According to recent research and Freedom of Information requests made to health authorities, hospital admissions in England due to food reactions rose from 2,758 in 2004 to 4,744 in 2015, showing there is a growing need for food products for allergy sufferers. This is supported by research from the US where The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that food allergies among US children increased approximately 50% between 1997 and 2011 and currently 15 million Americans have food allergies. Transparency of information is essential to ensure consumers can make informed food decisions and protect themselves against risk.
Consumers remain the driving force for retail, continuing to demand more choice, quality and transparency. How can retailers respond to these demands and give themselves a strong chance for success in 2016 and beyond?
Trace One consumer interviews on the street reveal a growing concern among shoppers on the correlation between their health and the ‘real’ ingredients in the food products they buy and eat. They want, and need, to trust labels, sources, and ingredients.
According to recent research from Euromonitor, private label consumers are now placing increasing importance on food provenance, sustainability, ingredients, freshness and seasonality. For retail, this means information has to be shared effectively throughout the supply chain in order to secure consumers’ trust. This has in turn made transparency a hot topic, as it forms a crucial foundation to the trust between consumers, retailers and suppliers. Trace One recently conducted a survey of Fortune 500 companies, covering private label retailers, suppliers and manufacturers, to get their insight. The results were interesting to say the least.
The Elliot Report’s recent investigation into food scares has increased the focus on the food supply chain and put more pressure on retailers, manufacturers and food industry professionals. The potential damage to the food industry’s reputation means that information should be fully shared throughout the supply chain and accessible to consumers. However, full transparency doesn’t only inspire customer trust and help solve problems like product recalls; it can also be an opportunity to form better ways of working and champion credentials to customers. Dietary, allergy and ethical information are playing a much larger role and consumers are savvier than ever. Retailers and manufacturers who can demonstrate they have these considerations at the forefront of mind will be better placed to attract these savvy shoppers.
In our last blog, we discussed the rise of discount supermarkets, and how they had become able to compete so effectively with other, more established retailers. Today, we will look at how retailers can react to this and ensure that they are still offering products and value that will keep shoppers coming back for more.

Selecting a Software as a Service (SaaS) vendor for a Product Lifecyle Management (PLM) solution goes beyond just looking at application features.
Functionality is maybe only 50% of the overall value proposition. While it is important that the solution meets the businesses core needs, IT directors need to help the business choose the right solution based on technology aspects of the SaaS vendors as well.
