Packaged Facts: U.S. retail pizza market experiences boom
ROCKVILLE, Md. — The U.S. frozen and refrigerated pizza market will register sales of nearly $5 billion at retail, according to a recently released Packaged Facts report.
"The Pizza Market in the U.S.: Foodservice and Retail" report noted that 24% of U.S. consumers frequent the frozen food cases for pizza on a monthly basis, which has helped drive sales. Additionally, private-label continues to gain sales — and steal share — in each of three mass-market pizza segments: frozen pizza, pizza products and refrigerated pizza. On store shelves, category growth is primarily on the natural and organic front: Among the top 12 frozen pizza manufacturers, significant growth has come only from Newman’s Own and Amy’s Kitchen, Packaged Facts found.

Shop ‘n Save kicks off ‘Lend a Can’ hunger relief program
KIRKWOOD, Mo. — Supervalu banner Shop ‘n Save has launched a program to combat hunger.
The "Lend a Can" program, which kicked off Sept. 23 and will run through Oct. 13, is designed to benefit hungry people and pets. As part of the program, the retailer is partnering with various community allies, including Del Monte Foods and the St. Louis Area Foodbank. How it works: Signs at Shop ‘n Save stores will encourage customers to donate canned goods and pet food at participating metro-area schools, which will be collecting the items for the food bank and the animal shelter, respectively. Shoppers can visit Stlfoodbank.org and click on the "Lend a Can" icon, followed by the "Register Your School" link, for a list of participating schools. The school that collects the most pounds of food will receive $2,500. Five second-place schools will each receive $1,000.
In addition to the food drive, Del Monte will donate 25 cents for each Meow Mix, Pup-Peroni and Kibbles ‘n Bits item purchased at Shop ‘n Save, with the funds benefiting Five Acres Animal Shelter, located in St. Charles. What’s more, shoppers have the opportunity to be rewarded during the campaign. Customers who purchase 10 cans of Del Monte canned goods at any Shop ‘n Save store can receive a $5 gift card from the retailer by mail-in rebate, Shop ‘n Save said.
"We are excited about our involvement with the ‘Lend a Can’ campaign," Shop ‘n Save president Marlene Gebhard said. "As a grocery retailer, providing hunger relief is very important to us, so we are pleased to have this opportunity to help those in need, including beloved pets."
