State of the Snack Food Industry & Outlook

About This Webinar

The US snack foods industry continues to evolve at a rapid pace. With consumers snacking more frequently, leaning towards a plant-forward diet, and adopting a healthy indulgence mindset, snack food manufacturers have shifted their corporate strategies to take advantage of these changing trends. Kellogg’s announcement of the company splitting into 3 segments (i.e., snacking, cereal, and plant-based) and Mondelez’s acquisition announcement of Clif Bar are some current examples of how these forces are impacting the industry.

What can we expect in the 2nd half of 2022 and beyond? What specific snacking categories (e.g., bakery, confectionary, salty, functional, better for you, etc.) will likely define the industry in the months and years to come? What can we glean from the recent announcements from Kellogg’s and Mondelez, and what future transactions can we expect from other major players?

These are just some of the questions that will be addressed in this webinar, sponsored by City National Bank an RBC Company. Nik Modi, Managing Director with RBC Capital Markets, and Shahe Kassardjian, Managing Director with City National Bank's Food & Beverage Group, will be providing their insights in this Food Institute-exclusive State of the Snack Food Industry & Outlook webinar.
