Win at the shelf with personalised health

Give consumers the health benefits they are looking for in their food and beverages

Consumers today are taking a proactive approach in maintaining their health

71% of them find it important to choose products that “positively boost my nutrition” or “benefit how my body functions”1. 47% of them use online or app-based services for personalised nutrition recommendations2. And 1 in 3 use food and beverage to manage a digestive health condition3.

“Is this item sugar-reduced?”, “I need fibre for digestion!”, “Zero calories? Perfect.”

Rather than looking for products that deliver overall health benefits, consumers now seek functional ingredients that can help them meet specific health goals. They want products that are “made for me”.

To win at the shelf, brands need to offer tailored solutions. They need to deliver products that offer the right mix of health benefits without overlooking taste AND overall eating experience.

This presents a huge opportunity for food and beverage manufacturers. Brands with consumer-preferred benefits like gut-health, sugar reduction, fat-free, and more will find themselves in the best possible position to build pricing resilience and drive business growth.

What exactly are consumers willing to pay more for? We take a closer look:

Consumers’ interest in health may be on the rise, but we mustn’t forget that taste remains the primary driver of purchase decisions4. Health, taste AND indulgence — consumers want them all. To meet their demands, brands must not only understand the nuances of healthy ingredients, but also balance them with taste, texture AND the overall eating experience. Now more than ever, food manufacturers need to Own the ANDSM.

Lead with labels

Half of global consumers check labels to see if products are nutritious, healthy, or good for wellness, and 61% of them agree that health claims or labels have a major influence on their purchasing decision. Product labels are a brand’s direct line of communication with consumers at the shelf. How they show up is especially crucial. A cohesive label strategy is therefore essential for capturing consumer attention at the shelf.
