Snacking ‘middle ground’: Thailand’s MUNCHHH on balancing health and indulgence for innovation

Thai healthy snacking brand MUNCHHH has developed an award-winning range of snacks based on what it has termed the ‘middle ground’ of snacking, with a priority on balancing health and indulgence to keep consumers coming back for more.

MUNCHHH was developed by Thai firm Balance Corp, which has an eventual objective of creating various healthy snacking solutions with a balance between being both delicious and healthy.

“We are looking to be in that middle ground of snacking between snacks that solely focus on being delicious, such as Lay’s potato chips, and products that focus on being healthy, such as supplements or nutritional replacements,” ​Balance Corp Founder Norawee Bussadeegarn ​told FoodNavigator-Asia​.

Food in the ‘Fusion Era’: Guilt-free options and hyperlocalisation key for food firms in travel retail

Food firms active in the travel retail market will need to increase focus on providing consumers with guilt-free options produced via a hyperlocal supply chain to increase their chances of survival and growth in a rapidly evolving post-COVID-19 era.

The travel retail market was amongst the most sectors most heavily hit by the COVID-19 pandemic over the past two years due to various closed borders and travel bans being implemented worldwide, but in recent months the industry in APAC has reported healthy recovery across the board as regional and international borders started opening, including for foods and beverages.

“International Air Transport Association (IATA) figures for February this year have shown good grounds for optimism [with] global traffic having recovered to more than half its pre- pandemic level at minus 45.5% versus February 2019,”​ Tax Free World Association (TFWA) President Erik Juul-Mortensen said at the recent TFWA Asia Pacific Live event in Singapore.
