Consumers’ minds are susceptible to subtle subconscious cues. It is estimated that up to 40% of consumers change their minds at the point of purchase because of something they see, learn, or do (Source: Huffington Post). For example, if a shopper goes to the store and gets a craving for chocolate, she will value options with that ingredient differently than she would on a normal day. But consumer choices are getting more complicated and more diverse over time. Brands and retailers who want to succeed in attracting and retaining customers will need to rely on data to make strong business decisions. That's where we come in!
You've heard it before: color has an impact on our mood and our appetite. Consumers have adjusted to years of evolving marketing tactics designed to draw shopper attention, build credibility, and communicate value.

While the legal definition of a "natural" flavor could mean a flavor essence or an actual juice derivative, a discerning parent just wants to know it's organic. Well, ok, but is it certified organic?
