Boulder Brands Debuts New Products, New Vision at Expo West
Boulder Brands Family of Companies Demonstrates New Capabilities, Innovative
Strategies for Natural Foods Industry
DENVER, March 7, 2013
DENVER, March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Boulder Brands, a leading
health-and-wellness company comprised of natural brands that address specific
consumer health needs, will debut a total of 20 new products at the 2013
Natural Products Expo West, March 7 - 10 in Anaheim, California. The launch of
these new items is a reflection of Boulder Brands' unique vision to change the
way we eat through social community engagement, strong retailer collaboration
and innovation ahead of consumer needs.
Through each of its brands, Boulder Brands addresses specific dietary needs,
including gluten-free (Udi's Gluten Free Foods and Glutino), plant-based
(Earth Balance), heart health (Smart Balance) and weight management (Best
Life). Each of these categories is well positioned for growth. People
following gluten-free or plant-based diets alone make up an estimated 30
percent of the American population.
"What we do differently, is listen to consumers in real-time, share insights
across our diverse brands and learn from our retail partners to shape what's
possible for healthy lifestyles," said Steve Hughes, CEO of Boulder Brands.
One redefining innovation released at Expo West will be compact packaging for
Earth Balance Buttery Spread, which now maximizes shelf and warehouse space in
the highly competitive refrigerated cases. By creating a space-saver
rectangular tub, products can be stacked more efficiently, resulting in up to
60 percent better warehouse storage. Most importantly, retailers and consumers
alike can now enjoy more product diversity with 50 percent more retail shelf
In addition, the company maintains a direct connection to consumers through
strong social media channels, reaching a combined 1.4 million people on
Facebook alone. All Boulder Brands companies manage strong communities online
to ask questions, listen for opportunities and gain insight on consumer
preferences. Boulder Brands combines these findings with research, sales data
and other results to create choices consumers may not have imagined even a few
The new products launched at Natural Products Expo West include items never
before seen in certain categories, including gluten free pita chips from
Udi's, gluten free toaster pastries from Glutino and vegan-friendly Aged White
Cheddar Flavor Puffs from Earth Balance.
