CARPINTERIA, CA, JUNE 20, 2018 – Edward & Sons Trading Company (edwardandsons.com), a pioneer in the natural foods industry that introduced Miso-Cup® instant soup and gluten-free Brown Rice Snaps® to American consumers, will feature a diverse range of recently-introduced and newly-repackaged products during this year’s Summer Fancy Food Show, taking place June 30 – July 2 at Javits Center in  New York.

Exhibiting at Booth #5660 during the show, Edward & Sons is currently marking its 40th anniversary milestone as the company continues to meet and anticipate the needs of millions of health and environmentally-conscious consumers seeking deliciously nutritious vegetarian, vegan, organic and/or gluten-free versions of their favorite foods and condiments.

Here’s To Your Health!                                                                                                                            Products highlighted during the Fancy Food Show will showcase Edward & Sons’ longstanding commitment to innovation, convenience and natural purity. These include items sold under the flagship Edward & Sons brand name, as well as such popular company-owned brands as Let's Do®...Organic, Let's Do®...Gluten-Freeand Native Forest®.

GLUTEN FREE & ORGANIC ICE CREAM CONES (FEATURING BOLD NEW PACKAGING) – Summer is here and that means not only enjoying picnics, outdoor outings, home BBQs and more, but indulging in just about everybody's favorite dessert - ice cream! Unfortunately, for millions of people with Celiac Disease, the simple pleasure of enjoying a scoop or two of ice cream atop a genuinely tasty cone has remained frustratingly out of reach. Until now.  

Let's Do®...Gluten-Free Ice Cream Cones are classic, hand-holdable cones for everyone’s favorite frozen desserts. Top them with a scoop or two of ice cream and garnish them with fresh fruit, syrups or Let's Do...® Sprinkelz™ - festive and delicious natural decorations for frozen desserts and baked goods. Let's Do®...Gluten-Free Ice Cream Cones are available in Cake Style and Sugar Rolled Style.

In addition, Let's Do®...Organic offers similarly healthy and authentically delectable organic cones, likewise available in Cake Style and Sugar Rolled Style.

JACKFRUIT COMES OF AGE –Since being introduced a few months back, Edward & Sons’two new Organic Young Jackfruit products have become favorites among home chefs yearning for a new meatless alternative to soy.

Edward & Sons Organic Young Jackfruit is offered in two cuts: chunky Pieces and versatile Shred - both unseasoned (an important distinction because other jackfruit items on the market are packed in sauces which some may not like). Both new Edward & Sons Organic Young Jackfruit items contain only one ingredient: 100% organic and gluten-free jackfruit.

The two new Edward & Sons Jackfruit products join the company’s Native Forest-branded Organic Young Jackfruit, also a popular vegan alternative to meat thanks to its neutral flavor and meaty texture. 

All of Edward & Sons' Jackfruit packages are shelf stable, requiring no refrigeration until opened.

GOIN’ COCONUTS – As a company that was among the very first to recognize the amazing versatility and market potential of coconut, it’s no surprise that Edward & Sons offers an constantly-evolving family of  delicious coconut products. Featured during Fancy Food will be:

Newly-repackaged Let's Do... Organic® Unsweetened Shredded Coconut; Reduced Fat Unsweetened Shredded Coconut; and Lightly Sweetened Organic Shredded Coconut (all finely shredded for baking and ideal atop baked goods, acai bowls, smoothies, and more);100% Organic Unsweetened Coconut Flakes; and 100% Organic Unsweetened Toasted Coconut Flakes.

      Also on display will be Let's Do... Organic® Heavy Coconut Cream (ideal for non-dairy whipped cream, desserts and more); and Organic Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk.

A History of “Firsts”                                                                                                                                                               

In addition to Miso-Cup soup and Baked Brown Rice Snaps, Edward & Sons has been first-to-market with numerous forward-looking products over the past 40 years, including canned coconut milk, hearts of palm, pineapple chunks and mandarin oranges, Worcestershire sauce, croutons, panko, ice cream cones and many more.

According to founder and CEO Joel Dee,We tend to do `firsts’ because that’s what we’re passionate about. We’re driven to provide new options to our health-aware consumers, while  creating markets for our ethical organic farmers and packers around the globe. We’re proud of our activities that protect native forests and support conversion from conventional to organic farming, which nourishes the environment while enhancing the well-being of everyone along the supply chain from farm to table.”

Indeed, Joel and his team have successfully developed so many different products over these past 40 years that they’ve chosen to create subsidiary brands to market and distinguish them all, including the aforementioned Edward & Sons®, Native Forest®,  Let’s Do Organic®, and Let’s Do Gluten-Free®, as well as More Than Fair®, Nature Factor®, Road’s End Organics®, Premier Japan® and The Wizard's®. 

Regardless of the brand name on the package, however, all products under the Edward & Sons umbrella are defined by the company’s longstanding commitment to excellent vegetarian food and to its enduring motto: Convenience Without Compromise

As Joel sums up, “We remain a vegetarian company that’s mission-driven to offer consumers delicious and nourishing convenience foods free of artificial ingredients. That’s how we’ve run the business for the past 40 years and it’s how I envision Edward & Sons to be run for the next 40 years and beyond.”

“The Wellness aisle in any grocery store can be overwhelming with consumers often sacrificing taste for familiarity,” says Chet Dhole, Senior Brand Manager, Kashi Canada. “Kashi joi is shaking that up with purposefully selected ingredients and carefully crafted flavour combinations to satisfy the unmet need within the growing health and wellness market. In fact, we called the bars Kashi joi because we believe this space will welcome the joyful eating experience and exciting choices that our bars provide.”

With summer break around the corner, Kashi joi bars are a convenient and nutritious option during busy days and big adventures. Ideal for an extra burst of protein on a hike or for a satisfying mid-afternoon snack, Kashi joi bars are perfectly portable and ready to be enjoyed on-the-go.

“I love every Kashi joi bar! Simply look at the label and you'll see why,” says Peggy. ”They deliver on taste with delicious and surprising flavour twists. Yet, they also offer an excellent source of protein in a nutritious bar. As both a nutritionist and foodie, I recommend Kashi joi bars as a healthy, convenient and delicious snack.” 

A Multi-Sensorial Experience with Kashi joi Tutored Tastings
Kashi joi is a multi-sensorial experience with the elements of taste, smell, touch and sight all playing an important role in the overall sensation of the bars.

The fun audio guides walk listeners through the experience of eating a Kashi joi bar, describing the ingredients and incorporating some mindful eating practices to encourage “joyful little snackers” to nosh on! Kashi joi is also sharing an online video about the creation of the bars on Kashi Canada’s Facebook channel to illustrate the bars’ simple ingredients and minimal processing.
