1. Digestive wellness
2. Snacking as an occasion in its own right
3. Ethics goes 360
4. Total wellbeing
5. Adventurous consumption
Insights from some of the world’s largest food and nutrition research providers* have been analysed by NZMP, picking its top five trends for food and beverage manufacturers worldwide. NZMP, the global ingredients brand of Fonterra, hopes the information will help its customers worldwide with their product development and positioning.
Alex Turnbull, NZMP Marketing Director, says the trends are helping to shape the global FMCG marketplace, with NZMP at the forefront of delivering to the trends in all of its markets.
“At a macro level, these trends are driven by a changing global demographic, rapid urbanisation and rising wealth. NZMP helps our customers meet their consumers’ changing needs by being relevant and insightful, at scale. With a wide-reaching dairy-based ingredient range and a wealth of global dairy expertise that leads the world, NZMP plays an active role in driving these trends forward,” says Alex.
New Nutrition Business and Mintel report that people’s increasing awareness of microbiome science, and how it can affect overall health and wellbeing, is changing the way consumers think about food. As a result, there is increasing mainstream demand for products that focus on digestive wellness.
James Dekker, NZMP Programme Manager, Nutrition and Health, says a diet that aids gut health may have a number of benefits.
“Years of research have been conducted on probiotics and their role in sustaining good gut bacteria. In the past, the effect of probiotics on the gut microbiome has been all about digestive comfort and wellness. Indeed, dairy probiotics are sought after and are well known for supporting immunity. More recently, we have started to see evidence that probiotics may play other beneficial roles in areas such as cognition, anti-inflammation, and metabolic health. They are now moving more mainstream as part of sports and active lifestyle products for adults,” says James.
According to New Nutrition Business, yoghurt stands out to consumers as one of the top three ‘good foods’ for digestive health, along with fruit and vegetables.
Snacking as an occasion in its own right
NZMP research1 shows snacking has a share of 40% of food and beverage consumption in diverse markets and is becoming an established meal occasion in its own right. As snacking solutions become more accessible and common, demand for the quality of food and beverages in snacking also evolves.
According to Roshena De Leon, NZMP Global Insights Manager, “The snackification trend is evolving and there are no limits to new product development. Innova reports that healthy snacking options have shown the fastest growth in new product development in the last 5 years, and consumers expect to pay a premium for healthy/functional snacks,” says Roshena.
Ethics goes 360
Consumer interest in ethical sourcing and sustainability continues, now evolving to extend throughout the whole supply chain.
According to Globaldata, 41% of consumers look for ethical or sustainable logos when shopping, 38% are willing to pay a premium for sustainable materials and 30% are willing to pay for social responsibility claims such as ‘pasture-raised’ and ‘humane’.
Lara Phillips, Manager, Sustainable Value says consumer concern about sustainability will see them look for products that are both “healthy for the world” and “healthy for me”.
“New Zealand farmers lead the world in many aspects of sustainable dairying, with high productivity, year-round pasture grazing and low use of supplementary feeds. As a result, our dairy has amongst the world’s lowest carbon footprint, and amongst the highest rates of grass-feeding.
“A number of NZMP customers are leveraging the NZMP New Zealand grass-fed icon worldwide, which gives consumers confidence in the supply chain and the origins of their product. We look forward to working with more customers to help bring their sustainability story to life,” says Lara.
Consumers are increasingly mindful of their overall health, evolving from just physical to total body, mind and emotional wellbeing. As a result, positioning products on demographics such as age and gender alone will become less relevant with lifestyle-based positioning taking its place.
“In line with this trend, we expect to see more collaboration opportunities between seemingly disconnected or independent categories, for example, foods and gadgets, apparel and beverages, food keepers and formula. There will also be more opportunities to cross sell and cross promote linked by a common goal to help consumers achieve total wellness,” says Roshena De Leon.
Launches tracked by Mintel show an increase of 39% in food and beverage launches with “discovery” a key message appearing on pack in 2017 and 2018. Innova notes that, ‘arousing consumer curiosity by including an element of surprise’ is a way to activate this trend.
According to Roshena, “New experiences as part of food and beverage consumption remain important. Consumers will place value on the authenticity of these experiences in place of generic products and will pay more attention to higher quality, unique and differentiated offerings. On top of this, the glocalisation of food that started years ago will be given a boost and we will see more ethnic foods being introduced, including ethnic dairy options.”

Diligent Launches Modern Governance to Address Dangerous Governance Deficits and Announces New Modern Governance Summit22.5.2019 16:27:00 EEST | Tiedote
Today, Diligent Corporation launched a new category, called modern governance, designed to provide leaders with the missing key to bring governance into the digital age, along with new technology and a summit to support this well-designed system. Modern governance is the practice of empowering leaders with technology, insights, and processes to fuel good governance that organizations require to thrive and endure. Modern governance helps organizations address governance deficits. A governance deficit means an organization lacks the security, foresight, and accountability to withstand the onslaught of contemporary challenges – such as activist investors, cyber risk, regulation, diversity and global uncertainty. Feedback from Diligent’s 16,000 clients and the 600,000 leaders who use its technology – including more than 50% of the Fortune 1000, 70% of the FTSE 100, and 65% of the ASX – sparked the need for rethinking how companies and their boards should approach governance to navigate tod
