Snacks as a meal? Eating behaviour trends

The significance of snacks regarding today's eating behaviour has increased significantly. The fast pace of everyday life is increasingly breaking down the classic eating behaviour comprising of fixed mealtimes.

A smoothie and a muesli bar for breakfast, dried fruits and nuts as a replacement for lunch and an energy bar after practising sport...

It is no surprise that the snacking trend goes hand in hand with the high quality demands of the consumers. Because snacks are frequently a fixed part of people's diets. In addition to fruit or vegetable-based snacks, meat and fish snacks are used to round off a meal.

Make sure your product line-up is aligned to accommodate this - countless exhibitors at ISM Cologne offer the appropriate trend products!
