Vendors at the Winter Fancy Food Show are launching a variety of premium products for consumers who want and can afford the best but who are also observant of their own or others’ dietary restrictions. Torani, for instance, in booth #4116 during the San Francisco show, is launching out with Torani Signature, a new line of flavor syrups developed for retailers serving consumers who are looking for a clean-eating experience. These are made without GMOs, artificial colors or flavors.
Currently, the retail line includes three flavors, Hazelnut, Caramel and Vanilla. The vanilla flavor is sweetened with organic agave as well as pure cane sugar. The company has 18 flavors of the Signature line in foodservice packaging, but there are no immediate plans to expand the retail line, since the line was just launched in July and is just reaching stores now. A 10.1 fluid-ounce bottle retails for $4.99, and the product is currently carried at Sprouts and online. It’s available through UNFI and KeHE.
The Salted Caramel flavor in Torani’s regular syrup line launched last year and is still rolling out in major retailers. Sales are growing as more consumers discover the salty-sweet flavor profile. .

Boat Street Pickles is making a line of pickled fruits, including Pickled Raisins, Pickled French Plums, Pickled Figs, Pickled Apricots and Pickled Cherries, which are the newest addition to the product line. Nine-ounce jars retail for around $10.
The products combine fruits with spices, herbs and peppers to add a flavor kick to finish an otherwise unremarkable meat dish. The cherries and figs pair well with dairy desserts like panna cotta or ice cream, and all four work with cheeses. They’re all available for immediate shipment.
The figs are also newly available in a 64-ounce foodservice pack that will wholesale for around $40. The raisins and cherries will be the next to be offered in foodservice packaging, but there’s no timeline on that yet.

Emmi Roth is wooing home cooks who understand that the best ingredients make the best food but who don’t have time for a lot of prep work with Roth Ultimates: three quality blends of shredded cheese, and Shredded Grand Cru. Grand Cru is Emmi Roth’s brand for its cheeses made in the gruyere tradition.
The three Roth Ultimates blends include Ultimate Mac & Cheese, which includes Grand Cru, Havarti and sharp Cheddar cheeses. The Ultimate Firehouse blend includes Grand Cru, 3-Chile Pepper Gouda and Smoked Fontina, while the Ultimate Flatbread blend combines Grand Cru, mild Provolone and Fontiago cheeses. All of those and the shredded Grand Cru Original are offered in 6-ounce gusseted and pegboard-ready packs to retail at prices comparable to what consumers expect to pay for premium cheese.
These products are made from the same high-quality well-aged cheeses that Emmi Roth is known for and are packaged without added preservatives to appeal to home cooks who want to prepare restaurant-quality food at home. They’ll be available to ship in early spring of this year.
