IRI and NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business Demonstrate the Power of Sustainable Products at Prepared Foods’ New Products Conference


Larry Levin, Executive Vice President, Market and Shopper Intelligence, IRI®
Randi Kronthal-Sacco, Senior Scholar, Marketing and Corporate Outreach, NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business

On October 1, IRI’s Larry Levin will expand on the impact and importance of driving new sustainable products, alongside NYU Stern Center’s Randi Kronthal-Sacco. This session, titled “Sustainable: For Sales and the Planet,” will focus on areas of opportunity, successful products, the cost of not listening to consumer needs, the value of current and future sustainably marketed products, and strategies to improve sustainability messaging.


Purchasing sustainable products has become increasingly important among consumers, especially Millennials and Generation Z. They are committed to buying products that have been developed and promoted with a sustainable, eco-friendly positioning, and understanding this shift is essential for companies that hope to obtain a competitive edge. By providing opportunities to rethink and refocus business efforts, this session will help CPG manufacturers develop products that better appeal to consumers.
