    FREE Webinar - Personalization: Goodbye to One Size Fits All

    05.23.18

    Consumers are empowered by technology, information, and choice. They can look back generations with the assistance of science to discover family connections that were long lost. With these new capabilities, consumers are taking more control of their lives. Whether it’s ordering a custom wardrobe based on exact personal measurements or a nutritional diet plan based on a blood sample, personalization is here.
     
    Businesses have begun using personalized DNA testing to deliver ready-to-eat meals to consumers (e.g., Habit). The bar has been raised for supplement companies to deliver this type of healthcare. While science and technology try to keep pace, companies are quickly developing strategies that take them from broad segmentation to more tailored solutions. So how can you develop a strategy to keep pace with this new expectation for personalization?
     
    Participants in this webinar will learn more about products and services that can help them tailor their product offer for discerning consumers.  Join us to hear more about:

    • Consumer trends and expectations for personalization;
    • How to leverage ingredients to support a broad consumer need yet still develop specific solutions;
    • Technology, solutions, and capabilities to support a diverse portfolio of consumer needs.

    Keys to Raising Your Quality IQ

    Keys to Raising Your Quality IQ

    03.21.18

    Commitment to quality is the foundation of good business, as it serves consumers and benefits the bottom line. Several highly-publicized incidents have gained attention from the media, regulators, and consumers, affecting the industry at large. At the same time new regulations have come online. For example, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is the largest change in FDA guidelines in 70 years.

    These shifts make quality control more than a prescriptive guidance. Successful companies are building new regulatory approaches based on science, continuous improvement, and quality risk management. These processes and practices ultimately distinguish a company’s position in the industry, and with consumers. Mitigating risks through a comprehensive quality control and assurance program helps to ensure the safety and quality of goods sold in the health and nutrition marketplace.

    Participants in this webinar will learn what best-in-class companies are doing to establish their quality processes and practices. Join us to learn more about:

    • Consumer’s expectations and reservations
    • Key lessons and experience of building a world-class quality program
    • New tools, capabilities, and support available to design a quality program
