Food Spotlight: The Safe + Fair Food Company Introduces New Line of Top 8 Allergen-Free Baking Mixes




Company Continues to Expand Portfolio with Safe, Easy-to-Make Brownie, Blondie and Red Velvet Mixes

NEW YORK, March 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Safe + Fair Food Company announces its latest line extension to its allergy-friendly, great-tasting, clean label product offerings – baking mixes that are free from the top eight allergens, as well as gluten-free and vegan.

The new, easy-to-make mixes come in three delicious flavors: Double Chocolate Brownie, Red Velvet Brownie and Birthday Cake Blondie. The Top 8 Free Mixes are made with real, dairy-free and soy-free chocolate chips, natural color sprinkles, ancient grains and a specially-crafted blend of five gluten-free flours – to meet the consumer demand for a great-tasting, quality bar mix. Now food allergy families no longer have to forgo convenience by starting from scratch to get a delicious, safe baked treat.

"Finding a delicious baked good mix for a birthday party, bake sale or sweet tooth craving, that is safe for all, can seem impossible. Creating your own recipe requires a long list of ingredients and steps, and many of the current top 8 free mixes are grainy, dry and fall apart easily," says CEO of The Safe + Fair Food Company, Will Holsworth. "We created these mixes not only to satisfy both food allergy sufferers and sweet-lovers alike, but to bring convenient and versatile products to families across the country."

The new bar mixes join SAFE + FAIR's existing portfolio of granola, pea protein chips, popcorn quinoa chips, cookies and grahams.

Today, more than 15 million Americans suffer from food allergies, with eight food categories accounting for 90 percent of all allergic reactions – milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish and shellfish.  As a testament to its mission to serving the food allergy community, The Safe + Fair Food Company donates three percent of proceeds to the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford University to help find treatments and develop cures for people with food allergies.

The new baking mixes are now available for purchase at www.safeandfair.com and can be shipped nationwide. Each flavor is sold in a 20.6-ounce bag and can be purchased for $4.99 with free shipping for a limited time.

To learn more about and purchase the bar mixes and other SAFE + FAIR products, please visit www.safeandfair.com.

About The Safe + Fair Food Company 
The Safe + Fair Food Company was founded by friends Dave Leyrer and Pete Najarian, who found themselves frustrated by the lack of safe foods for their kids, Abby and Remy, who both happened to have nut allergies. Dave and Pete set out to make living with food allergies easier and more delicious for families like theirs by creating products both safe for food allergic kids AND so appealing that all kids love them. The SAFE + FAIR mission is to provide food with clear information and affordable prices – so whoever does the shopping can make easier, faster, more inclusive choices. We donate 3 percent of our proceeds to the Sean N. Parker for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford University. Learn more at www.safeandfair.com.

And at only 60 calories or less, these whole food-based beverages give you all of the benefits, but none of the guilt.

"Developing a line of functional on-the-go beverages was easily the quickest decision when debating the next product line at Vital. We wanted to find an easy entry point for consumers to get a serving of collagen while also adding a product for those customers that needed a little help staying on track when life gets busy," explains Kurt Seidensticker, Founder and CEO of Vital Proteins.

Drink Spotlight: Revive Kombucha Launches Shelf-Stable Sparkling Kombucha


Sparkling Kombucha in Cans Offers Functional Refreshment With Only 5g of Sugar and 20 Calories

PETALUMA, Calif., March 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In the spirit of making kombucha more accessible and convenient to consumers everywhere, Revive Kombucha™ announced today the launch of Revive Sparkling Kombucha™, a traditionally fermented, organic and shelf-stable craft brew. Available in 12-ounce cans, Revive Sparkling Kombucha is incredibly light and refreshing, with only 5g of sugar and 20 calories per can.  Each of the four unique flavors - Mango Orange, Cherry Hibiscus, Strawberry Lemon, and Citrus Ginger - contains 5 billion live probiotics at the time of manufacture to support digestive and immune health.

"Revive began with the simple idea to brew great tasting kombucha so people could kick their soda habits, just like I did so many years ago when my wife Rebekah handed me my first bottle. This is the closest we've come to meeting our original mission, as Revive Sparkling Kombucha is super tasty, yet doesn't have a lot of sugar or calories and is loaded with live probiotics," said Sean J. Lovett, Founder and President of Revive Kombucha. "Kombucha changed my life and putting this beverage in a transportable can and making it shelf stable means so many more people who are hooked on sugary sodas can more easily make the switch, without sacrifice of taste, to enjoy kombucha."

Revive maintains their innovative approach to batch brewing and natural fermentation methods with the new Revive Sparkling Kombucha line, which is nearly identical to the process of their raw and refrigerated bottled kombucha. The difference is the Sparkling Kombucha line undergoes a proprietary pasteurization process while incorporating a naturally fermented and live probiotic, DE111.  These very hardy bacteria protect themselves in varying conditions and only awaken when they hit the pH of your gut. "Our consumers are active so a portable, shelf stable can makes complete sense, yet we didn't want to stop there. We wanted to push the lower limits on sugar and calories. Our sweet spot for Revive Sparkling Kombucha is the kombucha drinker that wants a lighter version they can drink more of, and the sparkling water drinker that wants added benefits from probiotics," adds Josh Mohr, Vice President of Marketing for Revive Kombucha.

The four super tasty flavors of Revive Sparkling Kombucha, all brewed with unique kombucha cultures, include:

  • Mango Orange – traditionally fermented with a black tea brew.
  • Cherry Hibiscus – traditionally fermented with a hibiscus flower brew, and naturally caffeine free.
  • Strawberry Lemon – traditionally fermented with a unique blend of hibiscus and yerba mate brews.
  • Citrus Ginger – traditionally fermented with a ginger brew, and naturally caffeine free.

