State of Snacking

Snacking has seen continued demand in some categories but also reduced demand in others given the economic conditions and hybrid working models that exist today. This session provides the Sweets & Snacks Expo’s perennial view of the macro-snacking universe and occasions from a shopper, consumer and retailer perspective. IRI will share insights on what is fueling growth categories, present ideas to turn declining categories around and find additional opportunities as consumers continue to settle into their new patterns of shopping and consumption.  

Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of the trends that are underlying snack choices and the latest consumer purchase dynamics; micro-snacking segments, as well as nutritional benefits resonating with consumers and poised for future growth; and suggested actions industry leaders can take to maximize growth.
