The snack food industry has grown exponentially in the past several years. The demand for diverse snack food options is being driven by the US "convenience culture", seeking quick "grab-and-go" food & beverage options.
Many companies are capitalizing on this culture shift in addition to consumer interest in food ingredient labels (and what it means to be "healthy") by providing new snack brands and new concepts to satisfy a more health-conscious, "on-the-go" public.
Clean label, nutritional snacks with "easy to understand" ingredients that taste good and hit a specific price point can be challenging to many food scientists and developers. In addition to a pipeline of ingredients for the snack industry, Brisan's snack food consultants help guide developers in making ingredient and formulation decisions — aiding companies with the development and scale-up of clean label snack SKU's.
