"He added, "In 2007 Greek yogurt made up 0.2 percent of the yogurt market in the U.S. it now accounts for 50 percent and Chobani controls half of that market share. We like our prospects"

According to Euromonitor International and a study conducted by Jared Koerten, U.S. Research Analyst, "The State of the Pasta Industry: Global Trends and Prospects" World Pasta Day 2012; "Healthy pasta is the fastest growing category within the pasta category and forecast to be the clear driver of growth in the future."

* In 2012, sales of healthy pasta were twice as large as in 2006 and have more than tripled since 2003.
* $3B in global sales for healthy pasta in 2012.
* 11 percent of total pasta sales in 2012 were in the healthy pasta category.

"We are excited by the ever increasing market opportunity and overwhelming demand for our products. We will continue to focus on staying true to our brand as cutting edge culinary innovators all while expanding DeCio's availability to the consumer. At the end of the day, it's about passion for the pasta," said Morison.

Legal Moonshiner Makes Moonshine World History in ‘Dry’ Marshall County Kentucky

Author: Silver Trail Distillery Inc.
Dateline: Hardin, Kentucky (HARDIN, Ky.)  | Wed, 14 Aug 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Newcomer spirits maker Silver Trail Distillery, of Hardin, Kentucky, had repeated its 2012 Gold Medal for its classic LBL '1950's Style' Moonshine in 100 proof at the World Spirits Competition 'Spirits International Prestige' (SIP Awards). Besides the 2013 Gold for the 100 proof, the company won Gold in the flavored whiskey category with its apple pie flavored Moonshine - LBL Apple Sin.”



ARTICLE:

Newcomer spirits maker Silver Trail Distillery, of Hardin, Kentucky, had repeated its 2012 Gold Medal for its classic LBL '1950's Style' Moonshine in 100 proof at the World Spirits Competition "Spirits International Prestige" (SIP Awards). Besides the 2013 Gold for the 100 proof, the company won Gold in the flavored whiskey category with its apple pie flavored Moonshine - LBL Apple Sin.

The company also garnered a Bronze Medal in the bottle design category with its "ring-handle jug" and "torn" look labels.

Silver Trail Distillery founder and master distiller Spencer Balentine summed the wins up: "All I wanted to do was see if I could make our family recipe Moonshine like I remember my Dad hauling, drinking and making on a square still designed by Mom's uncle. Whether the Moonshine tasted bad or great the main goal was to be 1950's authentic. The Gold Awards tell me - the family had it right."

After last years SIP Award Gold medal win, Balentine was inducted into the 130 year old Kentucky Distillers Association as one of the 12 Master Distillers of Kentucky and has since helped found "The Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour" which spans the state with its six members.

Magilla Entertainment brought Balentine's Dad's "Last Run" story to The Discovery Channel hit TV show "Moonshiners" in the season two episode "Moonshine Treasure Hunt" which brought the state's largest liquor distributor Republic National Distributor to distribute the LBL brand throughout Kentucky. The wins and TV show have made Silver Trail the most famous pole barn in the United States and a major tourist destination for Western Kentucky.

As Balentine is quoted on the SIP Awards website: "Winning SIP Gold has opened some mighty big doors." He recently added "It's just sad that my home county is dry and can't take advantage of the brand's overnight success."

About Silver Trail Distillery Inc.:

The company grew out of founder's Spencer Balentine's 1958 childhood memory of riding in his Dad's Moonshine car and hearing the 150 single gallon glass jugs "THUNKING" beneath his feet when his Dad stopped short. The Silver Trail name came from the Moonshine mother road from LBL into Clarksville Tn. The LBL brand is a Kentucky Moonshine history lesson hand prepared from grain to glass.

Alegria Farm announced today it has partnered with Orange County Produce, LLC, to offer a locally grown, certified organic, freshly harvested summer vegetable box. Delivering on its promise to offer the freshest produce available, Alegria Fresh's vegetable box is delivered within 24 hours of harvest and can be customized to suit individual tastes.

Orange County Produce, LLC, is managed by third-generation family members A.G. and Matthew Kawamura, farming over 800 acres within the urban boundaries of Orange County.

