Description

Representing a wide variety of foods, the market for healthy snacks was valued at $29 billion in 2008. Sales grew by 17% from 2003-08 but there was zero growth in sales at inflation-adjusted prices. This report addresses issues of key concern to manufacturers, marketers, and distributors of healthy snack foods, including:

  • Which segments are growing or declining and what particular products or brands are shaping the current and future direction of these segments
  • How traditional products or ingredients are being used in a non-traditional way to create category-blurring items
  • Which products and segments are offering functional health benefits and additives such as Omega-3 and who are these attributes targeted toward
  • Which age and gender groups are willing to sacrifice taste for nutritional benefit and which group absolutely will not
  • How important healthfulness is to parents when choosing children’s snacks
  • How the economy is changing snacking choices
