Soya Expert Ng Eng Wah from Thye Huat Chan explains how he can supply the variant and quality which deliver the precise benefit your consumers want to buy.

How to find out what to include in Your Health Product
Naturally, the best way to find out what your consumers what is to ask them. And I’d suggest you do exactly that – face to face. But to help you on your way (and to save you months of time!) HealthFocus International have just completed their 2010 Global Shopper Survey. The longest running survey of its kind anywhere, this survey analyses the changing attitudes and behaviours of Primary Household Shoppers (the person making the supermarket shelf choices) and reveals a prioritised list of sought-after benefits, key concerns, problems suffered, packaging preferences, brand influences and much more.
HealthFocus is trusted by many of the World’s leading manufacturers and ingredients companies. Whether they are looking for information on Soya, Dairy, Juices, Nectars, Packaging, Medical Benefits, Packaging, Labelling, Health Claims, Consumer Concerns, etc. they can find out what consumers really want in 34 markets from HealthFocus.
At the Healthy Marketing Team we work closely with HealthFocus International to help our Clients (brand owners, manufacturers and ingredients companies) move from consumer data to brand success.
