FOOD VISION 2017

gil-horsky-food-vision

March 2017 – London, UK

I have been invited as a key speaker Early March ’17 at London’s Food Vision 2017 , which is a forum for industry leaders in the Food Industry. During this forum, leading, marketing, business strategy and research and development specialists will debate key industry issues, such as sustainable growth and profitability in the modern nutrition, food and drink markets. My presentation topic would be “Small snack, big ask. What consumers want from the snacks sector.

Small snack, big ask. What consumers want from the snacks sector

A moment of indulgence, an energy boost, a shared experience or a re-fuel on the move – consumers have increasingly high – and varied – expectations of the snacks that have become such a big part of their lives.  They’re making a big ask of a small meal but, unless food manufacturers respond with innovation, they’ll see their market share disappear in bite-size chunks.  My innovation agenda on some of the world’s most iconic chocolate brands,  is driven by the consumer trends I will share at this event, along with examples of responsive innovation from developed and emerging markets.

  • Mission Nutrition: From the addition of functional ingredients to catering for health conditions and intolerances, snack companies must meet consumers’ wellness agenda
  • Pure Pleasure: From chocolate inhalers to lollipop cakes, why clever producers are turning ‘snacks’ into ‘experiences’ that enliven and enrich
  • Social Snacks: Why consumers don’t want to snack alone and how sharing and personalization can turn snacking into a social activity
  • Instant Everywhere: Buy-on-the-go lifestyles demand new retail and vending formats that make snack buying instant, affordable and fun
