Where next for snacks? FoodNavigator-USA's Snacking Innovation Summit

If 50% of eating occasions are now snacks,* do we have to rethink what a snack is? An occasional treat or an everyday healthy indulgence? A fresh mini-meal? A quick energy boost? And when it comes to snacks, what new formats, flavors, label claims and ingredients are trending?   

In our free-to-attend online Snacking Innovation Summit on February 15, FoodNavigator-USA has brought together the founders of some of the fastest-growing snack brands in the business from Peeled Snacks to Dang Foods and Field Trip Jerky talk about evolving definitions of snacks, and health, what consumers are looking for and how retailers are thinking about where and how to merchandise snacks.

We'll also share some new SPINS data about exactly which snack sub-categories are growing, and which are declining.

REGISTER HERE  for the LIVE, free-to-attend online event, which is sponsored by Roquette  and Cambridge Commodities , and supported by Cargill  and the Almond Board of California . 


What are the fastest-growing snacks categories and what consumer trends are successful firms tapping into? Find out which snacks categories are growing, what consumers want and how retailers view the category.

The first 45 minutes will be moderated by FoodNavigator-USA editor Elaine Watson, while the final 15 minutes will be devoted to Q&A with our LIVE audience. 

  • Scott Fiesinger: Co-founder – Field Trip Jerky
  • Vincent Kitirattragarn: Co-founder and CEO – Dang Foods
  • Krik Angacian: Co-founder & CEO – ProFormance Foods (Protes)
  • Brad Barnhorn: Board member, Biena Foods, Rhythm Superfoods, Health Warrior
