Marketplace trends to watch for in 2013: It's time to think small
Food Processing
With 2013 planning season in full swing, intensified competition and fickle demand have all of us looking for those rare uncontested market spaces where we can add value. These opportunities are increasingly hard to find, yet the emerging small household demographic represents such a space. Our market rules are undergoing great change and will be altered by this new, dominant and growing demographic.

Those manufacturers that reach, engage and design products for the new demographics will be the real winners in the marketplace. More

Study: Listeria linked to cantaloupe in 2011 reveals new outbreak strain
Food Safety News
After analyzing four of the five types of Listeria implicated in 2011's deadly cantaloupe outbreak, scientists have discovered that a new outbreak strain was among those that contributed to the nearly 150 illnesses and 33 deaths caused by contaminated melons. The researchers, an international team of government and university scientists, also compared the strains involved in the 2011 outbreak to those that had caused other outbreaks or been collected from other food facilities. By doing this, they identified two new sets of "epidemic clones" — strains isolated in different times and places that appear to have common ancestors. More
