New Food Marketing Regulations – Thematic Research

Powered by

All the vital news, analysis, and commentary curated by our industry experts.

Food marketing, at its core, is about communicating information with shoppers. This is primarily done via product claims, labeling, and advertising – both online (in digital and broadcast marketing materials) and in print (magazines, billboards, posters, leaflets, and newspapers).

Food regulation has been a hot topic in recent years due to the proliferation of cannabidiol (CBD)-infused food innovations, countries cracking down on unhealthy foods that are high in fat, salt, and sugar (HFSS) being marketed to children, and meat alternative technology growing more advanced. These three sectors will be explored more deeply in this report, as they represent three types of regulatory gray zones: a previously controlled substance being incorporated into food, food types that are increasingly being viewed as potentially harmful to children, and novel foods that push the boundaries of what was thought possible. The phenomenon of digitalization has led to companies leveraging social media to attract more consumers.

The new food marketing regulations thematic intelligence report provides insights into the key trends impacting the theme and industry and value chain analysis. The report also lists leading private and public companies associated with the theme and their competitive position.

New Food Marketing Regulations: Industry Analysis

More consumers are switching to a plant-based diet or reducing their meat intake and the meat substitutes market is witnessing growing demand as a result. This high interest in plant-based meat alternatives is creating high expectations and attracting substantial investment.

Companies need to follow the required legislation to avoid misleading the consumer. The use of ingredients that replace the meat element with a plant protein must be clarified on the label, be approved, and comply with the novel food regulations. Currently, many companies are producing microbial fermentation using bacteria, yeasts, and fungi instead of animals.

To sustain the brand’s success in the long term, the brand has to describe the ingredients and standards required. In this way, the brand provides the right label claim and meets consumers’ expectations. Therefore, companies must state on the packaging that the product is derived from plant-based sources to avoid consumers misunderstanding a product.

The report also discusses the impact of new food marketing regulations on the savory snacks and confectionery sectors. Also, the new food marketing regulations market research report offers insights into:

New Food Marketing Regulations: Value Chain Analysis

Food and drug regulation relies on two fundamental consumer drivers: trust and safety. To gain consumer trust and achieve product safety, the value chain is centered on five brand and product attributes namely product certification, carbon footprint labeling, recyclable packaging, blockchain technology, and ethical sourcing.

Product Certification: Product certification is quite useful in marketing as it brings credibility to the company. Currently, there are several certifications that a food company can achieve to provide a guarantee that its products meet consumer demands. Organizations and labels such as the Rainforest Alliance, USDA-Organic, UK Soil Association, non-GMO, vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free certifications increase the probability of a consumer deciding to purchase the product. These certifications are associated with sustainable and ethical values that many consumers are now expecting to find on the product packaging.

Carbon Footprint Labeling: FMCG companies are including the carbon footprint on product packaging, as more regulations are pushing for transparency while providing information about a product’s environmental impact, especially if the company has set a goal to reduce its carbon footprint in the future

Business Intelligence & Marketing Manager, SAL Heavy Lift

“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”

Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk

Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.

Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.

Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods

Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.

I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.

I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.

Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered

“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.

Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”

Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan

GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise.  The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.

I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.

One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
