Food News: Award-winning Pipers Crisp Co. Potato Chips Joins Liberty Richter

 

BLOOMFIELD, N.J., June 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The award-winning British Pipers Crisps potato chips will now be enjoyed by more Americans. It is the newest brand to partner with the Liberty Richter division of World Finer Foods, a premier marketer of imported and domestic specialty foods in the U.S.

Pipers Crisp Co. was founded by three British farmers with the aim of making potato chips just as they should taste. And, since they began in 2004, UK potato chip fans haven't been able to get enough of Pipers Crisp Co. specialty chips

Pipers chips start with the finest quality potatoes. These are hand-fried at the optimal temperature and duration for perfect crispness, then dressed with authentic, sustainably-sourced seasonings from around the world. These include spices from India, herbs from Morocco, cheese, charcuterie and cider from England.

"We source all our flavors from passionate producers across the world to ensure our taste and quality is second to none," says Pipers Crisp founder Alex Albone. "They all share our vision of producing Britain's finest, premium potato chips."

"Pipers Crisp Co. is a young and exciting brand with great values and a strong, loyal customer base in the UK," said World Finer Foods President and CEO Susan Guerin. "We think their brand attributes, not to mention their delicious chips, will resonate with U.S. consumers as well as with all trade channels and food service customers. We're delighted to have them join the World Finer Foods family."

For five years in a row, Pipers Crisp Co. has been voted Britain's "Best Brand" of savory snack by the readers of Fine Food Digest. All Pipers Crisp varieties are gluten-free, wheat-free and barley-free, and Liberty Richter will market and distribute four flavors.

Cheddar & Onion: Cheddar produced in a village named Cheddar has to be good. With 400 years of farming behind them, the Alvis family still uses traditional methods to produce their cheese. By hand-turning and stacking the curds allows them to mature and develop the full, distinctive West Country farmhouse Cheddar flavor that goes into a bag of Pipers.

Sea Salt: Pure, naturally formed sea salt is harvested from the Menai Straits on the island of Anglesey in Wales. The salt has been granted EU protected status - the perfect, simple ingredient for a Pipers chip.

Black Pepper & Sea Salt: Tellicherry peppercorns, considered to be the world's finest variety, are grown in southern India and harvested just before they ripen to develop a distinctively deep, rich and robust flavor.

Cider Vinegar & Sea Salt: Now you can eat your cider vinegar! This Pipers variety is seasoned with the sharp flavor of vintage cider apples grown in Somerset, southwest England. The farm has been producing cider for over 150 years.

Learn more about Britain's best premium potato chips at World Finer Foods' booth #1336 at the Summer Fancy Food Show June 25-27 at the Javits Center in New York City.

Industry News: Tessemae’s Expands Clean Label Portfolio With Organic Condiments in More Stores

 

 

BALTIMORE, June 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tessemae's, a leader in the fresh salad dressing category, is no stranger to condiments. Tessemae's has been manufacturing condiments in their existing line since 2013.

Tessemae's has developed a full line of organic condiments to be merchandised in the produce department alongside the current salad dressing line up. The portfolio includes buffalo sauces, mayonnaise, mustards, BBQ sauce and ketchup. The organic Ketchup and organic BBQ sauce are vegan and contain zero added sugars – a differentiator in an otherwise saturated market. These products are championed by diabetics, the paleo community and the Whole30 community. After being introduced on Tessemaes.com, ketchup and BBQ sauce quickly rocketed to the top to become the #1 and #2 sellers, proving the demand for low sugar or no sugar added condiments in the marketplace.

Tessemae's will be launching their condiment line in multiple Kroger divisions this month.  Ketchup, BBQ, and Mayo will be available to consumers next to the current dressing line in the refrigerated produce section. Target and Meijer will continue to carry Tessemae's condiments and the Company has an aggressive roll-out plan with other key retail partners for the balance of the year

Greg Vetter, CEO of Tessemae's says, "The millennial mom is dictating a majority of the food trend changes today that will continue over the next decade. She wants a clean, delicious tasting option for her family and that ranges from organic produce all the way to fresh condiments. You shouldn't have to compromise on ketchup for your kids just because 'it's always been done this way'. Our condiments change the way you view what's good for you."

Tessemae's continues to field demand for its organic Mayo - one of very few options widely available on shelves that is sugar free. The spread is made with high quality ingredients including cage-free eggs, fresh lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and sea salt. Organic mayo follows organic ketchup and BBQ as the third best seller on Tessemaes.com.

