Annie Chun’s refreshes brand, expands offerings

BY David Salazar
ANAHEIM, Calif. — Pan-Asian snack and meal company Annie Chun’s has unveiled a new look for its brand, as well as new products ahead of Natural Products Expo West, which will be held from March 10-12. 
 
The company is rolling out its Asian Entrees, as well as sea salt and sea salt and vinegar varieties of its Organic Seaweed Snacks. 
 
"At Annie Chun's, we're responding to the growing demand for shelf-stable Asian foods and snack options that not only taste good but are better-for-you," Annie Chun’s head of corporate marketing and planning Nayoung Shin said "We're taking bigger strides by providing customers with more flavors of our popular Organic Seaweed Snacks and introducing new Asian Entrees that are not only deliciously packed with high-fiber grains and vegetables, but also made with non-GMO and gluten-free ingredients. Our expanded line provides more choices for those with dietary restrictions since we know it's difficult to find Asian options in this category."  
 
Products in the Asian Entrees line are gluten-free and non-GMO Project Verified, and they come in three varieties: red curry, green curry and sesame soy noodle. These will retail for $2.99. The new seaweed snack varieties, set to retail for $1.99 are gluten-free, dairy-free and certified vegan. 
 
Annie Chun’s currently has products in such retailers as Gelson’s, King Sooper’s, Publix, SuperTarget and Whole Foods.

Ritz intros Crisp and Thins baked chip

BY David Salazar
EAST HANOVER, N.J. — Ritz is unveiling its new Ritz Crisp and Thins in four flavors, the brand announced Monday. Ritz Crisp and Thins are available in sea salt, cream cheese and onion, salt and vinegar and bacon. 
 
The product, which saw success in the United Kingdom, is aimed at responding to consumer demand for better-for-you chip options that don’t sacrifice flavor, the company said.
 
"From March Madness parties to summer barbecues and everything in between, Ritz has been a mainstay on the party table since 1934," Ritz equity director for North America, Lauren Sella, said. "We're excited to build on Ritz’s iconic heritage with something distinctly new, and we're confident that, with just one bite of Ritz Crisp and Thins, our fans will share in our enthusiasm. This is a chip that's thin and crispy, perfect for munching, and the rich flavors bring it to the next level. It's unlike anything Ritz has ever offered before."
 
Ritz Crisp and Thins are available at select retailers for a retail price of $3.69, and single-serve packs are available at convenience stores for a suggested price of $1.49.
