Chocolate Industry – Vegan Light Chocolate Nowhey Sun, 23 Jan 2022 10:50:53 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Chocolate Industry – Vegan Light Chocolate Nowhey 32 32 Biscuit Belly will bring Southern breakfast and brunch brand to Hoover Sun, 23 Jan 2022 10:50:53 +0000

Hoover is set to acquire a new breakfast and brunch restaurant that will introduce the Birmingham metropolitan area to a new brand.

Power Brands Hospitality Group plans to open a franchise of Biscuit Belly, a Kentucky-based breakfast and brunch restaurant, in The Village at Brock’s Gap this spring.

As of mid-January, there were three Biscuit Belly locations in Louisville and one in Evansville, Indiana, but the company has signed franchise agreements for at least 20 other locations in states including Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. , said Andrew Adams, a Hoover. resident who will operate the Hoover location with his wife, Rachel.

Biscuit Belly focuses on Southern-style breakfasts and includes most staples such as eggs, bacon, sausages, hash browns, French toast, pancakes, fresh fruit and, well, of course, cookies. The restaurant offers at least a dozen kinds of cookie sandwiches, including:

► The Rockwell, a buttermilk fried chicken breast biscuit, cheddar and goetta sauce

► Brisket cookie, with homemade smoked breast, white Alabama barbecue sauce, caramelized onions and crunchy coleslaw

► Edgy Veggie, with fried green tomatoes, mushroom sauce, cheddar and a too easy egg

► S’mores Biscuit, an open cookie with toasted marshmallows, graham cracker crumbs and chocolate sauce

► The Boozy Bird, with buttermilk fried chicken breast covered in bourbon maple syrup

There are four different types of sauce, including mushroom sauce, hot brown sauce, goetta sausage sauce and chocolate sauce, Adams said. Drinks on offer include milk, tea, coffee, lattes, cappuccinos, mochas and a range of breakfast cocktails, if liquor license is approved.

Adams said he and his wife thought Hoover could really use a “southern home breakfast spot that offers quality food and a cool experience.”

They are both from Blount County, graduating from JB Pennington High School in 2008 and then the University of Alabama in 2014.

They both got a taste of the restaurant business while in college. Andrew worked at the Cypress Inn restaurant in Tuscaloosa, starting as a server and working his way up to dining and catering manager, and Rachel worked as a cashier at the 15th Street Diner.

After graduating from college, they worked five years for Wells Fargo in the financial industry, but left there to open their own business, a Makers DIY site, in Vestavia Hills in August 2019. They sold that business in May 2020 and considered it a good learning experience in running a business, Andrew said.

Andrew briefly worked at Best Buy and is manager of the Taco Mama in Stadium Trace Village, while Rachel works at Milo’s Tea Co. The two plan to leave those jobs to open Biscuit Belly, hopefully in May or June, Andrew said .

They love The Village at Brock’s Gap and think it’s a booming neighborhood, he said.

“They’re building a ton of houses there. It’s amazing how many people come and go,” he said. “We kind of wanted to be in the middle of everything but still very close to everyone.”

The Biscuit Belly will be part of the former Harvest Market grocery store, which is split to make way for multiple businesses, Andrew said.

“We’re excited to come in and meet more people, to get started and to open up,” he said. “It should be a great place to relax, enjoy a good breakfast and start the morning.”

Mars needs better climate strategies for cocoa farmers Sat, 22 Jan 2022 01:00:37 +0000

Snickers, M&Ms, Twix bars. These candies may be found in kitchen cupboards, but their main ingredients come from much further afield. In fact, Mars Wrigley, the world’s largest chocolate producer, sources most of its cocoa, or 400,000 tonnes a year, from the Ivory Coast, Ghana and Indonesia.

As the world’s third-largest cocoa powerhouse, Indonesian farmers have a lot to lose as climate change threatens the $80 million export industry. As rainfall changes and temperatures rise, land suitable for growing cocoa will shrink by 9% by 2050. Deforestation across the country is also making fruit trees more vulnerable to pest infestations. But while climate adaptation measures are being put in place to protect smallholder farmers (those harvesting on less than five acres of land), not everyone is convinced these measures are working.

