Grocery shopping. The weekly trip is inevitable. Food runs out. Restocking the basics such as milk, bread and eggs should be a fast and easy trip; however, the choices are abundant. The longer you stay to shop and browse, the more you are likely to buy.
The Food Marketing Institute estimates that the average grocery store stocks approximately 42,000 items and that Americans make an average of 1.7 grocery store trips per week. Are you one of those 70% of people who buy things on those trips that are not on your list?
Easy for me that I know exactly what milk I am buying when I walk by the dairy case; I am in and out of the refrigerator in a matter of seconds and moving down to the yogurt section...again....knowing exactly what I am buying. Choosing “milk” is no easy task if you are entertaining change. You may choose from soy, almond, goat or cow; and in the forms of sweetened, unsweetened, low-fat, non-fat, whole, chocolate or vanilla. Are the cows hormone and antibiotic free? Is the the soy milk made from genetically modified soy beans and does it even matter? Are your kids with you cheering on the chocolate milk purchase?! Consumer demands, company marketing efforts, our USDA and industry lobbies all contribute to the abundance of choices, food (and food product) labeling and our confusion. Choices are good. The right choices are better.
Discover the answers to those questions. Come learn how to intelligently navigate the grocery store and make the best choices for you and your family; and understand the differences between food science and food marketing, including what’s hot and what’s not and why it all matters.
