Snacking consumption has been on the rise for a few years now, but the most significant growth has come in the past two years. The proportion of consumers snacking everyday grew from 76% in 2014 to 83% in 2016, according to the Technomic “2016 Snacking Occasion Consumer Trend Report”.
The definition of snack is expanding, driven by the accelerating pace of consumers’ lifestyles, the increasing number of smaller households – allowing more flexibility on meal times and sizes, and the increasing perception of snacking, also described as grazing, as part of a healthy diet. The evolution of traditional consumption habits is an opportunity for food operators to offer tasty and nutritious products in portable formats, which make them easier to enjoy on go.
While the chefs concentrate on creating savoury meals with new flavours and textures, Sabert focuses on how to showcase them in the most elegant and practical manner. The Sabert Grab&Go collection is a great example of how packaging innovation meets food trends to provide packaging that is truly fit for purpose. The sleek and upscale design of the range is well suited for any application, from gourmet style sandwiches, healthy bagels or snacks, to sushi or desserts.
The bases come in various shapes and sizes and are made of bagasse, a material made from sugar cane pulp that is 100% compostable.
