2013 Consumer Trends Study

Consumer Trends Study

The 2013 Fresh Trends survey, The Packer’s annual survey on changing consumer behaviors in the produce aisle, will be presented and discussed in detail in a free webcast scheduled for Thursday, April 11. The Packer’s Editor, Greg Johnson, will unveil some of the more noteworthy findings while Produce Retailer’s Editor, Pamela Riemenschneider, discusses what this means to produce marketers and the retail market. You will also hear the retail response to these trends from leading retailer, Paul Kneeland, Vice President of produce, floral, meat and seafood for Parsippany, N.J.-based Kings Food Markets.

Attendees will learn why nearly two-thirds of consumers report the economy has changed the way they shop for food, and while the traditional supermarket still commands the largest share of fresh produce purchases, consumers are visiting more formats than ever before.
