SNAC International announces new dates for #SNAXPO 2021: the most valued trade show and convention devoted exclusively to the international snacking industry will now be held August 22-24, 2021 in Charlotte, NC. This new date supersedes the March 28-30 dates announced earlier this year.

“We are pleased to announce the return of SNAXPO,” said Elizabeth Avery, President and CEO of SNAC International. “Industry executives consistently tell us this is one of the most important events on their calendar, and it was sorely missed this year. So, we have developed a plan to bring the snack industry together, safely, in-person to help its companies and its leaders develop the products, marketing strategies and supply chain solutions that help them win with consumers.”

SNAC Cast Episode 6 available NOW! Paving the Way Forward: Reimagining Salty Snacks with Kristy Lewis, Founder & CEO, Quinn Snacks. Kristy Lewis always cooked popcorn on the stove with parmesan, rosemary, maple syrup and sea salt. Even though she enjoyed cooking it, she wanted the convenience of popping it in the microwave. When she was on maternity leave for her first child Quinn, she began experimenting until she created her beloved company by the same name — Quinn Snacks. With her “first to market” mindset, Lewis reinvented microwaveable popcorn using simple ingredients and paper packaging, all while raising three children: https://lnkd.in/d6TSTxq

We applaud Frito-Lay parent, PepsiCo, for it’s extraordinary leadership and commitment to addressing systemic racism and inequality in the U.S. Yesterday, PepsiCo announced the next step in the company’s journey for racial equality: a more than $400 million set of initiatives over five years to lift up Black communities and to increase Black representation at PepsiCo. These initiatives comprise a holistic effort for PepsiCo to be held accountable as a leading corporation and to help address the need for systemic change. A few of the company’s ambitions include: increasing PepsiCo’s Black manager population by 30%, implementing mandatory unconscious bias training, investing $50 million in Black-owned small businesses and doubling spending with Black-owned suppliers to $350 million. “The time is always right to do what is right.” #BlackLivesMatter
