State of Snacking

This session provides Sweets & Snacks Expo’s perennial view of the macro-snacking universe and occasions from a shopper, consumer and retailer perspective. Circana will focus on the recent performance of the U.S. snacking industry and the keys to future snacking success. Lyons Wyatt will look at how snacking trends are changing and the key generational shifts driving the future of snacking.  Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of the considerations on when and how consumers snack choices differ by generation; how inflation, package size changes, social media, product innovations, and out-of-home experiences are changing snacking; and what the top drivers of category success will be moving forward.
