Anuga Organic Fully Booked

The coming Anuga from October 7 to 11 2017 in Cologne offers an overview of the global market offer of organic products. A  concentrated spectrum of organic products will be on display in the Anuga Organic division of the Anuga trade show, where the only products allowed are those that carry an approved organic certification that is a standard on the market. Additional organic products will be listed in the exhibitor database under the keyword, “Organic Products.” By sorting with this filter, attendees can identify organic products on display anywhere throughout the Anuga show floor. The list of companies that present their products here has grown constantly over the course of the past years. In 2013, 1,796 companies presented organic products. That number grew to 2,030 in 2015, and further growth is expected at the 2017 show.

 

Several companies are placing their focus on the trend theme vegan food, for instance Das Eis, joy.foods, PureRaw, Purya!, Tofutown, Topas and Veganz. The Bulgarian supplier Roo’Bar, who already exhibited at ISM in Cologne is a further new exhibitor.

The special event “Anuga Organic Market” is also going to take place again in the scope of Anuga Organic. Here, theory becomes tangible practice when organic products that are ready to sell in supermarkets are presented in an attractive environment. The focus will be on fresh products this year, i.e. milk and dairy products as well as meat products, fruit and vegetables, including pre-cut salads and fruit and similar items. The topic of service counters and counter design will also be addressed. The wine shelf will also be well-stocked with around 30 wines from organic production. In total, between 1,500 and 2,000 products will be on display here.

The presentation “Anuga OliveOil Market” is a further special event with organic potential. It will once again be staged on the central trade fair boulevard of the Anuga grounds. Numerous olive oils of a wide range of origins will be offered for sampling here. Experts from the olive oil industry will support the format with background information on cultivation, varieties and production, and an olive oil congress will be held on 8 October 2017.

Sesame King Introduces Mix and Serve Hummus Kit

Sesame King has launched its Sesame King Mix and Serve Hummus Kit, which gives consumers the ability to make delicious homemade hummus in minutes. The kit contains a 15.5-ounce can of chickpeas, a 4-ounce pouch of Sesame King tahini paste and a packet of proprietary special seasoning that takes all the guess work out of making delicious hummus. The hummus is all natural, non-GMO, gluten free, vegan approved, trans fat free, cholesterol free and kosher certified. The new kit provides consumers with everything needed to prepare fresh traditional style hummus in the comfort of their own home in just minutes. The hummus is all natural with a subtle, delightful aroma and is rich in texture, fresh and delicious.

“We are very excited to be introducing our new hummus kit to retailers and consumers across the United States,” said Emile Maroun of Sesame King. “Consumers and retailers are looking for safe, new, exciting and innovated healthy products, and we believe that our Sesame King Hummus Kit meets and exceeds those expectations.”

Sesame King also offers consumers a line of tahini pastes that come in 16-ounce plastic jars and are available in Roasted, Light Roasted, Garlic, Olive Oil, Cajun, Honey and Chocolate flavors. Each flavor is rich in proteins and vitamins, made with no additives or preservatives, peanut and tree nut free, trans fat free, gluten free and kosher certified. Both the Roasted and Light Roasted Tahini pastes are Non-GMO Project verified. Sesame King tahini is the only manufacturer to pasteurize its tahini to ensure a clean, healthy and safe product for consumer usage.

Sesame King’s mix and serve Hummus Kit provides consumers with a powerful nutritional food choice that packs a kaleidoscope of healthy inclusions:

  • Tahini is richer in protein than milk, yogurt, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, walnuts, soya, sunflower, wheat germ and pecan nuts.
  • Tahini contains natural lecithin, which reduces blood fat levels and provides protection from environmental pollutants such as nicotine.
  • Tahini provides substantial amounts of many vitamins, including Vitamin E, which slows the aging of body cells and helps maintain proper focusing of the eyes.
  • Tahini is also one of the best sources of Vitamin T (very few foods are). Vitamin T improves memory and concentration in combination with phosphorous also present in tahini, providing a potent brain and nerve food.

“As a leading manufacturer of tahini, our never ending goal is to produce tahini products that taste great and provide consumers with a healthy food choice. Healthy is good. Healthy and tasty is fantastic,” added Maroun.

Sesame King Tahini can be found at such fine retailers as Whole Food Markets, Market Basket, Shaw’s, King’s Supermarkets, Wise Markets, Tops Market, Balducci’s, Spartan Nash, Safeway Eastern, Albertsons South West, Acme, Pete’s Fresh Markets and Citarella Markets and at Restaurant Depots and many other fine markets and specialty health food stores or order online at www.sesameking.com and www.amazon.com.
