Snacks Gotcha Tongue? What Consumers are Craving More Than Traditional Meals.

Snacks are probably taking over your dinner table as “the greatest Modern American pastime”, since “19% of all foodservice occasions in 2016 were snacks,” according to Nation’s Restaurant News. This occasion has opened the door to new bite-size options that are more diverse, more convenient, and even more difficult to turn down. Snacking has grown to be unconventional and it greatly impacts consumer consumption trends. So, what was once perceived as an occasion that would “ruin your appetite” right before a meal is now enjoyed as a meal substitute for any time of the day…or night.

Consumers are shifting away from large traditional meals and are focused on new food concepts that can be easily transported, easily consumed, and even shared with friends. This demand amplifies the importance of the grab n’ go growth packaging segment, as consumption behavior is now influenced by snacking styles that support convenience.

Genpak’s convenient packaging enables portability and easy preparation & consumption.
