Summary
Why was the report written?
Finding ways to overcome the barriers consumers face to eating healthy will provide key growth opportunities worldwide as disease-related, demographic and desire-led drivers are making health of growing importance to food marketers.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
There is growing demand for food that offers remedial solutions to diseases such as heart disease and risk factors such as obesity, food that provides preventative action against age-related diseases as the population ages, and food that enables lifestyle choices for personal, societal, and environmental wellbeing.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Rising numbers of diet-related non-communicable diseases, an aging population and growing per capita consumption of impulse and convenience foods means health will be of growing importance to food markets over the next few years. However established eating habits, the desire for pleasure, time restraints, cost, and confusion over how to eat healthily means opportunities exist for food marketers who are able to provide healthy food that overcome these barriers.

What makes this report unique and essential to read?
This report provides the reader with a comprehensive review of what is driving the growing importance of health in food markets and the barriers that prevent consumers from following through on an often stated intention to eat more healthily. By looking at both the best and worst case studies, and evaluating the future outlook of food marketers, key opportunities for growth emerge for companies able to provide healthy products that meet the leading needs of value for money, convenience, and indulgence and relaxation.
ReasonsToBuy
Food has a clear role to play globally, and in particular for specific age groups, in addressing the key role diet and exercise play in preventing the further rise of non-communicable diseases such as heart disease and stroke, and managing on-going health issues such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

An aging population will create demand in new product categories. Meanwhile the explosion in the number of people with food allergies, and particularly children, correlates with an increase in population. Finally population growth and per capita consumption growth creates a need to increase yields from agricultural land, but this may come at the expense of producing healthier food or building a better environment.

Consumers desire for affordable, quick and easy food is leading them to eat more and to eat less healthily. Marketers need to develop healthy products that better meet peoples primary consumption motivators, be they looking for better value for money, for convenience or to indulge.

Barriers to health must be addressed in order to reduce dietary risk to consumer health. The most significant barriers to the health trend can be broken down into three categories: personal choice factors such as pleasure and habit, lifestyle factors such as cost and time, and institutional factors such as confusion as to what constitutes a healthy diet and the availability of healthy food or portion sizes.

Dietary guidelines are issued for the general public and as such do not take into account specific ailments, diseases, intolerances, and preferences and it is perhaps for this reason that people do not follow them. For some time now, the idea of personalized nutrition has been discussed as the key to allowing consumers to successfully address their health needs. In particular, nutrigenomics, which combines the study of nutrition and genes, has the potential to provide truly personalized approaches to nutrition. However, this has not yet become a reality for the mass population.
