Consumer decision-making regarding their health, values, and habits is undergoing a rapid transition as a result of increasing inflationary pressures, climate change, and the shadow of COVID-19.
Givaudan’s most recent FlavourVision analysis, which it originally collaborated on with Canvas8, examines these changes through five consumer macro trends:
Green for me: turning to eco-actions that feel personal and relevant
Restorative care: adopting more intuitive restorative approaches to health
Stable connections: looking for a sense of stability and continuity, leaning on hyper-local and me-first mindsets
Sensorial renaissance: wanting to ‘feel’ more and seeking experiences that expand the boundaries of what is expected and possible
Augmented assistance: looking for proactive and personalised digital tools to help navigate and optimise life
The FlavourVision 2023 edition draws on the knowledge of recognized specialists in design, ethnography, futurology, holistic-wellness, sustainability, and sensory research in addition to gathering unique data from all around the world. A trend ambassador with reputable experience in each relevant field examined, developed, and analyzed each macro trend. The macro-trends were then verified and future-proofed with the aid of top authorities and futurists from the food and beverage sector to ensure their applicability.
Givaudan will release a mini-report that examines the “Augmented assistance” macro trend as a sneak preview of the research. This in-depth analysis, which was created in collaboration with one of the most prominent women in technology and a cyborg anthropologist, Amber Case, will examine the various ways that customers are looking for enhanced forms of support to lessen the hectic demands of daily life. The macro-trend’s consumer data will be made more understandable to readers, along with examples of creative ways in which brands are expressing it.
