Barilla teams up with U.S. Ski Team’s Mikaela Shiffrin

BY CSA STAFF

BANNOCKBURN, Ill. — Italian food company Barilla has partnered with the U.S. Ski Team’s Mikaela Shiffrin, who will don the Barilla logo on her helmet.

The 17-year-old recently secured third place at the slalom in Levi, Finland, and is considered a serious contender for the World Cup Nov. 24, in Aspen, Colo., as well as the 2014 Olympic games to be held in Sochi, Russia.

"We are excited to be working with such an incredibly talented athlete," said Giannella Alvarez, Barilla Americas Group president. "Mikaela is an inspiration to all of us, and we hope our partnership will inspire others to lead healthier, more active lifestyles, whether that’s skiing down mountains or jogging around the neighborhood or eating wholesome foods."

Part of the young athlete’s diet consists of complex carbohydrates and high-protein foods. Shiffrin eats Barilla Whole Grain Plus and other such varieties to fulfill her nutritional needs for training.

"I am very excited to be working with a family-owned company like Barilla," says Mikaela Shiffrin. "In my opinion eating some complex carbohydrates before a workout can really enhance my muscle performance and endurance when I’m training, and give my brain the fuel it needs to keep plugging away at schoolwork."

Shiffrin is also keeping a Tumblr Travel Log at www.Barilla.com/mikaelashiffrin.

The company’s top 15 brands collectively produced organic sales growth of 4.6%, led by Heinz, Quero, ABC, Classico, Golden Circle, Master and Ore-Ida brands. Global Ketchup delivered organic sales growth of 5% thanks to a strong performance in U.S., Brazil and Russia.

"Heinz delivered solid results while making significant investments in our businesses and brands to drive growth," said Chairman, President and CEO William R. Johnson. "Notably, Heinz delivered its 30th consecutive quarter of organic sales growth, led by our trio of growth engines: Emerging Markets, Global Ketchup and the Company’s Top 15 Brands."

Although total sales advanced a nominal .5% to $2.83 billion during the second quarter ended October 28, earnings per share increased 11.1%, including charges for productivity initiatives, to 90 cents. Excluding the charges earnings grew 22.3%.

The company’s stable of powerful brands helped produce strong growth in emerging markets where sales increased 13.2% and now account for 23% of the company’s total sales.

"Heinz remains on track to deliver our previously announced sales and profit outlook for Fiscal 2013," Johnson said. The company expects to produce full year sales growth of 4%, earnings per share growth between 5% and 8% and free cash flow of more than $1 billion.
