Dairy Industry Advisory Group Points To Snack Food Sector As Potential Profit Source

September 6, 2010: 10:19 PM EST

A white paper from a dairy industry group urges dairy companies to take a close look at snack foods as a potential profit source. Calcium-rich dairy products account for only 13 percent of between-meal snack choices among people two years old and older. The white paper urges food manufacturers to “re-imagine” snacks with dairy-derived ingredients to take advantage of the virtually unlimited possibilities for innovation. Especially compelling is the fact that healthy snacks comprise more than half of all “snacking occasions:” a total of 850 million annually. According to the white paper, “Snacking is now viewed as helping contribute to moderation and balance in eating, which naturally aligns with dairy’s nutritious profile.” To gain a greater share of snack sales, dairy formulators need to solve refrigeration and portability problems.
