Across the globe and throughout all stages of life our food and nutrition needs differ. Whether it’s to help nourish our children or support people as they grow older, food can play an important part. Today’s food and nutrition trends reflect this diversity.
Each year the world is consuming around two per cent more dairy. We want to know what consumers want now and will want 20 years from now.
We understand the need for parents to provide healthy and convenient meal options that their growing active children will enjoy. People’s lives are becoming busier and there’s a need for nutritious foods and snacks that fit into our on-the-go lifestyles. But as the global population ages, we also recognise the importance of providing functional foods that help to meet specific health needs and support healthy and active older years.
In developing countries, we know that there’s a real need for access to affordable nutrient rich foods. Plus around the globe, we understand that there is a drive to create delicious and nutritious meals at home that the whole family will enjoy.
Fonterra is well placed to respond to these trends and continue to place significant effort into understanding the changing wants and needs of our diverse consumers around the world.
