    The rules have been rewritten. Clean and clear label is the new global standard. The demand for total transparency increases marketing efforts that incorporate the entire supply chain into a product's branding. The upstream part of the value chain is gaining more attention in product and brand positioning, as the overarching clean label positioning becomes more holistic.

    As plant milks, meat alternatives and vegan offerings have moved rapidly into mainstream, consumers are looking for innovative options to take the inherent benefits of plants into their daily lives. Even dairy companies are now leveraging the functional and technical benefits of plants in new product development.

    Innova Market Insights’ Top 10 Trends is the source for consumer lifestyle and product trends.

    • Where are the opportunities for marketing a clean supply chain?
    • How are innovators meeting the needs of flexitarian consumers?
    • How free from products can be marketed to be “more in tune with my body.”
