NATURESWEET: Not quite a club pack, but more than a traditional dry pint, has proved to be a sweet spot with consumers, says Mike Joergensen, marketing director for NatureSweet Tomatoes. The company’s latest pack, a 24-ounce, was originally intended to be a quick in-and-out special for retailers, but many are keeping it in stock because it offers a desirable size in between what’s currently available. “We’ve seen very little — if any — cannibalization of our other sizes in favor of these,” he says.
