Food and Consumer Trend News

The Challenger Project
Many customers contact us confidentially to visit their place of work to attend their R&D or planning meetings, as a fresh pair of external eyes. The reason being that many managers tend to get too involved in processes, launch dates and project deadlines and at times forget to stop and ask “why?, what is really happening in the outside world?, is this really what consumers want?”
We are asked to:
- Challenge product plans and thinking
- Present a market overview of key products, market trends, new technologies and consumer behaviour
- Provide names , details or suggestions of potential partners
- Use creativity & innovation tools and frameworks to generate new ideas
- Identify any challenges or potential pitfalls they may have missed in developing their new product or service.

My latest read which I am really enjoying is on The power of purpose by John O’Brien and Andrew Cave
This book provides practical steps to find your real company purpose to be able to engage with stakeholders and customers and remind you of why you exist in the first place. This trend will only continue to grow, so make sure you have thought through your purpose be it for your company, team or as an individual.