In an article recently published in Annals of the American Association of Geographers, Sean Kennedy, professor of regional and urban planning at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, examined how climate adaptation helps and hinders the lives of cocoa farmers. He particularly focused on the measures implemented by companies like Mars.

Smallholder farmers, who tend nearly 4 million acres of land across Indonesia and account for 95% of its cocoa production, often face the brunt of climate change-induced threats affecting their yield. and their benefits. To secure its own production, Mars has implemented various measures to help these producers adapt. But as Kennedy discovered, corporate action comes at the expense of farmer mobility.

[Related: Indonesia’s capital is sinking, but climate change isn’t the only culprit]

One of the mainstream climate narratives is that allowing people to stay put is the best way to help them adapt. But that ignores a history of migration in farming communities, Kennedy says.

Migration has long been used as a climate adaptation technique because it allows farmers to decide when and where they will plant, grow and process crops to avoid risk. It’s not just about agriculture – mobility is also becoming about additional livelihoods. Beyond the individual farmer and his family, different members of a household may seek temporary off-farm employment in nearby towns to reduce financial risk. But this can only be achieved through freedom of movement.

Within the larger framework of climate adaptation, however, the idea of ​​staying put no matter how the wind changes sometimes goes hand in hand with resilience, says Kennedy.

“It’s often linked to adaptation and the idea that resilience means having an increased ability to withstand shocks and not having to change what you’re doing,” he explains. “But in the case of Mars, this narrative of staying put allows them to continue producing the cocoa supply in the face of these worsening climate shocks.”

Because Mars has adopted its own system to standardize the quality of the cocoa it uses, Kennedy argues that they create a financial dependency for farmers. The standards require growers to use expensive fertilizers and pesticides. In the worst case, this can cause the farmer to go into debt or lose his land as collateral. Mars did not respond to PopSci to comment on its practices.

Kennedy points out that the company does not explicitly call these procedures climate adaptation, but at the very least they are described as measures designed to benefit smallholders. Overseas, Mars runs a production line where the company doesn’t have to take on the risk of owning the farms, but still retains significant influence. These are just a few of the ways it ensures its cocoa supply remains intact.

“A fairer solution should give people the resources to make their own decisions on their farms.”

Samuel Dupre, survey statistician with the U.S. Census Bureau’s International Program

While Mars may not call for this climate adaptation, Kennedy notes that the safeguards are meant to protect cocoa yields from labor shortages or crop disease. These hazards are increasingly shaped by climate change. In her research, Kennedy gleaned perspectives from Indonesian farmers who are increasingly vulnerable to climate change. Ultimately, these strategies put in place by Mars to boost productivity also limit the ability of cocoa farmers to use alternative coping strategies.

“Ultimately, they restrict the livelihoods that these people have,” Kennedy says. So, rather than being able to seek off-farm employment or grow other crops that might be more beneficial to them economically, [company is] reduce these opportunities to cocoa production alone.

Samuel Dupre, a survey statistician with the U.S. Census Bureau’s International Program, learned from his own experiences running microfinance operations for women in Ghana that “if you want conservation interventions to work, you have to make them work with people’s livelihoods, not in a way where you take away the ability to feed their families.

According to Dupre, who was not involved in the Kennedy study, Mars’ climate finance strategy amounts to removing individual agency from farms. “The ability of smallholder farmers to persist typically hinges on their ability to have these large livelihood portfolios,” he says. The creation of a variety of income streams through migration is a great source of security for these households. As Mars seeks to lock people in place and control what they can or cannot do with their crops and land, they threaten to strip them of the protection of diversification.

But for Dupre, there is no fair answer when it comes to big business and climate finance. “They are accountable to their stakeholders, and if they act in accordance with their mandate, they will maximize production and revenue while minimizing risk,” he says. From there, it comes down to who is going to bear the burden of risk, whether it’s companies like Mars, farmers or governments. While Dupre thinks some of Mars’ actions such as its farmer field training program could benefit local growers, ultimately decisions about change must be made by the people on the ground.

“For us in the Global North, we’re not the ones who should be making these decisions in the first place,” Dupre says. “A fairer solution should give people the resources to make their own decisions about their farms.”