"Our family has been growing fruits and vegetables in Orange County for 57 years," said A.G. Kawamura, Founding Member, Orange County Produce, LLC and former California Secretary of Agriculture. "We are committed to continuing a tradition of farming in Orange County and providing the residents of Orange County with an incredibly fresh and high-quality product. We believe that local production of fruits and vegetables is a viable and important part of this county's future."

Alegria Fresh offer its subscribers and local chefs an array of seasonal vegetables including organic green beans, cranberry beans, yellow squash and green zucchini, cucumbers, red and golden beets, purple carrots, radishes, strawberries, blue, red and curly kale, green bell peppers and more, all grown in Orange County.

"A.G. and his brother have made tremendous strides toward improving nutritional content in the organic produce they offer in our local community," said Erik Cutter, Managing Director of Alegria Fresh. "They care about health and are meticulous farmers with great integrity and we are proud to partner with them to educate the public about the benefits of consuming fresh, locally grown produce. We are working together to create greater efficiencies by reducing waste and pushing new technologies to improve urban farming processes to meet the great challenges facing our food production and distribution systems."

The 12 pound plus box of vegetables is $35 including delivery within Laguna Beach city limits. Those outside of Laguna Beach can arrange for pick up.

"It doesn't get any fresher arriving from farm-to-table in a day," said Cutter. "Our new partnership allows us to create greater access to clean, fresh, certified organic produce containing the highest possible nutrition per calorie. Our discriminating clients can taste the difference and understand why super fresh is important to their health."

Through hydroponic vertical farming, Alegria Farm grows leafy greens, medicinal herbs and vegetables up to seven times more nutrient rich as anything found in the local supermarkets while using no soil, 90 percent less water, 70 percent less land and 50 percent less fertilizer. On special order, subscribers can receive these greens and medicinal herbs delivered to their door within two hours of harvest.

In addition to vegetables and greens, Alegria Fresh also offers sunflower sprouts and other microgreens such as fenugreek and pea shoots. Sprouted seeds are nature's most complete and nutrient-dense food, and Alegria Fresh delivers them within an hour of their harvest to retain their full flavor and nutrient load.

Multi-Flow Industries Announces Acquisition of Columbus, Ohio, Distributor

Author: Multi-Flow Industries
Dateline: Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania (HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa.)  | Mon, 03 Jun 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Multi-Flow Industries today announced that it has completed the acquisition of one of the largest Independent Fountain-Dispensed Beverage Distributors in Ohio. This acquisition affords Multi-Flow Industries the distribution opportunity to directly service customers in Central Ohio, building upon their current distribution in Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky.”



A R T I C L E:

Multi-Flow Industries today announced that it has completed the acquisition of one of the largest Independent Fountain-Dispensed Beverage Distributors in Ohio. This acquisition affords Multi-Flow Industries the distribution opportunity to directly service customers in Central Ohio, building upon their current distribution in Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky.

CEO Mark Stephens said, "This acquisition affords our company to literally service half of the geography of the great State of Ohio - an area already very near and dear to our interest and our hearts."

The acquired distributor, Multi-Flow of Columbus, had been independently owned and operated by Jeff and JoAnne Crair for over 39 years. In 1975, Jeff Crair took mentorship from Sam Gottlieb, the founder of Multi-Flow Industries. Crair chose Columbus, Ohio, to launch his operation. He cultivated his business with his first customer in 1975, and eventually built an expansive customer following, using Multi-Flow Industries as his primary supplier.

Jeff Crair said that, "Although this wasn't an easy decision, we have chosen to move on to the second phase of our lives-retirement."

The current Columbus customers will enjoy the same quality beverages that they have purchased in the past. Stephens reiterated that Columbus will see very few changes initially, giving credit to the management team in Central Ohio.

Multi-Flow Industry Director of Retail Sales, Dennis Nahill, said that the Company is in no way associated with Multi-Flow Ohio or Buckeye Beverages, which is head-quartered in Cleveland, Ohio. "It sounds complicated," Nahill said, "but Multi-Flow Industries is now the only company distributing Multi-Flow branded products in Central and Southern Ohio."

