There were several products at the show positioned
solely around the company’s socially-responsible
business. Project 7 is a for-profit company asking
consumers to take part and help “change the score.”
Project 7 sells everyday products, such as bottled
water and gum, to help contribute to seven critical
needs in the world, with at least 50% of its profits
going to non-profit organizations that service these
needs. Teatulía sells teas that come from a virgin
soil tea garden in Bangladesh. Teatulía’s sales are
directed toward its mission to help better the lives
of the people of Bangladesh while rebuilding the
ecosystem. BuyWell Fair Trade Coffee invests in
sustainable development initiatives in communities
where the coffee is grown, and in its home location.
MAke it CruNCH.
Pita Chips started this trend, and other
breads are following. From Flamous Brands,
we tasted delicious Falafel Chips, and New
York Style is launching Focaccia Sticks. From
Tyrells, we also saw root vegetable chips, like
beetroot, parsnips, and carrots, along with
apple chips. The size of the chip category
would suggest: if you can make it crunch,
you have a winner.

Our “VieW OF tHe NeW” At tHe 2009 FANCY FOOD SHOW

Given consumer concerns for the environment and
slowing water sales due to the economic downturn,
it was interesting to see continued innovations in
water. From Ganic Water, the world’s first aroma
water, to VitaSprings that is naturally filtered
through layers of electrically charged clay. From
Good Vibes for You of Australia that positions
itself around “creating more happiness on the
planet” to AquaDeco that sought out water that
was worthy of its highly designed bottle. Water
continues to attract innovators. You also had
the makers of MetroMint expanding their product
line with their new MetroElectro water with
antioxidants, electrolytes, and zinc.