[Related: Climate change makes it deadlier to cross the US-Mexico border]

In his research on small coffee farms in Guatemala, which is currently under review for publication, Dupre found that access to different sources of information on the internet or radio was essential for producers to make these decisions. . Understanding what dangers lie in wait for their farms, how other areas they might migrate to have been affected by climate change, and what actions they can take locally all contribute greatly to resilience. Non-predatory lending was another must-have.

“Access to fair financing is huge. A massive farm or large company with access to finance to cope [climate] it’s easy, but it’s expensive to be poor,” says Dupré. “The fewer resources you have, the fewer options you have, the easier it is to take advantage and have someone else pass that risk onto you.”

For Kennedy, part of the problem is a matter of framing. By seeing these farms only as cocoa farms, they are forced into limited options. “When you just focus on the commodity as an adaptation approach, it’s all about cocoa and sustaining cocoa production without thinking about it from an individual livelihood perspective,” he says.

Moving to an approach that prioritizes livelihoods, multiple household incomes and food security from different cultures offers a more sustainable solution. But until companies do, Indonesian farmers and chocolate buyers around the world will have to deal with the risks that climate change poses to their beloved ingredients.

Pune Inc: Startup serving old booze seeks to raise $5m in funding Tue, 18 Jan 2022 07:46:32 +0000 Mumbai-based artist Anand Radhakrishnan, who won the Will Eisner Comic Industry Award, considered the Oscars of the comic world, in 2021, has a penchant for sketching in public places and carries several sketchbooks with him. him.

One day in early 2019, he sat in a cafe and drew a group of customers – who turned out to be a team from Moonshine Meadery, a Pune-based company that is disrupting the alcohol market by making mead, one of the best in the world. the oldest alcoholic beverages, which were considered by the ancient Greeks to be the drink of the gods. The chance meeting between Radhakrishnan and Moonshine Meadery would result in a collaboration involving mead bottles.

Moonshine Meadery had discovered during the lockdown that many of their customers were people in their twenties. As a result, the company now wanted a younger, funkier and more stylish identity. Radhakrishnan joined the community of artists who would push the company’s rebranding by designing attractive and thought-provoking labels for its mead bottles.

While Radhakrishnan’s artwork can be seen on Apple Cyder Mead, fellow artist Sachin Bhatt, who creates “strange images that can cause strange amusement or slight discomfort” is on the bottle of Bourbon Oaked Apple Mead, and l The Clockwork Orange inspired art on the bottle of Chocolate Orange Mead is by Nikhil More.

“Before, our branding consisted of solid colors and fonts and nothing else, but we realized that today’s younger generation cares about ingredients and is willing to pay the price. There had been a huge culture shift since when we were 27. The more we talked to these people, the more we realized there was a need to rebrand and the way we communicate online needed to change as well. They want to see how we make the product and the people behind the brand. Now with every SKU we make sure there is a story that goes back to how we source the ingredient,” says Nitin Vishwas, Founder of Moonshine Meadery with Rohan Rehani.

Now Moonshine Meadery sells around 5,000 cases per month and expects that number to increase threefold this calendar year. In the past three months, they have opened four markets – Assam, Silvassa, Rajasthan and Karnataka. Himachal Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh are planned in the first months of 2022. “We increased our capacity in November 2019 and planned to open new markets when in April 2020 everything closed due to the pandemic. We manufactured disinfectants and focused on our existing market. From October 2021, we started to open new markets. It was critical to reduce our geographic risks as a result of the pandemic,” adds Vishwas.

Assam was chosen for its huge potential largely untapped by Indian brands. “Logistically it is a nightmare but if you can navigate it you will find a deep market. At UP there is a possibility of a change in wine policy which will become more favorable and with that we have started noticing a changing trend with distributors looking for new brands,” says Vishwas. The brand’s presence in Noida would also give it access to Delhi. Rajasthan was chosen because mead would attract the large tourist population of the state, while Himachal Pradesh is where people from Delhi and surrounding areas travel for short vacations.

