IRI to Share Insights on Consumer Food Shopping Trends at 54 th Annual Food Marketing Conference

WHO:    Sally Lyons Wyatt, Executive Vice President and Practice Leader, IRI®
WHAT:    The way consumers shop, cook and dine is changing dramatically. From shopping for food and beverage items both online and in the store to eating fresh, frozen, plant-based, functional and alternative foods, consumers’ purchasing and consumption habits have never been so varied. To help marketers understand U.S. consumers and stay ahead of the curve, IRI’s Sally Lyons Wyatt will share retail-based consumer and shopper sales trends, identify outperforming segments and uncover vulnerabilities during her “Stirring the U.S. Melting Pot for Growth” presentation. 

WHY:    CPG companies know that U.S. consumers’ eating preferences cross a wide spectrum. Understanding the factors that drive these variances is the key to innovating product lines and capturing more “share of stomach.”
