The awards follow SnackNation’s recently announced expanded offering (which includes third wave coffee and tea service, fresh fruit, bulk snacks, and classic snacks from some of the world’s most iconic brands), and the launch of the SnackNation App, a new digital experience that enables SnackNation members to optimize their office curations by seamlessly collecting real-time feedback from their employees.

“We were humbled by the response to last year’s awards,” said SnackNation CEO and co-founder Sean Kelly. “Brands know that as the only snack award powered by proprietary data from real offices across the country, winning a SnackNation Insights Award means your product truly resonated with consumers. This year we’re back with even more sophisticated Insights, powered by the new SnackNation App, which helps our Members improve curations while providing brands with the intelligence they need to make smarter, faster decisions.”
