Coronavirus Impact on Food Behavior: Clean Label Eating on the Rise

As the novel coronavirus has made its way across the globe, we have watched the statistics mount describing its toll on human life and consumer markets. Much speculation is centering on what might become the new normal to help consumer product companies effectively pivot. As a behavioral research company, we are tracking not only coronavirus-impacted behaviors, but the whys underlying those behaviors. This disruption has led to two different research initiatives which are helping companies make those pivots.

First, we tracked a segment of U.S. primary shoppers called Clean Label Enthusiasts® throughout this initial period of the current crisis (and had been tracking prior to this disruption). These consumers are known to be lead indicators of broader shopping behavior change.

 

Secondly, we also took a November 2019 read of global primary shopper behavior as a baseline and compared it to a read in April 2020. This study compared the buying trends among primary shoppers in ten countries including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil, China, India, Turkey, France, Germany and the U.K.

Clean Label Enthusiasts

What did we find?

Around the world, interest in clean label products is on the rise. More than half of all primary shoppers in China, Turkey and Mexico are Clean Label Enthusiasts®—consumers who preferentially buy products that are free of artificial ingredients and that support ingredients from natural sources...

Webinar: Part 2 – How Clean Label Enthusiasts® are Changing Behaviors in Response to COVID-19

Presentation Date:   Thursday, May 21       2 pm ET, (11 am PT)

Presenters

Greg Stucky, Chief Research Officer InsightsNow Inc.  and Amy Mahony, Sr. Researcher, Qualitative Insights

We're continuing to track Clean Label Enthusiasts® (CLE) through the extended time of social distancing disruption  due to Covid-19.

Taking advantage of the opportunity as behavioral researchers to study how people change, we're looking for indicators of what this means for companies doing well now and those trying to come back when "normality" resumes. We rarely see such a major behavioral disruption. Change will occur, the question is what changes will happen more quickly and which will take longer to materialize. Which behavior shifts are just short term and which will become long term change?

When we see large behavioral disruptors, people change their mindset, their motivations change, and their priorities change. Clean Label Enthusiast® behaviors provide lead indicators into the behaviors which are changing now and are indicators of future change.

This webinar looks more closely at how mindsets and behaviors are changing:

  • Changes in the Mindset of Consumers
  • Shopping Behavior Changes
  • Tradeoffs/Product switches and why
  • Key motivators for behaviors

InsightsNow Ongoing COVID-19 Report Release- April 2020

InsightsNow releases ongoing study of change in clean living behavior in response to COVID-19 

Research examines behaviors of Clean Label Enthusiasts® during the pandemic by looking at previous, current and future mindsets, trade-offs, and motivators 

23 April 2020 – Chicago, IL – InsightsNow, a behavioral research firm, has announced an ongoing study with their proprietary Clean Label Enthusiasts® consumer research community, “COVID-19 Tracker on Clean Living Behavior.” The study provides insights into the swiftly changing landscape of clean living behaviors during the novel Coronavirus pandemic by tracking behavior pre-pandemic, current short-term shifts, and potential permanent changes. Insightsnow's Clean Label Enthusiast® (CLE) community of primary shoppers, identified to be driving the clean label movement, provided responses to give lead indicators into changing behaviors now—and those anticipated in the future.  

By leveraging our existing community of trendsetters, we are able to find answers quickly during a time when brands must pivot quickly,” said Greg Stucky, Chief Research Officer of InsightsNow. “One of the key aspects of this study is how we are able to look deeply at a leading set of primary shoppers and evaluate their behavior over time, including pre-pandemic. We are also discovering how the current health situation is putting increased momentum behind the overall clean label movement.” 

Results show a timeline of behavioral changes in response to COVID-19.    

