Snacking is expected to grow – are you prepared?
Today, consumers demand quick solutions to eating, as long and busy workdays mean less time to enjoy a meal during the day. The tendency is expected to grow in the future, and research shows that the market for snacks is expected to grow with 6,3% from 2017 to 2026 globally (Source: CAGR. Fact.MR 2017). This calls for snacks and smaller meals that can be eaten on the run, urging food manufacturers and food packaging manufacturers to action. Consumers as well as retailers look for snacking solutions that cater to these demands, while conforming to new legislation that applies to food packaging for on-the-go consumption.
