Health & Wellness

It’s About Personal Responsibility

health and wellness

Consumers’ purchasing behavior is influenced by their health and wellness goals.

People are making conscious decisions to improve their overall health through healthier food consumption. This durable trend has spawned sub-trends such as a concern for food safety, a preference for “local” foods—which are perceived to be safer—a desire for transparency about how products are made and a preference for allergen-free foods.
