Drive appeal with organic claims
“Organic” is more than a buzzword; consumers perceive organic products to have been made responsibly, sustainably and safely.
As "natural" claims proliferate, today's consumers have become more skeptical about their credibility — and look to organic certifications such as USDA Organic as the gold standard of trust, traceability and transparency in their foods. But delivering the eating experiences and organic label claims consumers seek has challenges, from recipe development and processing hurdles to extracting the consumer insights that matter most.
