Etailing-webinar-banner

Listen as MP3

Global fast fashion brands and luxury powerhouses are attracted to the Australian market, looking to do business in a stable economy with healthy inbound tourism. While some companies are building brick and mortar stores in the country, others are choosing an online store approach. More conservative brands are only shipping to Australia as a way to test the market. However, flagship and concept stores remain a vital entry point into the country due to their prominent location and branding – despite high costs.

Can the "Made in Kazakhstan" Campaign Keep its Momentum?

Kazahkstan-Banner

Listen as MP3

"Made in Kazakhstan" is a government campaign to raise awareness of local foods and goods and is considered a success. By focusing on national pride and the desire to support the economy, many brands that were impacted by the devaluation of the Russian ruble continue to see strong sales. However, while the campaign gave these brands exposure, it will be up to each individual brand to maintain awareness and quality.

Сможет ли акция «Сделано в Казахстане» дать импульс продажам отечественных брендов?

Kazahkstan-Banner

MP3

«Сделано в Казахстане» - это успешно проведенная республиканская акция, нацеленная на  рост осведомлённости потребителей об отечественных продуктах питания. Желая поддержать национальную экономику, покупатели стали все больше обращать внимание на продукты, которые производятся отечественными компаниями и были подвержены жесткой ценовой  конкуренции со стороны российских аналогов. Усилив информированность покупателей о локальных брендах, акция все же оставляет отечественным производителям непростую задачу по улучшению качества продукции и ее эффективного продвижения.

Onko koivunmahlavedestä kookosveden seuraajaksi?

Birch-Banner

Listen as MP3

Koivunmahlavettä – koivusta uutettua nestettä, on nautittu Itä-Euroopassa ja Pohjoismaissa jo vuosikymmenten ajan, mutta vasta hiljattain terveysammattilaiset julistivat koivunmahlaveden seuraavaksi ihmetuotteeksi. Koivunmahlavesi, joka kemialliselta koostumukseltaan on verrattavissa kookosveteen, on vähäkalorinen ja sisältää runsaasti vitamiineja ja mineraaleja. Sen suosion kasvua saattavat kuitenkin hidastaa kallis tuotantoprosessi ja lyhyt säilytysaika. Tästä huolimatta koivunmahlavesituotteet voivat kasvattaa markkina-arvoaan, mikäli tuotteita pystytään markkinoimaan riittävästi.

Could Birch Water be the next Coconut Water?

Birch-Banner

Listen as MP3

Birch water, which is extracted from the liquid absorbed by birch trees, has been consumed by Eastern European and Nordic countries for decades and recently discovered by health enthusiasts who claim it as the next 'miracle product'. Similar in chemical makeup to coconut water, the drink is low in calories and contains essential vitamins and minerals. However the extraction process is tedious and the shelf life is short. If marketed correctly, birch water could go head to head with coconut water.

The Pace of the Restaurant Industry Moving Online

Foodservice-Podcast-Banner

Listen as MP3

In the past five years, restaurants have moved into the online space faster than originally expected due to technological saturation. Food delivery is growing exponentially and restaurants that wouldn’t normally offer delivery options can now make use of independent contractors who own their own vehicles. There are even restaurants opening with no physical storefront - the menu appears online only with food being ordered via an app or website and delivered directly to the consumer. In developed countries, having food prepared for consumers immediately is no longer for fast food chains, and we’ll see more of these online ventures moving forward.

Cash-banner

Listen as MP3

The sharing economy and ethical consumption are part of a larger sharing and caring consumer trend.

Red Wine Labelling a Novel Idea in Norway

Wine-drinking-banner

Listen as MP3

Arcus Wine Brands in Norway is releasing several new wines that are specifically labelled "low in tannins" and "low in histamines" for consumers that suffer from red wine headaches. Communicating reduced histamines and tannins directly to the consumer is not required by EU law, thus this educational approach is a novel idea that may spread outside of Norway in the near future.
