Bakeries can make great headway in today’s marketplace with innovative new products that meet the evolving needs of consumers, who are far more international in their flavor preferences than ever before.
Anthony & Sons Bakery reports very positive results from its new Avocado Seven Grains Bread, which is made with guacamole spice.
“I want to see what the trends are, and we looked into avocado, which is such a big category now. It is growing 5-10% year to year,” said Ben Rizzitello, vice president for sales/marketing at Anthony & Sons. “We have gotten so much attention from such a unique, trending product. Chefs have called us because they want to put our product on the menu. It’s such an exciting time for us.”
The company’s R&D team has been working diligently on this unique formula, becoming the first to market with one of the top trending categories in the industry.
Anthony & Sons is also excited to deliver an item that’s on trend, healthy, clean label, vegan, packed with grains and flavor and offering a ton of benefits. One powerful loaf of bread makes a delicious sandwich, perfect as a stand-alone, toasted for breakfast or great with vegetables and guacamole for dipping as a snack or appetizer.
The thaw-and-sell product comes in a 24-ounce loaf, designed for easy convenience in foodservice or retail usage. Loaded with seven grains such as sunflower, oats, and more, not only are there grains in the interior crumb but they also enrobed the loaf with an exterior crust of seven grains. The spice added gives a hint of guacamole flavor mixed with fresh avocado.
Anthony & Sons has proven to be the leader in innovation and has transformed the bread-baking industry with its EZ Freezer to Oven line. The company is one of today’s largest suppliers of breads and rolls throughout the country, with a 65,000-square-food, fully automated production plant.
“We are focused on unique trending flavors, and we have also incorporated siracha in our brioche loaf. It’s gotten so much attention. This is really exciting for us.”
