GOURMET NEWS www.gourmetnews.com n JANUARY 2016 n GOURMET NEWS 1 2 6 Bauli Unveils Launch of New Miniature Seasonal Cakes Bauli, the leading creator of authentic Italian holiday cakes and pastries, is proud to an- nounce the launch of its newest seasonal cakes, mini Panettone and Pandoro, available at retailers nationwide. Bauli has been part of Italian family tradi- tions since 1922 as a beloved brand that of- fers high-quality Panettone, Pandoro, specialty cakes and croissants for both holi- days and year-round pastry lovers. As the confectionery leader in Italy for over 90 years, Bauli brings authenticity and tradition to family and friends gathered around the dinner (or dessert) table, with sales in more than 70 countries on five con- tinents. Bauli's core holiday products in- clude Il Panettone di Milano, the traditional and most famous Italian Christmas bread, loaded with candied citron, lemon zest and raisins and Il Pandoro di Verona, Pan d'Oro or Golden Bread, a traditional Christmas bread from Verona that's baked in a special star-shape mold, sprinkled with confection- ers' sugar and made with real eggs, which gives it the beautiful golden color. This hol- iday season, Bauli's introduction of the miniature versions of the iconic Panettone and Pandoro offer consumers a modern twist on holiday classics. Capitalizing on the mini trend that has been embraced by both the snack industry and consumers alike, the one- of-a-kind Mini Panettone and Mini Pandoro are produced in exactly the same authentic fashion as its larger products, and with all of the same natural ingredients. "We at Bauli are thrilled to cele- brate another holiday season with our customers, and are excited to be able to share the new Mini Panet- tone and Pandoro as part of the cel- ebrations," said Luca Nava, General Manager of Bauli USA Inc. With respect for traditions and ancient recipes, Bauli products, including the new mini products, are oven baked and made with no preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors and no genetically modified ingredi- ents and are Kosher certified. Each confec- tionery treat is naturally leavened, a process which removes the need to use chemical ad- ditives and preservatives and guarantees a long life to confectioneries, and left to rise in the same way bread has been made for over 5,000 years. About Bauli Bauli is the creator of authentic, Italian confectionary goods associated with shared moments of sweetness and pleasure, joy and tradition. With sales in over 60 countries on five continents, the Bauli family business maintains the same dedication to excellence that started almost 80 years ago.

GN: What are the keys to Mooney Farms' success? MM: Our family pioneered the sun dried tomato industry over 25 years ago and we continue to create new items which fit today's trend of healthy eating. Our loyal and new customers are part of our success, and we focus on their ever-changing needs. Mooney Farms has never compromised quality or flavor. We decided to produce a delicious product with the highest quality in- gredients, including 100 percent pure olive oil and 100 percent sun dried tomatoes. Our customers know that every item they pur- chase will meet their expectations because we have never changed our recipes in over 25 years. There is only one original Califor- nia sun dried tomato brand, and that is Bella Sun Luci. Always fresh, always premium – our family guarantees it. GN: What are Mooney Farms' core business and principal activities? MM: After more than 25 years, we are still family-owned and operated and involved in every stage of production. This includes sun drying the tomato, processing and bottling the products, then shipping them out our door. Our 100,000 square foot processing facil- ity is dedicated exclusively to our sun dried tomato line. Unlike many brands that are co- packed, we are vertically in- tegrated, allowing for a lower cost which we can pass on to the consumer. Since we focus on one core item, our economy of scale allows us to use higher qual- ity ingredients. We also stay on the cutting edge of prod- uct development and introduce new innova- tive products that are not currently offered by anyone else. For example, our seven- bagged items are one-of-a-kind and offer the customer an exciting and healthy option for both snacking and cooking. GN: What are Mooney Farms' competitive strengths? MM: At Mooney Farms, we recognize great brands don't just happen. They are built on many years of hard work and consumer edu- cation. Our company has become social media driven in order to keep up with today's market trends and con- sumer demands. As the largest producer of sun dried tomatoes, we under- stand that we must keep the consumer informed and up to date on all infor- mation regarding sun-dried tomatoes. Keeping consumers up to date means updat- ing and adding new information to our com- pany website, daily postings on Facebook, utilizing Pinterest and also posting to Insta- gram. With over 35,000 social media fans, we can educate the public about ways to use sun dried tomatoes, the health benefits and the Mediterranean Diet, among other important topics. This constant and direct contact with our consumers keeps us ahead of the compe- tition and ensures higher sales of Bella Sun Luci Sun Dried Tomato products.

Robert Rothschild Farm Refreshes Brand Robert Rothschild Farm is debuting its new, clean and more modern packaging across the portfolio at this year's Winter Fancy Food Show. The brand began its refresh starting where it mattered most, by talking with consumers about the way they think about meal preparation, how they cook, what inspires them to try new products, as well as their opinions on design and how it appeals to them. With consumers' input, Robert Roth- schild co-created the refreshed designs that helped match the experience with the pack- aging to the unparalleled taste and quality of the products inside. "We wanted to start with the consumers first to understand their wants and needs," stated Andrew Deister, the Chief Executive Officer of Robert Rothschild Farm. About Robert Rothschild Farm Quality foods really do look, feel and taste differ- ent. Robert Rothschild Farm has spent over 30 years studying, re- fining and perfecting the way it makes its insanely flavorful, truly exceptional prod- ucts. Each one is made from scratch and guaranteed to make even the everyday taste like gourmet. When Bob and Sara Rothschild decided to move from California to Ohio's Mad River Valley in the 1970s, they knew they wanted to work the land. Their determined spirit resulted in a suc- cessful 170-acre farm, and more red raspberries than they knew what to do with. That one simple ingredient soon led to an entire line of au- thentic products made from original recipes using time-honored techniques. Each and every intensely flavorful item was made from scratch, and cooked slowly over low heat in small-batch kettles to perfection.

Organics from Stonewall Kitchen If Stonewall Kitchen's history teaches cus- tomers anything, it's that there will always be something new and delicious to sample. Case in point – Stonewall Kitchen is now certified organic and has added four fantastic new organic jams to its 2016 product line- up: two sweet and two savory. Each one is a unique and tasty combination of flavors with a wholesome quality that customers every- where will love. The Organic Maple Apple Onion Jam has distinct layers of flavor cre- ated by a wonderful array of ingredients that include sweet maple syrup, Granny Smith apples, onions and spices. It's a versatile and savory jam that goes great with cheese, on crackers or in recipes. The Organic Straw- berry Vanilla Jam is made with sweet, ripe and organically grown strawberries and vanilla and is a delicious blend of flavors that's reminiscent of fresh strawberries and cream. It has a delectable sweetness that's a natural for breakfast breads, in hot cereal or in desserts. Next is the Organic Sweet Chili Jam, a distinctive jam that jumps out with an initial bold flavor produced from ripe jalapenos, savory red bell peppers and a few tasty spices, but then eases up to allow the sweetness of the pure cane sugar to come through. The result is a delicious jam that's not too hot, not too sweet and a real treat on crackers, with cheese or used as a pan sauce. Last but certainly not least is the luscious Or- ganic Wild Maine Blueberry Cherry Jam. Loaded with ripe, sweet and truly compatible flavors of organic cherries and wild Maine blueberries, this jam boasts that delicious, farm-stand-fresh fla- vor that will bring life to everyday breakfast breads, hot cereal and peanut butter and jelly sand- wiches. Together, these four delicious or- ganic jams are a smart and tasty entry into the organic category that will certainly sat- isfy customers who shop organic and those looking to try more organic options.
