Webinar: Break and bite

Posted in: Webinars

Imagine a snack-sized RFI!

Imagine breaking off and sharing pieces of something like a Kit Kat or Toblerone snack bar… made of savory ingredients instead of sweet. If you can, check out this snack-sized RFI, and share your ideas for ingredients and production. We’re looking for a new savory snack experience capable of being broken apart into uniform pieces.

The key is to create a uniformly shaped savory snack that consumers can break into bite-sized portions and enjoy alone or share with others. The challenge of this RFI is to identify a suitable product and production method for a savory snack that creates an eating experience similar to snacks such as Kit Kat, Hershey bars, or Toblerone, yet different enough so as to be novel and non-obvious.

Requirements for the solution include:

  • Must be savory
  • Can take a variety of shapes and sizes, but it is critical that each unit be identical, to enable stacking and efficient packaging. Uniformity of size and shape will also help protect the snack during packaging and shipping
  • Breakable by the consumer yet should resist breaking during transport

Description of the production and packaging process should be part of the solution. Ideally, the snack should be producible on existing equipment to minimize capital expenditures.

On August 2, 2018, Xinova RFI Manager, Jason Guo hosted a webinar to describe the problem being addressed and the scope of the Break and Bite RFI.
