1.4 billion people in the world are overweight, and 500 million of them are obese. By 2017 this number is expected to be 700 million. People are increasingly getting obese mainly because processed and fatty foods are getting cheaper and healthier choices more expensive.
This causes a huge health and wellness trend to spread among consumers, as they become more aware of products that benefit their health and physical appearance. A growing group of consumers are more appealed by low calorie and low fat claims on products when they go grocery shopping.
48% of the world’s consumers are actively controlling their weight through their diet and how they exercise. The tendency is clear, and consumers are seeking health products with high protein and fibre sources, as it is believed to prolong the feeling of satiety.
