The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has transformed snacking. Portability, on-the-go and social occasions were disrupted by quarantine orders and distancing efforts. Sales in emerging markets – which are uniquely dependent on out-of-home occasions – and in categories like snack bars, mints and gum, all struggled with these shifts. At the same time, categories like savoury snacks, cookies or ice cream saw sales surge as stuck-at-home consumers turned to snacks for comfort and indulgence or for family movie nights.

It has become something of a cliché to state that the pandemic has accelerated pre-existing trends, but when it comes to US internal migration, this statement could not be more accurate. Retailers must plan for a future in which suburban consumers constitute an expanding share of their customer base if they wish to succeed in the 21st century.
