Research and Markets: UK Snack Foods Market Update 2015

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2btqgw/uk_snack_foods) has announced the addition of the "UK Snack Foods Market Update 2015" report to their offering.

This market update analyses the UK market for snack foods. In particular, the report will focus on bagged savoury snacks, such as potato crisps and nuts, sold at supermarkets and convenience stores in the UK.

Snacks are primarily defined as small-portion foodstuffs eaten outside the three main meals of breakfast, lunch and dinner. Despite this, the consumption of snacks as part of a meal, especially a packed lunch, is an increasingly popular means of penetration.

Market Sectors

The snack foods market in the UK can be divided into the following three sectors:

- Potato crisps

- Snack nuts

- Other savoury snacks - including popcorn, rice- and corn-based snacks, Bombay mix and mini pretzels, as well as new, innovative snack products to cater to a healthier audience, such as high-protein lentil and egg white crisps, kale crisps and those made from alternative root vegetables, including sweet potato, beetroot and parsnips.

It should be noted that while the focus of the sector is on savoury snacks, both sweet and salty popcorn variants are covered within this report.
