The 2015 Winter Fancy Food Show, one of the largest conventions for the specialty, natural, and gourmet food and beverage industries, begins this Sunday in San Francisco.

Bone broth may have debuted during prehistoric times but apparently it’s now coming back in a big way. The New York Times recently profiled the drink, which has become particularly appealing to those involved in another popular trend, the Paleo Diet.
Having updated its leadership ranks via internal promotion and external hires, Purity Organic is now aiming to round out its executive team with a proven manager to head up its sales department.
The label update for Powered ON (which debuted as ON Beverages) looks cleaner than its initial effort. However, we feel as though it still looks a bit too technical to the point where it doesn’t appeal to one’s senses as well as it could.
Dollar sales of carbonated soft drinks (CSD) were up 3.6 percent in the U.S. C-store channel in the four-week period ending on December 2014.

Big Geyser, which has been responsible for much of the success of Glaceau in New York, will cease to carry Glaceau products by March.
TumericALIVE has extended its line of turmeric-infused beverages with a trio of "Super Blends." The high pressure processed elixirs include three distinct varieties, including a cold-brew coffee product, a matcha drink and a chocolate-infused beverage. Without a doubt, the company has done exceedingly well with the formulations.

Yuvia Pure is a not from concentrate coconut water that is made with young coconuts from Brazil. The product, which claims to not add any sugar, has a slightly sweeter and less salty flavor than what we’ve seen in other brands. However, we can’t say that product this is preferable to those that add sugar.
Vermont Tapped, which is a product from the same company that produces the TreTap line of beverages, is an “enhanced” maple water beverage. The enhancement is maple syrup, which has been combined with maple water, maple flavor, citric acid and carbon dioxide to create a zero-calorie product that drinks like a flavored seltzer.
Three speakers have joined the FBU Austin lineup to help new food & beverage brands understand the financial and legal issues that can complicate launches and brand growth.