The range of meads are aligned with the Indian palate, in particular the guava chilli, made with multifloral honey, pink and white guava and Naga ghost chilli, which appeals to the nostalgia of Indian guava sprinkled with chilli powder , and mango chili whose ingredients are Kesar mango, Guntur chili and multifloral honey.

“We’re going to try to learn from everything that’s already out there and put a new spin on it,” says Rehani. Honey is the main ingredient and Moonshine also runs the Honey Project, with honey sourced from the hills of Uttarakhand to the forests of Nilgiri. “We look for beekeepers who source responsibly and don’t compromise on quality,” says Rehani, a beekeeper himself.

Moonshine started with an initial investment of Rs 55 lakh and over the years has raised just under $2 million from known sources. Currently in the middle of its first round of institutional funding and trying to raise $5 million. “The fact that we’ve had a lot of traction, especially over the last six months, should pay dividends for us in the first half,” he adds.

Rising costs add to pandemic pain for small businesses Sun, 16 Jan 2022 18:16:16 +0000

NEW YORK (AP) — In just two weeks, the cost of pecans for pies at Peggy Jean’s Pies in Columbia, Missouri, has jumped nearly 40%, perplexing co-owner Rebecca Miller and adding to the cost of business. Miller will soon have to raise the price of its Southern Pecan, Chocolate Bourbon and German Chocolate pies from $2 to $24.

While pecans have risen the most, Miller sees price increases in everything from blackberries to condensed milk and eggs. She consults three food brokers each week to get the lowest prices for ingredients. But she still has to charge more for the nut pies.

“We cannot absorb this cost while meeting wage demands, increasing cost of goods in our boxes and boxes, and allowing us to live as a family,” she said.

Significantly higher costs are another challenge posed to business owners by the global pandemic. The unpredictability of shipping, labor, and the coronavirus itself has created an environment where owners often have to guess when products might arrive and how much they will cost. The Labor Department said Thursday that prices at the wholesale level rose a record 9.7% in December from a year ago.

“There is a tremendous amount of not only risk – risk that you can calculate – but also uncertainty. We just don’t know what’s going to happen. said Ray Keating, chief economist of the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council. “Consumer demand is there, but there are just huge constraints on the supply chain. All of this is fueling price increases.

In response, owners are raising prices, cutting staff hours, dropping certain goods and services, and canceling free shipping in a delicate balancing act. But with low visibility over the duration of rising inflation, some homeowners are increasingly worried about keeping their doors open for the long term.

“We put out new fires every day and had to reassess the way we do business to respond to new behaviors,” said Deena Jalal, owner of vegan ice cream chain FoMu and co-founder of wholesaler Sweet Tree Creamery in Boston. .

For its FoMu stores, the overall cost of business increased by around 15% in 2021 compared to 2020. It raised prices by around 10% but also took other measures: moving to more deliveries and cutting flavors like avocado ice cream, which has become too expensive. to do as avocado prices rose.

“No company can sustain the rapid increase in expenses that we saw last year,” Jalal said. “Before, you could work very hard and see progress. Now you work very hard just to try to stay afloat.

Jalal worries about the long term prospects for the small business community if the inflation does not subside soon. “If we have to work on this puzzle for another two years, I really think we’ll see a lot of companies – including us – struggling to keep their doors open.”

Elizabeth Benedict, owner of interior design firm Elizabeth Home Decor & Design in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, said prices have risen 7% to 30% for all the products she buys. She pays shipping costs on top.

“Most of these (increases) come with less than two weeks notice,” she said. “We cannot guarantee the quotes that come out and we have had to adjust our contract as well as all of our language on our proposals to reflect these varying terms.”

To deal with rising costs and overseas shipping delays, Benedict has significantly changed its list of suppliers and now only buys from American brands that manufacture products in the United States. And she added services like e-commerce and virtual design. But she still faces longer deadlines for her projects and won’t take on new clients until things stabilize.

“We keep pivoting with the punches, but we really feel like we’re being pushed and pulled in too many directions,” she said.

Some online sellers are eliminating free shipping to cut costs. Gianluca Boncompagni, owner of e-commerce site Off Road Tents, which sells off-road and on-road gear, has seen its logistics costs quadruple. In October 2020, he paid $6,300 for a 40ft container from China. In October 2021, he was paying $26,000 for the same size container.

