    Megatrends have significant impacts on our eating habits, bswp. what we eat due to individualization, neo-ecology and health, as well as how we eat through social changes such as mobility, new work and connectivity. Snacks & treats have become an indispensable part of our urban, mobile and, above all, individual everyday culture. More than that: they are about to completely erode our classic meal system. But as our lifestyles change, so too do our needs for snacks and treatments. In the future, it will be a matter of seeing pleasure and conscience as an inseparable pair, since factors such as health and sustainability will become increasingly important for the consumer of tomorrow, even if he/she treats himself/herself to "something sweet".
