S TA T E O F T H E I N D U S T R Y R E P O R T Frito-Lay’s seasoning professionals also created regionally inspired flavors such as Tangy Carolina BBQ and Garden Tomato & Basil with all-natural ingredients, and the company announced it would launch products throughout 2011 made with all-natural ingredients. Frito-Lay pointed out that its reformulated products are easily recognizable because of a stamp on packages that call out that they are made with allnatural ingredients. Although it’s a much smaller brand, Utz Natural potato chips from Utz Quality Foods, Hanover, PA, increased dollar sales by 9% during the past year, while sales of regular Utz potato chips were up only 1.7% during the same period. Alec Sivel, the company’s vice-president of marketing, noted that the consumers are looking for healthier alternatives. And natural products are generally perceived as better for you. Mystic Chips, a line of kettle-style potato chips from Utz, experienced even greater growth. According to SymphonyIRI data, dollar sales of the brand rose 91.8% this past year. New Englanders are driving a lot of those sales, according to Ms. Sivel, who pointed out that the chips sell for $2 per bag, offering a lower price point than many kettle-style chips. Shearer’s Foods, Inc., Brewster, OH, is the largest manufacturer of kettle-style chips in North America, according to Jeff Binczyk, vice-president, marketing. “I think that is a segment of the category that going to continue to grow,” he added. “There is a consumer perception that kettle chips Top Potato Chip Brands Brand / Vendor Dollar Sales ($mil) Dollar Sales % Change 3.8 (3.3) 13.1 (6.3) (1.2) 5.1 1.7 1,320.7 (0.5) (7.2) 11.0 6.0 4.4 4.8 0.8 10.7 20.5 (6.4) 38.2 (5.8) 153.4 35.0 3.1 (2.7) (1.1) (30.1) 1.0 (17.8) (4.7) (21.7) Unit Sales (mil) 1,633.9 427.5 132.0 120.0 139.6 118.6 83.7 52.3 48.6 35.0 38.3 35.3 31.5 32.0 17.0 7.8 17.8 20.8 12.7 8.1 10.6 12.5 7.1 7.0 15.3 19.3 7.5 4.2 7.2 3.8 Unit Sales Volume Volume Sales % Change Sales % Change (mil lb) 5.8 0.4 22.7 (3.9) 0.0 6.0 1.8 1,920.4 6.9 (7.7) 15.8 10.3 5.4 (5.5) (0.7) 5.9 15.3 (4.7) 52.5 0.5 164.9 23.2 6.1 (4.7) 1.2 (14.0) 9.0 (17.8) (4.1) (21.9) 826.4 225.1 66.3 81.7 81.5 47.0 35.2 33.5 24.6 17.2 18.8 18.9 15.4 15.4 9.6 3.9 5.2 6.1 6.0 4.6 1.8 5.6 5.4 2.5 5.3 4.5 4.3 1.7 3.7 1.6 5.0 (2.3) 17.5 (3.8) (1.1) 6.1 1.3 2,333.0 5.2 (9.0) 11.8 8.6 6.7 5.9 (0.6) 9.0 17.5 (7.4) 42.8 0.5 172.7 44.1 8.3 (4.7) 1.3 (23.1) 5.4 (17.8) (2.7) (21.8) Potato Chips - total 3,602.0 Lay’s/Frito-Lay North America, Inc. 912.3 Ruffles/Frito-Lay North America, Inc. 345.7 Wavy Lay’s/Frito-Lay North America, Inc. 309.9 Private label 245.8 Pringles Super Stack/Procter & Gamble 192.3 Utz/Utz Quality Foods 145.3 Lay’s Natural/Frito-Lay North America, Inc. 139.1 Lay’s Kettle Cooked/Frito-Lay North America, Inc. 131.6 Baked Lay’s/Frito-Lay North America, Inc. 109.7 Kettle/Kettle Foods, Inc. 105.9 Cape Cod/Cape Cod Potato Chip 102.3 Herr’s/Herr Foods, Inc. 63.7 Wise/Wise Foods 60.5 Baked Ruffles/Frito-Lay North America, Inc. 59.4 Pringles Snack Stacks/Procter & Gamble 31.4 Munchos/Frito-Lay North America, Inc. 29.8 Golden Flake/Golden Flake Snack Foods 29.8 Jays Krunchers/Snyder’s of Hanover 29.3 Ruffles Reduced Fat/Frito-Lay North America, Inc. 26.4 Pop Chips/Pop Chips 24.6 Jays/Snyder’s of Hanover 21.5 Old Dutch/Old Dutch Foods, Inc. 20.5 Pringles Light/Procter & Gamble 19.7 Lay’s Stax/Frito-Lay North America, Inc. 19.6 Pringles/Procter & Gamble 17.9 Better Made Special/Better Made Snack Foods, Inc. 16.5 Ruffles Light/Frito-Lay North America, Inc. 16.5 Snyder of Berlin/Snyder of Berlin 16.0 Lay’s Light/Frito-Lay North America, Inc. 15.1 Source: InfoScan Reviews Total US - Supermarkets, Drugstores and Mass Merchandisers (excluding Wal-Mart) 52 Weeks Ending Feb. 20, 2011 18 Snack World May 2011 www.sfa.org BROUGHT TO YOU BY HEAT AND CONTROL, MANE, PRINTPACK, INC., AND J.R.
