If You Build It, Will They Come? Consumer Behavior Concepts for Effective Marketing of Healthy Food – an NGFN webinar

Thursday, October 18, 2012 3:30 PM – 5:00 PM EDT

Connecting all the dots to ensure a good supply of healthy food is challenging, particularity in underserved and limited resource populations. Creating access to Good Food alone does not necessarily guarantee community members will purchase and eat it. Increasing food access is good, but increasing the consumption of healthy food is even better.

To “close the deal” with the consumer, we must truly and respectfully understand several factors including, how people in the community live, the constraints they live with, and how they shop. This information, when handled in a sensitive and thoughtful way is critical to creating an effective healthy food marketplace that considers what products should be marketed, at what price and to which specific consumers.
