Presentation Title: Nurturing the Next Big Thing in Savoury Snacks: Market Trends and Future Prospects
Description: Whilst packaged food performance has been rather dismal in Western Europe, savoury snacks have shown a strong growth over the last few years outperforming other snack products such as confectionery, ice cream and sweet biscuits. Among other factors, the rise in savoury snacks sales has been pushed by the rising popularity of protein-rich variants such as nuts, seeds and trail mixes and non-potato-based snacks, including vegetable and pulse chips.
In her presentation, ‘Nurturing the Next Big Thing in Savoury Snacks: Market Trends and Future Prospects’, Euromonitor International’s senior snacks expert, Pinar Hosafci, will examine the latest trends and innovation in snacks. With a specific focus on savoury snack products, Pinar’s talk will use a range of case studies to highlight which direction the market is heading to and what the future holds for European snack manufacturers.
