Food Business in the News “I had hoped it would be a friendlier transaction, but the challenge was that the target wasn’t anxious to be acquired.” Irene Rosenfeld, chairman and chief executive officer of Kraft Foods Inc., discussing the hostile takeover of Cadbury. Bloomberg Businessweek May 30-June 5, 2011 “As the economy has not been so strong, brands have been digging into their numbers more to see where growth is going to come from. Most of the growth from one census to the next has been in nonwhites, and if brands are spending the same amount of money on a smaller and smaller group, they’re getting worse and worse R.O.I. (return on investment).” Alain Groenendaal, chief executive of Wing, an advertising agency that focuses on Latino marketing, discussing emerging marketing trends. “There’s still that customer who has four quarters in his ash tray that he wants to scrape together and spend on a beverage.” David McMichael, the Dr Pepper Snapple Group’s vice-president of sales to convenience stores and gasoline stations, discussing why beverage makers are introducing smaller, lower price packaging formats. The Wall Street Journal May 28-29, 2011 The New York Times May 26, 2011 “It’s not just another flavored sugar water differentiated by color or taste or flavor. It’s an efficiency product. I’m talking about improving endurance, concentration, reaction time, speed, vigilance and emotional status. Taste is of no importance whatsoever.” Dietrich Mateschitz, the founder of Red Bull, discussing why traditional food and beverage product performance metrics do not apply to the energy drink. “Today’s moms are in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and (1970s) packaging is what they remember.” Amy Clark, director of snack marketing for Hostess Brands, Inc., discussing the return of some past packaging designs. The Wall Street Journal May 25, 2011 Bloomberg Businessweek May 23-29, 2011 “We’ve got people setting up shop like they have real estate on sidewalks.” Desley Brooks, an Oakland, Calif., councilwoman, discussing why laws and regulations are necessary to regulate the city’s growing number of food trucks.
