Personalized nutrition is an emerging trend whereby food and drinks products are more closely matched to consumers’ individual nutritional needs, aspirations and preferences. Product development and marketing strategies of manufacturers are beginning to address consumers as discrete populations of individuals, rather than as generic, mass-market consumers with relatively undifferentiated buying practices.

Consumer Targeting in Food and Drinks is a new report by Business Insights that provides insight into marketing strategies that target specific groups of consumers. The report analyzes consumer and manufacturer drivers, looks at leading product categories and ingredients, and NPD in the key markets of Europe, Japan and the US.

Key issues examined by this report

  • Individualization of lifestyles and responsibility for health and wellness. Consumers are increasingly aiming to both protect and to project their self-identity and look to food and drink products that are developed for their own individual needs and desires.
  • Nutrigenomics (the science of how nutrition and genetics interact). Manufacturers are interested in nutrigenomics as the technology enables the development of food and drink products with targeted health benefits. These products address growing public concern about lifestyle diseases. Nutrigenomics offers opportunities for different sectors of the food and drinks industry, including food and ingredient manufacturers, and food processing companies.
  • Customization of tastes and flavors. This is an emerging trend whereby food and drinks products are formulated to address consumers’ individual tastes and flavor aspirations by enabling them to adapt products according to their own preferences. It especially relates to flavor adaptations which enable consumers to choose novel, exotic, ethnic flavors which are bolder and stronger than established flavor offerings.
