At this year's Winter Fancy Food Show, Gaea unveiled a new line of lightly picked, shelf-stable convenience snacks that are entirely plant-based. Although better-for-you snacks remain top-of-mind for health-conscious consumers, the last year in particular has seen a heightened demand for plant-based snacks that are incredibly rich in whole fruits and vegetables. Gaea's all-new snacks made with gherkins, carrots and cauliflower offer a satiating new alternative that is free from preservatives and made with only natural ingredients.

Inside the snack pouches, the vegetables are enhanced with pickled marinades of extra virgin olive oil and other flavorful ingredients like lemon essential oil, sea salt, garlic and coriander.

A growing number of consumers are looking to replace their go-to unhealthy chips, sticks and puff snacks with alternatives that are pre-packaged, highly flavorful and ideal for on-the-go eating.
