Clean Label Expectations
Clean label is a macro trend and expectation for premium products. This trend is evolving and expanding as younger generations enter the workforce and gain buying power, therefore influencing trends.
Understanding what consumers are looking for on their label affects almost every aspect of product development. Regardless of how great a product is, if a consumer does not purchase or consume the product then it will stay on the shelf.
Clear Label Aspirations
Clean label consumers still want a short, understandable ingredient list. They also aspire for a clear label, meaning that the products they are purchasing are sustainably sourced and packaged and are safe for the environment and people.
We are seeing clear label attributes consistently appear in the top five when asking all consumers what clean label means to them regarding packaged foods. This shows the rise in demand for clear label and the assimilation of these attributes into clean label.
