Goldfish crackers makes a splash at mealtime with new mac and cheese
NORWALK, Conn. — Pepperidge Farms, makers of the cheese-flavored Goldfish crackers, announced today a new line of macaroni and cheese products based on the Goldfish brand will hit store shelves next week.
New Goldfish Mac & Cheese will be available in four varieties: cheddar, nacho cheese, cheesy pizza and butter parmesan. Goldfish Mac & Cheese is made with real cheese sauce and has no artificial preservatives.
“Just like Mac & Cheese, the Goldfish brand is adored by children and adults alike, so it made perfect sense for us to add the fun and wholesomeness of Goldfish to this favorite classic food,” said Jared Konstanty, senior vice president and general manager of snacks. “We’re thrilled to be able to deliver even more smiles to our devoted fans with the launch of Goldfish Mac & Cheese.”
Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Mac & Cheese will be available exclusively in Walmart stores nationwide.

Open-See, Beautique among ‘must-see’ programs at Cosmoprof North America in July
LAS VEGAS — In anticipation of the Cosmoprof North America conference in Las Vegas in July, CPNA is reminding attendees of several “must-see” programs.
Cosmoprof North America will take place July 14 to 16 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
Attendees are encouraged to stop by the exclusive one-stop beauty shop for free sampling — Beautique, a new sampling concept that will be unveiled at the show. Pick up some of the latest up-and-coming cosmetics, skin care, nails, hair and some classic beauty favorites. As the first to bring customized sampling to a trade show, CPNA has created a sampling bar that will feature select exhibiting brands for a nominal donation. This gives exhibitors an opportunity to gain more visibility with buyers in attendance. All proceeds collected will benefit City Of Hope.
Key merchants Claudia Lucas, director of merchandising for beauty at QVC; Erica Evans, VP of merchandising for beauty at HSN; and Wendy Pos-Cerveira, director of health and beauty at The Shopping Channel will host a live Open-See to meet with exhibiting companies looking for the next hot beauty product. The live presentations will be open to all Cosmoprof North America exhibitors and take place from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on July 15th in a private meeting room inside Mandalay Bay Convention Center with video cameras recording each presentation.
Furthermore, CPNA is bringing back the popular Emerging Beauty. This program allows new manufacturers who have never been a part of the show to experience firsthand the business opportunities it presents. There are two sections within Emerging Beauty — one dedicated to finished products for retail distribution located in Pavilion A: Cosmetics and Personal Care and the other dedicated to professional use for the salon industry located in Pavilion D: Professional Hair, Nails and Tools. The two areas are marked and found on site.
CPNA is also reminding attendees to stop by Discover Beauty and Spotlights. It is the hub of what is new and trending in beauty, and the number of exhibitors continues to grow.
H.D. Smith buys majority stake in Triplefin
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Pharmaceutical wholesaler H.D. Smith will buy a majority interest in a Cincinnati-based patient assistance, pharmaceutical brand support and reimbursement company.
The wholesaler said Thursday that it had originally acquired majority board representation in Triplefin and would secure majority stock ownership in it. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
H.D. Smith said combining the two companies would create and end-to-end service value chain touching all aspects of prescription medicine distribution and support, with Triplefin working alongside Smith Medical Partners, and both subsidiaries being under H.D. Smith’s Specialty Solutions division.
"The completion of this acquisition affirms the service power of two highly specialized, focused organizations that help advance traditional and specialty brand pharmaceutical support offerings to manufacturing partners, specialty pharmacy customers, healthcare professionals and most importantly patients with highly specialized healthcare needs," H.D. Smith chairman and CEO Dale Smith said. "The benefit of Triplefin joining H.D. Smith Specialty Solutions is already seen across all channels of our business; we are now a stronger partner for brand and specialty manufacturers, a highly valuable service provider for institutions, acute care, physician offices, specialty and retail pharmacies and a trusted supplier for patients expecting reliable access to prescription medicines."
Expanded service offerings provided by Triplefin include critical distribution and fulfillment, pharmacy services, technology and specialty product education.
"The specialty health services model of today does more than just ensure that a product travels safely and securely from manufacturer to patient," H.D. Smith Specialty Solutions president Joseph Conda said. "Today’s model must ensure that the needs of pharmacists, physicians, payers, group purchasing organizations and patients are met, from patient care information and education materials to clinical needs."
