Key Market Trends

Growing Popularity for Meat-based Snacks

With the growing consumer awareness regarding healthy snacking habits, consumers are looking for something that has more substance or staying power than chips and candies. This makes way for the inclusion of protein-rich snacks, such as lean beef or turkey, in a regular diet, which, in turn, enables the players in the market to come up with more meat-based snacking options.

Traditionally, meat snacks were typically carried in convenience stores, but as more consumers demanded healthier and leaner snacks, the more the retail channels are selling them. High market penetration and growing consumer demand for meat snacks are expected to drive the overall demand for savory snacks.
