PepsiCo Ups Its QSR Innovation Game |
When it comes to innovation, go to the source. And when it comes the task of feeding people, that means to go to the people who provide the beverages.
In other words, PepsiCo Inc. has joined the ranks of companies and brands setting up innovation labs. According to a statement, the beverage behemoth has “announced the launch of PepsiCo Foodservice Digital Lab, a first-of-its-kind suite of capabilities built to connect foodservice operators with the companies, services, insights, and solutions best suited for their specific digital and online needs.”

Innovation labs and technology and business incubators are nothing new, of course, but the rise of eCommerce, omnichannel retail, digital payments and other such efforts has provided fresh fuel and motivation to that trend. In the case of PepsiCo, the company said it plans to make use of “proprietary and syndicated research into restaurant and food ordering interactions” to “teach operators how to identify and deploy technology solutions that benefit their business.”

Corn Nuts is driving sales — and winning millennials — with 'out of the box' Twitter marketing | Marketing Dive
By focusing on amplifying the voices of Corn Nuts' most ardent and surprisingly young fans, Hill, who personally handles the Corn Nuts' Twitter feed from her phone, has grown the account's followers from 650 to 21,000 and has helped to increase repeat purchases from millennials by 12%, according to company figures shared with Marketing Dive.

"It's absolutely translated to sales for us," Imaizumi said of the Twitter strategy.

Corn Nuts also saw sales jump 12% in regular retail stores and 4% in convenience stores across Q4 2018 and Q1 2019, or roughly the period when Hill took over on Twitter. That broke a years-long run of flat or declining sales for the product, according to Imaizumi.

Pepsi Supply Chain Jolt Via Blockchain |
Blockchain is increasingly moving away from its ties to cryptocurrencies, and gaining traction in making supply chains more efficient and transparent. In support of that notion, news came that food and beverage juggernaut PepsiCo has trialed a blockchain project, resulting in a 28 percent gain in efficiency.

As reported by CoinDesk, the trial, “Project Proton,” was set to attack “industry challenges” in programmatic advertising. The company’s partner, media agency Mindshare, said that the trial, focused on supply chain reconciliation, used Zilliqa’s blockchain offering, and leveraged smart contracts to automate part of the supply chain. In addition, the 28 percent efficiency gains were measured in terms of cost per viewable impressions (where businesses pay for ads that are genuine).

Schick maker snags Harry's for almost $1.4B | Retail Dive
Edgewell Personal Care Company, which runs shaving brands Schick, Wilkinson Sword, Edge, Personna and Skintimate, is adding startup Harry's to that portfolio, the company announced on Thursday. Edgewell will combine with Harry's in a cash and stock transaction that values Harry's at $1.37 billion, according to an Edgewell press release. About 79% of that will be paid in cash and 21% in Edgewell common stock, and in the end Harry's shareholders will own about 11% of Edgewell.

Unilever tests voice-powered ads on Spotify | Mobile Marketer
Unilever this month will test ads on audio streaming service Spotify that respond to verbal commands from listeners, Ad Age reported. By saying "Play now" when prompted by an audio commercial from personal care brand Axe, users can access a curated music playlist that includes ads.
Voice-powered ads only work for Spotify users who allow the app to access the microphone of a wireless device. They can change their app settings to disable the feature at any time. Spotify has limited the test to a group of U.S.-based listeners of its free, ad-supported service, according to Variety.
Spotify sees voice-powered controls on mobile devices and smart speakers as a key part of getting its service on more platforms. "We believe voice — really across all platforms — are critical areas of growth, particularly for music and audio content," Daniel Ek, Spotify co-founder and CEO, said this week in its earnings call with analysts.

