candies and cookies to breakfast items like syrup and oatmeal to baking items like pie crust and crystalline fructose. The brand's food items contain carbs that rank lower on the Glycemic Index (GI) so they are digested slower and won't cause dramatic blood sugar fluctuations, helping to keep energy levels steadier.

Low-Glycemic foods are not only for people with diabetes. Studies {1} have shown that a Low-GI diet offers health advantages like diminishing the risk for Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and age-related eye illnesses.

Tradition of giving continues
"In 1991, when we first committed to donating half of our profits to help prevent, treat and cure diabetes, it was not as common as it is today to find companies that make significant financial contributions to charities and social causes," said Frost. "We are proud of the fact that we were an early trailblazer in this area."

The company has given more than $8 million to date to (JDRF), the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.  "Fifty50 Foods is helping us realize our goal of living in a world without T1D," said Melissa Newman, Ph.D., Executive Director, Southwest Ohio Chapter, JDRF. "Every dollar we put towards research comes from donations and we are grateful for their support so we can continue to advance our mission and find a cure."

Fifty50 Foods' products are available for purchase at Fifty50Foods.com, on popular online shopping sites like Amazon, iHerb and MyBrands and at local grocers across the U.S.

Drink Spotlight: Nespresso Reveals Colorful, Candy-Inspired Limited Edition Collection For The Festive Season


Artists Craig & Karl add a pop of color to the latest Nespresso Limited Editions

NEW YORK, Nov. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Coffee lovers are set to be full of joy this holiday season as Nespresso reveals its Limited Edition Festive Collection, in collaboration with renowned artists Craig & Karl. To bring to life the color and fun of the season, this exclusive collection has been inspired by traditional candies that evoke nostalgic childhood memories.

To create the ultimate gift collection, Nespresso has teamed up with design duo Craig & Karl. Craig Redman and Karl Maier are transatlantic-based university friends turned creative collaborators who have a love for simple shapes paired with wildly colorful patterns and a wry sense of humor. The duo have injected their signature colors and patterns into both the Nespresso Limited Edition Variations coffees and espressos and into a selection of unique accessories that make the perfect gifts for design and coffee aficionados.

Craig and Karl explained: "We were inspired by the Nespresso Variations flavors and the notion they were all based around old-style confectionery. We were also mindful that the design had to feel modern and relevant to now, so in our initial development we honed in on candy cane style stripes, which were prevalent in the past. In it, we saw a classic motif that can evoke nostalgia for the customer, but one that equally feels current owing to its bold and graphic form. We also loved that the stripes once applied to dome-shaped capsules gave them the appearance of candy themselves."

The holidays are a time for unique experiences, and the range of Nespresso Limited Edition Variations Confetto coffees and espressos do not disappoint in that regard. Their candy-flavored aromas are combined with the highest quality Pure Arabica to invoke feelings of surprise and wonder. There are three OriginaLine and three Vertuo™ Variations to try, each with a Craig & Karl designed capsule.

The OriginalLine Variations consist of Pure Arabica from Southern and Central America, while the Vertuo™ Variations consist of a smooth Arabica from Ethiopia in addition to the Arabica blend from Southern and Central America.

OriginalLine Variations Confetto Snowball – a delicious espresso pairing sweet coconut notes with a touch of vanilla.
Intensity: 6

OriginalLine Variations Confetto Orangette – the bittersweet flavor of an orange peel and a hint of chocolate are vibrant in this flavored espresso.
Intensity: 6

OriginalLine Variations Confetto Licorice – a tasty combination of spices and licorice candy notes are prominent in this espresso.
Intensity: 6

VertuoVariations Confetto Banana – a sweet banana flavor, reminiscent of banana candy, is present in this coffee. With milk, the roasted coffee notes fade, further enhancing the sweet indulgence.
Intensity: 5

Vertuo Variations Confetto Peppermint Cane – the peppermint flavor comes to life with a distinctive candy-sweet note characteristic of a peppermint candy cane within this coffee. With a touch of milk, the lingering notes of peppermint soften to reveal a well-balanced finish.
Intensity: 5

Vertuo Variations Confetto Cherry – the cherry flavor opens up, harmonizing with almond notes for a cherry candy inspired treat within this coffee. With the addition of milk, the coffee flavor is reminiscent of a sweet dessert.
Intensity: 5

The latest Limited Edition Les Collections range from Nespresso is full of one-of-a-kind gifts that feature unique designs by Craig & Karl. The range offers something for all coffee-lovers, a taste for smooth and creamy milk based coffee recipes, or simply a passion for bold graphic design. The range includes:

  • Touch Espresso Cups designed by Craig & Karl
    Set of two espresso cups made from a mix of black porcelain and soft-touch silicone, featuring colorful Craig & Karl stripes inspired by licorice candies. $20.00
  • Touch Lungo Cups designed by Craig & Karl
