They could start by finding out what really motivates this audience – the vast majority of the American population - says Dr Wansink, director of the internationally recognized Cornell Food and Brand Lab*, and a speaker at Food Vision USA 2016 this November.
In his presentation, on day three of the conference (hosted by FoodNavigator-USA and NutraIngredients-USA), Dr Wansink will explore:
• Pure economics – why the health conscious consumer shouldn’t be your target
• Predisposed vs obsessed – the mainstream attitude to health and to a life enriched by food
• If not health, then what? What does motivate the mainstream consumer (and how do you find out)?
• Rethink everything – implications for product, packaging, promotion and retail relationships
• Oh, and it’s good for you too – the secondary health claim and why it still matters
