Quality snack packaging makes the difference.

Preference for packaged snacks is on the rise! While travelling, rather than buy a samosa at the station, people are opting for a sealed pack of savouries. In urban homes, with mothers short of time, it’s not always possible to prepare fresh, home-made snacks for children to carry to school. Packaged wafers or Namkeen offer a convenient solution.

Taste, variety, hygiene, convenience and increasing market penetration complemented by changing lifestyles and growing disposable incomes have taken the Indian snack industry places. People are shifting from local shop products like samosa, kachori, handmade Namkeen, etc. to packaged products made in a controlled environment and packed hygienically.

As per Agro & Food Processing, some 300 types of savories are sold in this country and overall snack product market (inclusive of sweetmeats) is estimated at Rs.25,000 crore. The Indian Food Industry is one of the fastest growing segments in Indian economy, and within the food sector, the RTE including Namkeen & Mithai hold the biggest share. The branded segment is increasing at the rate of 25 per cent/annum, and has the maximum value addition, not just in monetary terms but also at adding shelf life to the product or ensuring that there is reach from Farm to Fork.
