Snacks are fast and convenient foods usually consumed between the main meals. The snacks category has experienced significant global growth in recent years, driven by food preference changes, the adoption of more active and busier lifestyles, and the increasing demand for healthy, natural snacks that offer indulgence and convenience.
Reduced sugar, fat, sodium, and plant-based and alternative-protein snacks are becoming increasingly popular. However, indulgence is still an essential factor driving innovation in that category, with brands launching products that combine indulgence with healthy, functional ingredients.
