A merger of markets: how are brands positioning themselves?
An increase in consumer awareness/interest in health and nutrition has led to increased diversification of the snacking market. With many brands trying to enter this market, there are many product propositions, all targeting different ingredients, claims and nutritional profiles. In this dynamic market, products maintain a focus on ingredients, claims and nutritional profiles.
This report explores how the changes in consumer demand have diversified the snacking market but also led to merging/similarities across all product types (with an increased focus on active/lifestyle nutrition and a movement away from traditional snack bar propositions e.g. sports bars, cereal bars).
