Holistic wellbeing is a long-term trend that is top of mind for consumers. COVID-19 has accelerated this trend and motivated individuals to find ways to make themselves stronger, physically and mentally. As a result, consumers increasingly look for foods and beverages that deliver functionality and support their wellness goals. As part of our Wellness in a Bottle Series, this webinar will expand on Givaudan’s proprietary consumer insights on functional beverages to explore shoppers’ connections between beverages, health benefits, flavors, and ingredients. We have identified the opportunities to create functional products that will win in the market.