About Multi-Flow Industries:

Multi-Flow Industries, based in Huntingdon Valley, PA, produces branded and private label concentrated Iced Teas, Juices, Carbonated Soft Drinks, Energy Drinks and Fortified Functional water in Bag-in-the-Box packages. In addition to the recent "Excellent" rating from Silliker, Multi-Flow Industries has been an OSHA VPP Star Site since 2005. Nearly half of Multi-Flow Industries' revenue is derived from private label partnerships with convenience store chains, foodservice operators, and branded bottle and can manufacturers. The balance of Multi-Flow Industries' revenue is generated from DSD route delivery sales out of their 12 warehouses along the East Coast, from New York to the Florida Keys. The company was established in 1937.

More information on Multi-Flow can be found on the company website at http://www.multiflow.net/ .

USA Coffee Company: Environmentally-Friendly Coffee

Author: USA Coffee Company
Dateline: Plantation, Florida (PLANTATION, Fla.)  | Mon, 01 Apr 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Earth Day is April 22 and USA Coffee Company is doing its part to save the planet. Florida-based USA Coffee Company is proud of its efforts to produce conventional certified Hawaiian coffee that is environmentally friendly.”



A R T I C L E:

Earth Day is April 22 and USA Coffee Company is doing its part to save the planet. Florida-based USA Coffee Company is proud of its efforts to produce conventional certified Hawaiian coffee that is environmentally friendly.

"We have developed farming practices that return the harvesting and processing byproducts back into the soil to control weeds, and to replenish the soil's nutrients," Ted Massinello, president of USA Coffee Company, says. "We also recycle the coffee wash water and the green waste from pruning. All branches and twigs are mulched and recycled year after year; nothing goes into landfills."

Massinello says that it will continue to farm its specialty coffee by recycling by-products that are biodegradable.

Additionally, USA Coffee Company has recently introduced the reusable and eco-friendly coffee filter, Ekobrew, for Keurig single-serve brewers. It's made in the USA and BPA free. It's also compatible with the Cuisinart, Breville and Mr. Coffee single-cup machines.

And, because the Ekobrew is reusable, there is no disposable plastic and foil cup to end up in a land fill. This year alone, more than five billion K-cup packs filled with imported coffee will be sold, used and then discarded.

"So, make coffee, not trash," Massinello says.

The Ekobrew has a financial advantage as well. Coffee drinkers who use the Ekobrew with USA Coffee can expect to save 70 percent or more because there is no need to purchase the K cups. It's a $0.20 average cost per cup versus $0.70.

It's pretty too. Ekobrew's durable and attractive design has won high praise from critics making it a finalist for the 2012 Housewares Design Award presented by HomeWorld Business.

About USA Coffee Company:

USA Coffee Company was established to only roast coffee grown in the USA. 100 percent of its coffee hails from Hawaii. All coffee accessories such as mugs and filters are also made in the USA. Signature coffees include: All American Union Roast; All American Classic; Maui Morning Mojo; and more.

A R T I C L E:

Adherents of the "shop local" movement are becoming more discriminating. Cleveland's consumers are no exception, and they are driving demand for their local retailers to carry Vivesan™ and Vivebloom™ cleaning products. Waterstone Ventures LLP, the makers of the 100 percent carcinogen-free products, announced today that their cleaners will be sold in over 20 Ohio grocery stores. These all-natural cleaners are available in Whole Foods Market (University Heights), Constantino's, Heinen's, and Nature's Bin stores.

All products are carcinogen-free, odor-free, natural, and 99.9 percent plant-based. The Vivesan line includes a streak-free Glass Cleaner, Laundry Soap for cold water, and a low-suds Carpet Cleaner that can be used in extraction machines. The Global Cleaner - intended for use for everything from toys to dirty pots - removes grease, grime, dirt, and buildup.

"Our customers are very aware of what they consume, and that's why products like Vivesan cleaners are a good fit for our shoppers. They want products that contain ingredients they recognize," said Michael Bishara, Grocery Team Leader at Whole Foods Market of University Heights, Ohio. "However, shoppers care about effectiveness, too, and that's what's appealing about these cleaners. Now, they don't have to trade potency for safety," he added. "The short distance these products travel is a plus, because they're made right here in Cleveland, and that's a smaller carbon footprint."

