11th EDITION: HOW DO FOOD BRANDS COMMUNICATE? CHALLENGES AND TRENDS

MAY 29 2024


In this year’s edition we will talk about how food brands communicate through an introductory speech, a round table and the presentation of three success stories from partner companies of the Catalan Audiovisual Cluster. With the collaboration of Foment del Treball, Dircom and Cluster Food Service. This session will be in Catalan.

INITIAL SPEECH: TOP 10 FOOD AND BEVERAGE TRENDS 2024


Innova Market Insights will present the top 10 annual trends in the sector: key ingredients, the origin of the products, how the brand takes into account the environment or the health of the consumer itself. We will focus on the future that is vital for industry innovation.

Innova’s annual trends are based on extensive global consumer surveys, supplemented by market and new product data. Showing not only the factors that drive consumer decisions today, but also the ways in which brands can successfully adapt to the future.

By Marta Delgado del Río, Account Manager at Innova Market Insights.

ROUND TABLE

The concern about what we eat has never been as huge as it is now. Food brands face a greater challenge every day in how they communicate their products. This year at Zoom Brands we want to emphasize the challenges of this sector in front of a growing sensitivity of consumers who are looking for an increasingly personalized product.

How do they communicate the commitment to sustainability and the values that have such an impact on consumer perception and purchasing decisions? How is health becoming the center of their products? And the impact on the environment in the manufacture of products is increasingly an element of purchase decision? How innovations like AI are used to communicate? How is digital communication used to reach new audiences? What are the current trends?

With the participation of Javier Coromina, Communication Director of Idilia Foods (ColaCao, Nocilla); Sophie Pagnon, Chief Communication, Marketing & Impact Officer of Veritas; Àngela Folguerola Llorca, Head of communication, social networks, public relations and internal communication of Ametller Origen; and Lalo Agustina, Communications Director of La Menorquina.

Moderated by Bibiana Ballbè, journalist and CEO of TheCreative.
