Welcome to our December reflections & prediction series. Shall we welcome today's expert?
My name is Mike Hughes and I am Head of Research and insights at FMCG gurus. The key takeout for 2021 is that we've seen a complete shift in focus from health goals being aspirational to instead focused on disease management and reducing vulnerability to illness, consumers are being proactive, taking a prevention over cure approach to health. They've re-evaluated their diets, and lifestyles, and taken a long-term approach to wellness. This is something that we'll see in 2022 and beyond, because of the continued uncertainty around COVID-19, but also has consumers become more conscious about their health. This will drive demand for functional and fortified food and drink products.
