The Millennial Impact: Food Shopping Decisions - US - July 2017
"Millennials represent the largest generation group; they are estimated to make up a quarter of the US population in 2017. They are also the largest share of primary grocery shoppers, meaning their shopping motivations and needs should be used as a guide to secure the greatest reach. Flavor experience and product exploration find appeal among this group. Millennials are at a lifestage that sees increased earnings and increased obligations; meaning, while enjoyment is key, price sensitivity continues to play a role. As can be seen across generation groups, convenience plays an important role in their food shopping behavior."
