Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/26/2014 -- Awareness of snack bars among Iranian consumers remained very low in 2013 as these products were not available in most retail outlets. Relatively high unit prices also made various consumers reluctant to switch from well known and affordable snacks such as chips/crisps, fruit, countlines and biscuits to snack bars. However, fruit bars, which are also known as lavashak and which have a long standing presence in Iran, have become increasingly popular especially among young consumers. Therefore, snack bars recorded total volume growth of 13% in 2013 which was significantly stronger than the review period CAGR of 8% and which indicates that this immature category has strong growth potential in Iran.
