I’ve long felt that the food industry presents the best of all worlds. Tradition holds considerable strength in food. A handful of cornerstone companies continue to drive the lion’s share of revenue across snack and bakery.
I have a former boss who used to say that whatever food a consumer liked, chances are they would like it even more if it were topped with cheese. Considering all of its dairy splendor, it’s no wonder that cheese is big business.
Some snack categories today are tough to crack. According to data from IRI, Chicago, dollar sales in the crackers category during the 52 weeks ending September 4, 2016 rose 0.98 percent to reach $7.4 billion.
