Start Date:6 July 2020

Start Time:2:00PM CET

Duration:60 minutes


Today it is challenging to understand consumer behaviors and drivers when it comes to their buying habits and needs. That is why DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences partnered with IPSOS to conduct qualitative consumer research to understand better the consumer drivers for choosing yogurts with additional health benefits, the ingredients that relate to these health benefits and how consumers relate to them. In this webinar we will take you through some of the results of this study and introduce you to some new concepts and ideas to be able to answer the consumer demand for additional health benefits in yogurts.
