Snacks is one of the widest, most diverse and one of the fastest moving categories in which we work, encompassing everything from nuts & seeds to chocolate & confectionary, crisps, popcorn and cereal bars. We’ve a proven track record of working within those more ‘traditional’ product lines and helping brands like Nakd stay one step ahead of food trends with braver, more innovative flavours, better mouthfeel and healthier products.
More recently, we’ve been able to turn our skills to reflect more current trends, including the massive lift in sports nutrition bars and the growing trend in CBD or plant-based products. Take a look below to find out more or get in touch if you’ve any questions.

CASE STUDY: FLAVOURED FRUIT PIECES
Working with our in-house team of experts, we’ve developed an extensive range of flavoured fruit pieces which we’re able to use in many parts of the snack and bakery sectors.
For example, working with one UK-based snack manufacturer, I.T.S. developed a range of ‘Flavour Boosters’ aimed at reducing the cost of fruit-based bag snacks.
More premium fruits such as blueberry and cranberry can significantly increase the cost of bagged snacks when used at a recognisable inclusion. But by creating blueberry, cranberry and red berry flavoured sultanas and raisins, we were able to help maintain the flavour quality and profile while reducing the amount of premium fruit the company needed to include – and so helped them control their costs.
