The concept of personalization and getting products and services custom-tailored is expanding from fast-food restaurants and coffeehouses into all parts of the agrifood and health ecosystem. In addition to seeking even more unique consumption experiences, consumers are taking more active roles in maintaining their wellness. As expectations of personalized recommendations and customized products continue to increase, companies need to innovate to meet that demand, using technologies like cheaper, faster, and more accurate sensing, advanced data analysis capabilities, and new approaches to decentralized production. If you don’t embrace this evolution, you risk losing market share to the myriad small, agile, rapidly growing brands that are skilled at aligning with this trend and are already growing faster than established consumer goods companies. How should your company address this trend in its innovation efforts? What are the tools you should already be using to meet consumers’ evolving demands? How are others in your industry grappling with this uncomfortable area of growth? Join us for an interactive session on innovating for personalization – come prepared to hear from our Lux experts, to share your thoughts, and to hear from your peers on their own efforts and struggles. What you’ll take away from the day is a roadmap for how to shape a technology-based strategy that capitalizes on this personalization trend, and how to harness the potential of digital technologies for personalization across the food value chain.