  • Starting the week of March 9 in the U.S., the CLE community started making changes to their diets due to the novel Coronavirus. 36% of CLE were already making changes in vitamins and supplements (65%), and diet and lifestyle (48%). 
  • During the last week of March, the study began to track consumer emotions regarding shopping for grocery and household items with 45% reporting frustration and worry, with satisfaction levels decreased to only 12%. By the third week of April emotions were improving with only 25% reporting frustration, and satisfaction up to 33%.  
  • Higher purchase rates during the first week of April occurred in some categories, 15% buying more eggs than pre-pandemic, and 13% buying more bread products and salty snack items.  
  • During the second week of AprilCLE reported their day-to-day behaviors continuing to evolve22% utilized at home delivery of groceries most often, up from 9pre-pandemic. There were increases in purchasing of comfort foods like desserts and sweets. 
  • By the third week of April emotions were improving with only 25% reporting frustration, and satisfaction up to 33%. The percent increase in online ordering is starting to level off with 26% shopping for groceries online most often.  

Behavioral data for this ongoing report is being collected from the company’s proprietary research community of Clean Label Enthusiast® (CLE)—primary shoppers with a specific set of behaviors around the clean living movement that influence their buying decisions. Some of these behaviors include inspection of front and back product labels, ingredient beliefs about clean products, and advocating for the food industry.  This ongoing study includes 500 members of the U.S. based community, with insights gathered through qualitative engagements and quantitative surveys.

As consumers progress through stages of adjustment to the social distancing disruption, a silver lining here is the opportunity for behavioral researchers to study how people change in response to this situation. We rarely see such a major behavioral disruption.  Everyone is asking when and now we'll reach a new "normal."  It is a time where behavioral researchers have an extremely important role to help companies and people cope with the impact of COVID-19.

Change will occur, the question is what changes will happen more quickly and which will take longer to materialize. Which behavior shifts are just short term and which will become long term change? And how will they affect my company?

Fear drives significant change. When we see large behavioral disruptors, people change their mindset, their motivations change, and their priorities change. Clean Living Enthusiast behaviors provide lead indicator into the behaviors which are changing now and are indicators of future change.

This webinar looks more closely at how mindsets and behaviors are changing:

  • Changes in the Mindset of Consumers
  • Shopping Behavior Changes
  • Tradeoffs/Product switches and why
  • Key motivators for behaviors

Disruption in Market Research- Gaining Clarity through On-Demand Behavioral Research

The thought of being disrupted, of having to change a comfortable pattern of behavior, can lead to feelings of excitement and anticipation yet may also cause discomfort and concern.  In recent years, our ways have already been disrupted to the point where we have comfortable new behaviors: using on-demand services for transportation (Uber, Lyft), entertainment (Netflix, Hulu), and grocery shopping (Instacart, Amazon Prime).

These companies show us the best part about disruption – when you change people’s behavior, you meet needs and provide benefits people don’t even realize are possible.

Areas of Disruption

At InsightsNow we are very passionate about behavioral research, thinking to the future to create opportunities to disrupt. We’ve shown this passion of ours in each of three primary areas of disruption: technology, globalization and demographics.

  1. We started with demographic disruption by creating a behavioral segmentation to identify a community of forward-thinking consumer advocates for clean living.  (For this work, our CEO Dave Lundahl won the NGMR award, 2017 Change Agent of the Year.)
  2. Next, we layered on global disruption by understanding these consumers elsewhere in the world.  We changed the way we learn from them about clean label using an implicit/explicit approach to establish behavioral KPIs.
  3. Recently, we put our knowledge and insights together utilizing technology via the InsightsNow Behavioral App Store.  This platform provides on-demand access to consumer intelligence and baseline behavioral KPIs through on-line ordering of market research.

On-demand access to research is an important strategy to support business success. It provides for faster and more cost-effective insights so you better understand changes in product choices and translate information into clear and focused insights.  These new tools and services are reshaping how we do market research.  Professionals using these tools, based upon behavioral KPIs, will capture metrics and understand behavioral impact which drive disruption.

Contact us to learn more. We’d love to work with you, if we’re not already, to improve your research effectiveness and market success using on-demand market research.

Thank you!
