POSTPONED! We are currently setting up a date and platform to conduct the webinar.

The latest consumer trends and their impact on food, beverage & supplement formulation and marketing

Understanding what consumers want and how the market is responding is critical to finding success in the rapidly changing food, beverage and supplement market. In this presentation, we will share proprietary data from Informa / New Hope Network, the producer of Natural Products Expo West, SupplySide West and Nutrition Business Journal. This will include:

  • Data and insights from the NEXT Consumer Trends Report

  • Year over year trends observed from product introductions at Natural Products Expo

  • Market details and predictions from Nutrition Business Journal

We will address the drivers of consumer demand and examples of actual products seeking to fill that demand, as well as the trending ingredients across applications based on product introductions at these trade shows. Which brands are on target with today’s consumer? What are the emerging ingredients that are just about to go big? Which ingredients are crossing over from one category to another? Where is your next opportunity for new products, formulation changes or brand positioning? Attend this session to access the latest intelligence available exclusively from Informa / New Hope Network.
