Conscious snacking means meeting nutritional needs; adding functional benefits like increasing energy, controlling appetite and getting fortification from fibre, protein, vitamins, minerals and probiotics; but still providing guilt-free pleasure and indulgence. Can snacks really meet that criteria?
Moderated by BakeryandSnacks’ editor Gill Hyslop, the panellists include:
- Sebastian Emig, director general, European Snacks Association
- Mike Hughes, head of research and insight, FMCG Gurus
- Adrian Ling (aka The Vegan Willie Wonka), MD, Plamil Foods
For 60 minutes on 5 October 2021, the panellists will delve into what they understand about the consumer’s heightened focus on better-for-you snacking and the impact this is having on products long perceived to be high in fat, sugar and salt.
- Has COVID impacted the snackification trend?
- How does conscious consumerism fit into this?
- How is the industry stepping up to answer the demand for more diverse lifestyle choices?
What’s more, the webinar will explore the many technical challenges and whether it’s possible to reformulate treats to make them healthier, while keeping the ingredients list as simple as possible.
- Is industry going the route of reformulation to drop or swap ingredients or are they focusing on a completely new set of ingredients and recipes?
- What advice would you give to a small producer looking to capitalise on this trend?
- How do you see the healthy snacking trend evolving over the next decade?
Attendees will also be able to put their burning questions to the panel by submitting them upon registration.