"Our Mayo is made just as it should be, using the same real ingredients you'd use to make it at home. Alternate and vegan mayos have been getting a lot of attention lately, and our mayo deserves to share the spotlight. It is the first truly clean label refrigerated mayonnaise: free of gums, sugar and unnecessary preservatives. The result? It's also the best tasting mayo on the market," says EVP of R&D for Tessemae's, Kristen Dittami.

While Tessemae's is on the fast track for tremendous growth this year, they stand by their original mission: to simplify food and amplify life. They will not be changing formulas or adding ingredients that don't belong for the sake of cutting costs or pleasing investors.

"The condiment category in the U.S. is now over $6 billion dollars in sales but has not experienced the growth that we think it can because there has been no real innovation. We are here to disrupt that with true, clean label offerings that have a very unique flavor profile which consumers love," says Vetter.

About Tessemae's
Tessemae's is an organic fresh food company that makes products with real, whole ingredients.  The Vetter brothers, Greg, Brian, and Matt, launched the brand in 2009 at their local Whole Foods Market in Annapolis, Maryland, using a simple salad dressing recipe created and used by their mom throughout their childhood.  Tessemae's commitment to healthy eating and living is the core of their mission. Provide simple, yet delicious food to consumers made with real ingredients.  Available in Whole Foods Market, Kroger, Safeway, Target, The Fresh Market, WalMart, and Earthfare retailers across the country, Tessemae's products are creating a new standard in the produce department and raising consumer awareness on the importance of consuming real, clean ingredients.  For more information please visit www.tessemaes.com.

Distribution Spotlight: Alberta Rye Dark Batch Launches in the U.S Market

 

 

 

Award-Winning Whisky Challenges Consumers to Rethink Their Rye

 

Deerfield, Ill. (April 2, 2015) - Alberta® Rye Dark Batch™ Whisky, from the renowned Alberta Distillers Ltd., launches today in the U.S. market. This critically acclaimed super-premium rye whisky features an incomparable rich color and complex flavor paired with remarkable smoothness and character.

 

Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky boasts flavors of honey and oak and imparts hints of vanilla, smoke, sweet oak and savory dried fruit, such as plum and blackcurrant, on the palate. Bottled at 90 proof and best enjoyed in a variety of whisky cocktails, Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky is challenging bartenders and consumers to rethink their rye and give cocktails a new interpretation.

 

“As the rye whisky category continues to grow, we’re thrilled to be able to introduce a new product to U.S. whisky lovers,” said Dan Tullio, Canadian Whisky Master Ambassador at Beam Suntory. “With Alberta Distillers’ rich heritage producing superior rye whisky, Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky combines contemporary flavor trends with classic notes of premium rye whisky, offering mixologists, spirits connoisseurs and whisky enthusiasts a one-of-a-kind whisky with a robust, sophisticated flavor.”

 

Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky features a blend of 91% rye whisky, 8% bourbon and 1% sherry to add layers of complexity in each bottle. The distinct rich color of the liquid comes from a combination of factors, including the aging process, which incorporates both new charred American white oak and once-used American bourbon barrels. Other contributing factors include the addition of a touch of sherry and Alberta, Canada’s high altitude, desert-like humidity levels and extreme seasonal and daily temperature changes, which promote maturation.

 

“Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky truly embodies the distinguished flavor whisky aficionados seek,” said Davin de Kergommeaux, award-winning author and whisky industry influencer. “The unique distillation process and grain bill of the rye sets it apart from other rye whiskies, in terms of flavor and quality.”

Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky is at its best in cocktails that highlight its distinctive flavor, such as the Rye Squeeze below, and can also be enjoyed neat.

 

Rye Squeeze

1½ parts Alberta® Rye Dark Batch™ Whisky

4-5 parts ginger beer

2 dashes Angostura® bitters

1 orange wedge pressed

 

METHOD: Add all ingredients to a lowball glass. Fill with ice, top with ginger beer and stir. Garnish with an orange wedge.

 

Prior to hitting shelves in the U.S., Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky quickly became an award-winning whisky with accolades from top international spirits competitions, including Chairman’s Trophy at the 2014 Ultimate Spirits Challenge, Double Gold at the 2014 New York World Wine & Spirits Competition and Gold & Best of Class - Canadian Whisky from Spirits of the Americas 2014.

 

Alberta Distillers Ltd., North America’s largest producer of 100% rye, carefully crafts Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky with glacial-borne water. The distillery, which has been in operation since 1946, was built in southern Alberta because the area’s dry climate and high altitude are ideal for rye crop growth.

 

For additional cocktail recipes and more information on Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky, which sells at a suggested retail price of $29.99 for a 750ml bottle, please visit www.AlbertaRye.com.
