Infographic of the World’s 10 Biggest Food Companies

30 Jan

We love sharing infographics with our readers, especially foodservice ones. In the spirit of education, did you know that so many of our favorite food and beverage brands are owned by just a handful of companies? Just as with data, we find it fascinating how a visualization can bring a concept to life! What else did you learn about looking at the infographic below?

Big companies like Kellogg, Coca-Cola, and PepsiCo rarely sell their products directly to the consumer. Instead, they use foodservice distributors that will sell and ship their product s for them. These distributors are the middleman between the manufacturer and the foodservice operator, and help brands get their products inside restaurants, schools, and hospitals.

If you are a business looking for distributors to carry your products, CHD Expert can help you get in touch with key decision makers in the foodservice industry. Our databases are updated monthly and can provide you with useful information to help select the right distributor for your company. If you have any questions or want to learn more about CHD Expert’s Foodservice Distribution List, please give us a call at (312) 768-6900 or email Cathy at cathy@chd-expert.com.

America’s Favorite Food And The Economics Behind The Hamburger

22 Jul

Author: Nico Watson

Memorial Day Weekend usually kicks off the first official BBQ of the summer, and something we know is that Americans love hamburgers and cheeseburgers! Funny enough, while everyone seems to love hamburgers, everyone loves to dress their hamburger in their own way!

One of our favorite examples of individualized hamburgers is the menu and secret menu at In-N-Out. Did you know you could order a 3×3, ketchup and mustard instead, whole grill and pickles? It’s true! In-N-Out lets you customize a burger just the way you like it, even if it’s not on their menu, or their not-so-secret-menu.

As you know, here at CHD Expert, we provide data to foodservice professionals. Do you know which state has the most burger restaurants in America? According to our 2012 Foodservice Operator Update, California has the largest percentage of hamburger restaurants in the US, coming in at 12.3%. Furthermore, there are a total of 50, 064 hamburger restaurants in all of the US. Want more restaurant data, fill out the form to request a call. Click here.

When we saw this great infogaphic about hamburgers that uses data to tell us about the economics behind America’s favorite food, the hamburger, we got very excited! Take a look and let us know what you think? We are still amazed by staggering ketchup statistic that 71 pounds are consumed per person each year! Yikes

So next time you fire up the grill, take a good look at how you’re assembling your burger and how you contribute to the economics of Americans favorite food.

The Impact of Fast Food on America – InfoGraphic of the new (AB)Normal

29 May

Fast food portion sizes have increased since 1950s and companies like McDonalds do not want to admit that they might be part of the problem. Last week, McDonald’s Corp. voted down a proposal to assess its impact on public health, particularly childhood obesity. Do you think that fast food has contributed to the problem?

The Center for Disease Control came out with a new infographic that is jaw dropping – but not in a good way. The May 23rd Daily News article titled, “Fast food burgers have tripled in size since the 1950s: CDC graphic,” reports the latest in a recent onslaught of news highlighting out-of-control portion sizes and weight problems in America.

According to the recent CDC study, in the 1950s typical fast-food burger weighed just 3.9 ounces. Now, it’s 12 ounces, which is three times larger today then it was 50 years ago. Another great stat that the CDC discovered is that an average order of fries has grown from 2.4 ounces to 6.7 ounces. Shocking right? But, the biggest shocker of the study is centered around sodas. The study reported that today, people drink 42-ounce sodas, which is up from the comparatively skimpy 7-ounce soda pours people got at fast-food restaurants in the ’50s. Now, that data has quite an impact!

Check out the new infograpich below. And be sure to check back for more foodservice industry news updates.
