Euromonitor International estimates that there is a least 7 years of gap between life expectancy and healthy life expectancy globally. A new term ‘active ageing’, is emerging with increasing interest to close the gap. Today’s consumers are willing to spend on products that reduce the signs of ageing and address concerns over health issues. Packaged food and beverage markets are also benefited by active ageing trend in Asia Pacific. Manufactures have already tapped into the trend and introduced new products targeting aging consumers and people who are interested in anti-aging.

Euromonitor International Helps Promote Brazil-US Trade

ApexBrazilHeader

Euromonitor International is excited to announce upcoming trade expos in Chicago and Houston to connect US importers, restaurants, grocers and food manufactures with leading Brazilian food and beverage exporters.  The goal of these events is to provide an opportunity for US companies to interact and conduct one on one business conversations with exporters from Brazil. There is no pressure to come to any agreements at this event, rather, the focus will be on sharing information about Brazilian food products  that are available to the US market.  In addition to meeting potential new suppliers, participating US companies will learn more about Doing Business with Brazil and are able to network with many other stakeholders within their respective industries.

For interested and qualified US companies that are outside the Chicago and Houston areas we will be covering travel expenses (including hotel accommodations at a business class hotel and flights to and from the event) to help facilitate attendance. 

The Houston, TX event will be held on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 at a downtown Houston hotel.

The Chicago, IL event will be held on Friday, October 31, 2014 at a downtown Chicago hotel.

We are expecting spots to fill up quickly, so please apply for an invitation and a Euromonitor representative will contact you to discuss your company’s participation in more detail.

Wearable Devices: The Future of Consumer Electronics and Health and Wellness

As consumers look for more personalization in their diet and wellness plans, they are turning to digital health products like apps and wearable electronics. Passive wearable electronics, including fitness trackers like FitBit and Jawbone, are one of the fastest growing categories in consumer electronics. Additionally, many nutrient-restrictive diets like gluten-free, lactose-free and FODMAP have apps tailored to guiding consumers through their daily food intake.

I recently spoke at Vitafoods Asia 2014 where the latest food and beverage product development trends were discussed among industry experts. Topics covered included Asia Pacific’s Muslim community, safety standards and the labelling of functional foods, plus a focus on various ingredients such as monkfruit, an emerging sweetener in Asia Pacific.

WhiteWave’s Acquisition of SO Delicious Dairy Free Should Cement its Lead in Non-Dairy Milk Alternatives

Diana.cowlandAnalyst Insight by Diana Cowland - Senior Health and Wellness Analyst

View Diana Cowland's profile on LinkedIn

WhiteWave Foods’ acquisition of SO Delicious Dairy Free for US$195 million is a sensible move for the company and creates an opportunity for it to establish its lead in plant-based foods. WhiteWave Foods Co – created when Danone spun off WhiteWave-Alpro in 2012 – ranks 20th in health and wellness (HW) in North America, holding a 1% value share, equivalent to US$1.3 billion, in 2013. This is already impressive for a company which only sells dairy products, many of which are plant based.

In addition, it has a strong presence in non-dairy milk alternatives – it is the number one company globally with a 13% value share in 2013 – mainly due to its Silk and Alpro brands. The acquisition is therefore a bid to expand its presence in the HW arena as SO Delicious Dairy Free is well known amongst health-conscious consumers in the US for its vegan, GMO-free plant-based foods. Its product portfolio includes ice creams, beverages, creamers, cultured products and frozen desserts.