Boncompagni increased its prices by around 5% and started charging a flat shipping rate based on the size of the item. While he may lower prices in the future, shipping costs are here to stay, he said.

“There’s simply no way for most online businesses to continue shipping pallets and fewer truck shipments without having to charge at least a little for them,” he said.

Some companies are using the channels they have developed during the pandemic to communicate with customers about the reasons for price increases, in the hope that they will be patient.

Kialee Mulumba, founder of beauty brand Jakeala in Newport News, Va., had to raise the prices of her beauty products by $1 to $5. The price of its containers has doubled – the one that used to be 50 cents was now $1. Prices for organic olive oil butters and conditioners were all up 5-10% and shipments from China were up 5%. It also reduced the hours of its four employees from full-time to part-time.

Mulumba emailed customers to be transparent and let them know prices were going up due to the rising cost of supplies. But she noticed a slight drop in sales.

“I just hope consumers support the small businesses they love — now is the time to support small businesses,” she said. “Even if you can’t buy, you can share posts, like or comment – that would really go a long way.”

7-Eleven and AMC Theaters Embrace Meatless Chicken and Other Vegan Food News of the Week Fri, 14 Jan 2022 22:02:32 +0000

It seems like every week in the world of vegan food news is more exciting than the last and this week is one for the books. The vegan chicken has spread its wings, landing in AMC theaters nationwide, 7-Eleven hot menus in Canada and, of course, KFC’s 4,000 locations. Hot dogs also had a great week, with Wienerschnitzel adding three vegetarian dogs to its nationwide menus. And vegan seafood has had a few defining moments this week. Read on to find out more.

Vegan chicken hits KFC, AMC and 7-Eleven

This week, all of our vegan chicken dreams came true. Not only has KFC expanded Beyond Fried Chicken to its national menu in 4,000 locations nationwide, but other parts of the ready-meals universe have also branched out into meatless chicken fun.

At AMC, moviegoers can now enjoy vegan chicken nuggets made by Impossible Foods while enjoying a movie. The new soy nuggets first hit stores and restaurants, including select Burger King locations, last year and are the first plant-based chicken product developed by better-known Impossible Foods. for its Impossible Burger.

7-Eleven stores in Canada also jumped on the vegan chicken bandwagon this week with the launch of Lightlife’s Vegan Chicken Tenders. Available at the convenience chain’s 600 locations across Canada, Vegan Chicken Tenders are reheated in the oven and come out grilled in minutes. Lightlife’s new vegan chicken is part of 7-Eleven’s Healthy To Go menu, designed to help Canadians find healthier, plant-based options.

Wienerschnitzel becomes meatless

Wienerschnitzel is the biggest hot dog chain in the world and this week it became the best when it added three vegetarian dogs to its menu nationwide. The dogs are made with the Signature Stadium Dog, a smoked vegan sausage created by vegan brand Field Roast from a blend of pea and bean proteins. Its signature smoky flavor comes from double smoking using maple hardwood chips and a combination of steam and dry heat.


Wienerschnitzel first tested Field Roast’s hot dog on select menus last February and after selling a large number of vegetarian dogs, the chain made it permanent additions to its menu. You can now get the vegan Barbeque Veggie Dog (served with barbecue sauce, pickle spear and onions) and the Chicago Veggie Dog (topped with pickle spear, tomatoes, sport peppers, onions, relish, mustard and celery salt). Wienerschnitzel also offers the Backyard Veggie Dog (topped with American dairy-based cheese, pickle spear, tomato, ketchup, and mustard) and it can be ordered vegan omitting the cheese.

Breakthroughs in Vegan Seafood

Industrial fishing is wreaking havoc on our oceans, and once it’s gone…we’re going. Luckily, some really big innovators are looking to take fish out of the seafood equation by creating equally good plant-based alternatives.

This week, the vegan seafood space hosted salmon burgers from Good Catch Foods, which already makes a host of fish-free products such as Perfect Salad Tuna in Pouches, Breaded Fish Sticks, Fritters crab and fish burgers. The brand’s blend of six pulses is again the base of its new salmon burgers, which also feature a dash of citrus to balance out its oceanic flavor.


