The confectionery sector cannot be too narrow-minded in the modern travel retail world.
As airlines cut in-flight meals, F&B outlets have risen to the challenge so much that some have called the sector “the new travel retail”. The power is still with the stores and brands, but this is an opportunity we must not miss. Quick reactions to emerging trends have been travel retail’s saving grace and no others present an opportunity this big.
Healthy, tasty products, from simple to luxury in price, which are easy to grab will help confectionery step into the gap created by airlines and secure a new piece of the market for the future.
