SALSA AND DIPS Salsa Dips, Dips Rise Because snack manufacturers continue to expand the flavor varieties, consumers don’t have to rely on dips or salsas to add taste to their plain potato or tortilla chips. However, the rise of salsa to its position as a staple of the American diet is well documented. But after several years of sales increases, salsa sales declined 4.2% for the 52 weeks ending Feb. 20, 2011, according to SymphonyIRI. As with many segments of the snack industry, Frito-Lay North America, Plano, TX, is one of the top vendors of both dips and salsas. The company’s Tostitos brand salsa is No. 1 in the segment and accounted for 37% of all salsa dollar sales this past year, according to SymphonyIRI. And this was in spite of the fact that its sales fell 7% during that same period. Trends such as all-natural, fresh and restaurant-inspired continue to drive sales of salsa, and companies continue to introduce new varieties to attract new purchases. For example, Herr Foods, Inc., Nottingham, PA, offers a Southwestern Blackbean and Corn Salsa, which it describes as capturing “all the robust flavor and zesty delight that is a hallmark of Southwestern cuisine.” As for dips, Frito-Lay owns the Top 3 brands in the shelf-stable dip segment: Fritos, Tostitos and Lay’s. And these three brands account for 59% of the total dip/dip mixes category. — Shane Whitaker Top Salsa and Dip Brands Brand (segment) / Vendor Dollar Sales ($mil) 385.3 329.4 55.9 90.9 81.6 55.5 29.2 24.2 11.4 8.1 7.5 6.0 5.9 5.1 4.8 4.7 4.6 4.4 1,062.7 752.2 127.9 110.1 72.6 278.0 124.4 101.1 70.0 35.3 34.7 29.6 28.2 27.1 25.2 Dollar Sales % Change 1.5 0.7 6.1 (5.6) 8.5 (0.1) (3.9) (2.9) 13.4 (6.3) 11.7 62.6 (1.6) (6.4) 9.4 1.5 7.7 2,334.4 (3.2) (4.2) 1.8 (5.9) 4.0 (7.0) 3.9 (5.8) (14.6) (0.4) 6.1 (0.3) (1.3) (2.2) 0.4 Unit Sales (mil) 152.0 111.1 40.9 35.5 24.6 16.2 7.2 14.1 5.3 3.0 2.9 2.7 1.9 1.8 5.2 1.6 4.9 2.1 408.2 269.1 62.9 41.8 34.4 85.7 55.1 36.9 22.4 13.6 16.3 15.5 12.5 15.1 9.5 Unit Sales Volume Volume Sales % Change Sales % Change (mil lb) 1.7 0.3 5.7 (6.8) 9.0 0.5 (5.8) (1.3) 10.9 (7.1) 9.7 67.9 (1.1) (5.0) 2.1 (9.7) 3.1 2,303.3 (1.7) (3.1) 3.1 (3.4) 2.9 (7.5) 5.3 (2.1) (10.8) 1.2 4.0 (0.3) 2.9 (0.6) (0.5) 86.0 83.2 2.8 20.1 23.9 14.8 6.5 1.0 4.0 1.6 1.4 0.3 1.6 1.0 0.3 0.7 0.3 1.6 431.2 290.6 63.0 53.7 23.9 90.7 67.1 48.1 27.8 16.2 10.9 12.8 19.1 12.2 9.5 1.9 1.7 8.1 (7.1) 9.4 (0.1) (5.8) (0.5) 17.5 (7.1) 9.7 56.9 1.0 (5.1) 4.5 (9.7) 3.1 2,303.3 (1.7) (2.5) 3.6 (5.6) 3.9 (7.2) 6.1 (5.1) (10.4) 0.9 6.2 (0.2) 2.9 0.4 0.1 Dip/Dip Mixes (Shelf Stable) - total Shelf stable (SS) - total Dry dip mixes (DD) - total Fritos (SS)/Frito-Lay North America, Inc.
