Article Excerpt

Innovation is the lifeblood of survival in business, yet it is oftentime one of the hardest things for companies to achieve. We see it all the time – a company takes great pains to amass the industry’s top talent, only to reap lackluster results from its all-star team.

Different – Different ideas are the rare projects that no one else has thought of before and have few, if any, predecssors or roots to trace. These ideas often meet resistance, especially in organizations with “not-invented-here” syndrome.

The mp3 player presented and entirely new mode of consuming music, and to some degree, Apples’ idea to market the device as sexy and cool, are innovations that redefined a whole industry.

Other examples of Different ideas are as grand as the Internet or as small as Hahn’s marketing of yogurt cream cheese.

Low Calorie, High Profits 

Author Barney Wolf

Some people may consider the term healthful dessert as a bit of an oxymoron.

Desserts are typically recognized as being indulgent—rich and flavorful—and not necessarily a part of the dining experience that would be considered good for you.

But perception is not always reality, and it’s not necessarily difficult for quick-service restaurants to feature desserts that are nutritious, low in calories, and, yes, even healthy.

“There are actually many good options available at restaurants right now, and new products are being added all the time,” says Kerry Neville, spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association and a Seattle-based registered dietician.

The food sample that got the most attention and buzz were Moose Ballsat the Gum Technology booth. The company promoted its Moose Balls prior to the show through press releases, postcards and its Web site. The show sample was a delicious chocolate mousse, created by Executive Chef Jason R. Gronlund, senior director of culinary at Carla’s Pasta, featuring Gum’s stabilizing ingredient. In a great co-branding collaboration, the mousse also contained yogurt cream cheese by Franklin Foods and flavorings by Kerry.
