Can sugar taxes help beat the globesity bulge?

France’s sugar tax has been in place for years, Mexico’s is in full swing and Britain’s is on its way.

As the obesity crisis spreads rapidly across the globe, taxes are touted one of the methods that could fight it.  But do they actually work?

Do they incentivise reformulation or does industry simply pass on the extra cost to the consumer? And if that’s the case, do consumers then buy less because of the higher price – or does it just leave people out of pocket?


A Case Study in Using Health & Wellness Segmentation to Grow Your Business

Data collected from more than 14,000 consumers in 22 countries forms the basis of a recent insight-driven research project from DuPont Nutrition & Health, designed to help food and beverage manufacturers develop and market products in the health and wellness area.

Learning the demands of the various health & wellness segments is critical to understanding what motivates food purchase behavior. Join DuPont Nutrition & Health’s Greg Paul as he discusses the results of this global segmentation research and reveals the consumer segments you need to know. We will run through a case study to bring the results to life and make it tangible for attendees.

This proprietary research will aid food and beverage manufacturers to determine the motivations, needs, concerns, and behaviors of various consumer groups in today’s evolving market.
