Using Megatrends to Examine the Health and Wellness Market

Health and Wellness producers are often advised to target consumers who already live healthy and sustainable lifestyles, but by examining the health and wellness market using megatrends, several other aspects emerge. Health and wellness products cannot sell on the sole basis of being healthy - desirability and lifestyle adaptation are key factors as well.

Ley de etiquetado de alimentos en Chile: ¿Quién gana y quién pierde?

Felipe-PintoPor: Felipe Pinto, Research Associate en Euromonitor International

Inicialmente, es de esperar que la ley sea en rigor homogénea y tenga como objeto regular las condiciones básicas que garanticen la igualdad en el ejercicio del derecho y deberes de los ciudadanos, tanto a nivel personal como empresarial. ¿Pero qué ocurre entonces cuando la puesta en rigor de una ley inclina la balanza en favor de un grupo de empresas?

La ley de etiquetado de alimentos ha sufrido varios cambios desde su primera propuesta hasta su actual forma definitiva. Uno de ellos, que pareciera ser menor, pone sobre el tapete una discusión hasta ahora oculta, con implicancias que aún están por descifrarse. El cambio es el de pasar  del etiquetado por porciones al etiquetado por 100g de producto. Si bien esta modificación se hizo a mediados del 2014, no ha habido un análisis acabado de las consecuencias que podría conllevar, por lo que cabe preguntarse, ¿Cómo podría esto afectar a alguna categoría específica, o más aún, cómo podría esto beneficiar únicamente a alguna o algunas  empresas?

Top Trends Seen at FMI Connect and United Fresh 2015

The FMI (Food Marketing Institute) Connect, InterBev, and United Fresh co-located trade shows took place in Chicago from June 8 to 11. The three trade shows hosted attendees who saw the latest in alcoholic drinks, fresh produce, hot and soft drinks, and packaged foods for the supermarket industry. Below are the top trends that the Euromonitor research team of Beatriz de Llano, Emily Balsamo, Eric Penicka, Mark Strobel, and Virginia Lee observed.

Authentic Italian

Italia

Italian companies had a big presence at this year’s FMI Connect through the Italy pavilion. Organized by the Italian Trade Agency (ITA), the pavilion featured about 50 Italian food and beverage companies featuring products from gorgonzola cheese to Prosecco to packaged cornetti (an Italian pastry). While the presence of Italian products at FMI Connect was undoubtedly to increase exports of Italian products into US retail outlets, the underlying goal of the ITA was to educate Americans about what separates products from Italy and those made in the Italian style. Further, the ITA’s final objective is to obtain geographic labelling protections much like those which currently exist within the European Union, which are currently being negotiated under the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. If passed, geographical indications on European products would give consumers an additional informative label to trust, much like “Certified GF Gluten Free” and “USDA Organic” certifications, assisting consumers in identifying true Italian products from their imitators.

Top 5 Food Trends at NRA Show 2015

NRAThe National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show took place in Chicago from May 16 to 20. The show and its BAR event hosted attendees from around the world who saw the latest in packaged foods, hot and soft drinks, alcoholic drinks, cooking equipment, and software for the restaurant industry. Below are the top 5 food trends that the Euromonitor research team of Emily Balsamo and Virginia Lee observed.
 
1. 3-D Printing: With the increase in foodies posting food and beverage photos on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, there is more pressure on chefs and mixologists to create an eye-popping entree or cocktail. Enter the 3-D culinary printer that can print out multi-coloured candy orchids and sugar skulls to decorate cakes and drinks. 3D Systems used its ChefJetPro food printer to print edible sugar objects on the show floor.
 
2. Ancient Grains: Amaranth, buckwheat, Kamut, millet, quinoa, and spelt have been growing in popularity in the US and companies are trying to capitalize on that trend.  Quinoa is one the most popular ancient grains with gluten-free positioning and high protein content making it appealing for multiple eating occasions. For example, yoghurt maker Chobani featured their Chobani Oats Ancient Grain Blend that includes amaranth and buckwheat in addition to steel-cut oats and chia. Atalanta Corporation positioned its Del Destino Ready to Eat Quinoa Salads as a quick, high-protein, vegetarian meal. PepsiCo introduced a quinoa variety of its Quaker Granola Bars to appeal to healthy snackers. While wheat has declined in popularity to the gluten-free trend, Americans have embraced ancient grains because those whole grains are high in fibre and minerals.

Brazil's Business Environment: Consumption in Economic Slowdown

250_brazilBusiness-v1.0On the surface, Brazil looks like an attractive market. It is the seventh largest global economy and has a population of 200 million, with high consumer expenditure and high demand for commodities.
But Brazilians are spending less, industrial confidence is deteriorating, and inflation is rising, meaning a future of slow growth and economic recovery.
