The Psychology of Food: A Deeper, Actionable Understanding of the Modern Consumer

About This Webinar

Food and beverage companies have historically used demographic analysis to understand consumer and shopper behavior. The traditional demographic framework involves segmenting a population into buckets based on age (e.g., Baby Boomers, Gen X, Millennial, Gen Z, Gen Alpha, etc.). Such models may have worked in the past when demographic cohorts were more uniform in nature, but in an increasingly integrated and digital world, a more effective paradigm is needed.

In this Food Institute-exclusive webinar, we invited Hunter Thurman of Alpha-Diver and Nik Modi of RBC Capital Markets to share their insights based on fresh data they'll share on the consumer of tomorrow. This webinar will help answer the following questions:

• What consumer psychological profiles does neuroscience reveal when it comes to food decision-making?
• What characteristics / attributes define them, and how can CPG companies and food retailers apply this framework to better serve consumers?
• How will consumers react as prices continue to climb?
• What role does the on-line “experience” play in the “new normal”?

These are just some of the topics that were addressed in this webinar.
