Owing to the influx of immigrants, packaged food is becoming popular, as it complements their busy lifestyles. The city offers a plethora of snacking options and unique products in different local flavours.
People in Indore prefer home-made snacks and snacks made by local namkeen shops, as the general perception is that packaged foods are not authentic in taste. Some local and national players, including Aakash Namkeen, On Namkeen, Haldiram and Bikanervala, have customised their products to meet local taste preferences.
Snacking is a key culture in Indore, and people of all ages snack on a frequent basis. Local shops and street markets offer a wide variety of snacking options, with easy availability across the city. Some of the snacks are unique to Indore. Namkeen brands such as Aakash Namkeen and Om Namkeen have opened outlets which allow consumers to sit and enjoy namkeens of different varieties and flavours.
Indore’s love of snacking is evident from the increasing assortment of snacks. The city offers several snacking options including traditional mixtures, ratlami sev, achar sev, potato shev, tomato shev, garlic shev, dhaniya sev, etc. to choose from. The city has both packaged and unpackaged formats popular among consumers for snacks buying and enjoys a host of national and established regional players who offer the best of snacking choices.
Be it a glass of milk, lassi, milk shakes, curd, buttermilk, or paneer; a daily menu without any of these items is very unlikely in the city. There is a significant group of traditional consumers who still seek the unpackaged format when buying milk and paneer, whereas modern and busy professionals typically buy packaged milk, lassi, paneer and buttermilk for the convenience, high shelf life and ease it offers.