In addition to the new Sparkling Kombucha line, Revive offers an array of wildly delicious, naturally fermented, organic, non-GMO, raw, and ethically sourced kombucha available in bottles, growlers and on-tap.

Revive Sparkling Kombucha is currently available at select natural and specialty retailers in Northern California such as GoodEggs.com and Oliver's Markets. "We're currently testing in our backyard and look forward to rolling out Revive Sparkling Kombucha to a broader audience when ready," said Lovett.

About Revive Kombucha:
Revive Kombucha is a culture-driven, craft kombucha brewery launched at the Sonoma County Farmers Market in 2010 and located in Petaluma, CA. Their mission has always been to sustainably produce the best tasting kombucha using the highest quality ingredients and most innovative craft brewing techniques: from their vertically integrated brewery, to being the first to market with brewing innovations (hibiscus and ginger caffeine free brews, and other non-tea brews with coffee, yerba mate and cacao) in their product line. Revive works as hard to take care of the people and world around them as they do in brewing their kombucha. This shows in their sustainability initiatives—from their early efforts with bio-diesel delivery and award-winning Bottle Exchange program, to their current efforts with water reclamation and conservation in the brew process, and always offering living-wages and above standard benefits to employees. For more information, visit https://revivekombucha.com. Join the Revive Kombucha conversation: @revivekombucha on Twitter and Instagram and facebook.com/revivekombucha.


Revive Sparkling Kombucha delivers functional refreshment with only 5g of sugar and 20 calories per shelf-stable can.

Beer News: 19 Crimes launches beer in the US


OAKLAND, Calif., March 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The hugely popular 19 Crimes wine brand is poised to launch three craft beers in the US on March 1st — an India Pale Ale, a Pilsner and a Lager.

"19 Crimes is in its sixth year of phenomenal growth in the US, with sales exceeding two million cases," states Michelle Terry, CMO of Treasury Wine Estates. "We know that our 19 Crimes wine lovers also highly index as consumers of craft beer. There is so much opportunity with this brand, and our retailers and customers have been asking us to expand into other alcohol beverages."

All 19 Crimes beers ($12.99 SRP per 6 pack) will be available in cans with labels featuring the familiar faces of John Boyle O'Reilly, Michael Harrington and Cornelius Dwyer Kane, meaning the augmented reality will also work on the cans. The beers will be tested in Ohio initially and will expand to more states in the US by the end of the year.

The Pilsner is made in a refreshing style with a medium dry finish. The India Pale Ale is a modern American IPA that is approachable yet complex and the Lager is clean and crisp, balancing bready malts with Old World and New World hop flavor.

19 Crimes was the first wine brand to bring augmented reality to the convicts turned colonists on the labels. Each rogue pictured comes to life to tell their unique story through the Living Wine Labels app.

You can download the Living Wine Labels app from the Apple app store and Google Play Store.

To learn more about 19 Crimes, please visit 19Crimes.com and follow us on Facebook 19crimes, on Instagram @19crimeswine and on Twitter @19crimes

For more information please contact 19 Crimes Public Relations Director at lily.lane@tweglobal.com or +1 707.363.4146


19 Crimes turned convicts into colonists. In 18th-century Britain, criminals guilty of at least one of the 19 crimes, were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. For the rough-hewn prisoners who made it to shore, a new world awaited. As pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick. Today, 19 Crimes wines celebrate the rebellious spirit of the more than 160 ,000 exiled men and women, the rule breakers and law defying citizens that forged a new culture and national spirit in Australia.

Then more Mediterranean Mint gelato and finished with fair trade chocolate cookie pieces. This takes the Talenti Mediterranean Mint gelato to a whole new level.
  • Dark Chocolate Cherry: This Layers jar was inspired by a cherry cordial and features the perfect pairing of dark chocolate and black cherry. Starting with Talenti Double Dark gelato with sophisticated hints of vermouth, followed by chocolate flakes, a black cherry sauce, more Double Dark gelato and finished with a layer of fudge truffles.


"Talenti Gelato Layers truly brings our commitment to craftsmanship to life," said Josh Hochschuler, founder of Talenti.

To celebrate the new Layers products, Talenti will unveil the Talenti Spooneasy – a hidden gelato speakeasy in New York City – on Mar. 20 and 21. The Talenti Spooneasy will be the most exclusive way for gelato lovers to experience Talenti Layers.

The space will be a twist on a classic speakeasy, featuring signature-crafted cocktails, a Talenti Layers station where guests will be among the first to taste the new Layers varieties and more. Admission to the Talenti Spooneasy is free and open to the public, but spots are limited. Fans are encouraged to make a reservation at Eventbrite.com.

"The Talenti Layers range is the most innovative and decadent in the Talenti portfolio," said Leslie Miller, Marketing Director of Ice Cream at Unilever. "We drew inspiration from this line to create a one-of-a-kind experience for consumers – it's a space that feels as decadent as the jars themselves. We can't wait for our fans to join us and taste Talenti in a whole new way."

About Talenti® Gelato & Sorbetto
Talenti began as a gelateria in 2003 and has since grown into the best-selling packaged gelato in the United States. A wholly-owned subsidiary of Unilever, Talenti is committed to using artisanal methods and uses only the finest, carefully sourced ingredients – Belgian Chocolate, select coconuts from the Philippines and dulce de leche from a classic Argentinian recipe are just a few of the many fine ingredients used to create Talenti gelatos and sorbettos.
