What you need to know

Focus on healthy snack options

Innovate in the space of healthy snacks as 88% of consumers eat while commuting. Offer healthy foods for snacks on-the-go. As 60% of consumers eat fruit on their commute, focus should be on fruit-based products. There's room for expansion in the biscuit category as 61% of consumers say they snack on cookies and 47% on chocolate.

Drive consumption of personal care on the move

Cross-sell personal care products to consumers who eat on-the-go. Offer products that are easy to use in adverse conditions like heat, traffic and pollution. As 37% of men are influenced by ads, advertisements and trial packs can be used to drive consumption of personal care products and make that consumption a part of daily life.

Combine on-the-go food with personal care

Leverage the familiarity of food products to cross-sell personal care products, which are currently at 64% consumption. Customise offerings as per the needs of consumer segments. Evolve distribution channels like kiosks and vending machines for easy availability of products - across food and beauty.