Other Vivesan™ formulas are available for Marine, Automotive, and Equine Care applications. The Vivebloom™ Produce Wash, a food-safe surfactant, is a liquid spray that removes undesirable residues, wax, pesticides, and dirt from fruits and vegetables. Custom formulations can also be created for retailers' specific requirements. These proprietary blends are designed to be as effective as traditional cleaners - without toxic chemicals.

All are derived from a proprietary blend of processed extracts of coconut, corn, grains, sugar cane, and tree sap, using ingredients that are produced and grown in the United States. Most Vivesan™ and Vivebloom™ consumer products are sold in quarts, and gallon units for dilution are sold for commercial use. Prices range from between US$8 for 32oz to $35 per super-concentrated gallon.

About Vivesan:

Vivesan carcinogen-free cleaners are 100 percent plant-based, highly-effective formulas for commercial, industrial, and consumer use. Vivesan products are distributed by Waterstone Ventures LLP, based in Burton, Ohio. More information: http://www.Vivesan.com/ .

Buy American: USA Coffee Company Launches Custom Label Program

Author: USA Coffee Company
Dateline: Plantation, Florida (PLANTATION, Fla., )  | Tue, 12 Mar 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Buying American is a trend that is here to stay and USA Coffee Company stands behind the sentiment one hundred percent. All of its coffee is 100 percent Hawaiian-grown and now it's excited to offer a new custom label program: Our coffee, your custom labels.”



A R T I C L E:

Buying American is a trend that is here to stay and USA Coffee Company stands behind the sentiment one hundred percent. All of its coffee is 100 percent Hawaiian-grown and now it's excited to offer a new custom label program: Our coffee, your custom labels.

"We started offering this service not too long ago and it has really taken off," Ted Massinello, president of USA Coffee Company, says. "We provide custom label coffee to unions, a variety of businesses including banks and casinos as well as for special events such as weddings and bar mitzvahs (coffee is kosher certified). It's a great way to show your commitment to buying American while providing a token of appreciation to a customer or friend."

In addition to offering custom label coffee as a promotional or thank you item, companies may also choose to brand their company through the custom label program and sell the coffee. If they choose to go this route, they have the option to donate a percentage of sales to a favorite charity. It's a win-win for all.

For example, the well-known talk radio host and TV personality, Ed Schultz of the Ed Schultz Show, sells a custom label called, "Big Eddie's Hawaiian Coffee." For each sale, a $3 donation is made to the Relief Society for one of the four Armed Forces Services.

Massinello adds that what further sets USA Coffee Company apart from other coffee companies is that its coffee is absolutely 100 percent grown in the U.S. He warns that coffee lovers should beware of coffee labeling that says either "Kona or Hawaiian Blend." In most cases, this means that there are no more than 15 percent of actual Hawaiian beans in the coffee. The blends sold at USA Coffee Company are 100 percent Hawaiian-grown and come from three different islands - the Kona district on the main island of Hawaii, Maui and Kauai.

USA Coffee Company is also proud of its efforts to produce conventional certified Hawaiian coffee that is environmentally friendly.

"We have developed farming practices that return the harvesting and processing byproducts back into the soil to control weeds, and to replenish the soil's nutrients," Massinello says. "We also recycle the coffee wash water and the green waste from pruning. All branches and twigs are mulched and recycled year after year; nothing goes into landfills."

The Traveling Vineyard Joins Forces with Award-Winning Food Bloggers

Author: The Traveling Vineyard
Dateline: Ipswich, Massachusetts (IPSWICH, Mass.)  | Fri, 25 Jan 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “The Traveling Vineyard, which offers home-based business opportunities for local wine tastings, has unveiled a new Food and Wine Pairings section of their website complete with detailed explanations for why certain dishes marry with particular Traveling Vineyard wines and links to cooking instructions.”