Another huge innovation in vegan salmon was unveiled this week by Israeli startup Plantish. While the startup is only six months old, Plantish has already managed to achieve the impossible: a whole cut vegan salmon fillet that tastes, flakes and cooks just like the real thing. The start-up has just raised $2 million to develop its concept and will showcase it at pop-ups later this year with the aim of producing whole vegan salmon fillets at scale and at low cost by 2024.

New dairy-free ice cream to love

Although the new vegan chicken, hot dogs and seafood are all tasty news, we will never forget the dessert. This week, Magnum bolstered its existing vegan ice cream portfolio with a new Non-Dairy Hazelnut Crunch flavor that features a decadent hazelnut ice cream base with salted caramel swirled all over, which is dipped in caramelized hazelnuts and non-dairy chocolate. dairy. Magnum has also launched tiny, bite-sized vegan ice cream bars in a diverse assortment of classic and almond flavors, all coated in that crunchy chocolate shell.


Magnum isn’t the only brand launching new vegan frozen treats this week. Ben & Jerry’s has gotten very creative with its new line of pints created to look like classic American sundaes, including a vegan flavor designed to celebrate Veganuary. The Non-Dairy Berry Revolutionary features a raspberry ice cream base with chocolate sandwich cookies and chocolate cookie swirls, and is topped with non-dairy soft whipped ice cream with caramel swirls and chocolate chunks.

Although this flavor is currently only available in the UK, when we pressed Ben & Jerry’s about a US launch, they gave us an ambiguous (but perhaps hopeful): ” we never know “. In the meantime, we’ll just To obligate indulge in the two new vegan flavors (Bananas Foster and Boom Chocolatta) that Ben & Jerry’s just launched in the US last week.

Vegan cookies for Veganuary

Want some half-Veganuary cookies? You’re in luck because Insomnia Cookies just expanded its vegan selection to include two new options: Chocolate Banana Bread Cookie and The All the Above Cookie (which is loaded with chocolate covered pretzels, coconut and chocolate chips White and Black).


These cookies are only available for Veganuary and join Insomnia’s three existing vegan flavors – Chocolate Chunk, Double Chocolate Chunk and Birthday Cake – which the delivery service launched in 2020. The best part? You can get those sweet circles of joy delivered until 3 a.m. because insomnia (almost) never sleeps.

the design by valentino gareri atelier (find out more here) incorporates five fundamental principles. first of all, it is modular, which means that it is scalable, reproducible and adaptable to different sites, sizes and geometries. moreover, it is fully functional – the village will function as a cocoa processing factory, a chocolate factory, an education and research center, a cultural and cohabitation point of reference for the local community and a conscious tourist destination. it is also durable, serving as a self-sufficient village made from local materials such as bamboo, wood, and 3D printed structures made from cocoa hull waste biofilaments. the project is also compatible with technology, using blockchain, IoT and NFTs. last but not least, the cocoa eco-village is bound to the local community and its traditions.

draw on local tradition and cocoa trees

“We pushed the fundamentals of the circular economy so much that they informed the design philosophy of the whole project. the cocoa waste, the result of the chocolate production process, will be reused for the 3d printing of parts of the village. waste is not only transformed into a resource, but into architecture. in the not-so-distant future, we will be able to design buildings entirely from natural materials and recycle them at the end of their life cycle to either create new ones or return them to nature. ‘ sharing valentino gareri. the facades are inspired by the wide range of multicolored Ecuadorian houses and the colorful fruits of the cocoa trees. the shape of the buildings facilitates the collection of rainwater: the water reservoirs are integrated into the roofs, the shape of which is inspired by local Ecuadorian artistic motifs.

the village has a dense network of cycle-pedestrian boulevards, and the use of electric vehicles is strongly encouraged with the presence of charging stations, while the transits of cars and trucks are limited only around the factory and of the production area. this new class of sustainable and smart infrastructure assets appears as a solution for the environmental and social impact of the cocoa industry, using a circular economy model as a creative solution to reduce the environmental footprint, generate increased revenues, reduce dependence on resources and minimize waste.
