  • Quantify the full spectrum of food and beverage consumption/preparation repertoires and ingredient behaviors.
  • Determine the co-incidences of weight management, food/dietary plans, exercise routines, reliance on coaches, programs, digital media with food and beverage behaviors.
  • Identify the life styles, attitudes, mindsets, emotions and meta segmentations that drives the above behaviors.
  • Understand the degree to which choices are influenced by digital and other information sources.
  • Assess the impact of demographics and health status on H&W choices.


Consumer focus on food and beverage “health profiles” is just beginning to catch on in the mainstream – with the trend surely heading to its “tipping point” (nod to Malcolm Gladwell)! The companies who lead the charge in offering consumers a way to be healthy while continuing to enjoy the “feel good” flavors and experiences they crave will win. Knowing where to focus efforts is, arguably, the most important in a string of important strategic decisions you will need to make.
Recognizing current marketplace trends, this research initiative is specifically designed to help companies understand how to deliver on the "real" consumer wants, even in the face of negative perceptions of “bigness” and “processed”. The intended use of the results will be to help co-funders enhance and complement what they are currently bringing to market/developing and show how cross-functional areas (sales, marketing, R&D, etc.) can synergistically benefit as well.