Why Coca-Colas’s Newest Offerings Look a Lot Like Craft Beer | October
Regardless of whether you’ve been a designated driver, trying to stave off a hangover, or simply abstaining from alcohol altogether, your options in most bars have long remained limited. At best, there might have been a token, tasteless non-alcoholic beer or a sickly, maraschino-topped Shirley Temple on the menu. Chances are high you would have gone to most people’s safe option: quietly ordering a soft drink or a club soda with lime.
“We’d talk to consumers and ask them if that was what they would be drinking in an ideal world and the answer was almost uniformly no,” says Sabrina Tandon, part of Coca-Cola’s Venturing & Emerging Brands (VEB) unit. “The best line I heard was, ‘When I go out, I have a two-drink limit and then I’m done. When I switch, I feel like I’ve left the party. If I could have a choice that felt closer to that alcoholic beverage, I would just feel so much better.’”
Enter BAR NØNE, a line of beverages from Tandon and the team at Coca-Cola designed to loosely approximate drinks like dry hard cider and gingery Moscow Mules. Unlike Coke, Pepsi, or other soft drinks, which can leave you jittery at the end of the night from all the caffeine and corn syrup, these beverages claim to err on the tangy side rather than sweet. They still pack a reasonable dose of cane sugar, but the goal is to be better suited to slowly sipping over the course of an evening in a bar.

Reinventing an American icon
In the halls of Procter & Gamble, they tell the story this way: An Amazon packaging engineer came to town, pointed to P&G’s instantly recognizable orange Tide laundry detergent bottles, and challenged the team to turn the bottle into a box. The box would serve as its own shipping container, with a more concentrated formula and reduced package waste.

The Tide Eco-Box ships in its own container and then transforms into a detergent dispenser.

Tide is one of Procter & Gamble’s oldest and most iconic brands, and has been around virtually since washing machines became mainstream appliances.

Tide evolved its Eco-Box from bottle form, through various prototypes, to the ultimate product sold on It was designed to use less plastic and ship in its own packaging.

Two ways to clean 96 loads of laundry: the plastic Tide packaging commonly seen on store shelves (left) and the new Tide Eco-Box (right). The Eco-Box folds out from its own shipping container and includes “feet” and a twist tap for pouring.
1 / 4
“It's a huge challenge to convert something like the iconic bottle into a totally new format that the consumer has never seen,” said P&G E-Commerce and Innovation Brand Manager Isaac Hellemn. “How do we take this bottle that's full of heavy liquid and transform it into a box?”

The company knew it was the right thing to do, Hellemn acknowledged. After all, that orange bottle is designed to stand out on a crowded store shelf. But in a world where customers increasingly buy products like Tide online, the added packaging used to ship a large plastic bottle just means more waste. Not only that, but since the size or shelf impression of the product being sold online is irrelevant, engineers could re-mix the detergent formula using less water to make the product smaller and more light-weight.

“As a consumer, when I'm unboxing packages and I'm taking out the layers of bubble wrap and the packaging it feels wasteful,” said P&G’s Elizabeth Kinney. “So to design that out of the product and start with something that doesn't require a secondary package and it ships in its own container, that's a huge win for the environment.”

'Hey Alexa, what's the future of voice ordering for groceries?' | Grocery Dive
But food retailers do have an advantage, Reily noted. Unlike other verticals like clothing stores where all products need to be seen before purchasing, much of grocery shopping is replenishment of items like cereal, cat litter, batteries or paper towels. 

“I think simplicity is the easiest way to do it where there’s a lot of repeat purchases of groceries we do on a weekly basis and it’s easy to purchase things like laundry detergent," Carolina Milanesi, consumer tech analyst at Creative Strategies, told Grocery Dive. "It has a clear brand and you don’t have to specify the details of the actual product." 

The problem, she said, is that consumers are creatures of habit. It’s going to take a lot more development from retailers, she said, to iron out the friction-riddled shopping experience of voice ordering.

In 2015, Coca-Cola Co. had taken in a stake in Monster Beverage Corp of almost 17 percent. But Coke is reportedly in arbitration with Monster since its new energy drinks would make it a competitor to Monster and reportedly go against the companies’ agreement in 2015.

At the same time, analysts are viewing the energy drink idea critically. Cowen & Co analyst Vivien Azer noted, “while Coca-Cola certainly has the distribution muscle to push new offerings, we question the fit of an energy drink under the Coca-Cola trademark.”

