Hershey to acquire Brookside Foods
HERSHEY, Pa. — Hershey has set its sights on a privately held confectionery company based in Canada.
The chocolate giant said that it has reached an agreement to acquire Brookside Foods, which is based in Abbotsford, British Columbia, which primarily sells its product line in the United States and Canada. Brookside’s annual net sales are approximately $85 million Canadian dollars, the companies said.
“The acquisition of Brookside is an opportunity for Hershey to expand our portfolio in this category,” Hershey president and CEO John Bilbrey said. “Brookside pairs dark chocolate with exotic fruit-juice centers, such as goji, acai, blueberry and pomegranate, to create great-tasting treats, while delivering the benefits of flavanols and antioxidants. We look forward to building Brookside by leveraging Hershey’s scale at retail.”

ConAgra unveils newest Egg Beaters flavor
OMAHA, Neb. — ConAgra Foods’ Egg Beaters brand has announced the launch of a new flavor: Egg Beaters Florentine, a blend of spinach, tomato, onion, mozzarella cheese and Italian herbs.
Egg Beaters Florentine is the newest flavor in the line of flavored Egg Beaters, and like all Egg Beaters varieties is made of real, all-natural egg whites, according to the company. One serving of Egg Beaters Florentine contains 4 g of protein, less than 5 mg of cholesterol, less than 0.5 g of fat and only 30 calories, ConAgra stated.
"Consumers enjoy new variations of everyday foods, and current trends show Italian flavors are becoming more popular at breakfast," said Jill Dexter, Egg Beaters brand manager for ConAgra Foods. "For those who want to experience rustic Italian taste for fewer calories than an Italian breakfast made of real eggs, Egg Beaters Florentine provides a healthy and convenient solution in just one easy pour."
Egg Beaters Florentine will be available in a 15-oz. resealable pour-spout container nationwide as of mid-December for a suggested retail price of $2.99 per 15-oz. carton.
As an animal lover, I sure hope they're making these egg beaters with cage-free eggs!
