HEINEKEN AND 7-UP PARTNER TOGETHER FOR THE SUMMER

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Heineken is bringing back its 360-degree “Cities” program for this summer and joining forces with 7-Up to expand the program’s reach and drive incremental sales of both brands.

The Cities program aims to inspire consumers to break from their usual routines and make the most of their cities whenever they enjoy a Heineken or Heineken Light beer.

This second iteration of the “Open Your City” campaign will once again feature a limited run of city-specific bottles in 14 select markets, including five global cities and nine U.S. cities. Among them are New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Boston, San Francisco and Honolulu.

From Memorial Day through Labor Day, shoppers can scan any limited-edition Heineken City bottle, as well as Heineken Lager, Heineken Dark and Heineken Light bottles, with augmented-reality app Blippar to enter a sweepstakes to win a trip to one of the program’s 14 featured cities. The sweepstakes will also give away daily instant summer rewards.

“Heineken consumers embrace the thrill and endless possibilities of city life,” said Jonathan Simpson, director of commercial marketing at White Plains-based Heineken USA. “As city insiders, they make the most out of every moment, wherever and whenever that may be. Through our Cities program, Heineken is inspiring our consumers to discover and share summer’s unique experiences every time they interact with Heineken. When they choose Heineken, they can bring summer to life anywhere.”

In-store, Heineken and 7-Up will partner on dual-branded display and point-of-sale elements, as well as cross-merchandising offers, to capture shoppers’ attention and encourage a cross-category purchase.

Targeted television advertising in both English and Spanish, along with shopper-targeted digital media such as Ibotta, Brand.net and Blippar, will build awareness and interest while driving shopper traffic to participating retail outlets through relevant content and interactive experiences, Heineken stated.

The 2015 Cities promotion will run through Sept. 30.

TRIBE FIERY SRIRACHA HUMMUS

Two of the hottest food items on grocery shelves came together when Tribe Hummus lifted the lid on its Limited Batch Fiery Sriracha flavor, an explosive blend of the brand’s smooth hummus and popular chili-pepper based sriracha sauce.

Tribe Limited Batch Fiery Sriracha will add fuel to the red-hot hummus category, which is one of the fastest growing areas in grocery stores. Coupled with the fact that hot sauce production, and specifically, sriracha, is also one of the fastest growing industries, the new flavor is expected to be a surefire hit.

“Hummus and sriracha are the perfect combination, not just on the palate, but also in terms of popularity,” said Adam Carr, CEO of Tribe. “Consumers are looking for foods that are not only better for them, but also excite them. Tribe is a leader in creating those uniquely bold blends they seek. And now with Fiery Sriracha, we’re really bringing the heat.”

And if the fiery combination isn’t hot enough, Tribe turns up the temperature by topping the Limited Batch blend with red pepper flakes to increase the heat.

Sriracha is used at breakfast, lunch and dinner and Tribe is hoping consumers use their new fiery flavor just the same. This smooth and spicy blend can be used to add excitement to eggs, sandwiches and even salads. And like all of Tribe’s premium blends, it makes the perfect dip for fresh veggies, crackers, pita bread and salty snacks.

Tribe isn’t the only brand that sees the value in bringing the heat. Rogue Ales has added a sriracha beer to its line-up, UV Vodka introduced sriracha-flavored vodka and Pizza Hut now offers a honey sriracha sauce. Additionally, brands such as Kettle now offer a sriracha version of its chips and Heinz a sriracha ketchup.

The introduction of Tribe’s Fiery Sriracha Hummus is the brand’s latest innovation in terms of unique flavor combinations aimed at expanding the appeal of hummus.

RAPID GROWTH OF KOSHER SUPERMARKETS- GOOD FOR THE JEWS?

FROM KOSHER TODAY

Rapid Growth of Kosher Supermarkets a Good Omen for Shoppers… But is it for the Supermarkets?

Chicago IL – The new Mariano’s kosher superstore in Skokie was hardly open a fortnight when it already set in motion a price war. Reports in Kosher Today about the planned opening of new kosher supermarkets in Lakewood and Baltimore evoked much comment from industry sources but many wondered whether it would set off a new price war which in the end may actually create havoc for the bottom line of many of the stores. One source told KosherToday: “margins are already too small to realize healthy profits and now this would only further hurt the bottom line.” In Chicago, soon after Mariano opened, Jewel-Osco, its major competitor, put rib eye steak on sale for $5.99 a pound, only to be followed by Marianos with a $5.88 a pound sale. Other items were also put on sale as well, setting off what one source called “Chicago’s kosher war.” The trend towards opening these large kosher stores will most definitely impact prices and some believe that it will ultimately force a change in the kosher landscape. “I wouldn’t be surprised that after an explosion of these stores there is ultimately a consolidation in a few years. I am not sure people realize just how much money it takes just to run the infrastructure and inventory in these big supermarkets,” said a kosher manufacturer.

Most of the kosher sources interviewed for this article agreed that on paper there “should be enough business to go around.” What they were referring to was the demographics that clearly point to an Orthodox community that continues to grow, particularly in markets like Monsey and Lakewood. Despite the demographics, many wondered if the customer base would be divided in an equitable manner between the stores.

In the short term, the big winner will be the customer, the sources said, pointing to the increased use of FSI’s and flyers to promote discount items. One victim of this latest trend may turn out to be customer loyalty as shoppers gain many choices on everything from the location of the store to amenities. The stores say that they have seen a decline in the “one stop shopper” who not only divides their loyalty between stores but augments the basket with specials from stores like Target, Wal-Mart and Costco as well as the large supermarket chains.
