Snacking growth: Hain Celestial acquires That’s How We Roll, Agthia Group completes BMB Group purchase

Dec 14, 2021

The healthy snacking space has been brimming with innovation over this last year, prompted by consumer demand for cleaner and more natural offerings and propelled by a growing popularity in snacking in general as people stay indoors due to lockdown measures as well as increased working from home. According to Innova Market Insights, concerns over high preservatives and artificial coloring in certain versions are prominent drivers in this space. The market researcher underscores that the influx of vegan-friendly formulas, functional cranberry delights, upcycled fruit snacks, organic ranges, luxurious choices, beverages-inspired tastes (caffe latte, Matcha tea), and wine-infused preparations are supporting the NPD.
