Summary
The market for meat snacks has been characterized for a long time by saturation, minimal innovation, and a mass market approach based around heavily processed, cheap and unhealthy products. However, the rising interest in protein-driven and ancient (paleo) diets has created a new lease of life in the category as a premium market for more artisanal, creative, and healthy meat snacks has emerged.

Key Findings
- EPIC Provisions was established in 2013 by Taylor Collins and Katie Forrest. As competitive athletes and former vegans, they were seeking to develop products that offered a convenient way of adding nutritious animal protein to their diets. They sought to market a natural, authentic, premium meat snack that would be original in the marketplace.

- EPIC demonstrated that it was possible to leverage the tired meat snack category and, within it, develop an entirely new natural sub-category. This underlines the possibility of breaking with clichés and low expectations associated with jerky and generating premiumization opportunities.

- EPIC has also demonstrated that such products can be leveraged to become part of, and exemplify, a lifestyle (i.e. the paleo diet approach) that is not only seen as healthy but is also contemporary and aspirational (having educated middle-class appeal). The lesson for others is that protein-strong meat snacks can transcend their low-rent past and be revitalized in the present market.
