CHEESE and meat-based nibbles are the new kids on the snack block according to Kerry Foods. The company, which reckons it has alternatives to crisps and nuts in its LowLow, Mattessons, Cheestrings and Wall’s ranges, says consumers’ changing lifestyles mean they’re looking for new types of snack.
And Mintel reports that 44% of consumers are interested in buying high-protein products.
“Increasingly hectic lifestyles are driving demand for convenient snacks that can be consumed anywhere,” said customer marketing controller Richard Tyler.
“But with over 70% of consumers regularly missing one meal a day, there is also a growing desire for healthier, more satisfying snacking solutions.”
