5×5: Snacks

5×5 is a new feature highlighting product innovation in the snack category. Five snack companies from Startup Street and new exhibitors to Sweets & Snacks Expo will present their innovative new products to a panel of retailers. Retailers will provide their insights, and you’ll learn what it will take for a new product to make it to the retail shelf. Each company will have up to five minutes to share their new product’s story. Attendees can cheer on the participants and learn valuable feedback and tips from snack buyers and category managers. It’s fun. It’s fast. It’s 5×5!
