COMPETITION Top Snack Food Brands Worldwide, 2010

Tostitos top competitors from the snack category include other products that fall under the Frito Lay company: Lays, Doritos, and Cheetos. These brands are also advertised frequently and around the same time periods as Tostitos. They also appeal to social gatherings.

Frito Lay has numerous promotions and brand extensions this year that could decrease sales for Tostitos by customers switching to other new products. Doritos is a threat to Tostitos since they also fall under the tortilla chip category and they are reaching towards the hispanic market with Doritos Locos Tacos and partnering with Taco Bell.
