Jim Anderko with Venus Wafers Discusses New Products at Winter Fancy Food 2018

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

February is arguably my favorite month—winter is in full-swing, with the promise of warm breezes right around the bend. This month, in particular, lends itself to soup cravings, and nothing goes better with soup than a cracker that offers both delicious taste and textured variety.

Venus Wafers Mariner Organic Saltines

Taking a moment to chat with me at Winter Fancy Food Show was Jim Anderko, Vice President of Sales at Venus Wafers, who filled me in on all the new happenings at Venus Wafers, including its Mariner Organic Saltines and Mariner Rosemary and Olive Oil Water Crackers.

Jim Anderko, Vice President of Sales, Venus Wafers“The Mariner Organic Saltines and the Mariner Rosemary and Olive Oil Water Crackers are certified organic, non-GMO project certified, vegan verified, and kosher approved,” Jim tells me, before explaining the packaging’s signature look. “Our Mariner packages have a ribbon on the top like the sail on a ship.”

While consumers can look for the familiar flag in the store, Jim expands upon the cross-merchandising opportunities that the Mariner crackers offer. Soups, salads, and more—these crackers jump in on most dishes with seamless effort, with flavors that pair with any palate.