Why Meal Kits Have Fizzled (a' la Chef'd) |
“The meal kits will be like the beer aisle” one finds in supermarkets, he continued.
And, in a sense, Ransford was right about a lot of that – though probably in ways he didn’t exactly intend to be.
Meal kits are a changing market. The kits are increasingly more likely to find space on grocery store shelves and, as of this week, the playing field for meal kits has been diminished by exactly one player.
Of course, that player happens to be Chef’d, which assumedly Ransford was not counting on when he spoke to Karen Webster for Topic TBD four months ago.
So what happened? To sum it up in five words: It ran out of money.

Amazon Grocery Sales Surge 40 Pct In 2Q |
New data shows that Amazon second-quarter grocery sales came in at $650 million, up 40 percent year over year. The report, released by One Click Retail, also revealed that the eCommerce giant held 18 percent of U.S. online grocery sales since 2017, the largest share of any single retailer. In fact, Amazon’s current share of the online grocery space has now doubled that of its closest competitor.

That growth comes with “nearly every category attracting more and more grocery shoppers to Amazon,” according to report author Jacob Porter, director of One Click’s global marketing.

Beverages comprise most of Amazon’s online grocery sales market, with “cold beverages at $140 million (+36 percent) and coffee at $135 million (+40 percent) in the second quarter. Coffee, in fact, accounted for seven of Amazon’s 10 best-selling grocery items. The Original Donut Shop Regular Medium Roast Coffee (pack of 72 single-serve K-Cup pods)” continued to hold the top spot for the quarter, according to reports.

Is Unilever Stealing Ideas From an Independent London Ice Cream Shop? - Eater London
One of the guys was analysing the ice cream and said, “We need to find out what is in the ice cream base, they keep bringing them up from downstairs”. He then asked a member of staff if they could see the kitchen downstairs!!?! The senior lady in the group made comments like, “tonka bean, that’s a good flavour idea.”
A regular customer noticed that the group’s equipment bore the Unilever logo, and when confronted by Weber they admitted that they worked for the company, and had come to Chin Chin for ‘inspiration’. According to Akbari-Kalhur:

Wendy's promotes summer drinks with self-published romance stories | Mobile Marketer
Wendy's is promoting its summer beverages by publishing romance stories on Wattpad, the social network for authors and readers that reaches 65 million users a month, Adweek reports. Each short story has a theme based on one of the drinks: Berry Cherry Fruit Tea, Strawberry Watermelon Fruit Tea, Honest Tropical Green Tea, Limeade, Strawberry Lemonade and All Natural Lemonade.
Wendy's isn't paying Wattpad to run the campaign, but instead set up a normal profile like any user. For the summer drinks campaign, the burger chain wanted to reach younger women, a demographic group that is very active on Wattpad, Jimmy Bennett, senior director of media and social for Wendy's, told Adweek.
Wendy's is the first brand to set up its own profile on the platform. The company will manage the profile with help from agency VML, whose creative team wrote the text for the romance stories.

Ben and Jerry’s serves up a scoop of sustainability with blockchain ‘carbon credits’
Ben and Jerry’s, a company committed to cooling down global warming one scoop of Cherry Garcia at a time, has found a new way to achieve its carbon emissions mission: Blockchain.
The ice cream company is the first major retailer to partner with one of the several businesses attempting to create a carbon-credit system using blockchain tokens.
Carbon credits for consumers, not just companies
Ben and Jerry’s partnered with a company called Poseidon to build carbon credits into every scoop of ice cream purchased — a departure from existing carbon credit models that are accessible only to big business.
Carbon credits (certificates of sustainability that incentivize carbon emission reduction by creating a market for carbon offsets) are usually only sold in massive quantities to companies — but now blockchain-based “micro-transactions” make the same system possible for individuals.

Alibaba Now Product Designer, as Well as Seller, for Brands |
Got milk? Because you might need it to put out the fire in your mouth after biting into a certain Snickers bar designed exclusively for China.
Capitalizing on the growing popularity of mala, the Chinese word for “numbing and spicy,” the world’s biggest confection maker, Mars Inc., last year teamed up with Alibaba Group to create a chili-infused Snickers bar that aims to satisfy Chinese consumers’ hunger—and their craving for a tongue-tingling treat.
The collaboration involved the integration of analytics from Mars’ consumer research, the 500 million-plus users of Alibaba’s online marketplaces and a customer survey aimed at finding a new flavor to bring to the market. The result showed that not only did Chinese consumers love spicy food, but that they were willing try chocolate with an extra kick to it, too.

