Natural

Consumers actively seek natural ingredients. According to our consumer research, natural claims on the front of packaging positively influence their purchasing decisions.

76.5% of New Zealand consumers see “no artificial ingredients” as appealing on the front of food and drink packaging, while 76.25% of New Zealand consumers see “natural/all natural” as  appealing.  63.1% of consumers would even consider switching brands for a no additives/ no e-numbers claim.[1]

Our NOVATION® and HOMECRAFT® range can help support natural claims for your products.

Simple

Consumers increasingly want minimally processed products made from a simple list of recognised ingredients. In fact, 77.9% of New Zealand consumers find it important that they recognise a product’s ingredients.[1]

We can help you get the functionality you need from fewer ingredients and build consumer confidence in your brand.

Clean Labels

When your products are made from simple ingredients people understand – without things perceived as undesirable – you build trust from the moment they read the label.

Collaborate with us for insights on consumer perception of ingredients. For instance, we know which ingredients consumers think of as “familiar”, such as flour, and which remain “unfamiliar”. You can formulate exciting products with all the taste and texture consumers expect – and nothing they want to avoid.
