Snack Food

A World of Innovation Awaits you at IBIE

Americans love their snacks. That’s good news for snack food producers, as discretionary incomes begin to rise again and consumers spend even more on their favorite munchies. By 2017, revenues will reach $32 billion a year—with much of the growth fueled by the evolving trend toward high-quality, health-conscious and premium-priced products. Snack food manufacturers who can meet the increasing demand for portion-controlled packaging, high fiber/whole grain options, low-fat and low-sodium snacks—as well as product portability and convenience—will reap the benefits of growing revenues, wider profit margins and increased brand loyalty. Are you equipped to take advantage of the opportunities? Make the most of them at IBIE 2016.
