According to market researchers GlobalData, one of the key trends in the wider snack category involves combining sweet and savoury flavours to create more interesting sensory profiles that succeed in capturing consumers attention. Floral and botanical flavours have been big for some time, and in 2019 a new crop of tropical and Latin American flavours can be seen crossing over into the versatile nut and snack segment, creating new opportunities for product creativity.
Gama have recently pointed to the innovative lime and chilli variation by Blue Diamond as a good example. Commending its relatively sophisticated flavour combination for a nut snack, this naturally cholesterol free product is said to be noteworthy thanks to its its on-trend flavour profile as well as its potential for curbing mid-afternoon snack cravings. Meet Blue Diamond Growers. at Stand S3-125 at the Dubai World Trade Centre on 17-21 February 2019.
