We find effective inspiration from market dynamics, consumer taste, emotions and clients' needs by:
LOOKING INTO THE FUTURE: Accurate anticipation is key in todays fast moving markets. With more than 15 years of experience in forecasting macro-trends, our Creative Marketing teams are dedicated to observing the emotional evolution of society, allowing us to capture whats inside tomorrows consumption patterns. This provides us with more creative depth, additional innovation dimensions and gives significant value to our flavor submissions and our clients' products.
INTEGRATING SENSES AND EMOTIONS: Taste is strongly linked to the four other senses, so to understand the big picture we cant just focus on taste and smell. Observing and understanding the many ways senses and emotions influence the complete consumption process allows us to choose the best flavor solutions in terms of taste, sensations and texture.
OBSERVING CONSUMER LIFESTYLES AND DRIVERS: Observing consumers is fascinating! Our approach is the result of a complementary observation of consumer lifestyles and drivers. Confronting both the essence of demographics and what fuels consumption growth allows us to have a more complete picture to respond precisely to complex consumer needs.
UNDERSTANDING FLAVOR AND MARKET TRENDS: The quest to understand consumer taste is intimately linked with the evolution of macro-trends and consumer trends and drivers. Our teams have developed an observation system capable of defining up-coming, declining and favorite flavors for selected markets, categories and regions.
