According to McKinsey, half of consumers call healthy eating a top priority. Today’s health-conscious consumer is driving all new dietary habits. They are passionate about embracing health in many aspects of their lives, and food is a huge part of this. Food is identified with a much wider variety of health benefits and concerns. Consumers are looking for specific foods to benefit their health, and to support their self-care strategies. It is why the vegan and organic sectors continue to gain pace, with the functional benefits of the foods consumed now of equal importance to the nutritional value offered. And, with an estimated global value of £26.5bn, the retail health market is growing by 8.1% year-on-year.
