Global Organic Snacks Industry: Explore the Variety of Products

The market for organic snacks has been steadily growing as consumers are increasingly opting for naturally sourced and nutrient-rich snacks. Snacks that are classified as organic are foods that have been produced without the use of synthetic ingredients like artificial colors, fertilizers, pesticides, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and only been made with certified organic ingredients. Organic snacks, such as candy bars, salty snacks, nuts, and bakery items like pretzels, pancakes, bagels, and cookies, are widely available and can provide essential nutrients like protein, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. These nutrients can help to maintain energy levels, boost the immune system, promote heart health, and increase overall nutrient intake. The production of organic snacks involves organic farming methods, making them a more natural and environmentally friendly option compared to conventional snacks. Therefore, consuming organic snacks can be a healthier and more sustainable choice.

According to a recent report by Allied Market Research, the global organic snacks market is anticipated to display a notable CAGR from 2018 to 2025.

In 2019, the National Organic Program (NOP), which is the regulatory body of the US government, released a final rule regarding flavors that are certified organic. According to the OTA (Organic Trade Association), there are more than 4,500 organic flavors available in the US. The current economic growth is being bolstered by several factors such as the increased demand for environmentally sustainable products by consumers, the ease of purchasing through online platforms, and the growing purchasing power of consumers. Since the COVID-19 outbreak in January 2020, there has been a surge in demand for small-sized salty and healthy food products. As per the US Snack Index released by Frito-Lay in January 2020, 48 percent of those surveyed claimed to feel happy after consuming their preferred flavored snack, while 85 percent stated they felt normal. Furthermore, a significant 92 percent of Americans intend to continue consuming their favored snacks even after the pandemic subsides. Interestingly, most consumers, particularly those belonging to Gen Z and millennials, are willing to experiment with new products. Thus, it is expected that the popularity of organic snacks will continue to grow even post-pandemic.
