January 2024

A new era of holistic wellbeing

Desire for naturally healthy, nutritious and delicious.
28% of food purchases are health motivated, this is strongest amongst older consumers but growing in interest with under 16s and mid 35-45 age groups. Highest consumption occurs across evening meal and morning snack occasions with consumers looking for products to meet their wellbeing needs.

Four wellbeing trends for 2024 and beyond...

Natural & Unprocessed

Consumers are looking for natural ways to enrich their diet, avoiding high fat and added sugar by looking for positive whole food replacements such as fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds. 

 

Healthy Indulgence

We have seen 14% growth of selected indulgent categories with an active health claim over the last 5 years; new brands are hitting the shelves blending indulgence with added value goodness. 

 

Proactive Health

1 in 3 consumers claim to be proactive in dealing with weight management, heart health and joint health while 15% of food and drink choices are chosen due to a health benefit. 

 

Kind to Planet, Kind to Self

Plant-based is a sweet spot between many trends – it’s good for health and the planet. There has been a wave of product innovation in this area with plant-based claims increasing by 302% between 2018 and 2022.
