The Snack Food Industry in India is a booming sector in the FMCG Industry. Over the years, consumer consumption patterns have evolved and have given rise to people being more conscious about healthy snacking habits.

There are a number of strategic challenges that the Industry faces when it comes to entering the fast-growing game. Consumers are more aware of their options and attuned to healthy eating habits and what goes into their food. This increasing consumer consciousness has resulted in them focusing on sustainability and indulging in snacks that are manufactured after considering all safety precautions. The choice of their snack is no more dependent only on taste, but consumers also consider their packaging and its impact on themselves, others, and the planet as a whole.

Many brands are working towards different packaging options, innovations meeting the utmost hygiene standards, and much more. When it comes to packaging, the manufacturer must select a printer that caters to the audience’s mindset.