A R T I C L E:

The Traveling Vineyard, which offers home-based business opportunities for local wine tastings, has unveiled a new Food and Wine Pairings section of their website complete with detailed explanations for why certain dishes marry with particular Traveling Vineyard wines and links to cooking instructions.

The new web content is the result of several unique relationships with award-winning food bloggers from across the U.S. as well as Indonesia and Italy.

Several food bloggers have been winners in SAVEUR magazine's Annual Best Food Blog contest and have been featured in the popular food and wine publications of The Harvard Common Press, one of the nation's leading publishers of high-quality cookbooks.

The new food and wine web pages include mouth-watering recommendations for your dining table, engaging photography, and light-hearted commentary. Each exclusive Traveling Vineyard wine is paired with multiple recipes. In turn, each recipe provides recommendations for multiple Traveling Vineyard selections that work with the recipe. The website will be regularly updated with fresh food and wine content as more experts join forces with The Traveling Vineyard.

Rick Libby, Traveling Vineyard's Chief Grape Stomper and Head Cheerleader stated, "One of our main missions is to take the intimidation out of wine. This enhancement to our website brings fun, useful food pairings and wine education to our wine-loving audience. After attending one of our in-home wine-tasting events or receiving our wine as a gift, customers can return to our website for wine information that will enhance their wine-drinking pleasure.

"This wine content also capitalizes on the growing segment of food media. It is particularly relevant with the increasing popularity of Pinterest, as so much of the food and wine experience is visual. Visitors can browse our online cellar, comment on both food and wine suggestions and share their interest with friends on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. It allows us to have helpful dialogue with our wine lovers."

Rick remarks, "Our wines end up in the hands of many wine lovers beyond those that attend our in-home wine tasting events. This is an opportunity for us to reach those wine lovers with value-added wine knowledge to deepen their enjoyment of our wines. Our food and wine pairing content provides much more than what you see on the back of a wine label. It helps consumers better understand the interaction between food and wine."

Alegria Fresh is hosting its first class in a series entitled "Healing Foods," to teach people how to select nutrition-rich food and prepare them in unique and sumptuous ways.

"Many people know what foods heal the body, but are challenged to prepare them in great tasting ways free of the ingredients that cause disease," said Erik Cutter, managing director of Alegria Fresh. "Participants will discover the secrets to preparing fabulous cuisine free of inflammatory ingredients such as dairy, oils, salt, sugar, grain and animal protein."

Classes will be offered every other Sunday at 3 p.m., starting on Jan 27. The class, which lasts 2 hours, is $50 per person, with a limit of 8 per class. Yolande Smith and Jessica McLeish, local raw food chefs and nutrition experts, will facilitate the class.

"There are endless ways to prepare healing foods, which prevent and reverse chronic diseases while detoxifying the body," said Yolande Smith, natural foods chef. "With our simple recipes, anyone can enjoy delicious food and increase energy for optimum performance every day."

Class menus have been designed using locally grown, plant-based healing foods, including fresh-picked produce from Alegria Farm, Laguna Beach's only hydroponic vertical farm growing leafy greens and medicinal herbs. Each class will feature up to three dishes, including decadent healthy desserts, fully demonstrated so participants will be able to reproduce the results at home.

About Alegria Farm:

Alegria Farm is a new commercial hydroponic vertical farm employing over 120 hydroponic towers growing over 8,000 plants in less than 1/20th acre. Alegria Farm is Orange County's first hydroponic vertical farm and the first West Coast showcase for the Verti-Gro(R) system, which uses no soil, 90 percent less water, 70 percent less land, 50 percent less fertilizer than traditional organic farming and zero toxic pesticides. This high performance growing system produces clean, natural food faster than traditional farming and allows plants to grow bigger and stronger, making plants naturally pest resistant.

Alegria Farm produces an exotic tasting variety of leafy greens, medicinal herbs and heirloom vegetables. Hydroponic farming is soilless and utilizes coconut fiber instead of organic soil, which virtually eliminates toxic pesticide usage to produce stronger plants that are substantially more nutrient-rich.

Alegria Farm is the high-performance urban agriculture division of EnviroIngenuity. Produce from the farm is sold under the Alegria Fresh tradename.
