Making Bread Fun Again

When Ron Siegel started his bread bakery his family told him that they thought it would be successful "When Pigs Fly" – he started it anyway.  

25 years later, the bakery continues to thrive and delight thousands of customers every week who purchase their artisan bread from their own company stores and retailers throughout New England.  

The secret to their bread is the old-world techniques that they use combined with the innovative, modern flavors they create.  

The blend delivers breads that are both memorable and craveable.  

Starting in 2020 we will now be able to offer a range of our breads nationwide.  Quickly frozen directly after baking and shipped to you.  Available in Pullman, Boule and Roll formats, 

When Pigs Fly breads will bring consumers back to bread.

Comfort Food Re-imagined for Today's Consumer

It all started in a kitchen in Maine, preparing for a large gathering of friends and family for the last Lobster Feast of the season. On the stove sat a large pot of Corn Chowder. Slowing simmering, chock full of local sweet corn, fresh Maine potatoes' and seasoned with a “healthy” amount of rendered bacon.

But this was not a traditional New England Corn Chowder. For in that pot of savory goodness, lay a secret that only the chef knew, that this recipe was both dairy and gluten free. Designed so that the entire family could indulge.

It was not till after the meal was over that the secret was revealed – to universal surprise - no one knew. So began the journey of bringing Eat’n Good foods to market. Converting that original recipe to one that can be made in volume and still deliver the original taste, texture and pleasure we got the first time we tried it on a porch in Maine.

Today we are bringing to market those initial soups as well as a range of fresh prepared meals, savory sides and d that are designed with today's consumer in mind. Guaranteed to delight consumers taste buds while also delivering convenience and value.

Once we understand the nature of the engagement, we can develop a proposal that would include the Scope, Target Completion and KPI’s

Market Introduction

You have the product ready to go and simply need help introducing it to the market. We can help you here as well, working with you on commission, to successfully get your product in front of key retail and food service decision makers. 

Partnering with your entire organization..

Innovation

image85

 Creating New Products is Easy.

Creating New Products that meet a need for your target consumer, while at the same time meeting your need for cost, margin and
volume is not.

We have over 30 years experience successfully bringing new products to
market that drive sales and profitability.

We work collaboratively with the team to implement a well defined
development process that results in
products that meet the needs of the
consumer, your retail/foodservice partner and the company.

Product Design

image86

  30,000 New Products are introduced to the retail market every year. 

To differentiate yourself you need to design a product that is both attractive (to get your customers attention) and functional (so that it meets their needs)

We work with packaging experts both locally and from around the world to find the right packaging solution for each product,

utilizing the packaging to engage
consumers and define the
product's
Unique Selling Point 

Pricing Strategy

image87

There is a fine balance that needs to be achieved when pricing a new product. 

All three stakeholders
(Manufacturer, Retailer and Consumer)
need to be satisfied in order to deliver success. 

We work with the Finance, Operations and NPD to develop product pricing guidelines which then inform the development process. 

The result is the efficient and timely development of
products that meet expectations and
are
optimized for success.

From Inception to Launch

Commercialization

image88

A Great Product can easily become a Poor product when the transfer from
Development to Manufacturing
is not done well.

Having worked with fresh and frozen food manufacturers to deliver both large
and small projects we can
successfully lead you through this transition.

Working with Operations to insure that they are ready to deliver quality consistent with the original product design.

Creating ongoing panels to insure that the product maintains its
USP moving forward.

Market Intelligence

image89

How do we differentiate your new product from the other 30,000 new products?
How do we make sure that you succeed?

We actively secure information on consumer trends and market intelligence from various sources, including IRI, Hartman Group, FMI, Technomics and
Industry Thought Leaders to
insure that the products that we
introduce are timely, fill a current
consumer need and through flavor
and presentation will be a
compelling offer for both the
retail partner
and the consumer. 

Business Development

image90
