Health concerns and packaging needs of ageing consumers: new report

Our new report investigates ageing consumers’ self–reported health concerns (current and future), their consumption of different ingredients and nutrients, together with their attitudes and purchase behaviour of supplements and fortified products. 
The study (RD425 - Older adults: which aspects of health are particularly important and what challenges do they face in terms of shopping and opening different types of packaging) also identifies the challenges ageing consumers face when opening packaging and doing their grocery shopping. The report is available exclusively to members of Campden BRI and can be found on the project web site.

Our ‘Reducing sugar in bakery products’ seminar on Friday 22 September will bring together a range of speakers, from industry, academia and industry bodies - as well as our own experts - to discuss the challenge and share ongoing work to develop tools to facilitate the reduction needed.
