Today's Abstract Dec 2008

Facts, Figures, & the Future (F3) e-Newsletter provides the latest consumer data, facts, figures, and trend information. Today's issue features Will organics sustain in a worsened economy?, Getting on the right side of ham, Could Asian foods excite with a health persona?, and more. It's all about the economy, and how it is changing the way retailers, consumers and CPG brands are going about their business. In our lede stories, we explore how the faltering economy halted premium purchasing in many households, specifically organics. The rising tide of organics was a phenomenon for years. It symbolized so much of what Americans felt about the safety of our food supply, and their willingness to pay more, sometimes much more, for what they thought would be healthier choices for their families. Despite the mounting evidence that organics are not growing, retailers have experienced how organic varieties in categories storewide could help cultivate a 'caring, good for you' image that will serve them well when money flows more freely again. Rounding out this issue of F3 takes on in-depth analysis of where in the store ham sells, how to mainstream Asian products that align with today’s wellness initiatives, and how shoppers strategically stretch dollars by purchasing alternative brands that cost less money.
