It is first of all important to know which developments are taking place at a market level. With this market knowledge you are ready to take a unique position in the market. Naturally, we also advise you on how to best act on this as a company.
In order to serve the customer as well as possible, it is important to have an in-depth understanding of this consumer. This is necessary since a vegetarian has different wishes than a vegan.
For example, there are various motives for consumers to choose a specific product. In the vegetarian, vegan and plant-based market, this concerns environmental, health and animal welfare considerations. In addition, this consumer is also influenced by price, convenience, taste, mood and familiarity. As a company, you want to ensure that your products claim the right motives from consumers. A consumer makes as many as 200 food choices per day and each choice takes energy. Many of these choices are automatic and as a company you can influence these. We are happy to advise you on the basis of our programs.
