Super Leaders are the most influential group in brand preference

Super Leaders – a newly-defined digital community of early adopters and brand amplifiers – are now the most influential group in building, or eroding, brand preference, according to the Tetra Pak Index 2017. Companies that fail to engage with Super Leaders in the right way risk missing the opportunity to harness their influence and help them build their business.

Brands need to focus their online engagement on a new generation of influencers if they are to thrive in a connected, information-saturated world, according to the Tetra Pak 2017 Index. The company has identified a group of Super Leaders, the most influential subset of the wider online community. When engaged, these influencers can become brand advocates to spread messages, shape opinions and help build trust in products.

The report shows that third-party, user-generated content is becoming increasingly important, and is often more convincing than direct communications from brands. By engaging the Super Leaders, brands can concentrate their resources on a smaller group, while reaching a wider connected audience. As case studies in the report illustrate, many brands have already begun this approach.

The types of dairy alternatives available consists of almond milk , soy milk , rice milk , coconut milk and various other nut based milks such as cashew , hazelnut etc.

Dairy Alternatives comes with numerous health related benefits, including high energy levels as compared to normal dairy products which are expected to be the key factors, because of which, people are shifting from regular products or beverages to their alternatives.

The demand for dairy alternatives is driven by growing consumer liking for lactose-free food products including cheese, desserts, and snacks. Rising consumer focus on the nutritional values offered by the product such as low calories and high proteins and vitamins is likely to have a positive impact on the industry.

Moreover, the swing of consumer base towards vegan diet owing to certain aspects including animal rights and environment protection are anticipated to drive the demand for dairy alternatives over the forecast period.

Pepparkaksfil från Falköping

PepparkaksfilEnligt en myt blir snäll av att äta pepparkakor. Hur myten uppkom är oklart. Pepparkakor var uppskattade i Norden, inte minst av kungligheter. Unionskungen Hans sägs ha ordinerats pepparkakor mot sitt dåliga humör av sin doktor. Det förekommer även andra teorier. En är att pottaska, som förr användes som hävningsmedel vid pepparkaksbak, även bidrog till att mildra magbesvär efter förtäring av julmat och att personerna därmed blev snällare.
Om du blir extra snäll eller inte av Falköpings goda och krämiga pepparkaksfil, kan väl vara osagt. Men en härlig måltid med en god fil är väl aldrig fel ändå.

Milk goes down and non-dairy goes up in the US

Per capita consumption of fluid milk beverages decreased by close to 22% from 2000 to 2016. Through the same period, consumption of non-dairy plant-based milk alternatives has increased by triple digits. The decrease in dairy milk consumption can be interpreted as each consumer going from 10 glasses of milk each week to eight glasses per week, not much on an individual level but enormous when viewed in terms of the whole population on an annual basis. Even so, milk is still being consumed in over 90% of the households in the U.S, a report from Package Facts says.

Package Facts concludes that the reasons behind the decline in dairy milk consumption and the reasons for the rise in plant-based milks, such as health concerns, with a growing number of consumers coming to believe that plant-based foods are healthier than animal-based foods. Further, the report considers the growing consumer base that is motivated by animal welfare concerns, leading them to choose plant-based beverages, as well as other plant-based foods over animal-based products.

Arla and the Food Banks (FEBA) have signed an agreement to donate surplus products

Arla and the European Federation of Food Banks (FEBA) have signed an agreement to donate surplus products through the FEBA network partners in Europe.

The agreement formalises and builds on the partnerships already in place between Arla and local food bank FEBA members such as Fareshare in the UK, Fødevarebanken in Denmark and the Dutch food bank.

“Arla’s local partners are a great resource competent-wise and are often very active on a national level to influence policy making and communicating about the challenges. The new partnership strengthens our ability to benefit from the large network of food banks around Europe in case there are large surplus volumes to be redistributed, which is not possible for local food banks to absorb,” says Kristian Østerling Eriknauer, vice president of CSR in Arla.

In partnering with the FEBA, a non-profit network organisation which brings together 326 food banks in 23 countries throughout Europe, Arla intends to further increase its provision of food supplies to help support those in need. The move will also help Arla to achieve its goal to reduce food waste by halfby 2020.

Dairy industry pushing forward to commercialise science and drive innovation

The dairy industry is at the vanguard of commercialising research and development initiatives that will drive innovation, delegates at the International Dairy Federation (IDF) World Dairy Summit in Belfast were told.

In a session chaired by Dr Jeremy Hill, Chief Science and Technology Officer of Fonterra, experts in the field of research and development in the dairy sector provided insight into how scientific breakthroughs will drive innovation and help define the industry’s vision for the future.

Dr Margrethe Jonkman, Corporate Director of Research and Development at FrieslandCampina, said: “Innovation is fundamental to the ongoing success of our industry and ensuring that dairy remains relevant in the long term. The current focus on sustainability must continue if the sector is to reduce its environmental footprint. More than ever, it is vitally important that innovation adds value not only to the producer but also to the consumer.”