Taking the things people are familiar with but into chocolate, so it could be a cake, a tart, a drink.

“We are bringing back the tea and biscuit truffle, which is a milky Yorkshire Tea ganache with biscuit coating. So lots of comforting, familiar things and lots of nostalgia. Nostalgia sells chocolate.”

How Hershey's Reached Consumers With Mobile Ads |
Hershey started its campaign by first looking for consumers that might actually be in the market for jerky. By using inMarket’s Preceptivity, Hershey was able to predict when shoppers were “due” for their next store visit. And, by using that knowledge, Hershey was able to show consumers ads for KRAVE through their mobile devices and desktop computers in the hours leading up to their grocery trips.
“Preceptivity is effective because it eliminates wasted impressions on shoppers who have perhaps just shopped or aren’t in ‘shopping mode,’” Blaisdell said.
Once consumers reach the store, Hershey reached shoppers with mobile ads just as they walked into a store. And, once shoppers hit the aisles, Hershey was able to show mobile ads to consumers that picked up a package of KRAVE, enabling them “to connect with shoppers who were physically holding KRAVE inside a store,” Blaisdell said.

AI helps Caesars, a casino and hotel group, guess customers’ likely spending and offer personalised promotions to draw them in. Bloomberg, a media and financial-information firm, uses AI to scan companies’ earnings releases and automatically generate news articles. Vodafone, a mobile operator, can predict problems with its network and with users’ devices before they arise. Companies in every industry use AI to monitor cyber-security threats and other risks, such as disgruntled employees.

Speaking to Marketing Week, Pritchard said: “The next frontier with the big players is going to be getting a consumer signal that helps us make sure that investment actually results in a sale and that it doesn’t add excess frequency.
“I want to know if I reach you, and I don’t need to know it’s you specifically, but I need to know it’s a person and that I don’t reach that person 10 other times. And that if I reach you that it actually leads to a sale.”

Sold in most local supermarkets and widely available from vending machines, “Chu-Hi’ is an amalgamation of the words “highball” (a mixed drink) and “Shochu,” (a spirit distilled from rice barley, sweet potatoes and other ingredients).  Chu-Hi alcoholic content ranges between 3-9% proof (which saves producers from paying the higher taxation given to stronger drinks).

brandchannel: Unilever and Blockchain: Q&A With Babs Rangaiah, IBM iX
We expect blockchain to be able to provide a single source of truth to any given media buy. Currently advertisers, their agencies and the publishers buy ad inventory and incur significant costs with data reconciliation activities. These are due to the sheer number of middle-men as well, as the highly manual approach and number of data sources. This creates complexity, disputes and a feeling of distrust among the network.
Blockchain can help restore confidence in digital ad buying by providing greater transparency for advertisers, making it clear which players are involved in each transaction and how to more seamlessly reconcile data and financials. The solution will keep an immutable record of how media is purchased, delivered and how target audiences interact with the ad in order to provide reliable measurement metrics.

Using IBM Blockchain and designed by IBM iX, the solution will start with basic financial solutions for digital media buying and will lay the foundation for solving multiple problems across the ecosystem.

Oreo snacks on AR in new mobile scavenger hunt | Mobile Marketer
Mondelez International's Oreo brand introduced a mobile scavenger hunt that uses augmented reality (AR), along with a TV commercial and four videos for social media, according to Digiday. "The Great Oreo Cookie Quest" gives players clues on where to find hidden virtual cookies in everyday objects, then uses image-recognition technology to confirm the player found the digital Oreo overlaid on the real world via a smartphone. For example, clues like "What puts hands on your wrist?" signal users to point their phone camera at a wristwatch to reveal an Oreo cookie that's only visible on the screen.
Players can accrue points for each cookie found, compare their scores to friends on Facebook or Twitter and enter a sweepstakes to win a trip to Africa or Google's headquarters in California, as the game is part of the cookie brand's partnership with Google that began in August 2017, per Digiday. Other Google-themed prizes in the game include Google play points or Pixel phones.
