Tasty trend #2 for retailers

Freedom is happiness

Emotional value outweighs the value of pricing: when facing a budget crisis, consumers are still

willing to buy less costly luxury goods. Pleasure manifests itself as an intrinsic need, as people

look to spoil themselves with everyday moments of happiness.

Take-aways

    Consumers crave the freedom to indulge, retailers have to make sure they offer the right private label architecture, with choice between price-entry, consumer and premium tiers.

  • Influence shopping habits

    Consumers use tech and non-traditional sources to look for advice on shopping habits. They are indirectly targeted by influencers, which tends to give shoppers the illusion of choice.

Tasty trend #3 for retailers

Time is convenience

Retailers need to think ahead and take convenience to the next level. How can we make our consumer save on time? By giving clear guidance on how to prepare the product as fast and easy as possible.

Take-aways

  • Include all prep methods

    A sizeable portion of retailers forget to include a full range of preparation methods on the product packaging, for instance for air fryer usage. Clear instructions will provide shoppers clear buyer incentive.
