Snack foods encompass processed and packaged food items that often serve as a convenient source of calories between meals and a means of satisfying a craving for savory tastes. Compared to foods typically eaten during breakfast, lunch, and dinner, processed snack foods require little or no preparation and facilitate on-the-go consumption. Demand for snack foods in the U.S. is majorly driven by the increase in population and disposable personal income levels. The industry is also impacted by mandates from government agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The U.S. net exports of snack foods amounted to over USD 2.5 billion and growing with a growth rate of 10% annually. In addition, the country is a major producer and exporter of nuts, particularly almonds owing to the large part to significant land resources and suitable growing conditions. Nuts are one of the most expensive types of snack food, helping the country to command a substantial share of export value.

On the other hand, in 2017, Canada accounted for over 25% of US snack imports, followed by Mexico, Vietnam, China, and Germany. Chocolate represented the leading product among snack food imports, accounting for significant revenue share. Moreover, these products are readily available in vending machines and grab-and-go retail outlets such as convenience stores and gas stations, supporting the product demand significantly.
