Questions about snacking trends, healthy ingredients, sustainable production and insects are among the topics raised by delegates ahead of the Food Manufacture Group’s free, one-hour webinar at 3pm on Thursday June 15. What questions will you ask?

We invited delegates to subit questions about sustainable snacking to our expert panel for their consideration during the online seminar​. A list of the 10 most popular questions appears in the box below.

Three experts will be answering selected questions subitted in advance and live during their webinar presentations.

Taking part will be Lu Ann Williams, director of innovation at Innova Market Insights, Sebastian Emig, president of the European Snacks Association (ESA) and Danielle Veenstra, senior sustainability specialist with webinar sponsor Almond Board of California (ABC).

Hot snacking trends

Innova’s director of innovation will profile the hot snacking trends for 2017 and beyond.

The ESA president will deliver insights into the continent’s savoury snacks market, valued at about €14bn in 2014. He will also cover the progress made by manufacturers on the healthy reformulation of nearly 1.85Mt of savoury snack products purchased each year.

Consumers’ evolving demands

ABC’s sustainability specialist will explain how the California almond industry is implementing sustainable growing practices, based on years of research and innovation, in response to consumers’ evolving demands.

After registering for his or her free place​, anyone can put a question to our expert panel for their consideration at the end of the one-hour webinar, which starts at 3pm London time on Thursday June 15.
