A recent study (by The Future Brand “The Future of Food“) shows how the concept of nutrition is constantly evolving, as well as consumer habits and behaviors, pushing companies and brands to innovate processes and offerings to meet new needs.
The history of food is equal to that of man and with him varies and mute. This is witnessed by the evolution of the definition of the term itself over the centuries: from a simple source of nourishment, food also becomes medicine, a resource that heals and heals. Then it turns into an element of pleasure and exaltation of the taste experience. Today, the idea of food is linked to the concept of balance between taste and health for a perfect diet.
Today more than ever, consumers decide which brands to trust. It’s a trend that has been going on for some years now, and recently we see a concrete and objective awareness on the part of people towards their needs and also their rights. The demand for transparency can no longer be disregarded. Consumers compare and advise each other. They also ask that brands take a stand on important issues, issues ranging from food safety, to respect for the environment up to current political issues.
It is interesting to note that in addition to the “comfort” related to simplicity and speed of purchase and consumption, what determines the preference for one product over another is the quality. Increasingly popular in modern consumers is the motto that says “we are what we eat“; this applies to both the body and the mind. This is why many brands have decided to create products that are good for our bodies and our mood.
The above research shows that the consumer is willing to pay more for products that have better intrinsic quality and/or are offered through better service.
Quality, food safety, and health are three closely related elements that are intertwined in the broader concept of “Food integrity“: healthy, safe and traceable food produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. To raise public awareness and promote the culture of healthy and safe food, the United Nations General Assembly has also proclaimed 7 June as World Food Safety Day since 2018
