FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – SK Food International, Inc.


ND – SK Food International leads the way as ingredient supplier for many of this year’s top food trends. As noted in recent industry media, some of the top food trends for 2006 include products made with gluten-free ingredients and organic ingredients, as well as products made with omega-3’s, whole grains, and free/reduced trans fatty acids. Most of the Identity Preserved ingredients offered by SK Food International include one or more of the current food trends.

Consumers appear to be moving toward diverse diet choices, rather than focusing on one fad or diet. The extensive product line of SK Food International displays a wide range of ingredients tailored to manufacturers’ demand. SK Food International supplies Identity Preserved food and feed ingredients including Certified Organic and Conventional Non-GMO dry beans, grains, seeds, soybeans, brans/germs, cocoa products, flours, oils and vinegars, meals, sweeteners, split/dehulled soybeans, and instant/quick cook powders/flakes to a worldwide market.

Unlike industry fads, many of today’s trends are emerging from consumers’ interest in a healthier lifestyle, in addition to growing health concerns such as obesity and food allergies.? Specifically, SK Food International offers trans-fat free oils; along with flaxseed, a known source of omega-3’s. “We have a definite pulse on what’s happening in the food industry and we certainly embrace opportunities to answer the manufacturer’s call for healthy choices, which are consumer-driven,” explains Jennifer Tesch, SK Food International Marketing Director.?

“I think the key for manufacturers is to find a reputable and reliable supplier who can handle their diverse ingredient needs, while knowing and understanding industry trends and dynamics. That is SK Food International. We are very proud that we are that one-stop shop for our customers’ ingredient needs,” notes Tesch. Many products SK Food International supplies are whole grains, such as amaranth, barley, buckwheat, millet, quinoa, rye, sorghum, and flaxseed. SK Food International’s gluten-free offerings are available in the form of whole beans/grains, flours, and instant/quick cook powder/flakes, including amaranth, dry edible beans, sorghum, and quinoa.

“We think of ourselves as an innovative and customer-driven ingredient supplier by providing our customers with the Best Value – Quality, Service, Price. It’s great to see the growth of ideas and products from consumer demand that SK Food International has believed in since our start, more than 15 years ago,” says Tesch. Notably, all of SK Food International’s organic ingredients are certified by globally recognized Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA) and Quality Assurance International, Inc. (QAI).
