Nutrimental ranked first in the Brazil snak bars market with a 33% value share in 2012. The company was a pioneer in the category and has a wide distribution network. Despite fierce competition, Nutrimental increased its value share between 2007 and 2012, due to constant innovations in terms of new flavours and expansion into small grocery stores. Recent launches include new versions of light granola/muesli bars and Nutry Ativa, the first functional snack bar, which promises to improve intestinal function, and was launched in 2011.
The category saw value growth of 24% in 2012, which was slightly superior to the CAGR of 22% registered during the 2007-2012 period. Volume growth of 15% in 2012 was marginally below the CAGR between 2007
