Proactive Health: Combining Healthy Halos and Science

Start Date:17 April, 2019

Start Time:4 PM CET

Duration:45 minutes


There can often be a disconnect between what consumers perceive as healthy in a food or beverage, what science shows is healthy, and what claims can be made.

How can you deliver on-trend foods with a strong health halo, while ensuring consumers get the health benefit they expect from a product?

Join us for the Kerry Health and Nutrition Institute ‘Proactive Health’ webinar, where we will share original research that explores answers to questions such as:

  • Which health or functional benefits (e.g. digestive health, sleep, mood) do consumers want most, from their food and beverages?
  • What are the high opportunity categories? What foods or dayparts should be the focus for different benefits?
  • Which ingredients have strong health halos among consumers for each health benefit?
  • Does scientific evidence support these healthy halo perceptions?
  • What are some innovation strategies to develop products that meet both consumer expectations as well as real health benefits through science?
